Okay, cool. I do really enjoy YYZ and Limelight, and The Camera Eye is probably my favorite on the album. Unfortunately, it sort of hampered me from moving forward in Rush's discography (prior to this purchase, I was possession of their lineup from 2112 to Permanent Waves).
Likely one of my issues was that I was going into it with the knowledge that I was already not a big fan of Tom Sawyer or Red Barchetta. There was also the fact that since over half of the tracks were radio hits, I knew over half the tracks during my first listen. Though the remaining three tracks were pretty good, I certainly wouldn't call it their best.
I did pick up Clockwork Angels when it came out, though, and I was pleasantly surprised with their musical direction. In time, I"ll probably give Power Windows a shot, as well as Signals.
Also, thank you very much for your answer! Just being able to talk about it with someone (who's not an online critic) has put my mind to rest for the time being, and I greatly appreciate you putting your time into assisting me with my quandary.

You're very welcome!
Though you're definitely right about the over playing some of the "bigger hits" on moving pictures (thanks for running that through my head). I think it plays a great impact on how we think of not just the first four tracks on moving pictures, but all songs in general if we over listen to them. Hearing the same thing over and over again does get tiring.
Like I said before though, their music is so vast and covers many different categories. Take Clockwork Angels for example, it sounds a lot heavier compared to Moving pictures and you can tell just by listening to each individual album by Rush that they tried deviating away from the last by including some new concept into their style of music. Ultimately I think this is why some people have a hard time appreciating all they have to offer as musicians because of how broadly they cover the music spectrum, but that's just my opinion.
I've seen them live three times and each time they seemed to be far better than the last. As you can tell I love Rush, but I don't really talk about them much because I don't know many people who have a relative interest in their music like I do. So I also thank you for giving me the opportunity to try and analyze your questions earlier. I enjoyed it!
It took me a while to appreciate all they had to offer because of the complexity that comes with them, but in the end I think I can safely claim that they are by far my favorite band. Besides, if it weren't for Geddy Lee I don't think I would have picked up a bass guitar in the first place. Which has me thinking that playing an instrument might influence why I think so fondly of them, but again that's just a thought. Thanks again!

Maybe it's different for your demographic? I know here in Canada it goes Kindergarten, then grades 1 to 12. Preschool comes before kindergarten and is optional. Although in Europe I believe both preschool and kindergarten are considered the same thing, but someone call me out on that if I'm wrong.
