Tough one .. But I give Book II the nod because a) there's more of it and b) the I have memory and awareness part might be my all time favorite Rush moment

Brutal.

I love both, but the win goes to Natural Science. It spends more time in my Rush top five than any other song.

A snowboard company makes a very expensive board called the Cygnus X-1.   You know where my vote goes.

NatSci is absolutely perfect. My favorite Rush song with words.

Hemi is a tad too long and repetitive.

I always thought that. The most progressive Rush song is very good, but not perfect to me, repetitiveness drags it down a bit.

Although they are both awesome songs, I can easily pick "Natural Science" for this one. It's a Top 5 Rush song for me, and has some of my favorite fills and lyrics in Rush history.

Over on Maidenforums theres currently a Build A Band poll and for guitarist its down to Alex and Tony Iommi. Had to vote Lerxst but Tony is a  rock giant.

Natural Science is perfection.  Hem comes up a tad short...but it's still greatness.

Natural Science.  Such great guitar work.  I've often envisioned Alex breaking out the 1275 for this one.

The epicness of Hemi does it. NatSci is great but too short.

This was so hard to pick...one epic song from the 1970's vs. one epic song from the 1980's.
