2 stars I am a total Rush fan, have all their albums on CD and all their DVDs. Been to 2 of their gigs (Roll The Bones Tour and 30th Anniversary). After hearing this mish mash I am so glad that I did not get tickets for their latest Tour. I couldnt bear to hear 4 or more songs live.

If you are expecting the famous Rush sound, you will be sadly disappointed. No tracks on this album inspire me to want to play it again. What has happened to dear ole Lerxst? the guitars are mediocre and at times just a noise, what about a guitar solo more often eh.

I give the album 2 points for "The Main Monkey Business" the only good track on the album but not worthy of more than a couple of listens at most.

"The Larger Bowl" is the most irritating song in their whole catalogue, I can only stomach the whining "Woh Woh Woh" so much.

If you suffer from sleep depravation, purchase this album, you will be away within minutes.
