3 stars This was an album my Dad listened to a lot, and I heard it quite a bit. The title song "2112" is the only thing truly worth listening to on it. That song is a true 5 star effort as it portrays a futuristic despotic world where everything is controlled and individuality is a thing of the past. It is heavily based on Ayn Rand's book "Anthem." The instrumentation and lyrics are good, although it tends to drop off towards the end of the epic somewhat, only to be thrown back upwards with the Grand Finale.

Unfortunately, the other songs are what drag it down. They are mediocre at best, with "The Twilight Zone" and "Road to Bangkok" being the only things worth even considering. In spite of this, it is a good gateway album to prog rock, almost as good as "Dark Side of the Moon."
