3 stars It's about time.

As just about every review of this album has said - here we have another live release from Rush. Recorded at a two day festival in Rotterdam, the album is, as the title suggests, in support of the band's latest studio album, Snakes & Arrows. Nine of the thirteen tracks of the album appear on this live release, as well, with an obvious emphasis on the material. Most of the greats in the Rush catalog appear on the release, such as Limelight, Freewill, The Spirit of Radio and other timeless Rush hits, as well as ones not seen on every Rush live release, such as Passage to Bangkok. The production is crisp and the performance is spot on, but, as I implied before, it really is a non-essential release. Although the new live material is great, including a new Peart drum solo attached to the fantastic Malignant Narcissism, the remaining 18 tracks are really much of the same. It's not a bad live album to start off with, seeing as it covers a lot of Rush's history (of course they always cut off the classic prog period for the most part), but is not a needed addition to a seasoned Rush collection. 3+ stars.
