  2.gif the timing, the dynamics, the precision playing, this song sums up what Rush are all about. It's got to be Circumstances!

La Villa Strangiato because it is the best practice in self indulgence I've ever heard.

Here's my order.

Back when I first listened to the album:

1. La Villa
2. The Trees
3. Hemispheres
4. Circumstances

Now:

1. Hemispheres
2. The Trees
3. Circumstances
4. La Villa

After listening to la villa billions of times, i've come to realize it's not as killer of a song as the others. Not saying it's a bad song, but the others definately show more talent IMO.

Greatest guitar passage ever. One of the best live songs from ANY band I've seen. La Villa Strangiato is one of my favourite Rush songs.
