Background: Released in 1976, 2112 was the fourth LP by Rush, and their first LP to crack the U.S. top 100 on the album charts. gave 2112 a 4 1/2 star review:

Whereas Rush’s first two releases, their self-titled debut and Fly by Night, helped create a buzz among hard rock fans worldwide, the more progressive third release, Caress of Steel, confused many of their supporters. Rush knew it was now or never with their fourth release, and they delivered just in time — 1976’s 2112 proved to be their much sought-after commercial breakthrough and remains one of their most popular albums….2112 is widely considered by Rush fans as their first true “classic” album, the first in a string of similarly high-quality albums.
