What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too
I didn't like it myself.
Signals is wildly overrated, IMO. If you like their synthier style, check out Power Windows next.Try Permanent Waves next. If you really like synths then try Signals.
I believe this sentiment to be true. Yes, their 70's output is a little more long winded and more in line with what you'd expect from a 70's prog band, but I find Moving Pictures to be just as complex as their 70's output. And Moving Pictures was kinda the album for Rush. It's not like they had a different vocalist in the 70's, or they were any less weird.But really, if you don’t like Moving Pictures, then what are your chances of liking any Rush at all...?
Power Windows would not be the best album for a Rush fan starting out. Signals and Permanent Waves are pretty accessible.Signals is wildly overrated, IMO. If you like their synthier style, check out Power Windows next.

You will, trust me.Btw you promised me that I would love Rush because I'm a Dream Theater fan. I'll listen to one of those you mentioned shortly.
Thanks, this is helpful.You will, trust me.
1. Moving Pictures
2. Permanent Waves
I want more prog:
2. A Farewell to Kings
3. Clockwork Angels
A bit simpler:
2. Snakes & Arrows
3. Fly By Night
4. Roll the Bones
1. Power Windows
2. Grace Under Pressure
Test my patience:
1. Caress of Steel
2. Hold Your Fire
Except Signals and Permanent Waves aren’t consistently strong albums. Each has 2 good songs and a lot of filler, IMO. Meanwhile, Power Windows is gold from start to finish.Power Windows would not be the best album for a Rush fan starting out. Signals and Permanent Waves are pretty accessible.
Nah. If they’re coming in cold, that 1-2 punch of “Invaders” and “Children Of The Damned” might send them packing before they get to the good stuff. I’d start then on Seventh Son for sure, if it had to be a full studio album.You can make the same argument with TNOTB but it’s still a better starting point for new fans than SSOASS.
