Rushology

The albums of Rush in my order of preference.
18Rush
Hold Your Fire


Tied with #17 as my least fave Rush record.
17Rush
Grace Under Pressure


Don't really care much for this one. Too much synthwork and balladry.
16Rush
Power Windows


Currently, I like about half the album. It has good songs, but it's just difficult to get into because of all the synthwork. I'll possibly get into it fully sometime later. Best song: The Big Money
15Rush
Vapor Trails


Tied with #14, this record shows Rush somewhat shedding their prog roots in favor of a more alternative sound. Rush's ability to remain making good music is flat-out impressive. Best song: Ghost Rider
14Rush
Snakes & Arrows


This is a very good record. It shows that Rush is one of those veteran bands that has been able to age gracefully, a skill that not many have (you can ask Pink Floyd and Genesis about that). Best song: The Larger Bowl.
13Rush
Test for Echo


A very good record. Very well made, very good overall. A worthy follow-up to Counterparts. Best song: Test for Echo.
12Rush
Caress of Steel


A very good record. Marked Rush's transition into a prog band. Best song: The Necromancer.
11Rush
Counterparts


A very good follow-up to the underrated Roll the Bones. Very good songs here, overall. Best song: Cut to the Chase.
10Rush
Rush


A very overlooked record. While Neil Peart didn't participate in this record, it clearly evidences the talents of Alex Lifeson. Best song: Take a Friend.
9Rush
Fly by Night


A very entertaining record. Shows Rush at their humble beginnings. Best song: Fly by Night.
8Rush
Presto


Tied with #7, it is just as underrated as that gem. This is Rush's "back in business album", which saw them developing more experimental and introspective music. Best song: Show, Don't Tell.
7Rush
Roll the Bones


Very underrated record. Take the time to hear it, and you'll find out how good it is. Best song: Roll the Bones.
6Rush
2112


It cannot be overstated how great this record is. Very well made, very sublime, this is Rush's first "real prog record". Epic musicianship, epic music. Best song: 2112.
5Rush
Hemispheres


While it's not my favourite Rush album, one can't deny it overpowers a lot of records by a lot of other bands. Flat out sublime, with excellent songs. Best song: Cygnus x-1: Book 2.
4Rush
Signals


Yes, I'm very biased with regards to this record. Sheer awesomeness, even though it is poppier than it's predeccesors. It has very addictive songs, and can be recommended to any Rush fan. Best song: Subdivisions.
3Rush
A Farewell to Kings


It's #3, not by inferior quality, but simply because of the nature of this list. This is a sublimely excellent record, and one of Rush's most influential records by far. Best song: Cygnus x-1: Book 1.
2Rush
Permanent Waves


This album is really tied with several of the others. I'll give it the #2 spot simply because of how well made it is. It incorporates reggae well on some songs, and is one of the bands most diverse records. Best song: Natural Science.
1Rush
Moving Pictures


Yes, it's the album that many consider overhyped and overrated. But it's a very personal record for me, and I still treasure it as one of my all-time fave prog records. Best song: The Camera Eye.
