music and books

"what can this strange device be? when I touch it, it gives forth a sound
it has wires that vibrate and give music, what can this strange thing be that I found?"

Being the fan I was back in the day I read into Rush and what the epic tunes were about. This excerpt from '2112- the discovery' of course is describing a guitar. In the credits on the 'album' you will see credit to "genius of Ayn Rand". Referring to the Novel 'Anthem'.  I did read the novel, and it received high points in my opinion. If you listen to the song the lyrics will tell you the story. I would recommend this book to any with interest in what a socialist world might be like.
