I've loved Mystic Rhythms ever since 1986.  Part of its title wound up in my screenname.. no it's not my favorite Rush song but I dig it a LOT.

Yeah, "Slipperman" is a good tune. :P

:D  And the album it's from ain't half bad either...

MR by quite a bit.  The song just transports me into the world that Geddy is singing about.

Isn't it something how seeing a song performed live often changes someone's previously held opinion?

Think of the possibilities!

Think of how many Speed of Love lovers we might have here if only Rush had performed it live!  :codger: :16ton:

Good point.   It's important to test the outer limits of every theory.

The thumping bass making the arena shake was enough to sell me on the song.   It was actually one of the more enjoyable parts of the CA tour, and an unexpected one.

I'm going with MR.

You?
Aye, all day everyday.
Their best video, as well.

I thought so for a long time but over the years I've come to like the concert vids from Exit...Stage Left and the Moving Pictures studio vids more.

Other than those, the Subdivisions vid would be way up there too.
Best concept video.  Live(ish) footage is always cool.

I love both but am going with Mystic Rhythms. I also confess that I am more drawn to the synth era because that is when I discovered them.
