COS and Hemispheres are my favorite albums.  Power Windows is probably about 5th from the bottom.  Easy choice.

Necromancer and Lamneth are my two favorite songs.  Lakeside Park up there too (but not a top 10).  Not sure if any PoW tunes would crack the top 50 for me.

Power Windows is my second favorite Rush album behind 2112.  Perhaps 3'rd behind HYF (depending on the mood I am in that day).  CoS is my next to most disliked Rush album.  I only dislike VT more.

Obviously I voted for Power Windows.

As for the songs, I basically know my top 10 Rush songs and none of the songs would fall into my top 10.  As for my 2'nd 10, that's hard.  I have never really figured that out exactly.  I have a good idea what would fall in there but not an exact idea.

I love all the songs on Power Windows and I will admit I also love Bastille Day & Lakeside Park.  So do any fall into my 2'nd 10?  I voted for Big Money & Mystic R.  Big Money is the stronger candidate.
