Love every song from this CD except Dog Year, but have to pick Test For Echo because of the amazing chorus where Neil plays 16th note double bass beats plus tom fills, Geddy runs through his bass line in 8th notes and Alex cruises along in quarter notes, wow, that's intergration.

Resist.  I can relate to the great words, and I luv the accoustic version that Geddy and Alex do.  Love to see it at concerts.

Driven is good. But the way "Resist" rises and falls - I just  heart.gif  it.

That's a song I would consider if I was on a desserted island and only
got to pick one song to listen to.

I like "Dog Years" too.

Definitely T4E, and the version on Different Stages is by far the best.....Alex's grace notes throughout the song are better than on the studio album and the audiences screams are perfectlyt placed to bring chills up and down my spine...

"Time and Motion" - although lately "Totem" has been popular in the shower. But yeah, "Time and Motion" is definitely the highlight of this album for me. It's heavy and it's got that cool hypnotic synthesizer loop riff. This should have been the CD's first song, then "Totem," and so on.

The sound on this album is some of their best, Hey guys I hope you work with Andy Wallace again

I liked T4E, but decided it was their  corporate formulaic radio song..
I like driven.

But, time and motion, is what its about.
