Time for an authoritarian crackdown on the Anarchist.  That will leave us with a battle of the mini-epics.

I know it feels predictable going with the big "single" from the album, but "Headlong Flight" is a great song, lyrically, musically, and all the other -llys you can think of!

And so are The Anarchist and Clockwork Angels. Just can't win. It's just how I feel at the moment, I'd never to be able to confidently choose a favorite or best song from this album

I'm making a correction.  From Rush's last studio c.d., and album "Clockwork Angels", the song "Clockwork Angels" wasn't released as a hit.  The songs "Caravan", and "BU2B" were released, and as hit singles before Rush embarked on their "Time Machine Tour", and before "Clockwork Angels" c.d., and album was released, too.  I was maybe, going to say, too, that in "the Garden", Rush's last studio released song of theirs, doesn't get anything else from some other people because they chose to go against it.  As I said before, on, and for some songs, it's been how some people have decided to do this.  Whether it was for strategy, and positive, and negative reasons.

Yeah, you're right -- I knew saying "it's an awesome track" is not exactly well-reasoned persuasion, but I just wanted to offer a word in its favor. Onward and upward.
