For, and to me, I chose "Available Light". The songs "Show Don't Tell", and "the Pass" are close in second, and third from "Presto". Edited by Derek19

I think this is an extremely underrated album, there are a lot of good ones on here. I had no choice but to vote for The Pass though because it literally saved my life.


Geddy's bass solo in Show Don't Tell is amazing. Chain lightning is really cool (I love astronomy and only Rush would write about a meteor shower lol). I play piano and I want to learn Available Light. And then Superconductor is just Rush "sticking it to the man." Presto had some great songs and I didn't think it got the credit it deserved.

It was during War Paint when the giant white bunnies first arose from the top hats on the Presto tour.  That should count for something, right?


Then they'd start bopping around during Tom Sawyer.  Ah, the peoples loved da bunnies.

War Paint.   The muic sounds mascuiline when singing about the guy, then feminine when Geds is singing about the girl.

The Pass a a very close second.  The 2 songs are interchangeable really for 1 and 2.
