Editors’ Notes

Considered one of Rush's finest albums by fans and a highly celebrated prog-rock album by everyone, 2112 is a landmark of sound and concept. The trio's peerless musicianship has long been acknowledged, and it's on full display here. The deluxe edition's bonus live tracks—recorded in 1980-81 in Canada and the U.K.—make a solid argument for Rush's impeccable concert reproductions. However, the original album—here in glorious remastered sound—is the timeless draw. What was originally the first side—the 20-minute, seven-part epic "2112," inspired in part by Ayn Rand's writings, particularly the book Anthem—explores the idea of a monolithic government, the Red Star of the Solar Federation, outlawing music and personal expression, only for its people to be liberated in the final moments. The intricate piece has become a textbook example of prog-rock. The second side's opening, "A Passage to Bangkok," became another concert staple that (along with the remainder of the album side) proved that Rush had no trouble writing short pieces with great emotional heft.

Customer Reviews

RUSH 2112

2112 is a true work of art and will forever be one of the best albums EVER.


2112 in 5.1

The best epic album of all time just got better with 5.1 surround sound, and 3 unreleased live music from the album. Also highly recommend getting the iComic of 2112 because for the first time ever, the 40-page comic, created by Tim Hodges, brings not just the song, but the entire album into visual reality. Definitely a must-listen for all Rush fans, old and new.

100 Years Ahead of It's Time!

2112 is a RUSH that was, is & will always be a century ahead of it's time! This is my all time favorite RUSH album (yes, Album! That's how we played this one, back in the day). Remastered just in time for Christmas... Ho Ho Ho! I know what I'm buying today (-/-,) If you're new to the RUSH world; this is a good place to satrt. Toss in Fly By Night & Tom Sawyer... Maybe Limelights... & oohhh I'm getting nastalgic here... Must me an Auld Lang Syne kind of thing. HAPPTY NEW YEAR!
