Signals songs, easily.  The three best tracks in this match-up are the Signals ones.

Territories and Grand Designs are pretty good but they're not my favourites on Power Windows and they lose this match-up for Middletown Dreams.

Signals all the way.

If it was Territories, Manhattan Project, fill in the blank....it would make me ponder a bit.

I love territories and middle town dreams, but grand designs is one of Rush's worst songs imo, so going with Signals

The 3 best songs in this matchup are all from Power Windows.  Countdown is close but its still in 4th place.  The other 2 Signals songs are not that close - not at all.

Power Windows gets my vote.

PW trio, easily.  I like all 3, whereas Countdown is the only Signals track that does anything for me.  Didn't really get Grand Designs until seeing it live on CA tour.  Now think it's really an excellent song aside from the obnoxious synths.

I like Countdown and Grand Designs. The others much less, but of these choices PoW's all the way.

Signals is my favorite album but the trio here from PoW are the best songs on that album so they get my vote.

It's the Power Windows tracks for me. The best songs on Signals are among Rush's best and are better than anything on Power Windows, the lesser songs are not. Song for song, Power Windows is more consistent and complete. I think this poll/comparison backs my opinion.

    I love watching musicians playing music. Their passion for what they do is written all over their faces.

Any poll with The Weapon on it gets my vote.

The Weapon is the only song from Signals out of these 3 that I like, so Power Windows all the way in this poll.

PoW for me.

The weapon is great but Chemistry and Countdown drag it down slightly.

I LOVE all 3 of the PoW tracks
