1 stars It's wonderful to see a new album by Rush before the onslaught when the brand new album arrives later this year with new material, but why release a compilation like this? Who is the target audience... New Rush fans, if any exist? Surely they would be better advised to grab hold of 2 CD packages that sowcase more material such as "Rush Gold" or "Chronicle" but this is a condensed Rush comp with absolutely nothing new to offer.

Admittedly there are a lot of great songs that all Rushaholics love such as The Spirit of Radio,Tom Sawyer, Freewill, Limelight, By-Tor and the Snowdog, The Trees and Closer to the Heart. All are classics and well known as stage performance favourites and quitessential legendary Rush. Once again though any Rush fan would have these so the album is rendered obsolete.

For completionists perhaps this would look endearing among all their other Rush CDs, however this is a money grabbing exercise in shameless marketing. There could have been some rarities, oddities or live tracks to appeal to the ardent Rush fan but unfortunately there is nothing new under the sun with this release.
