Book II for sure. An absolute masterpiece.

That being said, the whole album is a masterpiece. The solo in La Villa is my favorite solo of all time... by anyone!

I couldn't agree more. I always have to listen to Cygnus X-1 first, then Book II. It just doesn't feel right listening to one part alone.

La Villa Strangiato for me. It is my 2nd favorite song ever, only behind The Necromancer.

It's between LVS and Tree Song with me. I think I will go slightly with Tree Song because I like how it goes through the song making you turn the song on it's head in the last line of the song. It hypes up that the Oaks are the bad guy throughout the song for the most part and at the end it's everyone that suffers.

I love this whole album but Hemispheres is definitely my favorite. It is just as good as 2112 in my opinion.

Hemispheres. It's hard to choose because I kind of consider the whole album one big long song.

Hemispheres.  

Maybe the seventies should be relabeled the Epic Rush Masterpiece Decade.

I agree with you there EagleMoon I've always thought of it as one big song too.

Circumstances.  That song means so much to me both as a fully grown man with kids and as that  boy in his room alone. Strangely I am becoming that boy again since my marriage break up!  My life is coming full circle but that song always remains.  Plus ca change Plus cest le meme chose !.
