2112The winners of the 2018 Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize were announced yesterday and Rush's 2112 was one of the eight Canadian albums to make the final cut. Ten albums were selected from each of the time periods between 1960-1975, 1976-1985, 1986-1995, and 1996-2005. Two of these albums were then selected as the prize winners from each of the four time periods; one by a public fan vote, and the other selected by a jury of music critics, journalists, broadcasters and programmers. 2112 won the fan vote for the 1976-1985 time period. Rush's Moving Pictures won the fan vote prize in the same category back in 2016. For a complete list of the 2018 winners visit the Polaris Heritage Prize website here (thanks RushFanForever).
