Side 1 isn't that great. Side 2 is amazing.

I look forward to your transition.

Transition? Been listening to it for nearly 30 years trying to figure out why people
Think its so great. Its easily 5 minutes too long. Dont get me wrong its a great piece of music just could have used some judicious editing.

Well...I still don't get the hype for...erm...ATWAS...
It rocks. Whats not to like about it? Dare I hype it too much.

I currently do not enjoy most of the tracklist, but I do think thee versions of every song on the album matches or surpasses what they did in the studio.

There is no "may be" about it.

La Villa IS the best instrumental Rush song ever and one of the best instrumental songs written by any band ever.

I am not saying other instrumentals of Rush are not great, but none of them come close to LVS!

I agree with that, too- but La Villa is top, without question.

Nightwish today release instrumental versions of every new album, and I really REALLY wish we could hear some of Rush's albums this way. I am not saying I wish they released albums without vocals, but Hemispheres without vocals would be mesmerising!

I didn't even have to think.  La Villa alone wins it for side two.  But that's not hard, considering what a PoS side one is.

Side 1. It's just epic.  Nothing against side 2 but 1 is perfect.
