5 stars Being the Rush n00b I am, I gave this five stars before it even came out. That's because Rush pretty much has the reputation of taking things above and beyond. Yay. Anyway, (as usual) the performance is amazing. The sound is much better than Rush In Rio (but that was due to extenuating circumstances) and those ADD cameras from Rio have thankfully slowed down. There have been many complaints regarding eight of the songs being cut from the performance. I actually think that was a good idea. I mean, "Tom Sawyer," "YYZ" and the bunch are great songs, but repetition becomes an issue and I think the band wanted to avoid overkill. Besides, we get gems such as "Between The Wheels," "Mystic Rhythms" and "Xanadu" instead. With the Rush In Rio DVD, your song collection will be complete, naysayers. Lots of old interviews (from 1979-2002) and video performances (from 1975-2005) make Disc 2 the really fun one. I mean, what more could you ask for? Finally, the packaging is superb too. It's high-quality stuff and just well put together- not just one disc slapped in an empty DVD case (like most other music DVDs are that I've seen). So overall, the R30 DVD just can't not please you in anyway. R30 is a fitting tribute to the band and to the fans that have stuck with them since the beginning.
