5 stars Wow!! I love this album. To my mind this is Rush's magnum opus. I loved it when I heard it the first time on its release and I never grow tired of it. 1. 2112 - Taking up the entire side one of the album is a masterpiece and it is one of my all time favorite prog epics. This track is such a jump from any of the previous Rush tracks and to my own mind it has never been bettered by Rush. 2. A passage to Bankok - I love this one as well and for me it has one of the most instantly recognisable opening rock riffs - up there with Smoke on the Water and Radar Love. 3. The Twilight Zone - absolutely brilliant - instant classic shorter track. 4. Lessons - Very good rocker. 5. Tears - I love this soft track, it is one of those tracks that can bring a tear to the eye it is so emotive and good. 6. Something for nothing - this I find to be the weakest track on the album but that doesn't make it weak compared to other rock fare.

This album will always be one of my favorite albums to listen to and it will always feature on my "to play" lists - I never tire of it. Spooling it up is like sitting in an easy chair next to a very good old friend.
