...but I'm not changing my vote, too much love for Xanadu already
There is no such thing as too much love for one of the greatest songs ever written by any band anywhere at any time.
So why is it that you give Closer To The Heart NO LOVE AT ALL??
It doesn't even belong on the album because it doesn't fit in with the other songs.
Back in the seventies when AFTK came out, the only song ever played on the radio was CTTH. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't really like it either. It was just a song and there was nothing unique or impressive about it. It is on account of that song that I never bought the album and didn't think much of Rush.
Seems to fit really well into the album for me. Acoustic folky intro, simple synth lines, high-fantasy lyrical references, odd percussion, high pitched Geddy. Heck, it fits more than Madrigal. But I love that song, it basically introduced me to Rush, so I may be biased.
