I love Freewill.
The solo is by far the best I have ever heard from any band.
When I went to the 30 yr concert last year, his hands almost caught fire firedevil.gif

But...I still chose The Spirit of the Rado,
It is just a classic..
(its the official Rush website BGM for crying out loud!)

This has got to be the toughest 'best song' poll for me cos it's the album that changed my musical awareness. A 13 years old kid growing up in the glam rock/disco/early punk era and then my friend plays me P/W. One of those moments that stays with me.
I had to vote for N/S purely for it's wow factor, but in truth i love them all. It's for me the complete Rush album. It flows from start to finish. It's up-beat, technical, sad, piledriving, thought provoking. One listen and I was blown away. I love what came before and all that has come since, but P/W still remains my #1.
