"YYZ", one of Spin Magazine's "30 Greatest Instrumental Songs Ever"

The latest issue of Spin Magazine includes their list of "The 30 Greatest Instrumental Songs Ever".  Included is Rush's YYZ (as an aside, I couldn't help but notice that missing from this list is The Police's "Behind My Camel", winner of the 1982 Best Rock Instrumental Performance Grammy - YYZ was also nominated):
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." -, May 6, 2011 Thanks to John @ for the headsup!
