One of my all time favorite rush albums. Next to the obvious (2112) of course.

Caress Of Steel is my favorite album by Rush as well. Raw and quite Primal. Experimentation musically on Rush's behalf helped better define progressive rock with the two separate releases of Caress of Steel and 2112.

Albums other than the 2nd to 5th releases by Rush are just (So..so). In comparison.

If I received a $ every time I heard you sing the praises of this Rush album, I'd be a very wealthy man by now.

I want in on that cash as well...

"The Fountain of Lamneth" is easily the most unique long-format song in Rush's catalog, and I rank it very highly as well. Compared to “2112” and “Hemispheres” (Rush’s other side long epics), "Lamneth" is a lot different. Those two share the same structure and are much more aggressive than “Lamneth,” which is much more lethargic and almost dreamy in nature. It sounds very Rush, but at the same time, it sounds like nothing else they created before or after. It is also much closer to the sound of the original 1st wave of progressive rock, which Rush was not officially a part of since they didn't arrive on the scene until 1974, and the 1st wave of progressive rock peaked in 1972- 1973.

I personally always liked The Necromancer over The Fountain of Lamneth. The storyline that accompanies the song musically resonates for me much better than The Fountain of Lamneth. Don't get me wrong, The Fountain is an outstanding single. But I would rank it 2nd after The Necromancer for originality and experimentation.
