Really surprised this thread doesn't exist yet.

What do you think is the best song from this album?


For me, probably Headlong Flight, but Clockwork Angels and Seven Cities of Gold are close seconds.

I love every song on this album, so picking out a definitive highlight actually seems impossible. So I went for Wish Them Well because I think it is underrated and the chorus stands out as one of my favourites. I bought this album the day of the fan pack release half expecting to be disappointed (remember, I am a new fan...I expected a band this old to be jamming out moth balls). Before it had even finished I knew it was my album of the year! (And by December it still was, despite releases by bands I love more like Lacuna Coil and Khoma, who both released classic albums).

How do I feel about it today? Its grown a little old, but only because so much of their early work has grown on me more and more! Still, it Clockwork Angels had been released the year after Hemispheres,  I don't think anybody would have been that surprised.

So glad to see this finally has a thread of its own!

I will be majorly in the minority on this one but I chose Halo Effect. In my humble opinion there are 5 songs on this album that hold up to all of the Rush music I love. These are songs for me that will stand the test of time...........
Caravan
The Anarchist
Headlong Flight
Halo Effect
The Garden
The rest to me are just alright and listenable, but nothing special....... :codger:

Surprised to see you not mention the title track in that list Narpet!

I think my top five is:

Caravan
Clockwork Angels
Seven Cities Of Gold
The Garden
Wish Them Well

Only track I don't rate highly is BU2B2 (but only coz it doesn't stand alone. As part of the album its amazing!)

But I think its their most consistent album since Grace Under Pressure (bear in mind I have yet to hear everything post- PoW prior to Snakes and Arrows).

Title track, with Headlong Flight, The Garden, and Caravan all very close behind.  Even 2.5 years later, it's still my third favorite album, ever.

So many great songs here in Rush's Renaissance album it's hard to pick just one but I have to go with The Anarchist, slightly edging out Headlong Flight.

Both songs and many others are good enough to be placed in the middle of the Golden Age and not look out of place.

Ladies and gentlemen, the original Clockwork Angels poll has finally been placed with the rest of the album polls in full glory. Let's celebrate with more posts about our favorite songs from this great album. And, just for the occasion (and a long time thinking) I'm changing my vote from Headlong Flight to Clockwork Angels. Hooray!

Most of the songs suck on this album but there are a few highlights, like a Headlong Flight, Caravan and Halo Effect.  It's just a shame that the album suffers from the Vapor Trails syndrome.
