"Fountain of Lamneth."  Especially "No One at the Bridge" (featuring Alex's most emotive guitar solo) and "Bacchus Plateau."

This was actually a real toughie for me, you got a whole buncha' good tracks here: Lamneth, Bastille Day, Lakeside Park, Necromancer (maybe if i dont mention "I Think Im Going Bald" It'l disappear from the album, dont get me wrong, its a good song, just not one of my faves)

So, anyway I voted Bastille Day. Its a classic (especially the ATWAS version) and probably in my top 10.

I really dont get why COS didnt do so well, i woulda' bought it if i was alive.

Definitely not an album I listen a lot to, so I had to consult my old record player first (apart from the first album and ASOH, this is their only album I never bought on CD).
Bastille Day makes it as the obvious choice, but only because No One At The Bridge wasn't listed separately (sorry to say that the rest of Fountain is IMHO just kinda, well, nerdy)

As others have mentioned, The FOL hasa individual pieces which are better than others as songs in their own right, but Lakeside Park gets my vote in this poll

You know? I've yet to D/L any music from Rush: legally or illegally. I just buy the album er C.D. and enjoy it. If my C.D. wears out, I buy a new one

I got Caress of Steel about three weeks ago.

I like all songs, I think I'm going bald is extremely underrated.

Still, Lakeside Park is my favorite on this album. Great album!

I'm going with Lakeside Park on this one.  I loved the way Neil described his "growing up" memories.
