You know the drill: read, vote, discuss.

My vote for the better trio is easy. But somehow I don't think it'll be a blowout. My pick could even lose.

I can't stand Finding My Way, but like Bastille and Anthem pretty much.
One Little Victory(on VT Remix) is OK, but I don't care for it that much, Far Cry and Caravan kick ass a lot.

This is very tough, but I'm going with first trio, though FMW(as any song from the Rush debut) is a total dog for me!

The first trio easy. For the record when I hear Finding My Way in my head I always hear the live version. Honestly the same is true with the other two as well...

Live might be a different story, but as for the studio releases, it's the latter trio for me. My fav being Caravan.

It's tough to choose between Finding My Way, Anthem and Bastille Day - each one get an A grade from me, but right now, as I type, Finding My Way would be tops

I pick the first trio.  Fairly easy choice for me as I'm not high on OLV or Caravan (both are below A-)

Far Cry is my #1 followed by Bastille Day.

Tough choice between Anthem and Bastille but Finding my way is kind of a filler song for me.

Every song is a a- for me except FMW. well maybe b, b+ but I'm in a generous mood.

I prefer the first trio, Caravan is my favorite out of the six. All of them get at least A-'s.

I was wrong. Looks like it's a blow out after all.

I AM surprised that neither Far Cry nor Caravan have more A- or higher grades than Finding My Way. Personally, I prefer FMW over FC and Caravan but I thought that wasn't the common opinion.

This was very difficult for me, I almost couldn't vote.  the early three are great when I'm in the mood for straight ahead rock and the later three for when I feel like listening to something more layered.  I only voted for the first group because Caravan brings the latter three just a hair below the first three, but really it's pretty much a tie for me.

First three and it isn't even close, with my favourite being Bastille Day, though I like the other songs in that group very much.

Nice idea!
How about: "Middle of the 1st 3 80s albums vs Middle of the last 3 80s albums"?

or: "Middle of the Last 3 albums vs the Last of the Middle 3 albums notwithstanding the moon being conjunct with Jupiter or occurrence in any month containing an 'r'."

First two easily.

Bastille Day

And all three of the early album songs get the A- level score and only Caravan gets it out of the recent albums.
