2. Turn the Page
3. Double Agent
4. The Pass
5. Afterimage

Crushed like a rose in the riverflow.

'Gonna kick some gluteus max!'

No words can describe how stupid that lyric is. I think just that one lyric shows why Rush can't and shouldn't rap.

The only Rush songs I liked from that era were on Sieges Even's A Sense of Change
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Every song on Grace Under Pressure apart from "Kid Gloves" and "Red Lenses" is a personal favourite.
Really enjoy "Grand Designs", "Manhattan Project" and "Mystic Rhythms" from Power Windows.
"Force Ten" and "Time Stand Still" are the big standouts for me from Hold Your Fire.
While all pretty decent, I wouldn't count any track from Presto among my favourites.
I like "Roll the Bones". Embarrassed Also "Dreamline" and "Neurotica". 
"Animate", "Nobody's Hero", "Alien Shore", "Leave that Thing Alone", all stuff I enjoy from Counterparts.
Similarly to Presto (although with less decent songs) there isn't really anything that stands out for me in Test For Echo.
Bigger on the inside.

These are at the top of my list for this era

Between The Wheels
Emotion Detector
Mystic Rhythms
Time Stand Still
High Water
Available Light
Dreamline
Between Sun & Moon
Double Agent
Alien Shore
Driven (although I prefer the Different stages live version)
Totem

Actually, I could include the entire Power Windows album, sans Big Money

1. Distant Early Warning
2. Alien Shore
3. Red Sector A
4. Between Sun & Moon


5. Manhattan Project???

I don't know. Besides a few songs on Grace Under Pressure and Counterparts, there wasn't much of Rush's output that I loved after Signals until 2007.
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

Most of the songs on Grace Under Pressure would take this era of Rush for me, and there are a number on Counterparts that are great ("Nobody's Hero", "Alien Shore" etc).

However, "Available Light", the last tune on Presto, is for me one of the best of this era.

For me, the best of this time period would automatically include every single song on Grace Under Pressure. I love that album from start to end. 

Then:

Side A of Power Windows, plus "Territories" and "Middletown Dreams"
Side A of Hold Your Fire, minus "Second Nature," plus "Lock and Key" and "Turn the Page"
"Show Don't Tell," "Chain Lightning," "Presto," "Available Light"
"Dreamline," "Bravado"
Every song on Counterparts minus "Animate," "Stick It Out," and "Everyday Glory" 
"Driven," "Time and Motion," "Totem," "Dog Years," "Resist," "Limbo"
