Went with Snakes.  Better sound, and the better individual tracks are...better.

CA by far.  To me, the only dud (not counting BU2B2) is 7CoG.  I instantly loved most of the other songs (though I'm not as into The Anarchist as most CA fans).  I still like S&A (I think whether you like S&A, generally, comes down to whether or not you agree with Neil's views toward religion in society, which I wholeheartedly do), but there are more filler songs (Spindrift, Good News First, We Hold On).  Far Cry, Workin' Them Angels, and The Way the Wind Blows (as well as the instrumentals) are great songs, and I absolutely loved Faithless on the Time Machine Tour.  But it's definitely CA for me, overall.

I just thought of something...I wonder if you sync up S&A with Bill Maher's "Religulous" if it matches up like Dark Side of the Moon with Wizard of Oz...(not likely, since in Rush's case, the album came before the film...still, maybe I'll try that when I get home...on second thought, maybe not, haha :lol: ).

Come on, I just revived the old "CA vs SA" one! Do we need another one?

I don't care how many threads i gotta say it in these threads......Snakes all day any day.  I like CA less and less every day.

That Album made a so-so first impression.........and wears even worse with time.

I like them both equally. Snakes has more good songs than CA, but CA has a few better songs than SA so it's a tie for me.

Although I might lean towards CA because of the anarchist. :)

Doesn't matter.  Zumbi says we need another one.  

Today I will vote for CA (even though I haven't been able to get Spindrift out of my mind).  Tomorrow, who knows?

Zumbi also thinks that 90% of us are jerks. So...

Today I vote for Ed Muskie.

CA is actually growing on me. Still not jumping through hoops for it, but I like it.

S&A never grew on me.

Kenny, keep listening to it.  Maybe once a week.  Or every two weeks.   I am shocking even myself when I say this, but S&A has a way of growing on  you.  ;)

There's something superior about Snakes to me. It breathes more, it grooves more, it has  a certain liveliness to it that Clockwork Angels fails to capture. I still love CA, but I've gotta go with Snakes
