Natural Science in a heartbeat.

And since I didn't participate in the last poll, yes, Natural Science is much better than Jacob's Ladder as well.

Nothing against TCE, but Natural Science is a lot better.

Natural Science by far.  The Camera Eye got new life with the live treatment, but I've never been a huge fan of the song...especially compared to other "epics".

Sorry but Camera Eye for me. Had to give a token vote even though it's for nothing.
Love both of them and I think these 2, Xanadu and 2112 are the big epics from Rush for me.

I think the build up to Camera Eye just doesn't do it for many people, amongst other things, but when it gets going the riffs and solos are awesome. But I love Natural Science too so the difference between them, for me, is miniscule.

I actually prefer the intro to Camera Eye over the slow acoustic Natural Science intro.  And I agree with you regarding the main riff and solos.  Natty Sci has a little more going on and better captures the RUSH prog era, though.  So for me this is a case of Natural Science being a bit "better", even though I prefer the Camera Eye.
