3 stars This live album didn't impress me as much as their previous live "Exit...Stage Left", but it's a nice collection of their 80's songs and a fair document of the band's live show from the late 80's. What made me disappointed was the style how Geddy maneuvered between his bass guitar and keyboards. Some parts which had both of them on the studio album, are now played merely with the synthesizers, and the result isn't very satisfying as the sound gets flat. The album opening with funny intro and "Big Money" is still a very powerful performance of a good song from a poor studio album.
