4 stars A good live album with a big fat sound from the guitar of Alex Lifeson and at this point All The World's A Stage is a good show case of where Rush were at. After this they would change their style and approach or maybe the couple of years between studio albums allowed them to look at what they had achieved and allow to mature their songwriting by the time time it came to doing A Farewell To Kings in. The seventies were a period in time where many rocks acts put out live albums that would become legendary, though this has never really been up there with many of the so called classics I feel it deserves to be. It is a solid live album with top notch performances and the sound is pretty powerful, Geddy Lee sounds exceptionally well on vocals on this live album and Neil,Peart is as consistent as ever, seeping out raw energy on every track. "Bastille Day" sounds so much more superior to the album version while "Lakeside Park and "What your Doing" also have more of an edge, good album that gets a few spins on my turn table regularly enough.
