Rush Chronicles
Typically with a band as good as Rush, I urge others to steer clear of "greatest hits" compilations. However, this wonderful double-LP was my first taste of Rush, and for that I will forever owe a debt of gratitude. Granted, there are some glaring omissions like "Xanadu," but what you get here is an excellent sampling of the radio-friendly songs, which serve as teasers to get the listener to dive into the albums proper. Moreover, Chronicles was released long before the "loudness war," so what you get is a dynamically rich record, albeit somewhat quieter than the Retrospective set.

Rush Vapor Trails
Sub-standard songwriting, lack of guitar solos, and poor mastering plagued this album. There are some moments where the album shines, but those moments are few and far between.

Rush Presto
This album sits in the middle of the road for me. "Show Don't Tell" debuts Geddy's use of a five-string bass and philosophically offers up a lot to think about lyrically, "Chain Lightning" has some great rock moments, and "The Pass" has a very memorable message coupled in a great melody. The second side of the album just doesn't do it for me, though. In fact, "Superconductor" is one of those songs that gets jammed into my head and requires a lot of effort to expunge.
