Thank you ! I don't hate it but somehow these songs fail to keep my attention. Except A passage To Bangkok.

pre-A Farewell To Kings, RUSH for me was a band I liked among many other bands. There were a few songs I didn't really like on each record.

...but with A Farewell To Kings and the three albums that followed, RUSH became my favorite band !
I enjoy all of side two but I am in the minority I'm afraid....

There is only one 2112s2 song I don't enjoy and that is The Twilight Zone. I even like Tears and Lessons, which seem to be major targets for intense dislike...

There is not one song on 2112 that doesn't rock my socks off. I can't get enough of this album.

Can I just say that I also adore the whole of side two as well...

But 2112 is one of the few songs that has moved me to tears.

I'd have to say the title track is bloody marvelous! I especially enjoyed the Overture/Temples of Syrinx because it immediately launches you into the story with full on power rock!

The Twilight Zone certainly lives up to its name, I barely heard the show and thanks to Rush I'm now doing some discovering on the programme!

I do have to admit though, I find the second half a little underwhelming.
