4 stars If Alex Liefson decided to take control of Rush, that's what it would sound! With only one album, the band release a DVD consisting of songs from their Sonar album and 2 new songs. The work of Alex Liefson has help to create that Rush's sound. The use of 12 strings guitar and the sound of many of the songs take you back to the song "Xanadu". The first song of the set "Dive" is the darkest and heaviest song of the show. The music is instrumental with with one exception for the song "Belmonte" sing by Paul Reid, and there's no keys here. The guitar player David Barrett use the steel guitar to this guitar dominated music. "A Whisper to Thunder" has some nice build up and is another standout track. "The Great Eastern Sun" has a lot of Alex's arrangements and has a nice ending. The last song "The Elegant Universe" that will be out on the next album is a perfect ending to this concert. There is some nice visuals to this performance with lasers and a very good audio mix that let's you hear clearly the bass and drums. Ironically the sound of each instrument is better captured that on the latest Rush's release "Clockwork Angels".
