Very strong era of RUSH music just below the synth era in terms of quality. I would/could never name just a single song as being a favourite or that much better than every other song, so I picked one that is in my group of absolute favourites that I doubted anyone one else would pick. And also because 'The World is a Cage for your Impotent Rage, but don't let it get to you' is one of my favourite lines of lyric ever, in any song.

It's so sad that you always go for the nostalgia picks, ignoring modern and great music.  You and the other 80's dinosaurs give Rush fans a bad name.

But the 80s dinosaurs are so spry compared to the 70s dinosaurs that are the vast majority on this board and REALLY give RUSH fans a bad name. Now be nice to me since I also think that Test For Echo went a ways to right the wrongs of Counterparts (unlike most here) and I consider Color Of Right one of the best songs not only on Test For Echo but of this whole era. I think you'll find that compared to the majority on this board, I rank the 90s material very highly. I just rank the 80s albums a little bit higher.

I was just teasing you a bit.  I'm not a fan of the synth era (I like most of the work, but it is Rush's weakest period in my mind) and I love the 70s stuff the most (which, of course, includes PeW as everyone knows).

I could have gone Dreamline, GOAC, Resist, T4E, Driven, or Half The World, but I went with The Color of Right.  Preachy, but awesome.

Nice pick.  It didn't quite get my vote here, but it's my favorite Test for Echo tune.

Did anyone notice that TFEman, when given the choice of ANY song from Test For Echo versus songs from Roll The Bones & Counterparts, voted Face Up! Seems like he's a lot more of a RTBman than a true TFEman. I mean unless RTBman was already taken as a username or TFE stands for something other than Test For Echo. Either way, I was happy to see Face Up get a favourite vote thrown its way, since it is another one of those much maligned songs from Roll The Bones that I love.

Went with Everyday Glory and about half (15).

The 2'nd question was easy.  The first was a slugfest involving Between Sun & Moon, Alien Shore, Speed of Love, Cold Fire, Dreamline, Bravado, Resist, Carve Away the Stone & Everyday Glory.  Very hard to pick a winner from that large batch of very good songs.
