Both of these songs include a great double time feel, and they are both on my current top 10 list. Which do you like more?

Prime Mover.

I like Dreamline but they killed it a bit for me overdoing it live.

If the rest of Roll the Bones was Dreamline, it would be a top 5 album for me. I love it so much

Prime Mover is good but Dreamline is on a whole different level.  Dreamline is iron-clad stuck in my top 5 Rush songs.

Dreamline.

It was more than worthy of having the regular spot it did in the live set.

When it comes to Prime Mover, I think the idea of the song is much better than the song itself, if that makes any sense.

Upon listening again...it's got lots of fun little bits to it.

:7up:

(at 3:16, it really gets going, but then 3:31 it takes a step backward...Dreamline is a lot steadier...more cohesive, maybe)

Prime Mover by a long distance....

Every time I hear that "We are Young" line in Dreamline I just want to shout back "No you're not!"

Dreamline is a fantastic song. Easily one of their very best ever, any era.

And yet I voted for Prime Mover. It's always connected with me perfectly.

Both songs are the best off their respective albums easily. On another day I'd vote Dreamline, but not today.

Prime Mover was a song that I was really drawn to when I first got into Rush.

The musings of Aristotle are rare subject matter for a rock/pop song.

Dreamline is the best song in the post p/g era.    Prime Mover is an underrated song from what I've come to see as an underrated album.
