3 stars So here it is, Rush's moving through a really good direction in prog rock. I always say that Rush is not one of my favorites, I don't really like them a lot, but no one denies that they are giants! They did a great work in this album ONLY in the epic 2112, one of the best songs that I have heard in my life, it is really great, one of their true masterpieces! But really there's nothing else to say about side 1. Side 2 is completely different, asi it includes 6 short songs that I really don't like, almost every song is the same as the last one, they clearly wasted all their energy in the outstanding suite, that they had no more material and they got these songs out from somewhere (that's how they sound). I'll put it this way, if you group together all 6 songs in side 2, it will represent less than 30% of the greatness of 2112. I could give this album a 5 star rating if it was something like 2112 part 1 and part 2, one on each side, or something like that, but the songs on side 2 are really poor, it's a shame. Nevertheless a good finding and really nice music, every prog fan should listen to it, really...
