RUSH is my favourite band but "Misplaced Childhood" wins easily.

And yeah... Misplaced Childhood has a place in my heart alright, its lyrics really speak to me, and I've even credit it to shape me as the person I am now. I am that kind of geek I guess. But you can't fight Onkel Fish's poetry.... To this day, I've found at least one Misplaced Childhood quote to use in almost every situation in my life.


De nada man. Yeah it a great album, no question. Possibly their greatest. And if the lyrics help you then right on.

Power Windows. I can't stand Marillion.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Power Windows over any Marillion album, despite far from being Rush's best (golden era for me was over after Signals). And I love neo-prog (Arena, IQ).

Power Windows is good, but Misplaced Childhood is a classic.

I saw both bands, Marillion and Rush, together on the Power Windows tour. And I'll still vote Farwell To Kings.

I haven't heard either one in a really long time so I won't vote.

Tough choice.
Today's preference is Power Windows.

Both have their merits.  MC is the most mature of all the Fish-era Marillion albums.  It is also the most coherent in terms of its sequencing and has some great songs.  PW also has some great songs but also a highly energized quality, as if the band is revitalized and refreshed, and entering a new exciting stage - that is why it garnered my vote.

I think Clutching is better with both its material and its sequencing. It cooks from start to finish. 
 
I find it just the opposite.  Half the time I can't tell what song on Clutching I am listening to and it climaxes sonically too many times.  I think it's over before it is even half done.  This means to me that it is not constructed very well even though I like the songs individually a lot.

Completely agree with those sentiments. However, any comparison with other classic era Rush albums would be more difficult to judge!
