I prefer ALS by far. It doesn't have boring and repetitive moments as Hemispheres.

Both could be done in half the time they conjure up in the studio version., although they both contain a lot of energy, that makes it weak.
I should re-listen if I'd want to choose, tough choice.

That would be Hemispheres, wouldn't it? What's on Presence isn't exactly everyone's favorite (I've heard), and Hemispheres just shines (what about the repetitiveness).

Hemispheres is one of my favorite Rush albums.  Unlike most fans, the Side 1 Hemisphere's epic is my favorite part of the album.
listen to streaming stuff! no commercials!

Hemispheres by far

Led Zeppelinís Achilles Last Stand by a country mile. I am a fan of Rush, but never felt that their longer pieces held together too well. Iím much more into their 80s period (from Moving Pictures through Hold Your Fire).

Achilles Last Stand, easily. Even though my prog fandom would like to prefer Rush, I actually think Led Zeppelin has more monster songs than Rush, and Achilles is one of them. And no, cutting it in half just wouldn't do.

2 bands that may not be in my top 100.
But Achilles is my favourite Zep song.
Hemispheres is on one of 2 Rush albums that I listen to at all.
Zep gets the vote today.
Shake & bake.

Hemispheres is probably the only Rush album I own. Mine has the red disc. Remember buying it just for that reason. I don't even own any Zeppelin albums. Led who?
