I like so many songs on Test For Echo, but I am going to have to go with Resist.  I like it with drums, and for Rush In Rio they made it into a sweet acoustic guitar solo.   GeddyFinal.gif  AlexFinal.gif

Push come to shove, I go with T4E. Tough choice, though with Resist and Driven fighting for dominance in my heart and mind.

Oh man, T4E is my favorite Rush album ever. Not to mention the very first album i heard. My dad played Driven for me when it came out back in 96(?) and i remember not likeing it very much. Man, how wrong was I! Rush is the best band ever! As for my vote, you can't go wrong with the title track.

"Driven" gets my vote.  I always thought this was an awesome track...so...well, DRIVING.  laugh.gif

Although I really like "Totem" as well.  I just love how the lyrics fit together.

Limbo! I'm not such a fan of T4E and the other songs don't really do it for me (except maybe T4E and Driven, which are equally awesome) but I really like Limbo.

"Driven." Sounds like Rush mixed with Tool and Iron Maiden. This song bludgeons you when you listen to it.
