I'm going to use this thread as a place to gloat about my Geddy autographs! Most people I know don't care. I hope you're at least amused.

I'm going with Grace To Grace BTW.

Anyone else here meet Geddy at the Menlo Park Mall (NJ) in 2000?
He was as friendly as you would hope for. I was lucky enough to be the 35th person in line. I think he was probably still pretty fresh at that point. Awesome memory. Thanks for reading my "gloatation".

"Runaway Train", "Still", and "Grace to Grace" are the titans on this album.

Being a newbie, I just found this thread.  I picked "Slipping" - love the way Geddy hums at the beginning of the song - I get all mushy! blush4.gif

For me, it's a tie between the title track and "Home On The Strange."  His riffing at the beginning of MFH is off the charts!   tongue.gif

Present Tense, although I've never really liked this album. Geddy's great on it, but it just can't compare with Rush

Good question... the album did not strike me at first, and I really did not give it enough listens - I gave up on it too soon...

I guess I need to break it out and listen to it again, then maybe it will grow on me...

I'm terribly ashamed, but it seems I only listened to this once when I bought it in 2000, and then put it on the shelf.  doh.gif

Since Friday night it's taken up residence in my car, driven around Leeds with me a few times, and taken me to Sheffield and back.  

I love this album.

I voted for Still, but Slipping and Grace to Grace are a close joint second, and the rest of the album is not far behind.

Wow Grace To Grace is winning. I thought it was the weakest track too.

Still is kicking my arse lately.

"Still." I love the way his voice gets all low and soft there toward the end. blush4.gif
