In 2002 Vapor Trails tour, I saw 2 guys dancing to Natural Science. Tip: NEVER dance to Natural Science.

@bassman true that! Just the same, the last time one of my local radio stations was cool was when they played Side 1 of Hemispheres from start to end *in the middle of the day!!*

Bought this album after hearing it on Pandora. You miss out on the great 10 minute songs through other sources.

Regular radio stations never play unbelievable songs like natural science! These guys are from another planet. Their instrumentat i o n is unparalleled ! Been listening to this song since 84' and it still sounds fresh

Absolutely mind blowing. Not a bad song on Permanent Waves? How about not even an average song on the whole album?

OH, MY GOOD, SWEET GOD! Wow! I originally thought this killer song was off of Vapor Trails. To see that it was off of Permanent Waves completely blew my mind, but it completely proves that these guys, when Neil Peart joined, knew exactly what they were doing. Truly, truly incredible song.

listen to this song ...then realise when it was written, 1980.. so ahead of its time.

Man this is just a great song! Every time I hear it I just love it. I also love the tempo changes and stuff, it is definatley one of the best RUSH songs from that era.

Great comments from you guys! This is one of my favorite Rush songs from this era. The tempo changes are amazing and it's just a lot of fun to listen to, especially when it starts to really rock!

I agree...The change-ups are sick and hearing it live has been a real treat.
Great lyrics by Peart and vocals by Lee. Fantastic song. Miss this avenue from the guys.

A true RUSH gem. I'm glad they have left it in the play list the last several tours.I never tire of hearing it live or CD.
