I suggest you buy their first and second live releases:
"All The World's A Stage" from 1976 and "Exit ... Stage left" from 1981.

As far as albums are concerned, you can probably start with 2112 or MOVING PICTURES. If you are looking for a good live album, EXIT STAGE LEFT is the way to go.

Any of their early and middle period albums (1973-81) are worth picking up before their more recent albums.

Chronicles is where I started as well. Good overview of their music. I was handed 2112 by my cousin in 1988 and was amazed. The other good live one is Different Stages

By or rent this first.

Arguably the best documentary of a band ever released. I also like the suggestion of R30, that really covers their entire career over the first 30 years.

Go with Moving Pictures. If you hear the live stuff first, it can sort of "spoil" the studio stuff, if you know what I mean.

2112 through Signals is some of the greatest music ever made. DO NOT start with Hold Your Fire, Presto, or Roll The Bones!

Being into long, progressive rock compositions a la Yes, King Crimson and Genesis, my two favorite Rush albums have always been Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres. Your mileage my vary.

Edit: Harking back to the vinyl days, make sure you get to "side 2" of Permanent Waves. Good stuff.

I swear by side 3 of "Exit Stage Left": Broon's Bane, The Trees, Xanadu. Quite a journey!
