I own most of the Rush vinyl already, I just bought this for the cool hologram factor and all the good reviews on this recording. Listening to it today I realized now I have to get all the others in this remastered series. This sounds absolutely incredible.

Not sure if this is just a problem with my copy, but there is a locked groove in the middle of Something For Nothing unfortunately. just keeps playing "WOOOAAAH YOU CANT HAVE" over and over lolol. Other than that, this pressing sounds top notch.

Got this one just before going to Montreal to see Rush on their R40 tour in June 2015. Having not heard this album in its entirety before, I was totally sold on the mesmerizing star hologram from the moment this reissue was first announced, so I jumped on the chance - and hey, what could a "true Rush fan" ever be if they haven't listened to 2112 before?

The album, of course, is brilliant, the star hologram is perfectly hypnotic, and the DMM cutting by Sean Magee has almost all of the right ingredients for a great vinyl remaster - it's nice and detailed with a spacious soundstage and a crystalline upper end...but there's just one problem I have with it: the EQ places just a bit too much emphasis on the bright end for my tastes.

I mean, every other aspect of the mastering is perfectly in balance, and the acoustic guitars found on some of the tracks on side 2 (particularly on "Lessons", one of my favourites here) retain their beautiful, melodic qualities with a pleasing degree of sparkle.... but perhaps Sean went a bit too far by making everything else sound overly sparkly. It definitely takes away from what is otherwise a very good remaster by kind of offsetting the "meatiness" that defines the sound of a band like Rush. I don't own any other pressings to compare, but I'm sure that an original GK cut (or even a late 70's Anthem pressing) wouldn't have this same problem.

Also, side 1 is pressed rather off-center on my copy, which is a bit ironic when you take into consideration that QRP is basically trying HARDER than anybody else to win the game of "who's the world's best pressing plant?" That's only a petty gripe, though, because it's nice that UMG decided to use a more audiophile-grade pressing plant as opposed to United for a change - the noise floor is very, very low, and the high quality MoFi-style inner sleeve is a fantastic addition.

This is a very high quality reissue, especially the tracks on the B side. Very clear and excellent separation. In order to view the hologram you must flash a light on B side while it is spinning. Note that B side has locking grooves at the end of the song so the return feature of most turntables becomes non-functional. All in all one of the best analogue remasters in my collection.

Sorry to say, but not very happy with this press. My US press from 1979 sounds much better.

I have this same release - all "identifying information" matches, but no hologram.
