Personal favorite is Entre Nous. First song I grabbed that hit me when the album first came out.

Most played has got to be SOR....

Different Strings.

The guitar for the last 30 seconds is one of my favorite pieces they have recorded.  I would love to hear the rest of that recording.

'Jacob's Ladder'. But only because it has grown on me during the last year. I used to skip it.

Tie for Jacob's Ladder and Natural Science. Both are incredible works of art, lyrically and musically. This album is a pinnacle of Rush for me.

Freewill also meant a lot to me growing up. Being spirituly inclined in my formative years, this song propelled me into questioning everything put before me and not taking stock answers from anyone, especially clergy. There is more to life than we can measure or perceive and this song pointed the way for me to begin my own spiritual exploration.

This is like being asked to pick your favourite child -

Natural Science ('cause it's potty trained)
