2112 (the song) is much better than anything on MP, however, MP is a much stronger album all-around.

Moving Pictures

Each of the albums has a special meaning for me, but moving Pictures, following Permanent waves was, one might say, part of my passage to manhood. I had graduated high school, I was out on my own, I was doing and (finally) LISTENING to what I wanted to.. I had recently begun to learn the bass and The album was my inspiration to learn the complexities of bass playing, not just the boring rhythmic drone some bassists  play.

Fire is just too... whatever and TFE just outright sucks big green ones!

I had to vote for Test Of Echo. 2112 is pretty much the only song I listen to from 2112, unless I am in the mood. Moving Pictures is brilliant,  but I prefer the preceding four albums.

Test For Echo is smothered with something I can't define, its absolutely wonderful and at the same time, I get why its hated.  But I love it and I think its pretty unique in its atmosphere! Its a sinister sounding album, and it works for me! It contains some amazing music.
