Much as I hated to do it TMMB gets the ax.
Winners elimination cool.
SOCN is enough as it is, keep it out of other threads.

The poll question it's easy. If it's an SOCN topic put it there. I have too much to say and not enough time I'm willing to use to debate there, but I'll do the polls happily.

That place needs more on my side of the aisle.

If it's Rush keep it in Rush.

If it's music but not Rush put it there.

Our are you asking what kind of poll we want?

I want all of them. I like seeing how people think about everything.

Really strange to me that The Main Monkey Business made it this far. I seem to recall people being annoyed that it made the R40 setlist instead of something else, and it was also definitely the bathroom break song for many people at my concert.

Far Cry for the win.

I dig TMMB, some of Alex's best work. And I would love to hear the longer jam that it was edited down from.

I wasn't sad; it was my first concert! However in retrospect I'd have been even less sad if it had been another number from Signals instead. Analog Kid would've slayed.

But also... that second set... it really just drove away any nitpicking I had. Once I realized they were going backwards (probably about they started One Little Victory), and then once they stopped for an intermission at Signals...that's when I knew the second set was going to be something special. Every one of my top 5 Rush songs was played, plus other massive surprises (Hems Prelude, Jacob's Ladder, Lakeside Park!?) Man I'd pay a lot of money to relive that night.
