TBE is the better song, and it sounds great live.

Alien Shore is one of RUSH's best songs in terms of groove.

The Body Electric is so much better. Alien Shore isn't a freckle on its cheek.

It has a decent instrumental and lyric, but there are much better cuts on the record.

Talk about not understanding praise for a song.  EG is as filler as filler can get.
