2112 has been newly-remastered on heavyweight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process, all from original analogue masters. RUSH's fourth album, 2112, first released in 1976, proved a breakthrough, highlighted by its seven-part title suite - written by Lee and Lifeson, with lyrics by Peart - recounting a dystopian story set in the year 2112. It came in at #2 on Rolling Stone's list of 'Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time.' Most Rush fans consider it the band's definitive recording and it has sold over 3 million albums in the U.S., going triple-platinum. This unique reissue showcases a custom, limited-edition, hand-etched hologram of the 'Red Star of the Federation' pressed 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.

First, it is a full DVD Audio disc, capable of 24/96 high resolution stereo and 5.1 audio - as well as the normal DVD stereo/surround stuff (Dolby Digital).
Second, the animation for the DVD part of the disc changes with the lyrics - where as it doesn't on the DVD-A part, necessitating manual advance of the slides (I presume this is a limitation of the DVD-A format). My Pioneer DV-575A universal player won't let me access the DVD Video part of the disc - forcing me to the DVD-A part - meaning I have to play the DVD Video part on my computer/PS3 to access the fully animated stuff.
Third, the whole of the album has animation, not just 2112. This is a real treat, and much more than I expected.
To sum up; very pleased with the disc, and maybe I should have bought the Blu-ray after all, but then again my Blu-ray player is not wired up for surround where as my Pioneer is (for its DVD-A and SACD capabilities), and I can't afford a new surround audio setup... Either way, the waterfall effect on 2112 is nicely placed in the rear speakers, and frees the fronts for the song. Good stuff.
The dvd also includes an excellent interview with Alex Lifeson. Highly recommended!
