of the best

many would call this the start of Rush and the Epic rock they have made a signature of the band. Actually the Epic rock dates back to their second album called Fly by Night, Bytor and the Snow Dog is a good example of Epic rock
It would be worth mentioning the drummer Neil Peart joined the band after the first album had been made. Neil is teh one that writes most of the lyrics. If you care to do some reading, the song 2112 is based on the story line in the novel by Ayn Rand "Anthem" It is a short read (for a novel) and is very interesting. Might help to have a copy of 2112 in vinyl as there is more writing in the album jacket than just the lyrics.
