Rush's 'Grace Under Pressure' is my favorite. The execution and production, to my ears, is masterful. The kind of tension created in the music along with the conceptual and lyrical content is mind blowing.

My favorites are caress/2112/Farewell but most of the albums are pretty fantastic and have something new to offer. For later Rush I would agree Grace Under Pressure is a fantastic album, catchy, dynamic, full of great songs, lyrically insightful, etc.

The shows they have been putting on in the last few years havn't been bad either I've enjoyed them once in 2012 and once in 2013, well worth seeing for an Arena Rock thing.

Grace Under Pressure has to be my favorite as well. Caught them last year when they came to Cincinnati. One hell of a live show, even though some of the material from the new album is kind of boring.

Hemispheres and Farewell to Kings are my favorites but I love their early albums, pretty much everything in the 70's and 80's rules. Such a great band.

I'm working on a Neil Peart mustache, circa Hemispheres era. That shit was so tight. I call it a Rushtache.

70s- early 80s Rush for me.

Hemispheres is my favorite album from them.

No favorites. I don't think I could rush enough to turn this type of music off quick enough actually.

Maybe being Canadian myself it's one of those cases here where you cannot stand what's always played by the locals?

I would rather listen to only three AC/DC songs for the rest of my life then ever a Rush or Tragically Hip song ever again.

I think it is Lee's best vocal performance too.

First one I heard and it instantly became one of my favourite records ever. Never gets old.
