Review by Nightfly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Rock Progressivo Italiano Team
4 stars This 3 DVD Snakes and Arrows live set is the companion piece to the cd of the same name released earlier in 2008 containing exactly the same set though with the addition of some bonus features. It was filmed in Rotterdam in October 2007 with additional footage on the third disc from Atlanta.

There's been a few raised eyebrows of late over the amount of live material Rush have released over recent years but there's no denying the quality of this DVD set. The picture and filming quality is as good as it gets getting you close to the band from every conceivable angle including some excellent overhead shots of Neil Peart behind his enormous drum kit. The sound is also very good on a set weighing heavily towards their latest studio album, Snakes and Arrows. In fact as much as I enjoyed this album I would have preferred not quite so much material from it being featured on the last tour which would have left room for a more balanced set. Nevertheless, there's still room for some classic oldies. Very welcome are some less obvious old classics like Circumstances, Entre Nous, Witch Hunt and A Passage to Bangkok as well as the more predictable choices of Tom Sawyer, Freewill and The Spirit of Radio, though all excellent versions.

The first 2 discs being taken up by the Rotterdam performance, disc 3 is titled Oh Atlanta, the Authorised Bootleg and actually contains some of my favourite moments of the set in great versions of the 2112 Overture, The Temples of Syrinx and The Trees.

The first disc contains a number of extras in a few alternative versions of tracks focussing more on the live rear screen visuals used by the band, the What's That Smell alternative show intro movie and some pointless outtakes of this and strangely, one track from the R30 tour, Red Sector A.

Having already enjoyed the cd version of this, the DVD is even better and if you haven't already overdosed on live Rush then it's well worth adding to your collection though if you're debating on which of the more recently released Rush DVD's to buy I'd recommend R30 to this one, not least because of the host of extras it contains.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
4 stars This 3 CD package is a great concert experience that I will return to often. Everything works - from the excellent sound quality to the crystal clear picture. The stage itself is massive and there are incredible lighting effects, lasers and fire effects. The 3 split screens at times show each band member, and sometimes a visual effect to enhance the track being played. There are weird Rush-ian gimmicks, namely the 3 huge ovens full of rotating chickens that glow ominous red throughout the night. There is no reference to these except Lee says at the end of CD1 that they are no longer spring chickens so they need to take a break. At one point a weird chef appears to turn the chickens over. Similar in fact to the washing machines with rotating clothes in the 'Live in Rio' show. Other subtler things are on stage such as flanks of flowers around microphones, plastic dinosaurs around Lifeson's stacks and the piece de resistance is the miniature Stonehenge rock on Lee's keyboards - a nod in Spinal Tap's direction for sure. We see crowd shots and Lee takes home movies of them screaming Hello Canada - in fact we see many versions of him doing this from other shows.

Peart is featured with a sizzling drum solo that is well above what normally occurs in solos. He uses gamelon style blocks and sound effect drums to enhance the solo and his kit rotates to add depth. I love when the jazz band kicks in and he plays full blown jazz metrical patterns - there is a standing ovation after this.

There are no lengthy lead solo sections where Lifeson plays by himself but there is a nice acoustic piece following the drum solo. Lifeson effortlessly plays al the songs with precision and finesse. Surely one of the greatest guitarists in the world.

Lee's vocals are excellent and as clear as ever. His bass pounds on every track. I noted its all mostly hard rock on this live show. The band play old favourites that every Rush fan adores such as 'Spirit of Radio' and 'Tom Sawyer' but they focus on 'Snakes and Arrows' album, virtually playing every song. This could have been problematic but I find these live versions even better than the studio versions. I was never a huge fan of S&A but this live concert really brings something special to these tracks. I like the film clips that break up the songs such as South Park's Cartman singing Tom Sawyer and the weird clips of babies in prams and a game of snakes and ladders.

The bonus features are fun, such as watching the clips without the band shots and the making of the clips which show Rush at their kookiest. Some of the extra live tracks are great too so overall this is a must see for any Rush fan. I recommend this as well as 'Live IN Rio' which are completely different experiences. This is not as good as 'Rio' due to the set list, but it is still a fantastic DVD package.

3 stars I believe that any living person wants to talk (or play) about their latest conquests than on their past victories. Hence the urge of playing tracks of your last album alive and dropping some old stuff (I'm not considering market reasons on purpose). S & A is a good album? Yes. It is a great Rush ... (read more)

4 stars I've been a Rush fan for many years now, but had never got round to buying a Rush live DVD. Then I saw this in a liquidation sale and decided to take the plunge. I was not disappointed!

3 stars There are two ways for analyzing this DVD set. First, the overall quality of it. Musically, visually, tecnically fabulous. Really impossible to ignore how perfeccionist Rush and their crew are, and how successful they are in achieving their pretensions of perfection. Pure enjoyment. The set i ... (read more)

4 stars The next in the long list of Rush DVD's released in the past 5 years (not a bad thing at all), Snakes and Arrows Live looks nearly identical to R30, however this really rises above the other release as it contains the full show (plus). It not only contains the entire show of the first run, but a ... (read more)
