i remember being indifferent when i first heard it but it grew on me. to this day i still say that it's criminally underrated.

I remember hearing The Pass and almost being moved to tears. Powerful. Beautiful. I loved pretty much the whole album immediately with the exception of War Paint and Superconductor.

I remember being frustrated with the songs being sort of start - stop - start again, disjointed between verses, middle eights and choruses. I'd sort of get into a bit of a song but just as I was going this is good, it would stutter with a weird change. It didn't flow like earlier Rush.

I remember liking it but probably because it was Rush and not because of the songs. It was my fifth new Rush album and the first one to contain a song I didn’t like. Superconductor. Still don’t like it. The album would be better if it were recorded a decade earlier by someone else.

I loved it and still do. I wasn’t much of a Rush fan at the time, a few albums aside (MP, Grace)...and so I took a complete gamble on Presto when it was released...purely on impulse and really dug it, the new vocal approach, etc.

The Pass remains a top 10-15 Rush song for me.  Amazing cut.
