Title track is epic, of course. Hard not to choose it for the Overture alone, but for me, "Something for Nothing" is intense, and for me the perfect epitome of early Rush. I also love the message (see my sig).

'Something For Nothing'. The most conservative song that Neil has ever written. Not saying that that was his intent, but that's what I get from it.

Ok, I went with Bangkok. Not just because I am a stoner either. This was a tough choice for me because I really like the production on Twilight Zone. 2112 is awesome, but I have heard it so many times that it has lost some luster for me personally. But I really identified with the theme of individuality in my teeenage years. This was probably my second Rush album purchase.

I had a tough choice between Twilightzone and A Passage, I went with Passage though becuse a lil bit on the wild side and I love the way it sounds.

Usually I'd say 2112, but right now it's Something for Nothing - It's almost an affirmation that the tyranny of the title track can be overthrown

What you love is your own power
What you live is your own story"

2112 for me.  I was a causal fan until I heard this tune & realized that it was a story...and the rest, as they say, is history...


Lessons comes a very close second for me:

I'll be there
When I teach what I've been taught

You'll be there
When you know what I know

I like lessons because I have learned many lessons and I will take my knowledge and use it to better America.
