3 stars 2112 was the album that made Rush into one of the biggest bands of the 70's, but is an album that leaves me cold. The title track strikes me as being a disjointed collection of songs rather than a proper epic, especially with the change between The Temple of the Syrinx and Discovery which really ruins the flow of the song. the second half of the album is filled with short songs that seem to me to be little more than high quality hard rock songs, but definitely not prog. Its these shorter songs that I actually get the most enjoyment from on this album, with Tears being the only lamentable effort. Of the three musicians, only Geddy Lee stands out for his impresive bass work, ALex Lifeson shows that he is definitely a competent guitarist but spends most of his time in Lee's shadow whilst Neil Peart earns his monicker as the profesor with a cold precise and workman like performance. I rarely come back to this album as its deficiant to much of the progressive music of the same era.
