It's looking like By Tor is going to win this easily, which is good as it means I can start the next thread sooner.

Fly By Night, it's a perfectly constructed solo, beautifully melodic, a story within a story a song within a song...

Anthem, smoking lead.

Honorable mentions to:
By-Tor, a great start to the long form instrumental section which would sound even better on the next album, with better solos too

and

In The End, for the bit where you can hear Ged singing along (as long as you still consider that part of the solo)

Rivendell shouldn't really be on the list, lol.

I should revisit this album, but I'll go with Bytor.

Although Anthem is my favourite song on the album, the jam in By-Tor & the Snow Dog absolutely smokes....and then  just when you think it's over, out of the chaos come even more guitar goodness

I hope my vote doesn't depress diatribein

By-Tor solo, no brainer! Fly by Night solo is just average to me, as that song is too.
