While somewhat disappointing, the video is your basic LPCM 2.0 Stereo, but is still very good. Again some of the older stuff is not as good of quality but the new stuff is crystal clear with some punch. The supplemental materials consist of a lot of segments that fill in with more insight and information on the band, their music, and the albums. This consists of almost an hour of additional video.
What makes Rush: 2112 & Moving Pictures – Classic Albums work is the way it is laid out. You have some segments of older video from the days when these albums were on the charts. Then you have segments where the band members are showing how the songs were played and how each of the parts worked together. What I also liked is that they would show how when Geddy Lee was maintaining the rhythm section while Alex Lifeson would take the lead, then later in the song Lifeson would provide the rhythm and Lee or Peart would take over the song. It was interesting to see how three people could make such filling music.
They also analyzed a lot of other aspects of the albums, including how they came up with songs, how the fact that the drummer wrote all of the lyrics and how that affected his ability to come up with his stylizations on the drum parts, and how the other members would come up with the music. It was all very interesting.
I found Rush: 2112 & Moving Pictures – Classic Albums, to be a very enjoyable viewing both from the quality of the production and from the point of putting together an interesting, educational, and entertaining video.
