4 stars I bought the remastered version in Vancouver because in Holland the prices are twice as high so I earned a bit back from a rather expensive holiday in Canada! But back to the music, this is the first genuine progressive rock album from Rush although from "Caress of steel" Rush turned out to be an interesting heavy progressive rock band. In the titletrack all members prooved their instrumental and compositional skills, what a mindblowing breaks and soli, especially Ale Lifeson his effect-pedal drenched guitarwork is excellent! Another remarkable song is "Tears" because of the use of the Mellotron, it fits perfect to the music but unfortunately for me it appeared to be the last time Rush used this wonderful instrument. The next album "A farewell to kings" became a milestone and presented Rush as a pivotal progrock band. But "2112", especially the titletrack, remains a very good 'heavy progressive' album, so unique for that era. GREAT!!
