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

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

Don't really care much for this one. Too much synthwork and balladry.
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
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
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.
Test for Echo

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

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

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

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.
Fly by Night

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

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
