Caress of Steel is great. Its the first album of epic songs and I kinda see it as a prequel to 2112.

Missions is an amazing song off of the massively underrated, Hold Your Fire

1. Cygnus: Hemispheres 
2. 2112
3. The Necromancer
4. Natural Science
5. La Villa Strangiato
6. Xanadu
7. A Farewell to Kings
8. Subdivisions
9. Mission
10. Limelight
--------
11. The Camera Eye
12. The Weapon
13. Analog Kid
14. Freewill
15. Double Agent

^ Great to see Mission in your list! Hold Your Fire is probably my favourite 80's Rush album along with Signals, of course.

Actually, crap, I forgot that Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures were 80's albums! Embarrassed I always think of them as 70's albums. Okay, what I really meant was that Hold Your Fire and Signals are my two favourites, post 81. LOL

Great to see some 90's material. Maybe not Prog, but it's still awesome Rush music!
I love The Pass! Neil and Ged have stated that it's one of the most emotional songs they've ever written. Alex's solo is amazing, as well.
