4 stars This is a very strong, consistent, and possibly the band's most professional live album ("Rush in Rio" being their most exciting). It showcases some truly amazing playing from all members and songs from across most of their career (with the inclusion of the bonus 3rd disc). They sound tight, cohesive, and very much in the zone.

In a live setting, one can really hear how awesome Rush's sound really is; their playing is just colossal, and perhaps more likely to attract fans than the sometimes over-produced sound of their studio albums. Standouts include "Dreamline", the extended version of "Closer to the Heart", the most amazing recorded version of "2112" (in its entirety!) and the always excellent "YYZ".

Expect to be amazed and energized!
