Yes was the debut in this poll series, and the next episode belongs to Rush from Canada. Which out of their studio catalog is the best? Now, let the fray begin....

Signals has been my "favorite" for a long time, but I could just as easily pick Moving or Grace, probably...

I'm going with Hemispheres just ahead of Permanent Waves. None of their albums are perfect, but they're a group that I respect for their consistent output of quality material.

This... not the biggest Rush fan but I can appreciate them and listen once in a while.  Hemispheres for me.

It's cool that Signals and Grace Under Pressure are holding the top 2 spots. I voted for the latter myself

Signals in the lead?  Get a screenshot of that too.  Shocked

For me, it's Hemispheres, followed by Vapor Trails.

None of their albums are perfect and most of them sound the same to me--same formula---unlike my favorite groups. This is the problem of any three piece for me.
But Grace Under Pressure seems to be their most solid album doing what they do best--catchy power pop --verse/chorus repeat---with a proggy flair.

I have been getting many Rush albums lately, and even though I have enjoyed them (enough to keep getting them), I kind of agree with you... when I listen to one for the first time, I go... oh yes, that's the Rush sound. Albums sound too similar from one to the other. However, I'm surprised 2112 and Moving Pictures are so low on the voting. I always thought those were the most loved ones. As a matter of fact, I'm between the two of them... 2112 because of the title song, and Moving Pictures because it's the one I like best as a whole (well, the last one was excellent as a whole too, and did have a kind of fresh sound too). I'm going with 2112 because it's behind in the voting... though it's a bit early yet, the voting may yet change drastically in a little while.

Though I'm afraid I haven't got Signals yet... it would seem I have to get it given the voting.

Glad to see Hemispheres is leading at the moment. It has always been my favorite.
