That being said, there are a lot of great songs on it. The Pass is still probably in my list of top 3 Rush songs. War Paint is fantastic, especially from the perspective of a kid in middle school. And Superconductor has a fun, rock-pop feel to it (which is the point of the whole song).
I know that Presto is a lot of fans' least-favorite album (I think even the band members have expressed their disappointment with it), but I really do wish they would come out with another Presto-like album.
I always like "Red Tide" and "Hand Over Fist", those two make into my personal Rush setlists quite often. They "Presto" the song live the last time i saw them...i've gained more respect for it since than.
I never would refer to it as my least favorite...gotta go Caress Of Steel there.
