Of all the Rush albums this one grows on my the slowest. I have a lot of issues with Presto, too, but PoW doesn't get my blood flowing, although The Big Money does.

Great album, IMHO.

I'd add Territories to your list, too.

Power Windows is another album which is difficult to explain what isn't quite right with it. The songs are great and the production is crisp. I think, for some reason, it just doesn't seem to hang together.

That said, I think that Manhattan Project and Marathon are fantastic.

Manhattan Project is Way Up There on my RUSH list. Maybe 3rd or 4th all-time.

It's not my absolute favourite but it is a kick ass album. I love it. The Big Money, Grand Designs and Middletown Dreams are the songs that really do it for me. A very honourable mention goes to Mystic Rhythms as well.
