4 stars A message from the Rush Website:

We are aware of some slight technical issues surrounding the CD of 'Fly By Night' inside the Sector 1 box set release and the DVD for 'A Farewell To Kings' inside the Sector 2 box set that some fans are experiencing. It stems from a production flaw and it is currently being addressed. As soon as production is completed a formal announcement of how to replace the discs will follow shortly. Please be aware that there may be a time delay in shipping and receiving the disc and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience ? Geddy, Alex & Neil

(Gooner review): Yes, the CD of_Fly By Night_ is reprehensible; Rush states it's a production issue and plan to make good on it by replacing the CD. Believe it. These guys are a class act.

Much has already been written about the albums herein; so I'll save the reader the pain of reading a review for each individual album. I will say that the CDs sound exceptional with the remasters, not too loud and not overly compressed. The DVD 5.1 of "Fly By Night" is worth the price of the box alone, especially for the drum sound. The very first Rush album is a drastic improvement from the the first remaster in the '90s.

I can't give this box set more than a 4 star rating due to the _Fly By Night_ CD. That might change once I get the replacement. Again, on all of the CDs, the more progressive tracks such as "By-Tor & The Snow Dog" and "The Necromancer" from _Caress Of Steel_ are the most noticeable as is the same with the other CDs in Sectors 2 & 3. Recommended.

Gooner | 4/5 |
