3 stars This will be too big dose of Rush for anyone but hard Rush fans. It is three disc edition and can go boring a bit. Songs are from different phases of Rush music, but they are here played in same production style, so in the moment it gets hard to distinguish songs that are much different on albums. Guitarist plays somehow grungy here, and his sound is somehow to tiny for massive Peart's druming. Bass is also very loud, and it gets irritating to me, as in a moment I figure out that these guys really have a need to prove their technical power all the time. There are many songs from newer albums, that do everything but impress me. Old classics stil sound good, but some newer songs spoil a lot (especially voice and beat samples in Roll the Bones), which are somehow unpleasant to me.

I actually never liked live releases that contain so many songs, it seems like they play their whole catalog. Some songs in here really rock, might be that Rush are even more hard rock band, and Gedy's voice is excellent too.

Good listenings, but not for recomand to everyone as an essential prog live record.
