"Headlong Flight" is such a perfect summation big finish for the band's career. It's driving, it's propulsive, it's heavy, it sounded great live; a real late-career triumph.

I agree with the points about Headlong Flight in that it provides a perfect bookend to a career, right down to the Caress of Steel call back.

But as individual songs I still think the Anarchist is simply the better song.

But you make a great case for HF

Love both songs and happy to see either win.  I prefer The Anarchist so I voted for Headlong Flight.  Probably the first time I have had to somewhat 'cringe' voting a song off since the Moving Pictures elimination thread.

I still remember how exciting it was hearing Headlong Flight for the first time when they released it online.
Now that was the Rush that I'd been missing on the last haf-dozen or so albums :haz:

That list has me wondering how I would rank them all, most to least favorite.
