"Ghost of Cain" and "Thunder and Consolation" are utterly superb albums with the latter being their best work IMO. Didn't click with Sepultura's version of the Hunt though and I'm normally a fan. I didn't think Max's vocals fitted with the song.

I'm going to add in "Triumph" ... yep, they could be cheesy AOR, yep, they never did get too big outside their native Canada, and yes they were overshadowed by Rush, but they were phenomenal musicians and incredibly talented vocalists, their lyrics were intelligent and their songs were an impeccably written and eclectic mix of traditional blues, bits of jazz and hard rock ... with utterly beautiful spanish guitar instrumentals scattered throughout their albums. They may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they deserve more recognition than they got thats for sure.
