I have to disagree with you regarding Grace Under Pressure. It's a fantastic album, and arguably the darkest album they ever recorded.

You should definitely give it another listen Invoke.... Time has been a lot kinder to it than it gets credit for. It's arguably the "lost classic" in the Rush catalog. Four out of five stars.

Yes, I have a slight preference for 80s Rush over their 70s output as well.

Overall, the songwriting improved tremendously in the 80s. Also, their uncanny ability to draw from contemporary influences and incorporate them into the "Rush sound" was absolutely astonishing!

Sadly, we'll never see a band of Rush's caliber ever again.

Yes its one of my favourites!

I think it was left ALL ANALOGUE and it sounds great!!

Moving pictures and signals were digitally mixed and dont sound that good ON THE RECORD.
