Grace felt like a slap in the ears for me at first, but I warned to it pretty quick. At that point I had not heard Signals, so I was kind of expecting another MP. I was still getting my head around how Rush were evolving over time.

These days GUP is certainly my favourite of this batch.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Signals. High class change of style.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Gave Power Windows some love because it was trailing.  All four of these are awesome albums.

This was one album that gave me a lot of trouble many years ago. I found it rather emotionally detached and completely uninvolving, but, now, it's one of my absolute favorites. It does get better with age and the lyrical themes discussed in Power Windows have as much relevance today as they did in 1985. This album definitely does grow on you with each successive listen. Lifeson has many great moments on this album. His solo in Emotion Detector is a miniature masterpiece within itself. Anyway, great album that does reward the listener over time.

Really a Signals/Graace tie. The former has the best synths, Gedd's best bass tone, the best drum sound along with Moving Pictures. The latter has great, edgy, aggressive songs that kick you simultaneously on both sides. Signals has been my favorite for many, many years, but what the hell, I'll throw in my vote for P/G.

Signals

Sole survivor. No witness to the crime. I must act fast to cover up. I think that there`s still time. He`d seem hopeless and lost with this note. They`ll buy into the words that I wrote.

the best album that symbolized this period its grace under pressure, but under personal circumstances, it's Signals for me.

Tough choice between Signals and Power Windows, I chose Signals in the end.
