3 stars I believe that any living person wants to talk (or play) about their latest conquests than on their past victories. Hence the urge of playing tracks of your last album alive and dropping some old stuff (I'm not considering market reasons on purpose). S & A is a good album? Yes. It is a great Rush album? I believe the answer is "no". VT is far more exciting and its tour didn't put so many songs from it on the set list as S & A. Maybe the guys were excited on their triumphant return and really believed in thier last album, but only Far Cry and the instrumental The Main Monkey business (on a lower degree than the onther track) really get me impressed. It's a good album to listen, sure, but why not continue with the R30 experience and throwing some light on old gems long forgotten? I know that Geddy's voice now is a concern that have to be considered when making a set list but I'm really pissed off with their total focus on S & A. This DVD is a good acquisition but unfortunately the album of this tour is presented in an unbalanced way. Rush in Rio's far better even with its exquisite sound, thanks to the Brazilian crowd. R30 is the best of the three even if it doesn't show the full concert. 3 stars.
