It was tough to choose between Cold Fire and Double Agent, but the former won out due to sentimental reasons.

Cut to the Chase
I'm old enough not to care too much
About what you think of me
But I'm young enough to remember the future
And the way things ought to be

QUOTE (paganoman @ Oct 14 2004, 01:49 PM)
Cut To The Chase...  This is a tough one, because every song is a heavy hitter.  But CTTC is truly my favorite.  In my opinion, this is the best sounding CD they recorded since Moving Pictures.  So much bottom end, and drag you through the dirt licks.  I'm tired when I'm finished listening to this album.  It sets out from the beginning to just kick your ass... no question about it.

Alas, I've already answered.  However, it's nice to read something posted a while ago to see that it still holds true.  Adding on, however with notables.

Animate which is one of Rush's strongest recorded songs to date (live version from different stages makes me feel like bursting out of my skin), CTTH (best damn song on the CD), Nobody's Hero, Between Sun And Moon (first song from the CD I rehearsed on drums), The Speed Of Love (Has a feel to it that can't be described in words - such a great song), Double Agent (HUGE), LTTA (Favorite Rush Instrumental), Cold Fire (Another underrated Classic - one of their all time best).

As great as all the songs are on this album, I had to pick Double Agent just because of the monologues. Geddy doesn't get much scarier than that (in a good way!)
