"I lie awake, staring out at the bleakness of Megadon. City and sky become one, merging into a single plane, a vast sea of unbroken grey. The twin Moons, just two pale orbs as they trace their way across the steely sky. I used to think I had a pretty good life here, just plugging into my machine for the day, then watching Templevision or reading a Temple Paper in the evening.

My friend flopnuts always said it was nicer here than under the atmospheric domes of the Outer Planets. We have had peace since 2062, when the surviving planets were banded together under the Red Star of the Solar Federation. The less fortunate gave us a few new moons.

I believed what I was told, I thought It was a good life, I thought I was happy. Then I found something that changed it all.....

It is based on the writings on Anne Rand. And that "bad musical rip-off" is a classic that has went triple platinum, and is considered one of the most original masterpieces in Music.

Umm yeah, I know the quote. Rush uses it to kick off 2112-in dramatic fashion I might add.

That quote pretty much sums up 2112.

Ah, yes. My bad. A quick google shows it's based on "Anthem". Revolt in 2100 was just my first thought when I heard it the first time. Similar plotlines.

BTW- It's Ayn Rand. And still, a poor musical rip-off of a decent work of literature. As for sales, so what? How many copies of the Bridges of Madison County were sold? How many people paid to see that POS Romeo and Juliet knockoff called Titanic. Sales does not equal artistic merit. That said, art, like crap, is frequently in the eye of the beholder. JMNSHO.

2112 rocks dude-if you're so caught up with its origins and similarities to other things-you are missing the point.

As far as sales-this was Rush' break through album and has been a huge musical influence on other bands.

There we disagree. You think it "rocks", as do others. I've heard it, and other Rush albums. I think I'd rather listen to recxjake hold forth for several hours on the virtues of GM Homerism than subject myself to another Rush album.

"Anthem" was a really nicely done little novella. I think it went a little soft in the end but still a solid piece of work. I'm surprised a band would base an album on it. "Revolt In 2100" isn't one of my favorite RAH books, although I did enjoy it. I had to go to google to remember reading it. I guess the two books are aligned in a sense. RAH shows the folly of collectivism based on a theocratic society with a leader granted power by God and Rand was showing the harm that collectivism does to an individual when carried to it's logical extreme regardless of the current political climate. When you mentioned similar plotlines I mistakenly thought that this was an alternate name for "Fifth Column" which didn't make sense to me at all.
