5 stars The early progressive masterpiece of Rush!

Indeed, this is a masterpiece in all extention of word, there are many disagrees with this album but this one is in the list of 1001 albums you have to hear before die or something.. I have my first experience with this album thru The Twilight zone when I hear this one i thought wow what a great song! so I got the album and it blew me ok ok not the first time but with severals listenings I loved it.. Also in this album we have the 4 epic of Rush (By tor- Necromancer-The fountain) and perhaps the most popular, everyone have listened Overture/The temples of Syrinx but all the Suite its exciting,,

After this one we have single songs with any reference to the 2112 Suite, but these songs rocks, A passage to Bangkok its a great song with an Oriental riff taste, The Twilight zone is the darkest one here the bass line is amazing, Lesson and Tears contains lyrics written by Alex and Geddy respectivily, both are great song!!.. And the last one is written by Neil maybe if you read the whole history of this album you can find any sense with 2112, by the way the riff on this one is superb.

In summary this great album is a MUST have in any prog rock collection but if you dont think so at least for rush fans is a Must... Give it a deeply try and youŽll love the whole album....Epic!
