4 stars I remember vividly how this album has influenced young men in my country who love rock music in the seventies. In many places around Jakarta I can see many graffiti with big letters: RUSH 2112. Yeah, this album rocked the world, I think. Even until now I still find many places with 2112 graffiti. It's so rocking. Musically, through this album Rush has demonstrated their music direction and its standing among the seventies rockers. Their music is still using hard rock as the basis and the band compose their music with multi-part structures combining diverse styles with many tempo changes. The center of this album is of course the epic title track that also serves as album opener: the twenty-one-twelve (2112). The epic comprises seven parts that all together make up a twenty minute stream of full rock music. From the colossal opening "Overture" this epic starts to cast an excellent kind of music especially through guitar riffs and musical harmonies augmented wonderfully with drum work. "Temples of The Syrinx" with high register notes voice by Geddy Lee in relatively fast tempo. The diverse music styles for all parts in this epic has made a strong label for the band as progressive band. The other highlight of this album is the band's favorite for live performance: "A Passage to Bangkok". This track has a wonderful riffs and great melody.

Overall, it's an excellent addtition to any prog rock collection.

Progressively yours, GW
