Anagram is pretty cool.  The lyrics are almost ingenious.  The drums are sweet.  

Red Tide, available light and scars are my other favorites on this album.

The bass is too pangy on the pass.  I listen to the live in rio version.

The Pass sounds better on Rush In Rio so I went with Scars but Presto is a close second.

How can I choose?  Superconductor.  Love the message and agree 200%.  I also love that triple key change at the end.  Pure energy.  Second Fav album next to 2112.

This maybe the least liked of all Rush songs by fans but I love Hand Over Fist. It has that nice edge to the lyrics.

This album is getting some flak in the "worst Rush album" thread. I love it.

My fav as stated earlier is Hand Over Fist but some days The Pass is too.

I think it's a great Album full of quality songs.

THE PASS! Is there any other answer?? That song is FULL of beautiful lyrics . . . but Superconductor comes in second.
