4.5 the men of high places BUTCHGAYLORD | 06/05/2009 | See all BUTCHGAYLORD's reviews (3) 1976. It is very hard to believe that 3 long-haired Canadians made this vinyl in a studio in 1976.2112 was contemporary listening amongst my school friends in 1983. Rush was always ahead of their time. This album is memorable for its musical craftsmanship, power, passion, and interesting journeys. Everything that they had been working towards finally came to fruit on this album - that was probably why they included the entire first side on their All The World's A Stage live album. This is gibbon music at its quintessential best!
