2112 (Bonus Tracks)

by Rush
2112 by Rush
Released: Apr 1976
The song "2112" tells the tale of a future ruled by evil priests who strangle creativity and destroy the last guitar in existence. An intergalactic war ensues, but the ultimate fate of the now-guitarless universe is left ambiguous. Many fans consider this the definitive Rush album, and with the titular seven-part suite and the brain-folding mathematical equations Lifeson, Lee and Peart work out with their instruments -- the Rush-ness of it all -- they have a point. What is often sadly overlooked is the impact the beginning of "A Passage to Bangkok" had on the Vapors song "Turning Japanese."
