4 stars With the live account of their synth period you would think the production of this one would be very processed and 80s but that's not the case. This sounds more live than Stage Left and is superior in sound. The song selection is pretty good with no songs going back 1977 but my only problem is that most of the songs were recorded separate from each other so this album does kinda sound a little disjointed. I will say this, this album helped me get into Power Windows(my least appreciated Rush album for a while). Overall, not a bad live album but still not great. 4 and a half stars. Highlights: The Big Money, Subdivisions, Marathon, Turn the Page, Manhattan Project, Distant Early Warning, Mystic Rhythms, Witch Hunt, The Rhythm Method, and Closer to the Heart
