If you’re reading this, chances are you’re still alive. It’s not like it’s the end of the world or anything. Silly Mayans. Today, in addition to being the first day of winter, is also the 21st day of 2012. You know what that means, right? Yes, it’s time to revisit Rush’s 1976 album with its title track based on Ayn Rand. This is the band at their proggiest, with the title track running 20 minutes long, yet somehow it was the band’s commercial breakthrough.
Just in time for the holidays/apocalypse/their entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rush have reissued the album in a two-disc version that contains the album, with bonus live tracks, both in CD and DVD/Blu-Ray 5.1 surround sound. It’s a perfect gift for the prog geek or I Love You Man fan in your life. But check out the whole album after the jump.
