Between these 7 Rush epic tracks with a length over 10 minutes what are your two faves?
My choice: 2112 and Xanadu.
I can rank the rest: Necromancer, The Camera Eye, The Fountain of Lamneth, Cygnus X-1 Book I: The Voyage and Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres as least fave. 

Your choice and ranking?

Hemispheres followed by 2112.

Xanadu. Gave my second vote to The Fountain of Lamneth (had to choose between this one and The Camera Eye).

The Fountain of Lamneth is my favorite probably because somehow it touched me shortly after an acid trip when I forgot to stop my media player from going through my collection. I woke up listening to something by Rush I never heard and it's disjointed structure made me go "what album is this?" until I checked and saw it was an epic. Loved it ever since. Second goes to Cygnus part 2. That one is always just a great listen but it took me awhile to realize that.

Necromancer and 2112 have the most hard rockin' moments so I went for those two.

2112 followed by Xanadu, with Book II a close third.
Welcome to the middle of the film.

I remember that moment back in the year 1980 (or was it in 1981 ?) when I heard Rush for the first time (I was happy enough to hear 2112 record as the first ever Rush album) and my astonishment I felt then. It is 2112 suite which started my Rush affection (especially for their 70's and 80's works). And so - can I vote differently? No! 2112 proudly gets my vote.
