Full screen with a good stereo audio setup a must.
This is how you do a 20 minute dystopian prog epic lyric video / cartoon feature video. This is a must watch! Genius song, genius story, genius illustrations and a genius editing job culminating in a convergence of all medias into one awe-inspiring experience.
I have been enjoying this Randian song for nearly 40 years and I have never been treated to such a visual and sonic joy as this video delivers. The story literally comes to life one scene at a time. The plot I had imagined for the song virtually identical to this treatment. Either I am in a mind meld with Mr. Peart or the lyrics are that beautifully crafted to convey the visual message. I tend to think the latter is more the truth.
When the trio returns to “Assume Control” at the end my soul was cheering and my heart was swelling. I was reliving the entire story and totally engrossed in the experience.
I will watch this video many more times in the near future. Guaranteed. Well done and Happy 40th to 2112! A true masterpiece whether the masses realize it or not. Someday they will…. oh someday they will…
