So tomorrow is the twenty-fourth of May.....  What are you doing ?

The start of Memorial Day weekend !!! Raining weather forecast for NJ so.... :hail:

Everyone would gather
On the twenty-fourth of May
Sitting in the sand
To watch the fireworks display.
Dancing fires on the beach,
Singing songs together...
Though it's just a memory,
Some memories last forever.

Probably Bastille Day or Fountain.

Have to say, I don't think their is a huge difference between this album and 2112. Both are awesome albums! Maybe I prefer 2112 though. This is to 2112 what AFTK is to Hem.

"The Fountain Of Lamneth", specifically the section "Bacchus Plateau", although personally "Bastille Day" is a close contender.

The Necromancer. It's basically an awesome Fantasy Novel in a 12 minute song, what's not to love?

Minnesota??? I thought The VinMan was from New Castle... :huh:

I've always loved Bacchus Plateau myself as well. Especially the guitar solo, but the entire song is truly a work of art.

Caress Of Steel taught me never to judge an album until you've listened to it. I don't understand what the people who say this is one of Rush's worst albums are listening to because this is one of their best in my opinion. The Fountain of Lamneth is my favorite.

I'm not particularly keen on any of them but I'll go for The Necromancer, best of a bad bunch.

Bastille Day, but strong competition from FOL. Necromancer Parts 1 and 2 are great too...
I actually prefer this album to 2112.

:bitchslap: What was I on about?! Anyway, my vote still goes to The Necromancer, but not because it's the best of a bad bunch, but because it's really good.
