            I did go with 2112 in the end, but that was after a few minutes consideration where only the first 2 didn't really get a look in. I like tracks off both of those early albums but overall they don't compare to the later ones.

              Not a huge Rush fan to be honest, but 2112 is a great album....the title track is a monster.

                Back in the day I loved 2112 best until the day I heard Cygnus X1. Then I loved A Farwell To Kings until I heard Hemispheres. Its just a collosal piece of work. I still enjoy 90% of what these guys did in the 70's but Hemispheres was just a massive accomplishment in playing, and writing..plus it has the most notes played of any Rush album. That's what I call bang for the buck

                    Ah, this poll brings back memories. As a long-time Rush fan, I owned all of these 70's Rush albums in the 70's (and, of course, still have the original vinyl).

                    So, I love them all, but for me Hemispheres stands above the rest.

                      Caress of Steel for me, it was made in a transitional period where they were almost exactly on the spot where I want them. "I think I'm Going Bald" is unfortunately just plain terrible to my ears, but apart from that they have developed a poetic, mystical and daring sound while still clinging to a barren dry mix. On 2112 we see (or rather hear) the entering of the SUPER LARGE guitar chords with chorus and reverb made to fill huge arenas. It's not bad at all, I just think they overdo that part of their sound quite a lot, thankfully the songwriting and performance is still on an incredibly high level.
                      "I am the crazy man who lives inside your head, but I think I'm breaking through the wall... You are the innocent convicted of the crime, no one was ever there to catch you when you fall" (1992)

                      "In the summer days we flew to the sun, on melting wings, but the seasons changed to fast, leave us all behind... Blind..." (1969)

                        I'm not very surprised to see my vote - 2112 - currently leading the pack.

                        I may be nitpicking here, but Permanent Waves was recorded in late 1979 (released in 1980) so one could make at least a semi-valid argument for that album being included as well.

                        And in the more extreme nitpicking category, 1980 is technically a '1970's year' (for the same reason that Jan.1 2001 was the 1st year of the 21st century, not Jan.1 2000). Moving Pictures was recorded in late 1980 so - strange as it may seem - you could include that album too (it was released in 1981).

                          I love everything Rush, but my favorite album of all time is Caress of Steel, the whole record is just brilliant.

                              I voted for the first album because it's just a straight-ahead, no-nonsense, rock and roll album! Something they would NEVER do again, rightly or wrongly, for better or worse.

                              Having said that, I can certainly understand why a fan ( specifically a first generation fan ) would pick '2112' as being THE RUSH ALBUM of that decade. Without question that album is TRULY when Rush became RUSH! The accolades this album receives are WELL DESERVED! A timeless classic! Great thread!
