I voted PoW. I think each album got progressively worse, actually starting as far back as Signals. I love Signals and like Grace Under Pressure alot but IMO Moving Pictures was their last truly superb album and each album after that was slightly more dissapointing than the last.
I do like the fact that they started using less keyboards after HYF but Neil's lyrics started to lose their flavor and Geddy's bass just got very stale and they started relying on loudness and trying to play heavy riffs (which is not their forte) and completely abandoning their progressive tendencies.
Dont get me wrong, I like every album Rush has ever done but the incredibly high standard they set for themselves, as with tons of other bands, was never obtained after their peak years.

Same here Shiney.

That album introduced me to Rush. It's just smothered in 'nostalgia' for me. How could I dare vote any other? Besides, it's a much much better album than some people have given it credit for.

I am the only one to vote Hold Your Fire. Not sure why but I just love this album, I had heard them before but was introduced to them during this album, so it holds nostalgic factor to me over the others. Plus I think it may be the most different of all the albums.

Wow. I'm not a huge Rush fan but I went with Roll The Bones. It's the album I remember the most songs from radio airplay.And the way I understand it,it's not a well-loved release.

I can't totally agree with that, I think Signals & Grace Under Pressure are both incredible albums...and even though different than Moving Pictures, just as relevant.

Once you get to Power Windows though, she goes downhill quick.

Grace Under Pressure. It's the band's best album, IMO.

if I added Test for echo it would have almost all the votes because I was reading ultmetal's review and I got the impression he was implying that it's the best album since Moving Pictures

You forgot to add "Grace Under Pressure". I would've gone with that one, but I will go with "Power Windows". "Hold Your Fire" was satisfactory, "Presto" was borderline awful, "Roll the Bones" was below average, and "Counterparts" was good.

Power windows for me, I like the music on Roll the Bones but the rap stuff ruined the whole disc for me.
