Yeah, but no.

I grew up with its 5'25" excerpt on the sampler Rock Buster, which I love unreservedly, but never quite warmed to the noodling bookending it.

I'd certainly vote for Moon In June, though!

I surprised myself by picking "Xanadu" over "2112." Maybe because I listened to it more recently. Maybe I just realized it's better.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

The noodling is actually my favorite bit. Sometimes I just rewind that part over and over. Hypnotic and somehow reassuring. I like the band parts too of course.
