I've decided to buy a Rush album, but I don't know where to start. What would you guys recommend me to start with? The teenybopper in me says whatever album Tom Sawyer is on, but anything would be appreciated.
Most Rush fans will say Moving Pictures as it has Tom Sawyer, Red Barchetta, YYZ and Limelight which are awesome songs. Another album worth considering is Permanent Waves which has Freewill on it (best rush song IMO)
buy the moving pictures album that is where tom sawyer is. It is a great album the best songs in it are red barchetta and limelight although i like them all
Fly by Night, 2112 or Moving Pictures.
2112 is the best. I love it, so you should listen to it and love it. It doesn't really have any 'hits' other than 1/4 of the title track. But it's badass. If you want hits, probably Moving Pictures.
Get them all, they are all very unique, but I guess a good starting point would be Moving Pictures and 2112.
