"We have assumed control"
Tonight we continue our exploration of a famous musical album and the two stories behind it...
2112 is concept album by the band RUSH released in 1976 that uses music to tell a dystopian story set in the year 2112...
In the year 2062, a galaxy-wide war results in the union of all planets under the rule of the Red Star of the Solar Federation. By 2112, the world is controlled by the "Priests of the Temples of Syrinx", who determine the content of every facet of life. Then a man discovers a guitar and learns to play different kind of music.
The album is loosely based on the novella 'Anthem' by Ayn Rand that takes place at an unspecified future date when mankind has entered another Dark Age. Technological advancement is now carefully planned and the concept of individuality has been eliminated. A young man known as Equality 7-2521 rebels by doing secret scientific research. When his activity is discovered, he flees into the wilderness with the girl he loves.
[And as a bonus for any Ready Player One fans, when Parzival plays the song Discovery from this album it leads to a hidden message essential to unlocking the third gate after finding the Crystal Key.]
