I guess I have to say Cygnus X-1. I love the chords, all the arpeggios, the solos, the Taurus, the epic lyrics, and the length (all the best songs are 20 minutes!).

This for me as well.
This suite worked so well for me in so many ways. I loved to listen to it on headphones with my eyes shut and picture everything (though you should have seen me jump the first time at ..........."THEN ALL AT ONCE THE CHAOS CEASED."). It also worked great to crank up over the speakers and in the car...where ever, when ever!
The imagery of the lyrics and the sheer gymnastics they were pulling off on their instruments while still being so MELODIC was astounding on Cygnus X-1, Bk 2. I've still never heard better bass bits that this piece, and my favorite Peart fill of all time happens at the climax of part V (Cygnus) at 16:26. Just......damn*.
* (nod to Honorable Mention of the drumming on the latter part of "Jacob's Ladder" which also amazes me).
