I hear ya. But I don't necesarrily dis-like Pleasant Shade, its just kinda uneven. The two FW albums you mention are the ones my Prog buddy recommends to me, except I can't find copies of either.
Images and Words is a nice album, except for Metropolis, its kinda of toned down for general consumption. I don't fualt the band for this at all as DT is still over a lot of peoples heads.
Awake however reminds me of Van Halens Fair Warning (fave VH btw) raw, gritty music the way they wanna play.
Your right, thats an impressive list of bands to like and I would agree that Rush is the granddaddy of all Prog/Metal bands; almost thirty years and still going strong. Can't get enough Different Stages; an incredible album.
