3 stars What can I really write about this offering ?

It is now starting to be pretty pointless reviewing the mountain of live and compilation albums Rush is releasing. Not to mention; buying their releases. That makes me a fanboy and a serious one too.

Yes, Rush have a point when they release an album like this. A good point indeed. I have seen countless bootlegs from this tour. The internet is here, but the bootleggers are not dead. They were around in the analog age and they are still around in the digital age. And they would had made some serious money if this double live album had not been released. Bootlegs are the real rip offs here. Not the band.

When it comes to the two discs itself....... Well, it is obvious that this live album has been doctored in the studio. The bass is too much in the front of the mix to be taken from the live tape. The vocals seems tired and forced. The music and the tracklist is good though and it cannot be faulted. But does we really need this live album ? I prefer it to the bootlegs and it is with resignation and a sigh that I give it three stars.
