2 stars Tape salad. The stage just before the tape in the cassette is giving up the ghost and gives you a tape salad is what this album reminds me about. I did not expect to get a tape salad from a CD though. But I am starting to wonder what's next from my CD player now.

The reason for my worries is Geddy's vocals. Or has Cher taken over as the new vocalist in Rush ? Geddy's vocals is just utterly horrible in the respect that they are mostly atonal and as stressed out as a Lehman Brothers banker the hours before bank went bust. This is not Geddy Lee as he should be remembered. I think it is obscene, sadistic and absurd to release this live album at all. Also taken into account that some of the songs had to be changed to suit Geddy's extreme limited vocal ranges during this or these gigs. The overall sound is not that good either. The songs are OK. But it is very sad to witness these amended songs. The show must go on. But do not record it and put it out as this piece of junk.

I cannot bring myself to give it one star due to being a Rush fan. But frankly....... Well, a weak 2 star from a big fan of Rush and a get well soon card to Geddy Lee has been awarded to this sadistic, obscene and absurd double album.

2 stars
