Vapor Trail.  Some love the VT album, some hate the VT album.  I love it.  Raw.  Just like the band.  I never thought I'd hear new material from Rush again after 1997.  VT was a gift.  This song, in my opinion, provided the deepest insight into what they had all been through in the preceding years.  Ghost Rider is also a stand-out to me as are The Stars Look Down and How It Is.

I tell a lot of people "One Little Victory" (mostly for THE RETURN OF THE PROFESSOR), but in all honesty, "Earthshine" is the song that got me hooked on Rush to begin with (the rest of Vapor Trails is a close second). It's just an amazing song! The chorus was what caught my attention, because of how it contrasts with the rest of the song in my opinion.

One Little Victory, the sound of Neil coming back with that beat at the beginning just works so well!

I was all set to vote for Ghost Rider, but Secret Touch won out because I like the lyrics better, although on GR I love Alex's intro to the song.

Ceiling Unlimited needs love D:

I think I will have voted for Ghost Rider a while ago but, having just given the album a listen, I'll go for Freeze this time.

1. Secret Touch
2. Ceiling Unlimited
3. Earthshine
(4. The Stars Look Down or Peaceable Kingdom)

Criminally underrated album, along with Hold Your Fire.

Earthshine, still remains my favourite track from the album, and ranks in my top 5 Rush songs ever. Regardless of the much commented audio clipping from the original album, it still gets my heart thumping - quite literally in fact, because its one of my powersongs whenever I hit the treadmill or road for a 5 mile run!

The biggest grower of any Rush album, Nocturne is one song that takes my breath away...

But those first five tracks are sublime as well...

Will go for...I dunno...uuuummmm...Nocturne.
