The only difference in all that for me would be to substitute Between the Sun & Moon with Animate. And even then, BS&M would be my #4 tune on Counterparts.
SoL is in my top 5 of Worst Rush tunes, probably top 3.
EG sounds like it's trying to be part of a crappy soundtrack for a sappy TV movie...I'm imagining at the final scene or end credits. In this sense, I can see why Rush chose to put it at the end of the album. It just sounds like that's where it should be.
if any of you noticed, Everyday Glory is noticeably louder..especially the bass guitar....then the rest of the album. The intro cranks out of the speakers and smacks you in the face right away. A fellow Rush fan told me that they recorded that song differently then the rest on analog tape instead of digital format thus the sonic change.
I've always liked this song. But it does seem tacked on since, aside from the sonic mix differences I pointed out, lyrically it doesn't seem to go with the rest of the album.
