4 stars Well I like this album a lot. Its great, all the songs are just as good as their studio counterparts. I find this is a great album to put on at night when going to sleep, as it is almost exclusively synth era Rush, and it is not too heavy, nice and ambient in parts, also very uplifting for the most part. Also, I got this before I got Hold Your FIre and Power Windows (still don't have that one).

Well anyway, this is pretty much a greatest hits, but its better because all the songs are different. Highlights are: The Big Money, Subdivisions, Marathon, Mystic Rhythms, Witch Hunt, Force Ten and Closer to the Heart. All the songs are good really, except the rhythm method, which is a boring drum solo. Interesting for one listen, boring after that.

So this would be a good album to get as an introduction to synth era Rush, although Signals is grossly underrated and one of my fav synth-Rush songs, The Enemy Within is not on it. But anyway I lvoe this album, but as it is a live album, aka pseudo Greatest Hits, it is not essential, but an excellent addition to any collection, especially rush fans.
