    i too, love RUSH. However, IMO they started sucking when they sold out and came out with radio hits like Limelight, Tom Sawyer, and of course roll the bones.
    2112 Overture is all time, as are Xanadu, the Trees, Passage to Bangkok, Working Man, etc.

    If RTB is the worst, what's the best? Can it be a compilation / greatest hits?

    Rush is one of my all time faves, but I'm not interested in anything they did after Signals, and even Signals isn't all that great.

    Hard to say what my favorite album by them is. The timing of this thread is serendipitous; was just rocking out to Hemispheres earlier today. 'La Villa Strangiata' is definitely in my top two or three favorites by them.

    Rush doesn't even touch that big faggy lookin' dude Steve Vai.

    Or that cue ball messican Joe Saturnriana.

    Boo freaking hoo. The singer sounds like he just got kicked in the balls, and the guitarist is nothing special. I stand by my statement.

    Geedy hasn't been able to shriek properly ever since Signals, right around the time when Lifeson contracted Alex Lifeson Syndrome (you're a great guitarist who has proved that he can kick ass, but for some reason just plays really wanky homo shit). This was really when the whole band went downhill. They're still amazing live, tho. As long as they play all thier pre-Signals stuff.

    A Farewell To Kings, followed closely by 2112.

    Actually, The Analog Kid off Signals is rad.

    You're two-thirds of the way there. Neil Peart sucks, I could name 20 better drummers off the top of my head.

    THAT'S why i called you a moron, not because you think Rush sucks. Which they do. It was all over after 2112, (30 fucking years ago) face it peoples.

    Ga-head. I dares ya.

    He is absolutely one of the best ever. You may not like his body of work, but the skillz are undeniable.

    "Better" is subjective. I like guys who got the funk. neil is flash and speed, but i don't like him or it. Stanton Moore tops my list, we'd go from there.

    How can you not like a band that can play something like this live? Truly amazing musicianship.

    Fuck...4:48 is where Lifeson starts to send it.
    Shame it is in Mono...otherwise, that is some good live shit.

    As to the Xanadu video...holy Spinal Tap.

    Aren't they on tour right now? Thought I heard they were in Denver recently. RTB CD is like my Cult-Sonic Temple CD, a classic that is always kept in the car and every once in a while I have to crank it up. Listening to Roll the Bones always makes me crave a Henry Weinhart's beer, darn Oregon college roommates that introduced me to Rush.

    great band. Peart being the best is subjective, but dude has amazing skills and can flat kill it.
