Yeah I did the same thing started with synths and worked my way back.....

Grace Under Pressure was the first CD I bought from them back in '84....maybe thats why I'm such a fan of the synth era cause Signals, GUP, Hold Your Fire, and Power Windows were in constant play mode on my stereo at that time....

But I can see how people who grew up on the rawer stuff especially 2112 all think after Moving Pictures Rush went downhill....

For me I knew Test For Echo was going in a direction where the appeal wasn't the same....except for One Little Victory Vapor Trails just wasn't doing it for me....

But I have about 16 choices to listen too even thou I'm not feeling any of their new stuff anymore....thats pretty good!
