Where to start with Rush?

hey i really wanna get into Rush, but I don't have a clue where to start. I love the songs The Trees, and Tom Sawyer.

What could you recommend (individual songs please [tight budget])

Thanks!

Songs? Shit, man. Well, here's a smattering across their major eras:

Xanadu (1977)
The Spirit of Radio (1979)
Limelight (1981)
Distant Early Warning (1984)
The Pass (1989)
Test for Echo (1996)
One Little Victory (2002)
Far Cry (2007)

That's a start I suppose.

Well, normally either Moving Pictures or 2112 would be the best recommendations (albums) to give for someone to get into Rush.

But since you want songs: YYZ, Limelight, Freewill, The Spirit of Radio, and Closer to the Heart are great songs to start with, I guess. There's of course the epic 2112, too of course.

All great picks. I'd say throw in Anthem and Bravado as well.

Yeah, but I mean, throw darts at the Rush discography and you're gonna hit gold nine times out of ten, so I was trying to be brief. Those two are also excellent and do show a side of the band the ones I listed don't quite show.
