The "battle" of the best of Rush!

I edited this to add if you would please explain why you chose one song over the other.

Thank you!

Natural Science. The live version on Rio is just to killer for me to ignore. Behind In The End live it may be my favorite Rush recording all-time...... :)

I was just about to pop in Rush in Rio just for Natural Science.   I'll watch the R30 one too to see which one is better.

The other one's on Snakes, not R30.  The Snakes one is good too and Alex's guitar sounds better on Snakes and Arrows Live IMO. But as always, that crowd in RiR is too good to pass up.

You really think that highly of Available Light aye? I heard it again yesterday and I will say it is very different from most of their music. I can't even explain why from a musical perspective but it is just different.....

It's the closest to jazz they've ever gotten... and I love it.

Oh yeah, it's up there, jazziness-wise. Maybe even second to AL, or tied.
