An album no self-respecting Rush fan should be without !,
By A Customer
This review is from: 2112 (Rmst) (Audio CD)
This album firmly embedded my faith in this band's brilliant musical talent and started Rush's rise to fame. The title track takes up the entire side of the vinyl version but consists of some of the finest music the band ever put together. 'Overture / Temples of Syrinx' a consistent feature in 'Rock Top 100' polls over the years, but the entire '2112' opus is a wonderful musical and vocal rollercoaster. The other songs never quite live up to the title track, although Alex Lifeson's 'Lessons' and the hints of oriental guitar on the fine 'A passage to Bangkok' certainly make fine listening. 'Something for Nothing' is a terrific rocker, a rare Rush ballad 'Tears' and the unusual 'Twilight Zone' roll back the classic 1970's Rush heyday.
