another really solid incredibly consistent rush album. spirit of the radio was always such a powerful radio and concert track to me though that i fell in love with it above all others on the album, though of course natural science is brilliant and the guitar solo on the excellent freewill is close to alex's best...

I love Freewill.

The solo is by far the best I have ever heard from any band.

When I went to the 30 yr concert last year, his hands almost caught fire firedevil.gif


But...I still chose The Spirit of the Rado,

It is just a classic..

(its the official Rush website BGM for crying out loud!)

Spirit of Radio is my fave!! Its the 1st 2.gif song I ever heard.. and the one that got my attention. Must admit... it wasn't until my time in Saskatoon that I really paid more attention to them. Ever since my time in Canada... I been following 2.gif

This has got to be the toughest 'best song' poll for me cos it's the album that changed my musical awareness. A 13 years old kid growing up in the glam rock/disco/early punk era and then my friend plays me P/W. One of those moments that stays with me.

I had to vote for N/S purely for it's wow factor, but in truth i love them all. It's for me the complete Rush album. It flows from start to finish. It's up-beat, technical, sad, piledriving, thought provoking. One listen and I was blown away. I love what came before and all that has come since, but P/W still remains my #1.
