As if the world needs another ranking of Rush albums…but we haven’t done one yet so here goes. The definitive (maybe) Prog Report Top 10 Rush albums.
10. Fly By Night (1975) – The second album and the first one with Neil. They still sounded a bit like Zeppelin but a lot of it still holds up.
9. Power Windows (1985) – The last really great album from the 80’s before they started making albums that were a bit more commercial.
8. Farewell to Kings (1977) – The 5th album and Rush’s first US gold-selling album. Very diverse with the short “Closer to the Heart” and the epics “Xanadu” and “Cygnus X-1”.
7. Grace Under Pressure (1984) – Another step forward with synthesizers, building off of Signals
