"The Camera Eye" has always been a favorite of mine. Two classic Rush epics, however.

Now and again a poll will shock me! I can't believe it's neck and neck as Natural Science is one of Rush's worst songs from their classic period, Camera Eye on the other hand is fantastic!

Natural Science.  Lot more fosused and less meandering than Camera Eye.

Both songs are top notch IMO, but like I said before, I always choose "The Camera Eye".
Tough poll though.

I feel a nudge ahead for "Natural Science" is necessary. A Rush classic and a forum member, which always swings the vote.

Natural Science...a classic

Camera Eye always seemed a bit lame to me.

The live version of Natural Science on Different Stages is absolutely awesome...

check out both tracks on the band's Bio page:

The version of Natural Science from DS is the one that is on the player...

They're both great of course, but The Camera Eye would have benefited from a bit of editing, maybe by 2 minutes. Natural Science is more focused, so I vote for it. Also, I think that The Camera Eye has a golden aura around it in the minds of many people, because it happens to be on the "Classic" Moving Pictures album. However, I would surely like to hear a live version of it, the only track from MP that has not been included on any official Rush live album so far.

Being a huge Moving Pictures fan, the Camera Eye takes the cake.
