Tough call cause the Pass is one of my favorite Rush songs but I would have loved to hear Available light this tour.. or had them keep the Pass and lose Bravado

I do love "The Pass", but "Available Light" ends the LP on such an emotional high, I voted for it.

Voting for Hand over Fist.
Remember Geddy singing "Lay hand over Hannover" on their Show 1992 in Hannover. Itīs not on that boot I have, but know I sing that line.

Had to go with the title track. So many cool elements to this song. This album put my rocky faith back in Rush. I really like Show Don't Tell, Chain Lightning, War Paint (especially the bit about the Charger in the garage), The Pass, Hand Over Fist, and Scars. Sorry, but Available Light, Anagram, and Red Tide are Crap! I am indifferent to Superconductor- much better live.

I went with Scars. I had to wait to vote though because I cfouldnt decide between this and Available Light. IN THE END it came down to the lyrics again.

Lyrics wise, War Paint, hitting out both at the tyranny of the beauty industry and our complicity with it by slavishly trying to live up to its ideals.

Then again, it might just be about trying to get laid biggrin.gif

I like War Paint because it reminds me of my service to my country in quest for your freedoms.

The Pass is such a beautiful song.

I know I run the risk of the wrath of the Rush brethren (and sisteren, is that a word?  biggrin.gif ) but I actually like War Paint and Superconductor too!
