AFTK is near the top (if not the top) of my 'underrated Rush songs' list.

Sure wish I had got to see it live at some point.
Weren't there rumors that they had tried it out in rehearsals on one of the last few tours but couldn't work it out (probably due to voice strain concerns)?

Like Trees.  Love Kings, so it got my vote.

The Trees, easily.  Not a fan of AFtK.
I find it to be very clunky.

Only slightly less silly, but much better constructed musically...

I'm not a big fan of The Trees.

A Farewell to Kings by a lot.

I think it was for the S&A tour that Farewell was rehearsed. Geddy having trouble with the vocals was the reason given for it being dropped. I understand why they didn't play it if that was the case. Would have been great to see live but not if it killed Geddy's voice trying to do it.

The best track on hems can't live up to the title cut from Rush's best album.

I did now! :P

tbh I have no recollection of ever seeing this poll before, I must've been busy that time last year.
