2 stars Another live album by the band, which seemed unfatigable in the 80's.

Honestly, this goes in the 'maybe' pile. Most of the stuff is from the Hold Your Fire album and Power Windows era, which is the most forgottable period of all. Die-hard fans could get it, but the common man should not start here to appreciate Rush. The VHS show was pretty awesome, but the fact of just seeing them is enough.

The setlist is kinda lame, compared to the super ones we got in the last years. We could forget lame-o songs like Big Money, Marathon or Mission. Too bad the Subdivisions version on this one is sooo far away from the original (which kicks butt), and we don't need another forgettable version of Closer to the Heart!

Pretty much for fans, but don't miss the show of the same name. Lots of humor!
