It most certainly is not! Lol.



Ummm, I must admit I have a healthy admiration for Stargazer but I’m not in love with it. Subdivisions on the other hand catches my heart and mind every time.

Subdivisions is a decent Rush song, I really like it ..... but Stargazer is a 'holy grail' of rock music.

Subdivisions by far....it's lyrics are incisive and powerful whilst Stargazers are D&D nonsense.

Both great songs but Stargazer wins for me. Guitar solo is mind-blowing.

Really? It's Dio's controlled banshee vocals in the 70s vs post-MP Rush. For many that doesn't mean much but for the duck...yeah, I'm not surprised.

Bottom line: The one that's more metal is the one you'll find the duck siding with.

As for me, I'm going in the opposite direction.

Normally, I'm Team Rush in these affairs, but "Subdivisions" has entered the over-rated, over-played portion of my music brain and has lost its charms, while "Stargazer" is peak Blackmore-Dio, so it gets the nod.
