This is probably the toughest album to choose from, all really solid efforts.

That being said I think I'm going to go with Cold Fire.

For me personally, I think Counterparts is their best post Power Windows effort, and as a whole it's a pretty strong album. That said, my favorite song from Counterparts is definitely Animate. I love the drive of the song, even though it might be simple compared to other songs, Geddy's flamenco style bass line in this song is one of my all time favorite bass lines. Cold Fire and Between The Sun and Moon are my other two favorites.

Cold Fire! Deep lyrics, amazing beginning, so much emotion in that song. Lots of great choices on this album however.

This album is my favorite from this era, so it's not easy for me to choose.  It was a tough decision between Animate and Cut to the Chase, but I had to go with Cut to the Chase because of the guitar solo (I mean, who in the hell wouldn't love it) and the adrenaline rushing rhythm.  Also, the lyrical meaning, about self determination and how to keep pushing yourself forward, gets me going throughout the day.  It's almost like Marathon in a way.  I love every song from this album, but I have to go with Cut to the Chase for my favorite.

I will refrain from voting for now...

But Animate is the type of song I never in my life imagined Rush could do. I don't know what it is exactly, but this is not the Rush I thought I knew, and along with Nobody's Hero and the simply perfect Double Agent, Animate is a strong reminder of why I fell in love with Rush in the first place: they are unpredictable. Who thought, after Roll The Bones, they could release an album of songs like this?

So Animate for now...once my opinion for this splendid album becomes more solid, I will vote absolutely!

Still can't decide between Animate, Double Agent and Speed Of Love. This is a great album, although for entertainment value the circus-pop/rock of Roll The Bones still takes the lead when it comes to the nineties releases.

I'm not going to vote just yet, but Speed Of Love is one of those tunes that I never expected from a band like Rush, and yet I can't help but love it!

Very well said! I also believe the lyrics speak to the choice between being a caring and productive human vs. being selfish and uncaring. Cut to the Chase is also my choice, but it isn't even close for me. What great and inspirational song!

Tough decision since I like most of the tracks off this album, but I'll go for Stick It Out. Though come tomorrow I will have probably changed my mind! :D
