The Trees, while being musically interesting, has lyrics that are just too damn goofy. Maybe it's the Canadian in me, but I'm not really into songs about maples and oaks, allegory or not. Why not write about salmon or cod? ("The Fish" sounds more proggy, but Yes would sue.)
Circumstances is a fine track, and LVS is one of their best, but side 2 of PeW just has this great mood about it. Love the fade-out guitar solo in Different Strings, and Entre Nous is one of NP's most human lyrics.

So side 2 of PeW by a hair  a leaf.

Hemispheres easily.

My votes would be:
Circumstances 7
Trees 8
La Villa 10

Entre Nous 6
Different Strings 4
Natural Science 10

Hemispheres for me.

Circumstances vs. Entre Nous is basically a draw - maybe a very slight edge to Circumstances.

The Trees vs. Different Strings - solid edge for The Trees.

La Villa Vs. Natural Science - solid edge for La Villa.

Adds up to a win for Hemispheres.

Hemispheres, but Natural Science is one of the best things they ever recorded, period.

A curse upon this thread for making me vote against Natural Science. But every song on Hemispheres is better than Entre Nous or Different Strings (which in fairness I do like).

For most people, it will depend on how the 1st 2 tracks of each Side 2 match up against each other.
For me, Circumstances and The Trees don't quite match up to Entre Nous and Different Strings.
I had to learn to love the former whereas I loved the latter from the beginning. And they still remain the preferred.
La Villa and Nat Science are monster tracks that most people love to varying degrees and over a large statistical sample of Rush fans would probably come out at a similar ranking. Ish.

So Perm W for me.

Nat Sci is the best of the six but the Hemi trio is 2-4 so Hemi FTW

Natural Science has its mighty hands around the throat of everything; only La Villa could put up a fight.
However, Circumstances would be better than anything else on Side 2 of PeW for me... so... I`ll still have to go with anything that has Natural Science on it.
