4 stars I cannot give this record a 5 star rating because is live, but actually is the most important live record from RUSH. First, with this record, they finished the first 15 year journey, getting ready for the next decade and the next step (and the new record label). Second, the first conformation and conception of the drum solo as an orchestrated piece by itself, a marvellous impact in the music ground. The record shows a true farewell to the past leaving a very good mouth taste. Is obvious that they needed this moment and they did it outstandingly, anthems like "closer to the heart", "marathon" and "manhattan project" sound better than before, filling our hearts and minds; after all, a great band needs to do great closures and a "show of hands" as they call it, is the truth that they don't owe nothing to nobody, excpet for the fans.
