    I see a lot of songs from those albums come up that people hate... but I dig. Sounds about right.

    My problem with Dog Years is that it seems to have no solo or instrumental section of any kind.

    Yes!

    You just have to get busy with the facts: "Where's My Thing" is the second best Rush instrumental. And that's a fact from Nome to Rome, boy. Yet, "Leave That Thing Alone" is a close second, and in some parallel universes is actually better. We just don't happen to be living in one of those universes.

    A grievous album, any way you slice it. I don't care how much better a remaster might sound, it's still polishing a turd with this one. I don't listen to Rush for "mature", "songwriter" standard verse/chorus stuff. Women who would flee the room at the sound of "Bytor and the Snow Dog" or "Cygnus X-1" LOVE this album, 'nuff said?

    Great album. As is Presto. (materially anyway)

    I have the original, the Atlantic remaster and the Audio Fidelity release (I don't have the vinyl reissue, but I have the original vinyl release)

    Don't expect miracles, but the bass on the Audio Fidelity CD is a bit warmer and punchier.

    The songs are so much better live.

    That said Neurotica, Face Up and You Bet Your Life are on my short list of least favorite Rush songs even considering the Roll The Bones theme.
