4 stars This stunning live represented the conclusion of their "progressive phase", concerning the present legendary Canadian Band, resumed in fine albums like "Farewell to Kings" ("Xanadu" is magically performed here), "Hemisphere" (listen to the present live version of "La Villa Strangiato") and partially abandoned inside the 80's album "Permanent Waves" (however a couple of progressive tracks within this latter are well represented by "Jacob's Ladder" and "Freewill"), which is a great testament for Rush!!

I don't get crazy for the drum solo by Peart here, despite of recognizing his grandeur (even though usually I prefer the approach of drummers such as for instance Terry Bozzio) and the choice of one track only-"Beneath, Between and Behind", very short , taken from the past, let me be a bit perplex...but anyway all the other songs -including "The trees"- are very well performed!! The harmonic solutions gain such a splendour in their synchronized live execution and I think that's enough!!
