It really shouldn't be this close. La Villa is one of the best ever.

  • Interests:Let's see, I like playing guitar and bass, mostly Rush of course, but I like doing my own thing too. I like astronomy/cosmology, and like science fiction like Star Trek and the Alien series. I like the original CSI and I also love the Mythbusters (Kari, will you marry me?). Reading is good for my brain too.

I voted for YYZ.  It's pretty damn amazing, not to take away from "La Villa" or anything.  It's just more to the point, and the bass work is killer.   Well, it's all killer on that song.  However, lately I've become quite partial to "Leave that Thing Alone."  I love the sound of that song, especially that eerie part with the odd meter and the church organ.  Kinda reminds me of an old Castlevania game or something.  laugh.gif

Wow, a consensus here?

Never would have figured that.  

The Villa has so much depth and atmosphere, not to mention the different parts.  That song gives them all room to showcase their abilities.  

And, just to add my two cents; I personally don't consider introductions (or overtures) to longer songs "instrumentals".  While they might not have lyrics, they don't stand alone very well.

Where's My Thing. It's very groovy, that riff is so simple....but that's what Rush does the best. Great music out of simple ideas

YYZ is AMAZING so is the beginning of 2112...but neither one can compare to La Villa in my opinion. Its a 10 min song of pure instruments and they make it work so perfectly! The song actually inspires you, damn its good!

La Villa

Although I Love YYZ, La Villa Strangiato flows very smoothly. It puts you through a whirlwind of emotion. Everyone puts so much into it. Drums, Bass and Guitar come together to create a classic.
