I must have voted Chain Lightning-
I consider this tune a real gem that has slipped through the cracks-never performed live as of yet-this song will one day get its'due.

Sadly enough, "Presto" seems to become kind of the second "Lost album" (after CoS) if you regard live performances. Shame they didn't play anything of that album on the R30 tour but three songs out of RtB which isn't half as good as "Presto" is.

And all those great songs they never played live: Chain Lightning, Presto, Red Tide, Available Light, Scars (or did they play that in 1990?).

My vote goes to Show Don't Tell - one of the best Rush album openers ever. Should be played live on every tour from now on!

This is one of my favorite Rush albums. Definately top 5. I like all the songs on it, except for The Pass, War Paint, and Available Light.

 

I ended up voting for Anagram. I don't know why. It's not really the best, but I like it a lot.

Presto is my 2nd favourite (there we go again) RUSH LP. I'm going with Hand Over Fist on this one because sometimes it is harder to open up to certain people.

I love "The Pass" dearly, and "Scars" and "War Paint" as well, but "Available Light" is such an amazing song. One of my favorites of any band.

 

"Available Light". Geddy Lee wins with the amazing, amazing vocals.

One of my favorite albums...First time I saw them in concert. Got a behind the scenes look because of the crappy seats I got but still fun to watch. I went with Anagram for the soul reason Pratt used Anagrams in lyrics & got them to rhyme....

I'd give anything to see Geddy plain a grand piano on stage to this song. I love the fade out on this one, and the stark "coldness" of the opening.

Available Light

 

It's one of the most powerful Rush songs, at least from my perspective...

 

Oh the wind can carry all the voices of the sea

Oh the wind can carry all the echos home to me

 

Coincidentally, it's what I'm listening to right now...
