Such a GREAT album! I only really ever skip the 3 instrumentals and Good News First. Everything else is just wonderful.

 

If I am forced to pick a Top 10:

 

01. The Way the Wind Blows

02. Bravest Face

03. Workin' Them Angels

04. We Hold On

05. Far Cry

06. Faithless

07. The Larger Bowl (A Pantoum)

08. Spindrift

09. Armor and Sword

10. Good News First

 

Honestly any one of the songs in my Top 5 could be #1 for me. They are all spectacular and among RUSH's finest work. This album also contains my absolute favourite lyrics by Neil. I really like his approach to social justice and atheism on Snakes & Arrows. It means so much to me to have such important topics that are very dear to me personally given a voice to in a thoughtful and engaging way. I cannot express enough how meaningful this album is to me from a lyrical perspective.

Hope is so beautiful! Why is it a filler to you?

Half the album is filler.

 

Anytime I listen to Spindrift I feel like running into the eye of a hurricane. This isn't a compliment.

 

Bravest Face might be my least favorite Rush song of all time. It's top 5 easy that's for sure.

 

So I listened to S&A twice in a row today and changed my mind from earlier---it's not half filler.

There are 3 or 4 that are filler and another 2 that I don't care about. The other half is decent or good.

Awe man...I actually like Spindrift.

 

We Hold On, Good news First, and Bravest Face, however, make me want to kick myself in the head.

I like "Spindrift." However I prefer the Spindrift in Cannery Row in Monterey California. Great hotel.

 

"We Hold On" is beyond overrated. I wanted that track played live.

 

Love the end. Neil kills it with that fill. The song is EPIC.

 

I love "Available Light" at the end of "Presto" too.

 

I love "Countdown."

 

I love "Vital Signs."

 

Rush ends their albums with masterpieces.

Good News First I can get by with a light slap in the face.

 

We Hold On is the kick in the head.

 

Bravest Face I'm going for hurling myself into the heart of an exploding sun.

Why bravest face tends to get some stick i don't know, clicked with me straight off the bat as an all-time rush classic.

 

Hated good news first with a passion for a couple years but now gets in my top 3, completed by far cry of course

 

Spindrift, larger bowl & malnar my fillers but they ok really

Dude you sound like me about everything. Stop it! Hate something and just stop liking it more and more! KEEP THAT MIND CLOSED AND DON'T OPEN YOUR HEART TO CHANGE!
