By far, the closest list to mine.

I stuck with songs that were 7 minutes or longer that were distinctly prog.  AFTK, while being a brilliant song, is under 6 - doesn't quite fit for me with that particular definition of epic, but it is an epic song in terms of greatness.

The AFTK was in reference to my favorite 12 songs.  11 of them were the epics you listed and AFTK is the only "non-epic" in my top 12.

Now I think I will listen to another epic tune:  I'm in the mood for a '71 or '72 Dark Star.

But this can change on a daily basis....   I'd have to put these all as #1's for the most part.

Sorry Im late! I've had to have a bit of a think about this!

La Villa Strangiato
Cygnus X1
Hemispheres
Xanadu
Fountain Of Lamneth
2112
Natural Science
The Camera Eye
Jacob's Ladder
By-Tor And The Snowdog
The Necromancer

I've tried to be as honest as I can, sometime the bottom seven shuffle around. It's made this harder than I thought.

1. La Villa Strangiato--best instrumental ever, by anyone. Ever.

2. 2112--I need no explanation for greatness.

3. Hemispheres--Rivals 2112.

4. Natural Science--Brings PeW to a whole other level.

5. Bytor & The Snow Dog--Barely an epic, but a killer song.

6. Xanadu--one of the most atmospheric Rush songs ever. Incredible.

7. Jacob's Ladder--See comments 4 & 5.

8. Cygnus X-1--I love how this song brings so much crushing heaviness to the ending of a somewhat less heavy album.

9. The Camera Eye--Not even one of the better songs on MP--which says how great that album is! A classic nonetheless.

10. The Necromancer--The narration is goddawful and it has some structural problems. I love Under The Shadow, but over-rated by you COS Zealots who are all caught up in the imagery of the album cover.

11. The Fountain--No One At The Bridge & Bacchus Plateau are great, the rest of the song(s), not so much. In The Valley and The Fountain just don't have great riffs like Overture & Grand Finale from 2112, this epic lacks cohesion or spunk. Once again, over-rated. yes.gif

The top 5 were just as hard to put in order as the last 6. All great stuff here. But my 1 & 2 here are probably my top 2 Rush tunes of all time anyway.  2.gif

One thing that baffles me is when people don't have Xanadu and La Villa at #1 and #2, or at least close to the top. 

Don't get me wrong, I love most of the other epics on the list, but those two songs are sheer perfection. 

I'm with you on this one.

also in agreement
