And if you don't air drum to this jam, check your pulse. Because if you aren't you are probably dead, a vampire or a zombie. And they cant rock any where near us humans. ;)

They don't make songs like this anyomore, or bands for that matter. Everything today is short for instant gratificatio n . The beauty of this song, besides the musicianship and songwriting, is that it engages you and brings you into another world. BEST Rush song EVER!

Many concept albums would probably work better done like this. Pink Floyd's The Wall definitely is one of them.

I wish Pandora could do the Pink Floyd albums like this.

Love the tasty chords & the smooth playing in IV. Presentation . Often overlooked stuff b/c it's buried deep in the middle of this opus.

Geddy gravelly? I dont think so. My kid once said he sounded like one of the Chipmunks! Which I kind of had to acknowledge :) Man I miss this album.

They're cutting into my lunch break, but I can't stop it. Oh, first world problems.

This is a very rare example of Pandora being able to play the entire album (although there might be a few other tracks on 2112). This is because this all counts as one track. Pandora is contractuall y obligated to play only one track from each artist at a time.

Emma: Album rock had a limitation of about 21 minutes, one of Jethro Tull's albums had a suite that lasted right at the limit. I forget which./ Too long ago.

Shortly after discovering the beautiful music of RUSH Wen I was younger I stumbled upon this song/album and all I could say was F*** YEAH! Such a work of art so much energy and passion and the story behind it!! THIS SONG IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE DEFINITION OF ROCK 'N ROLL !!! So much can be said about this song. RUSH is king and no one can top them!! This will forever be a part of my life. Tattooed on my right arm btw...

My absolute favorite.... 2 1 1 2 is a masterpiece. I've seen them in concert more times that I can remember right now, and I will still stop in my tracks the instant I heard anything they've done. 2112 tells the story of the music industry and it is more relevant today than it has ever been.

The beginning sounds like Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haires theme music if anyone knows what I'm talking about haha

My list of Rush's greatest and must haves:
2112 from 2112, Cygnus X-1 from A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, whole album, Natural Science from Permanent Waves, Losing It and The Analog Kid from Signals, Driven from Test for Echo, Animate from Counterparts , Dreamline from Roll the Bones, Moving Pictures whole album, Time Stand Still from Hold Your Fire, Distant Early Warning from Grace Under Pressure. There's definately more...my brain is starting to overload.
