Something For Nothing is sooo good; One of their best closing tracks.

Fantastic work! I dont see it as an album at all, rather as a journey. The title tracks shows 20 minutes pure perfection and the other 5 songs arent bad either:) Prog Rock at its finest

This album is awesome! The title track is epic, and the other songs are great too (Twilight Zone is especially a highlight)!

A passage to Bangkok is quite boring comparing to the other songs.

I think it's a very enjoyable song, personally.

Let down a bit by some mediocre stuff on the 2nd side...

First gig was Manowar (loincloths 'n' all), Bristol Colston Hall in March 1983, on the 'Hail to England' tour. Tickets were £3.75, 300 in the audience, Mercyful Fate never showed, but my hearing still got seriously trashed..

I've lost count how many times I've listened to the title track, can't believe it's 20+ minutes long, time flies by listening to it, it has such an incredible energy, perfect from start to finish. I often forget about the rest of the album, which isn't that bad at all. Passage to Bangkok is a bit cheesy tho.

"2112" and "Something for Nothing" are amazing. The other songs aren't bad, but I think they'd be better if they were done like Rush's 80s material, when they were better with the shorter songs.

It has always been for the title track being so dominant on this album, as well qualitywise as by its mere length, that I found the album a tad imbalanced, which is why it ranks behind Moving Pictures and Hemispheres in my list of favourite Rush albums.
Then again, the title track alone probably makes the album a classic.

Rather enjoyable album throughout -- "Tears" is skippable, though. Neither A Passage To Bangkok, The Twilight Zone, Lessons nor Something For Nothing are my favorite RUsh songs, but they're pretty good nevertheless. 2112 is easily the most impressive song written on the album, and at this point of time, the only song that I could see myself listening often to.

The title song is one of my personal favourite songs of all time, I thought the rest of the album was quite enjoyable, but like you said I often skip Tears too.
