Top 5: Best Rush Albums

What is there to say about Rush? These Canadians are some of the most eccentric yet talented musicians in progressive rock. With a career lasting over forty years, and having released 20 albums over that span, Rush has completed what some have deemed their last major tour. Their discography has gone through so many changes in sounds and influences, ranking them is a difficult task. But leave it to Crash And Ride Music to share with you their greatest albums.

  1. As you are aware Rush fans are fairly vocal in their love for this band, and any attempt to rank their albums is going to cause some…ahem, conversation. Other than Moving Pictures, of course, which is always going to be #1. The rest of my top 4 would be:
    #4. A Farewell To Kings
    #3. Permanent Waves
    #2. Hemispheres

  2. I totally agree with ianbalentine, this post oughta create som comments on your site, alright! This is a strong list, I can’t argue with any of it. I did a full Rush series of everything I owned at the time, and I came away with an appreciation of the whole pile of it. I dunno if I could choose. Still, good on ya for giving it a go!
