The first song I ever heard from the album (thank you former freedomofmusic site), though through live format, Between the Wheels is definatly my favorite.  Lots of good choices here as well, DEW and TEW are a lot of fun to play with bass guitar.

Tough choice. BTW is an awesome song, "Red Sector A" once of their most haunting, but I went with "Afterimage". The evocation of a lost loved one is so powerful.

"I feel the way you would."

Red sector A.
I hear the gun fire at the prison gate..

It´s gave me shiver´s since I found out that Geddy´s mom was in Bergen Belsen, what is only 25 miles away from where I live.
Makes me feel guilty and ashaned for what´s happening here 60 years ago, hoping that such thing will never happen again.

The obvious choice here is BTW because of the recent shows, but I am going with Afterimage, despite no real bass. I always loved the lyrical content and the guitar solo section.

Having listened (and trying to play along) with this album again it has lost some of the vigor I used to hold it in. It takes on a different air 20 years later.

It was a close tie for me, BTW and The Enemy Within are both great. IN THE END I went with Enemy Within, I love the lyrics and the beat.

Enemy Within, because it kicks off "Fear", and neither of the other two got my vote.

I wonder if BTW would have been as popular as it is showing to be now if they hadn't have played it.  Oh well, its definatly one of their most underrated songs that deserved its representation.

Between The Wheels is my pick because I like the lyrics

We can go from boom to bust
From dreams to a bowl of dust
We can fall from rockets' red glare
Down to "Brother can you spare-"
Another war-another waste land-
And another lost generation...

The lyrics hit close to home don't they?

I love the combination of acoustic and electronic drums in Red Lenses.

Aaaaah, my favourite Rush record this, closely tied with Permanent Waves.

I truly love every single song here (yes, even Red Lenses), but Afterimage I simply adore. That stunning, emotionally charged geetar!!  musik19.gif  

Between The Wheels will be an absolute thrill to witness on the upcoming Euro tour! I can see tears welling up in my eyes during this song for sure...
