3 stars This was actually the first album I ever got by Rush. I believe I got it for my birthday, and dismissed it because it was a live album, and back then I thought live = horrible. Man was I wrong! It gives a good spectrum of Rush through the years (up until when it was recorded, of course) and it was a very good introduction to Rush. My favourites here are Subdivisions, The Rhythm Method, Time Stand Still and Closer To The Heart. All very good tracks when played live, but the rest of the songs are quite good too. The booklet has some pictures from the concerts, which is an added bonus as well. Overall a good live album, and I would suggest it to anyone who likes live albums, loves Rush, or who is just getting started on Rush and is looking to get a broader spectrum than a single album would give.
