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.
