4 stars This is an excellent addition to any heavy prog rock music collection. There are some really good classics on this album, and there are some things that I do not enjoy on this one. The overall sound quality, though, is very good. It sounds much better than All the Worlds a Stage and Exit...Stage Left because the technology is growing considerably. Geddy Lee's vocals are smooth sounding on this one, and are very forceful when listening closely. The guitar has a chorus on it, and sounds very good, though not distorted too much in this show, thanks to Rush's own Alex Lifeson. Neil Peart plays drums like no other, he is the best of the best. The performance overall seems a little tired, thats probably the only thing that I don't like about this album, but the song selection is great. This is an excellent heavy prog album.
