It was my first Rush cd and it's not really my favorite anymore. It's hard to compete with Moving Pictures or Hemispheres. But listening to it now (and playing along to it... still remember how!) it's just amazing. In particular, 2112 the song is great. I've been listening to albums as a whole lately as opposed to a song by song basis. How fitting that 2112 sounds like a complete work, with recurring themes. It's so simple, but the amazing bass playing and layered guitars just give it an amazing sound. Great cd! EDIT: The rest of the cd is better crafted than I once imagined. I just ear-played my way through the Twilight Zone, an old favorite, and it's just so cool. The soft, slow solo at the end with the cool bass fills... too great.
