4 stars Oh yeah, prog & rock on. This is something that can always please my ears. Sidenote: There are snakes and arrows on cover, but there is not eponymous song. Darn. So, what to say about this album. It's my first live by Rush, so this is positive (for me), but their studio albums I appreciate and like a lot, so I can say that they brings good songs here.

However, the sound quality is bad. Too much crowd noise & chanting. Not that I hate it, but I would rather be without it. It's part of atmosphere and this must have been helluva (hehe) concert, but for home listening, it's annoying, as one can't get clear sound. And Geddy's voice sometimes fails higher tones. I know, 56 years, he's doing wonderful job with these vocals, but it seems that some songs were composed for his younger self, when he was more capable.

4(-), because in overall, it's quite good album. It still is, don't worry. Musicianship is perfect and songs are played (mostly) as we're used to.
