I think Natural Science is the best on this album, and I'm not surprised it leads in the poll. I think it really exemplifies their creativity and superior skills as musicians.

It was hard not to vote for Spirit of Radio because it was the song that introduced me to the greatness of RUSH. I was 14 or 15 at the time, and had just began to crawl from under the shadow of my Dad's music and the disco-type stuff on the popular AM radio stations. There were a bunch of rock songs and artists I liked, but I'll never forget the first time I heard Spirit of Radio. I went out out bought the album not long after that, and RUSH has been the center of my music universe ever since. I had to vote Natural Science though. It is definitely my favorite song on this album, and one of my top 5 overall.

Freewill. Complex time changes, thoughtful lyrics, astounding playing. "Genetic blends with uncertain ends" becomes a favourite of mine for Geddy's vocal delivery. The bass throughout. Wow!!!

Tough one - while I fell for Rush on listening to The Spirit of Radio,


it's definitely


Jacob's Ladder


that keeps on sending goose bumps down my spine.








Apart from that, I cherish Entre-nous for its timeless beauty.
