This is the hardest album to pick a favorite I think.
I picked The Larger Bowl because I like to write poetry and Neil's use of the pantoum is awesome.

But Far Cry, Malignant Narcissism, and Main Monkey Business were not far behind.

I voted Main Monkey Business, but it was soooooooooooooo tough to not vote for Malignant Narcissism. I also love Workin' Them Angels and Far Cry.

Armor and Sword.  No one gets to their heaven without a fight.  I love Geddy's bass and Neil's drumming.  Alex sounds awesome.  Lyrically strong.  Rush, back at full power.

And that's my opinion of my favourite song on all of Rush's albums.  Gauntlet complete.

Malignant Narcissism... While short it actually is pretty heavy, go into a drum solo and I'm sold!

"Armor and Sword".....it has grace and grandeur.

'No one gets to their Heaven without a fight' is an AMAZING lyric.
