5 stars Ah, My first RUSH review. 20 stars, IMHO. So many bongs and bottles and various other substances fuel my love for this piece. Rocked out teenage memories, insightful Ayn Rand philosophies and hairless old aged reminisciences. Partying to Bangkok, sobbing to Tears, banging my head to Something for Nothing and spookin' to the Twilight Zone, yeah, those were days to remember.

2112, the magnum opus, is the real reason to add this disc to our collection. Near perfect in the melding of the classical stylings of Yes or Genesis and the power and glory of Led Zeppelin and the Yardbirds. RUSH put it all together and damn near created the Prog Metal genre with this singular piece. All bow.

RUSH learned the lesson of combining light and dark, the electric and acoustic, to take a epic idea and create a masterpiece of progressive rock. They made an attempt on Caress of Steel, but hit pay-dirt on 2112. A blistering introduction, main story line, heroes entrance, rebellion, battle and magical rebirth (resurrection). Nirvana (the ideal, not the friggin' grunge guys, ya maroon) for the prog 'n' roll soul.

I no longer indulge, but, raise yer bong or beer skyward and scream.... We have assumed control.... We Have Assumed Control.... WE HAVE ASSUMED CONTROL.
