Here's mine, with the requisite caveat that I love every one of these songs, so last place is no slight.

Also, I actually wouldn't mind seeing the entirety of Clockwork as one epic piece since there's a theme. I realize that structurally it doesn't necessarily count. I'm not sure Clockwork Angels the song counts as epic unto itself, but if we count the song I'll make it the new number nine shifting all the ones below down a spot. The album as a whole would be placed about 4th, but it's grounds for consideration are fairly weak.

A Drummers perspective-Beware i got the 2112 badge tonight so you have to take me seriously..LOL
My Rankings and general comments;

1-La Villa:  The Pinnacle. There are no other words-Put this against any other instrumental in any class - 10/10. always #1
2-Hemispheres: " how did you even come up with that?" You will never hear this level if musicianship again..-This album knocked the hell out of them-real work !!  wow
Natural Science " Imagine the frigginn energy a drummer would get from this pulling it off"??? (Tide pools of Lac Perry-straight energy of the studio atmosphere )
Xanadu: " sorry I'm lost in a rain forest but because of this music I will stay here forever-call off  the rescue team"-epic musical imagination-damn those double necks
The Camera Eye  "truly underated- straight out of Morin heights "
Jacobs Ladder: what do you think of when you see a sun beam out of a dark and cloudy sky to the heavens?
Cygnus X1: The darkness.... do ..do do do ent..do do d,d dount  do- oh man
2112: the best concert moment for me.. (imagine Max Webster opening for Rush on a mid 70's New Year's Eve???
Headlong Flight: the new Alex-My daughters favorovite Rush song-thats just cool . shes 21 and blown away by headlong flight. ya Dad was right about this guy...
By-Tor & the Snowdog: so cool-the first epic-slightly before my time but I love it
The Necromancer : OK I get it - love it but I agree with Taylor Hawkins-it's not !First choice to play for Lamneth your wife who knows Rush but lost here.
Fountain of Lamneth :    I would have put YYZ here
