Post seems like an interesting pick. I've never listened to Rush, but I can see how each of the other albums would make it on this list.

Cool Geddy Lee and I have the same favorite Led Zeppelin album. Rush's debut album was super inspired by Led Zeppelin, but there doesn't seem to be much LZ1/blues influence outside of Working Man.
Or is it now?

He's a huge Bjork fan, or at least he was back in the '90s.

Me neither. Unlikely I ever will.

Always good to see other people's favourites, though.

Rush is one of those bands that gets shit on so much that you're never inclined to check it out (like U2). Besides, I've caught enough Tom Sawyer on the radio to have my mind made up.

Really? I see Rush consistently rated as one of the most talented rock/prog bands ever. The only criticism I usually see is about Geddy's vocals. Whereas some people hate U2 because Bono wears sunglasses.
Or is it now?
