Being a Rushphile since 'lo the Fly By Night tour here in
Houston, I'd love to hear everyone's opinion on the
"proper" name of the album, it correctly "originally" being
titled TOWARDS 2112, I'll pull the stick out now so that
my first post doesn't offend many....

Hiya, Towards2112. It seems we've been fans for about the same amount of time.
I didn't know that 2112 had a different title originally. Personally, I think 2112 fits a bit better on a t-shirt

Never heard that before and 2112 is my all time favorite Rush album.


Without being a colossal prick to you or your post, you got proof on that?

Welcome, Towards 2112!

I, too, am nosey as to where you got this information.

It is my opinion that the simpler title works better, has more power.
