Aww, I'm so alone in this one! But I like Madrigal a lot. Blame the recent introduction to Rush. Practically anything with me can be explained with a "NEWBIE!" stamp.  blush4.gif

"Xanadu."  Like "Natural Science," it's got everything that makes Rush Rush, IMO.

It was a toss-up between Xanadu and Cygnus X-1, but Cygnus won!

Xanadu. (Hence, my username)

This is my ALL TIME favorite song. It just sounds like true Rush. Everyone puts some extra effort just to make it special: Neil and his extra percussion instruments, Geddy with his electronic stuff (he also plays rhythm guitar near the solo, i think) and Alex with his singing guitar.

Other good ones off this one are AFTK, CTTH, and Cygnus.

This is probably one of my alltime favorite albums.
