4 stars Rush, in my opinion, is best on a live album than on a studio album. This one proves my point. The song selection is great, choosing timeless classics such as "Spirit of Radio" and "Tom Sawyer". Another great thing about this album is the addition of some of the more proggy tracks like "Jacob's Ladder", "La Villa Strangiato", and "Xanadu".
It is interesting to see "Beneath, Between, and Behind" which is an older track, it being on Fly By Night (Rush's second studio album). Alex gets some classical guitar work in with "Closer To The Heart" and "The Trees".
This albums ends on a great song, "La Villa Strangiato" possibly my favorite instrumental from Rush. An interesting fact is that Rush playd 2 instrumental tracks on this album. Doesn't matter that much as they are both excellent, especially "YYZ" with Neil Peart's amazing drum solo.

All in all a great live album with only strong tracks from this great Canadian trio. 4/5 stars.
