  • 1976 yilinda cikan, rush'un 4. studyo albumu, kadroda geddy lee, alex lifeson ve ustad neil peart, trio'nun en onemli albumlerinden biridir. yakla$ik 21 dakikalik epik 2112 overture, a passage to bangkok, twilight zone, lessons, tears ve something for nothing ile a farewell to kings'e bir girizgah niteligindedir*. me$hur kizil pentagram'in ilk belirdigi albumdur, konsept olarak gelecekte kurulmu$ baskici ve totaliter bir toplum ve muzigin uretime katkisi olmadigi icin yasaklandigi bir zamani anlatir.
    ciyak ciyak bir geddy lee olsa da, gitar agirlikli album, her rush fan'i icin olmazsa olmazlardandir.

    ayrica bu entry de benim 2112. entry'm olmu$ (silinenler olursa degi$ecektir elbet), bunu hatirlatan lady melyche'ye te$ekkuru borc biliyorum...
  • sanat eseri.
  • kapağı ayrı bir güzel olan albüm.
  • 21 aralik 1976'da dogan rush-severler icin harika bir dogumgunu hediyesi. ayrica nefis ve bitmek bilmez bir parcadir kendisi.
  • ilklerden biri olmasina ragmen rush'in en iyi albumu, olmadi ilk 3'e girer.

    (bkz: counterparts)
    (bkz: grace under pressure)
  • bu albumdeki tum sarkilar cok guzeldir, ama tears ve the twilight zone bence en guzelleridir.

    ayrica albumun kapaginin icinde adamlarimizin herbiri digerinden ilginc gorunur. bana birazdan "kiyaaaa" nidalariyla uzerinize atilacaklar hissi veriyorlar nedense (kiyafetlerden mi kusaklardan mi emin olamadim).
  • neil peart, ayn rand'in anthem adli kitabindan esinlenmistir sarkinin sozlerini yazarken. 2112'deki karakterimiz, bir gitar bulurken, kitaptaki karakter bir ampul bulmaktadir. tabii o gitarin neyi sembolize ettigine dair n tane yorum vardir. hikayenin grand finale ile soliloquy kisimlari arasinda neler oldugu da yoruma aciktir. sarkinin butunu ise harikadir.
  • rush'in ilk basyapiti. digerleri icin (bkz: moving pictures), (bkz: a farewell to kings), (bkz: hemispheres), (bkz: permanent waves).

  • sözlerini de yazayım tam olsun.

    i. overture

    and the meek shall inherit the earth...

    ii. temples of syrinx

    we've taken care of everything
    the words you hear, the songs you sing
    the pictures that give pleasure to your eyes.
    it's one for all and all for one
    we work together, common sons
    never need to wonder how or why.

    we are the priests of the temples of syrinx
    our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    we are the priests, of the temples of syrinx
    all the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    look around at this world we've made
    equality our stock in trade
    come and join the brotherhood of man
    oh, what a nice, contented world
    let the banners be unfurled
    hold the red star proudly high in hand.

    we are the priests of the temples of syrinx
    our great computers fill the hallowed halls.
    we are the priests, of the temples of syrinx
    all the gifts of life are held within our walls.

    iii. discovery

    what can this strange device be?
    when i touch it, it gives forth a sound
    it's got wires that vibrate and give music
    what can this thing be that i found?

    see how it sings like a sad heart
    and joyously screams out its pain
    sounds that build high like a mountain
    or notes that fall gently like rain.

    i can't wait to share this new wonder
    the people will all see its light
    let them all make their own music
    the priests praise my name on this night.

    iv. presentation

    i know it's most unusual
    to come before you so
    but i've found an ancient miracle
    i thought that you should know
    listen to my music
    and hear what it can do
    there's something here as strong as life
    i know that it will reach you.

    yes, we know, it's nothing new
    it's just a waste of time
    we have no need for ancient ways
    the world is doing fine
    another toy will help destroy
    the elder race of man
    forget about your silly whim
    it doesn't fit the plan.

    i can't believe you're saying
    these things just can't be true
    our world could use this beauty
    just think what we might do.
    listen to my music
    and hear what it can do
    there's something here as strong as life
    i know that it will reach you.

    don't annoy us further!
    we have our work to do.
    just think about the average
    what use have they for you?
    another toy will help destroy
    the elder race of man
    forget about your silly whim
    it doesn't fit the plan!

    v. oracle: the dream

    i wandered home though the silent streets
    and fell into a fitful sleep
    escape to realms beyond the night
    dream can't you show me the light?

    i stand atop a spiral stair
    an oracle confronts me there
    he leads me on light years away
    through astral nights, galactic days
    i see the works of gifted hands
    that grace this strange and wondrous land
    i see the hand of man arise
    with hungry mind and open eyes

    they left the planet long ago
    the elder race still learn and grow
    their power grows with purpose strong
    to claim the home where they belong
    home to tear the temples down...
    home to change!

    vi. soliloquy

    the sleep is still in my eyes
    the dream is still in my head
    i heave a sigh and sadly smile
    and lie a while in bed
    i wish that it might come to pass
    not fade like all my dreams...

    just think of what my life might be
    in a world like i have seen!
    i don't think i can carry on
    carry on this cold and empty life

    my spirits are low in the depths of despair
    my lifeblood...
    ...spills over...

    vii. the grand finale

    attention all planets of the solar federation
    attention all planets of the solar federation
    attention all planets of the solar federation
    we have assumed control.
    we have assumed control.
    we have assumed control.
