This topic might make people mad since I'm going to split it into three polls because '70s and '80s and even '90s Rush are like water and oil. So I apologize ahead of time, but I'm curious to hear what your favorite Rush albums are.

2112
Fly By Night
Rush

The rest of Rush for me is hit or miss...the hits are bulls-eyes but the misses are acts of unadulterated wankery which kills it for me....

Those above three, however, are in a league of amazing rock/metal few have reached.....

Caress of Steel, by virtue of "The Necromancer" alone!

Could have easily went with Hemispheres though.

I voted for the first Rush album. I think it is fantastic hard rock in the same vein as Led Zeppelin and I like underdog discs.

A good lp for sure, but had they stayed in that Zep vein they never would've distinguished themselves as the rock legends they are today, Neil Pert saved that band!

True...true, but we will never know. I love the direction Peart took them in though.

All the World's a Stage!

At the peak of their early game! Hard Rock meets Prog and pulls it off LIVE! Neil on Working Man alone seals this disc for me!!!

Voted for 2112. But Fly by Night and Caress of Steel are at the same range.

Easy polls for me today! 2112 is easily my favorite by far. Aside from a few songs, the first two don't seem very creative to me at all. I thought Budgie was a similar but much better band at that point.

I like all the albums on the list so it's hard to choose one, but if it had to be just one then.

Caress of Steel

for purely sentimental reasons.... It was the first album by them I'd ever heard.... I loved it.... aside from Bastille Day.. THE FOUNTAIN OF LAMENTH !!!!.... no one at the bridge !!!!


I'd vote for either Kings or Spheres....... too... I mean all of these discs have great appeal to me..... You prog you got prog, you want melody you got melody.... you want live you got it raw..!!

How 'bout 'Archives' !!!!

Just about anything 70's from them you can't go wrong with, saw them live from 73-75 3 times.

Can't really go wrong with any of these here. I voted for "Fly By Night", but I love "2112" as well.

I went with the debut. Not really because it's the "best", but it's my sentimental favorite because that's the album that really turned me into a Rush fan.

Plus I also taught myself to play guitar to that album...

Some truly great songs on there: What You're Doing, Finding My Way, Before And After, Here Again, etc.

2112 is the one I picked. It is the album that opened me up to more progessive music.
