4 stars While "Caress of steel" epics were a wrong move, they sure have paved the way for new things to come? Among those things we have the monster epic 2112. This sci - fi piece de resistance is one of the cornerstones of progressive rock and with good reason , among it's 20 minutes it's musically flawless: the overture rocks hard , the ending is superb and the rest of the song features high peaks of emotion.

While musically flawless , the same cannot be said about the lyrics since they sound a bit lame to my ears , but that does not keep me from listening to this song. Now to side 2? it's not THAT bad actually! featuring an acoustic ballad "Tears" a pop song "Lessons" and 3 hard rock tunes that deliver.

Summing up , the first proper Rush album having an amazing title track and solid tunes on side 2. Not a masterpiece but still a very good album. 3.5 stars
