A Farewell to kings - Moving Pictures...

From your list early to mid 80's, I guess.

Their career seemed to be played out in chapters. 2112 closed the first chapter and IIRC Moving Pictures closed the second, not counting the live albums that actually closed those chapters.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

My favorite Rush album is Presto.  The album which I consider their best is Vapor Trails.  Their longest string of masterpieces was Hemispheres to Moving Pictures, but the 80's were amazingly consistent.  And their live performances are better now than they've ever been.  All of these things make it practically impossible for me to pick one era.  They're all so good!

I know it's subjective, but to me it's frankly astonishing that anyone could consider Vapor Trails the best album they ever produced.

"Prog Metal" days (2112. A Farewell, Hemispheres), but these albums aren't prog metal.

I'd have to agree, given the issues with the mastering as well.

My favourite "era" is everything up to Permanent Waves, never been a big fan of Moving Pictures. (Sorry Andy).

I seldom see that kind of love for what is an underrated album in the Rush canon. Its mastering is quoted as being too "hot," but cranked up on a sound system there's nothing to stop anyone from rocking out to what is a fine roster of songs from start to finish. Neil's lyrics on VT are leagues ahead of what he penned on Presto through Test For Echo, apart from some songs on Counterparts and "Driven" from T4E. The vocal melodies are sterling and the guys are musically in terrific form.

A Farewell To Kings to Moving Pictures, but I love many others as well.

Indeed you seem to have your "eras" shifted compared to the standard view of "4 studio albums = an era" (at least until Hold Your Fire)

There is something between rock and metal. It's called hard rock. Confused
