I love Animate, I'd say it's my favorite Rush song from the 1990's.

It is a choice between Animate, Alien Shore and The Speed of Love.  I will go with the latter.

Went for Speed Of Love, although I no longer find any song to be weak on this album, with SOL the most underrated (it's fantastic!).

At first i voted CTTC but realized WMT is clearly he best teack. Though On a rainy day I could have voted for BTSAM as well. Comparatively weak chorus.

I also have a soft spot for Cold Fire. Kinda chilling considering...

I didn't think I would pick an instrumental but I did.  I am always coming back to Leave That Thing Alone.  I love the Bass in it.

Okay, this album weirded me out a bit at first because it seemed more and more like Neil wrote all the lyrics about sex, but getting past probably my least favorite of Neil's lyrics in a few of the songs, the music started being pretty awesome. If one kind of blocks out the most off-putting of the lyrics it's a very consistently good album, with the middle few songs only coming off a bit less awesome than the first four and final few. A definite improvement over Roll The Bones, and the first great guitar based Rush album since PeW/MP. It's tough to pick a favorite though. I think it's got to be between the first four, but each has so much going for it...I guess I should pick the one which stood out to me the most on first listen, so my vote goes to "Nobody's Hero." Very beautiful, a sign of distant future things to come with the likes "Halo Effect," "The Wreckers," and "The Garden" methinks.
