Postby Liam » Thu May 17, 2012 2:07 pm

I figured I'd go along with the trend I started 5 years ago. LISTS. lol
Since nothing's going on down here (even with a new release on the horizon) WHY NOT?

RUSH - Working Man
FBN - FBN (love the way the G chord stretches. I play by ear, so that's how I know it. LOL)

FTK - Title track
Hemispheres - Hemispheres (has everything)
PW - Natural Science
Moving Pictures - Camera Eye
Signals - Chemistry (Just hooked me from the first listen)
GUP - Between The Wheels (although DEW holds a special place. That's the song that got me into Rush. I was 4)
Power Windows - Emotion Detector (Most fans HATE it. Again...special place)
HYF - Force 10 (The song just kicks ass)
Presto - Available Light
RTB - The Big Wheel (don't ask)
CP - Leave That Fucking Thing Alone. lol
T4E - Driven (Listen to it live...just fucking ROCKS)
VT - Earthshine or Secret Touch. (I seriously can't decide)
Feedback - Summertime Blues (I NORMALLY wouldn't include an EP, but again...what the hell)
S&A - Bravest Face (the lyrics hit me)
Clockwork Angels - Headlong Flight, The Garden, Clockwork Angels...oh hell...all except BU2B2. lol

Lost it in a move, I think.

Speaking of their older albums...I have noticed that Best Buy sells the remastered versions for $4.99...not all of them, but quite a few I have seen at two different locations recently. I'm guessing many of you have most if not all of them already, but I have some on LP and not on disc.

Hemispheres - La Villa Strangiato
PW - Spirit of Radio (My fav RUSH song overall)
Moving Pictures - Tie: Camera Eye and Red Barchetta (The performance of Red Barchetta included on Exit... Stage Left is my fav live version of that song!)
Signals - New World Man
GUP - Distant Early warning
Power Windows - Manhattan Project
HYF - Time Stand Still
Presto - Show Don't Tell
RTB - Ghost of a Chance
CP - Leave That Thing Alone
T4E - Driven
VT - Earthshine
Feedback - Summertime Blues
