I was glad when they brough "The Pass" out for the VP tour! ..To me it is an atypical Rush tune!...Like it could have been an Elton JOhn tune  rofl3.gif

I love this record to pieces! The most underrated record in the catalogue as far as I'm concerned. So many gems here, but I had to pick Available Light in the end...such a moving song! Though I have really been on a Chain Lightning kick lately. The bass work in particular on that song is pure ear-candy.  653.gif

I've got to disagree with Cygnus about Red Tide.  I think its an awesome song and has long been one of my favourite Rush tracks period.  I love the change of mood and tempo and think it features some of Neil's most provocative lyrics.

Not only is "Available Light" my favourite of "Presto", it is my alltime favourite Rush song.

I went with War Paint. The ending has so much energy. It was a hard choice though. Presto is such a great album.  new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Believe it or not, "Presto" is my favourite RUSH LP!  The title cut just has a great acoustic intro with very positive lyrics. gg.gif

The Pass, hands down. One of my all-time faves from one of my top 5 favorite albums. Presto is just one of those "period" albums for me when everything in life seemed so good. Available Light also holds a dear place in my heart.
