- Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire album is brilliant. Standouts include "Headlong Flight" and "BU2B."
- At least one fan described hearing the title track live as being "like a religious experience." It's that good. It helps that the band backed the second half of their set with a full string ensemble.
- Ear Worm: "The Wreckers."
- Magnum Opus: Word of Peart has it that this is Rush's finest. Fans may or may not agree.
- Tear Jerker: "The Garden" has made more than a few fans cry.
