I am leaning towards Armor and Sword, but also like Spindrift and The Way the Wind Blows a good bit two... most of the songs on the album really speak to me, so it's hard to picka "best"

The Main Monkey Business...this one will sound soooo gooooood live!!! YEAH!!!  1022.gif

I'm also really diggin' Armor and Sword, The Larger Bowl, and The Way the Wind Blows. I hope they play these ones. I wouldn't even be sad if they didn't play Far Cry (but they will).....it's lost a little of its initial excitement for me.

This album is really growing on me. As a whole the album is amazing. Competely different than any other Rush album. The whole spiritual feel to the album is magnificant. I really appreciate Neil Peart for going all out in lyrics even if it may turn out to be the most controversial Rush album. I think when muscians take risks like that it just shows how they will stand the test of time. And this risk worked well even if you don't believe in NP's beliefs.

Right now "Larger Bowl" is my favorite. But "Armor and Sword" is the best on the album and probably my favorite all together. "Spindrift", "The way the wind blows", and "Main Monkey Business" are also honorable mentions in the album. I would really enjoy hearing these songs in concert. I honestly hope they don't do more than 4 or 5 songs from S&A.

im surprised Armor and Sword is winning all these polls. It definitely took a few listens before i grew to love it. I'm still going with Workin Them Angels. I still get chills during the chorus.  1022.gif
