4 stars This one plays like Rush performing their greatest hits album live. This has every essential track from their second chapter, all performed beautifully, and in the case of some songs, like "La Villa Strangiato", "Spirit Of Radio" and "The Trees" complete with an extended acoustic intro, stand as the definitive versions.

The band plays tight and Geddy's voice is infused with an energy not present on the studio albums making for a great improvement. However, the album sounds too polished and misses that feel and raw energy of that live environment. Instead it sounds like another studio album. Also the improvisation present on "All The World's A Stage" is gone and instead we have direct recreations of the originals.

A few flaws that nag me when I listen to it, but overall the album is a must have for any Rush fan, and a great introduction to the band for anyone.
