Xanadu, with AFTK coming in second. This is their second best album after Hemispheres!  smile.gif

I concur, and mostly for sentimental reason...
I just love the words to aftk., Xanadu is one of the most magical Rush songs ever, and maybe is the best on this LP. But I voted for cygnus x-1...It had me the most excited then when it came out, and ...well , now too.!!..."All who dare to cross her course!!!!!."....Who can tell me  a better "Geddy whaling" than that!!??

I love A Farewll To Kings. Definitely one of the best sounding productions on a Rush album (and that is saying a lot). Anyway, my favorite here would be Xanadu. An epic classic!

Cinderella Man a rocking song with a message of helping your fellow "man"

In the betrayal of his love he awakened
To face a world of cold reality
And a look in the eyes of the hungry
Awakened him to what he could do

Xanadu. It will be in my top 10 forever.

But I love all other songs too, especially Closer to the Heart. I didn't like this song very much until mid 90th, but now ... I was a bit disappointed that it hasn't been played on the 30th Anniversary Tour. The first and perhaps last time I've seen Rush live (I'm German) and no CttH  fists crying.gif
