 A glimpse into the future

| | See all Necromancer's reviews (11)

When this album was originally released it was well in advance to what was available at the time. Since then it has become a classic and is generally regarded as being Rush's greatest album. The 2112 side follows on seemlessly telling a story of music in the future and how it would be controlled, only to be re-born through the efforts of an individual. You cannot fail to listen and appreciate the bands talent which still shows today. A must have.

 Rush at their very best

A total musical masterpiece. One of Rush's best albums, a must have for anybody.

 future shock

| | See all frankpoole's reviews (433)

inspired by ayn rands short novel `anthem`which paints a bleak picture of a dystopian future where you are told what to do from birth to death,you have no say so,no opinion and any transgression is dealt with harshly.modern day comparisons would be communism and korea (the bad one).side one of this groundbreaking album deals with this but unlike the story in which the storyteller finds how to make light,the protagonist in 2112 finds a guitar from a time when music was not banned.this album became the benchmark for all side spanning albums and when i first heard it in 1976 even as a 15 year old,it blew me away.side 2 is a little lighter,`a passage to bangkok` with its drug references is still a fan fave.the rest of the songs are very good but once you have listened to side 1,side 2 does not compare.classic album.

 Nothing less than astonishing

In the winter of 1976, Rush recorded what was to become their defining moment, their ultimate tour de force. For many it's their signature album, and it's impossible to overstate its importance in the band's canon.

The piece which comprises the first side of this remarkable album, 2112 itself, is nothing less than a meisterwerk. Lyrically, it's the tale of a young man who discovers a guitar in a cave, in a bleak totalitarian future where authoritarian priests control every aspect of daily life, inspired apparently by Ayn Rand's Anthem. Like The Fountain Of Lamneth from the band's previous album, it's a sidelong 'epic' piece. But where its predecessor was, in truth, really a set of standalone songs united by a single concept, 2112 is a single piece in several parts, all in all a more direct, accomplished work. It's a very, very dynamic piece too, performed with a purposeful, passionate intensity that commands attention; pregnant passages of exquisite, delicate beauty give birth to moments of dizzying, almost orchestral power, driven home by Lifeson's gripping, soaring, spine-tingling, emotive guitar, all polished to a dazzling presence by Terry Brown's exquisite production.

Side Two, as we used to call it in the days when music was made available to the masses in the form of 12-inch diameter black vinyl discs, does not disappoint either. It's often overlooked due to the iconic status of the title piece, yet there are some great tunes here too, performed and produced with consummate taste, flair and style. Something For Nothing and A Passage to Bangkok are classic hard-hitting, stylish Rush tunes, Tears is an extraordinarily mature ballad with a remarkable lush, atmospheric production. And perhaps remarkably, it's Side Two where the guitar work really shines - witness the delicate, perfect, crisp rhythm work on Twilight Zone and the magnificent, intense lead guitar which graces Something For Nothing.

Rush would go from here to expand their musical boundaries and deliver music of ever greater sophistication, at least until 1987. They would never have been capable of a La Villa Strangiato, a YYZ or a Subdivisions in the winter of 1976; yet they would never again catch the magical combination of sheer passion, intensity and above all, drama of the epic piece which gave this album its title. This was their extraordinary moment in time, lightning captured in a bottle, the album they were born to create. A staggering achievement; truly a musical work of towering stature.
