This one was a real tough one for me. This was really the album I was listening to when I my learning exploded. This album was one of the albums that defined my playing. Afterimage was the one song that made me think. It was the one where I felt Rush/Pratt bearing their souls in a song. The video seemed to show that.....

Afterimage. The video of this song shows intensity on Chronicles from Alex, Geddy and especially Neil.

rush has always been knocked for not being very emotional, well if this isnt emotional I'm not sure what is. Great lyrics about a great LOSS.

VERY tough vote. I went with The Enemy Within because I get so excited whenever I hear it.  I'm sure my favorite will change.

Afterimage for sure.  One of the few times I prefer a song for the lyrics over the music.

"The Body Electric" is my favorite among the songs I've heard (it, "Distant Early Warning," and "Red Sector A").  The pounding drums and "1-0-0-1-0-0-1" chorus just kill me (in a good way).

And it's about an android, so that's cool  icon_alienjig.gif

I went with Red Sector A - one of the most unnerving songs I've ever heard. You hear it and realize that "making your blood run cold" isn't just a figure of speech....
