natural science isn't their most popular song, which is ok, cuz its kinda like a hidden gem... i always ignored this song till i was bored one day and listened to the whole thing and i was blown away!! Its not repetitive, and you can't really predict it, you know? thats why i love it! thats why i love rush! haha :haz:

Had to give my vote to Spirit of Radio but Entre Nous would easily be the winner if there was no spirit of radio

Jacob's Ladder for its moody atmosphere. Must add that Geddys vocals on Different Strings found a crack in my heart.

Ask me tomorrow and I'll in all probability give you a different answer. Heard the whole record for the first time today, and had to put on my headphones to crank the stereo (late night listenings), and it is as usual awesome!

Spirit of Radio...because it captures, well, the spirit of radio.  In other words the song accomplishes what it claims to set out to do.

For lyrics, Freewill. Overall though, I choose Natural Science. Just an unbelievable song. Anyone see this live?

I really love "Natural science," especially the parts where Geddy's voice sounds "modified"

I love "Entre Nous" as a song, but voted "Jacob's Ladder" as it's just spectacular RUSH.  Neil's drumming on this song is a clinic in syncopation and WTF? moments :)
