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.

I listened to this over and over in high school and college -- 30 years ago now! Good memories.

I wish I could live to make it to the year 2112
nicslager
They don't make songs like this anymore
nicslager
Love this song
Wow this song is just jaw dropping
Definitely one of their best songs ! Except it says gravelly male vocalist? Geddy is the opposite of gravelly !

20 minutes later.....

Such a power trio
nicslager
Ruch a its finest
This has to be one of my favorite songs by rush
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.

Wake up song of the day!

I can't believe I listened to the WHOLE thing!!
Btw, I'm there right now, peter. ~:)
@huskinator: the album you're thinking of is "Thick As A Brick", one of their best, imo.

Multiple times peter....
Who here hasn't gotten stoned to this?
Overture is probably the best part in my oppinion, such great musicianship .

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.
even though i am young to like this music this album is better than most kind of music kids my age listen to
Heard this for the 1st time on the tech bus to upper bucks tech school on 8-track when it came out. Thank you to the guy who bought it. Helped change things for me. Think that makes me old lol.
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...
Best.
20 minutes of aural bliss

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.
How bout lyrics pandora
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.
jsodicoff
I wish more music like this had been produced
Really? By how much?
Actually Supper's Ready by Genesis is longer.
All the similar tracks are by Led Zeppelin. XD I'm surprised that no one else has said this, but this has got to be the longest song ever.

Timeless and always a thrill to hear even after all these years. Probably the best album Rush ever put out.
The theme of 2112 is timeless and still relevant after all these years. A true masterpiece! ! !
Comparing this to the new generation is truly sad. Why couldn't music stay the same
I really wish they continued the 'story' of 2112 on side two of the album. Introduced different characters, etc...
Pretty awesome! Can' believe they put the whole side up here. Very cool.

The first time I heard this it literally changed my life forever. I ldid not know it at the time.
great story, set to great music, by THE GREAT TRIO.
Greatest three piece of all time.
scottaharris o n
Good stuff
Still love it 25 years later, timeless, epic.
All hail the priests of the temples of syrinx!!!
Thank you, Pandora. 20+ minutes of one of my favorite bands during a slow work day was awesome. I'm impressed that the WHOLE suite is played.
20 minutes of one of the best progressive rock bands there has ever been
I had to hitchhike to buy this album when it came out when I was in 10th grade...I'm now 50 and can proudly say this still is the only album I would walk 10 miles to buy...didn't catch them live until their Hemispheres tour.
(pssst....I' d hitchhike to buy Hemispheres, too...but don't tell anyone!)
