Rush, 2112



Rush’s 2112 is progressive metal at its best.

And the understated album art only enhances the music; its simplicity contrasts nicely with the musical complexity within.

The front cover has the evil red star, which came to symbolize collectivist oppression. The back cover features the iconic “starman” (who would appear with Rush for decades, always striving for the rights of the individual) pushing against the star.

A classic cover for a classic album.

The starman and star from the back would look so cool painted on a copy of the record.

On the vinyl? Are you crazy? Why ruin a perfectly good LP? Maybe it could be painted on a CD. At least that format will be obsolete soon.

I like Rush, but their weak link was ALWAYS the drumming. Lose Peart and you have yourself a band.
