5 stars "All The World's A Stage" is without question, one of the greatest live album ever! It is everything a live album should be...raw, energetic, exciting and live! The versions of songs like "Anthem", "Something For Nothing" and "Bastile Day" in particualr, blow away the studio versions hands down. Great playing + great recording and production that accentuates the recording and doesn't bury it in either audience noise or overdubs. I saw them on this tour and it still ranks as one of the best show I have ever seen. They are one of the few bands that still just goes out there and does it with just added players. God bless 'em for that. Unlike other live albums they later released, this one captures all the excitement and energy in tact. This is when they were at their peak, post "2112" and pre sounding like The Police. I still have a soft spot in my heart for these guys, and in fact, their new ep of cover songs is killer! Sounds more like the first album than it does "Vapor Trails"...and that's a good thing.
