5 stars Much has already been written about the albums within this set - "Signals", "Grace Under Pressure", "Power Windows", "Hold Your Fire" and "A Show Of Hands". All I can say is that this is an exceptionally well done job on the remastering. Specifically speaking, "Hold Your Fire" (one of my favourite Rush albums) has been given its proper due for a remaster. Also, "Countdown" from the album Signals is crystal clear, especially the sampling from Nasa's space programme. Grace Under Pressure doesn't sound quite so cold considering all the keyboards that were used (it's all well balanced here). For remastered Rush, this is likely the last stop you'll ever make. Superb and highly recommended for fans of '80s Rush. Last but not least, Rush's most atmospheric album for the keys - "Power Windows" is simply breathtaking. Wait 'til you hear "Territories". Better people, better food and better beer (that pretty much sums up Rush and this great box set). Signals comes with a 5.1 version on DVD (and I mean "version" because it's slightly different on the mixes used for the 5.1). Wow! Thank you Geddy, Alex & Neil.

5 stars don't buy this - wait till it's re-released with the bugs fixed! (SEE RUSH WEBSITE an reviews on the online sales site known as amaz**)

even after the bugs get fixed ....even then - it's mastered WAY too high with reduced dynamic range, compression, clipping, etc

ALSO,the sector 3 box appears to have used alternate versions of the songs on the Hold Your Fire remaster!

I fail to see how the other reviewer(S) missed this.



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
