1. Hemispheres
2. The Fountain of Lamneth
3. 2112

But I voted for The Fountain, because Hemispheres will get enough votes without mine, and I fear The Fountain won't.

2112, by a wide margin.  Never liked Hemispheres, and Fountain of Lamneth is not even a proper epic in my opinion.  It's just six songs with pauses in between, and the sixth one happens to be a copy of the first.  They're good songs, but I refuse to think of it as an epic just because Rush tells me to.

2112 lightyears ahead of the other two, not that fan of Fountain.

2112 for me, I totally agree with steve about The Fountain Of Lamneth not being a proper epic.

I would vote for The Necromancer if it was here though.

Don't know the first one, but from the other two I like 2112 best. No vote though.

Hemispheres. 2112 and The Fountain of Lamneth don't even come close!

I have never heard Fountain and am not a great fan of either 2112 or Hemispheres. So no vote.

I like Rush a lot, but somehow I don't like Rush Epics. Guess I am an 80s Rush fan and beyond. I think I have heard those tracks, but I can´t even remeber them, so no vote from my side.
