The latest issue of Spin Magazine includes an article titled Playlist: The 30 Greatest Instrumental Songs Ever and Rush's YYZ made the cut. Here's what they had to say:

Rush, YYZ (1981)
With Moving Pictures, Geddy Lee and Co. proved they were mightily virtuosic, historically nerdy (rendering the letters "Y-Y-Z" in Morse Code via various musical arrangements), and capable of damn catchy melodies. Then, of course, there's the drum solo.

You can check out the entire list at this link. Thanks to John at for the heads up.
