4 stars For me, Exit... Stage Left was the best of the Rush live albums and this is chiefly due to the fine selection of material from Rush's most progressive studio albums from A Farewell to Kings to Moving Pictures. I admit it may have some technical difficulties in that Lee's bass sometimes overpowers Lifeson's guitar work, but I only find this to be a minor distraction.

You can't go wrong with this selection of songs, although I really would have loved it if this had originally been released as a 3-LP set including the two parts of Cygnus X-1. 3-LP sets were (as far as I can tell) quite rare in the 1980s and that's too bad because it could have Rush's answer to Yessongs.

A must-have for every Rush fan and a highly recommended addition for all other prog rock listeners. Well worth seeking out and easily worth four stars.
