|Rush Tourney Rd. 3|
Round 2 was much more interesting to see unfold. Caress of Steel fought the good fight, bought was just edged out by counterparts (5-6). Permanent Waves and 2112 had worthy opponents, but ended both beat A Farewell to Kings and Signals (6-4) respectively. But there was no competition when pitting Hemispheres against Rush, and Moving Pictures against Hold Your Fire, both ending unanimously (11-0). I had to draw a group of 3, which I hope will be another close call with the 2 best 80's albums of Rush's by far (throwing in their hard rock revival for good measure), and in the second group 2 prog magnum opuses (opi?).
