Although Dreamline is out of control awesome.... I had to go with Bravado.  Everything in life just stops for 4 minutes and 35 seconds whenever that song is played.  There is so much emotion and power in the music and lyrics (like in so many of their songs).

The live version, for me, is an ultimate highlight of their show.  I'm so glad the boys have decided to keep it in the setlist since '92.  It actually overtook Closer To The Heart as their "extended ending" song.   biggrin.gif

Aaaaahhhhhhhhh, Roll the Bones - another of my favourite Rush albums.  You really can say that every song on this one is a killer and the production is awesome.  As for my favourite track, I see I'm the first to go for Neurotica.

Why?  I just love the lyrics.

I go with Dreamline on this one. IMHO, it's probably the best track to open a concert with and just the perfect opening to this album.
