Special Hologram Edition 180g Vinyl Reissue! Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Direct Metal Mastered from Original Analog Masters at Abbey Road Studios!

Originally released in 1976, Rush’s epic, landmark release 2112 was their creative and commercial breakthrough as well as one of the band’s most highly regarded releases among both fans and critics alike. With lyrics written by Neil Peart, 2112 kicks off with the ambitious seven-suite title track (side one) set in a futuristic world run by the “Priests of the Temples of Syrinx” who determine the content of all reading matter, songs, pictures – every facet of life.

After the mythological journey through “2112,” side two brings you back to the present and continues with five stand-alone tracks. From hard-rocking tracks such as “A Passage to Bangkok,” “Lessons,” and a trip to into the fourth dimension with “The Twilight Zone,” to the album’s soaring conclusion, “Something For Nothing,” 2112 is the album that ushered in the next stage in Rush’s continuing evolution as artists.

Pressed on high fidelity 180gram vinyl, this unique Hologram Edition showcases a custom, hand-drawn hologram of the “Red Star of the Federation” in the album’s dead wax runout of side two. To reveal the spinning hologram, fans can use any focused source of light, such as the LED flashlight on a smartphone, directly above the turntable while playing.

This reissue was remastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process from original analogue masters. Then pressed on high quality 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.

"Instead of choosing between prog rock and heavy rock, both styles are merged together to create an interesting and original approach...2112 is widely considered by Rush fans as their first true "classic" album, the first in a string of similarly high-quality albums." -Greg Prato,
