4 stars This is the only Rush album that I own- which is a shame really because it's excellent. The epic 2112 is easily the strongest track on the album, with some incredible playing from prog's greatest trios (that's right ELP, you heard me correctly), especially on my favourite section, The Temples of Syrinx. The epic tells a tale of a man in the future who discovers a guitar and his struggle to bring the light of music to the people of the future. The album is not let down by it's shorter tracks in any way, with excellent pieces of music such as A Passage to Bangkok, which lifts me full of glee and musical appreciation on every listen, and Tears, which show why Rush stand out amongst other prog bands- because they are masters of combining musical prowess with accessibility. This album really is a good one for any prog fans, and an essential album for fans of Rush and heavy prog. 4 stars.
