I must have voted for Dreamline at one point, but today I would change it to Ghost Of A  Chance.  I will let it stay at Dreamline though for personal reasons.  It was the last Rush song I loved before I took my twenty year hiatus from listening to music.

1. Dreamline
2. Where's My Thing?
3. Roll The Bones

And the rest is sort of... there, I guess. Never really cared for this album.

Ghost Of A Chance gets my vote, it really got more points from me, after I heard the live version on Snakes & Arrows Tour.

Where's My Thing? is my favorite. But I really love Dreamline when it's live.

Dreamline is the one "classic" on here IMO, though Roll The Bones is another good song; Where's My Thing is also good, but its true potential was only reached on the CA tour in my opinion.

The rest ranges from "give or take" (Bravado, GOAC) to "next button" (Face Up, Neurotica).

Is it just me or is the main riff of Neurotica awesome?

It is. As is the solo. But everything else sucks.

My vote went to Dreamline, with a very honorable mention to GOAC and RTB (I dig the rap too, lol). I really like this whole album for the most part though.

Dreamline and the title track are the two songs on here that I have actually wanted to listen to in the last 2 months. And out of those, Dreamline wins by far.

Took me a while to decide, but after three separate listens, as much as I love the live version of "Where's My Thing," the studio version just doen't quite cut it. "Bravado" is nice, but Ged's voice gets a little scratchy in parts. "Roll The Bones" is another standout, and I think the rap is actually cheesily fun(ny), but nothing really lives up to "Dreamline." Best song by far. The second half of the record varies between pretty good/great to mostly forgettable.
