4 stars This is a very solid live album, and you won't get a better version of YYZ anywhere. Usually i don't like live albums because I prefer clean sounds, rather than raw, and therefore i really liked this one because it is just to smooth to be ignored. And with an allstar song group, all the favorites and then some, this album can only be considered RUSH LIVE in the truest sense. Whether or not you were even born, because i sure wasn't, when this concert took place you WILL feel as if you experienced it in its entirety after you listen to this CD. Unfortunately this is a little dull for a live album, as it doesn't feel very 'lively'. Basically no crowd noise at all, and the songs don't really sound anymore energetic than their studio counterparts.

Fantastic song choice, flawless production, and a special extended version of YYZ. Too bad it's not very spunky, and for a live album, that's a little bit of a downfall. Still a solid 4 stars, though.
