Futuristic sci-fi imagery, virtuoso technique, absolutely killer rock riffs it all came together on Rush's 1976 concept album 2112 . The title opus joins A Passage to Bangkok; Something for Nothing; Tears; Lessons , and more!
Only Rush could have pulled this off, and only in the '70s. 2112--the title suite of the band's 1976 breakthrough album--is a comically pretentious, futuristic rock opera written by a nerdy drummer and sung by a whiny-voiced geek. It also happens to be a great piece of rock & roll that lifts the listener through a variety of moods and textures from genteel acoustic ("Oracle") to thrilling metal ("The Temples of Syrinx"). Perhaps realizing that they had taken conceptualism about as far as it could go, even these guys backed off on the epic hero stuff for later releases. 2112 still stands as one of the great signposts of the prog-rock era. --Michael Ruby

I belive that Peart didn't completey devote himself to one school of thought. Peart had alot of personal ideas that clearly didn't fall into the Rand school of thought, i.e. praise of Woodstock, ect. I don't know much about Sterling, but it is clear in songs like "Hemispheres", "A... Read More
