Countdown for me,Carve away the stone a close second. Another one who thinks Test for Echo is such a good album.

Me too.  I know it drives some Rush fans crazy but I absolutely love Dog Years Wacko
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Between The Wheels
Followed closely by
Available Light
The Garden

Rush does indeed know how to close an album!

OMG! This is one of the toughest polls in which I have voted Confused I have to say that all of the songs in the list are great (ones better than others) but my favourite three are Countdown (love the synth), Between the Wheels, and, the last but not least, The Garden, which I believe is a beautiful song, with deep lyrics and great music!

I think my vote goes to The Garden! Clap

Countdown out of the ones I've heard. 
Really dig the sparingly applied synths on that track.

I agree with this idea, and will try the same thing.

The Garden without a doubt. That whole album is a masterpiece! Big smile Should be in the top 20 heavy prog albums!
