Prog Hard Rock
Although only the title track (20 minutes of prog heaven) can be considered anything essential, this is still an essential release in my book for any hard rock fan and probably for any progger. This is of the the standard entry level prog albums, not just Rush albums, and this along with Yes' Fragile can easily convert even the most jaded rock fan who knows nothing of this word 'prog'.

A great early Rush album, lyrically and musically. It's a shame that some of the choices on the short pieces feel a little weak.

I am RushFan4 and this is RushAlbum4. Their first masterpiece. 2112 is the epic story to end all epic stories. The Necromancer and the Fountain of Lamneth were both excellent songs, but 2112 is awesome. Side 2 is also quite good, with Passage of Bangkok being one of my all time favorite Rush songs, and Tears being one of my favorite Rush unknown songs.

It's a shame that the album with what in my opinion is Rush's
best song, also has songs that detract from it. The opening
track is definitely my favorite song by everyone and has been
since I heard it for the first time maybe 6 or 7 years ago
(around age 10 or so). With the exception of "2112" and
"Something for Nothing", the tracks aren't all that special.
Not until their next album would they release a record that was
strong throughout. If I were to buy this album already knowing
the songs, I'd only be buying it for the title track.
