Their best live dvd yet!,
This review is from: Snakes And Arrows Live [DVD]  (DVD)
We've had quite a few live dvd sets from Rush recently but this is my far and away the best release of their career for me.
This is class from start to finish. The band are on top form, the timing is impecable, and they really do look like they are having a great time.
The camerawork and picture quality is superb throughout. The set starts with Limelight, the band bathed in white light, and that has to be the best picture I have ever seen on a live dvd. Probably any dvd.
There is a lot of older material here Circumstances, Digital Man, Entre Nous and A Passage To Bangkok that the band haven't played live in a while. A sprinkling of tracks from the new cd along with concert favourites like Tom Sawyer, The Sprit of Radio and Subdivisions.
That a lot of this music is 25 or more years old and still sounds great is testament to how good this band's back catalogue is.
Some of the band's quirky humour doesn't always work on me, but it does show the band have a sense of humour and can laugh at themselves a little.
Though when the concert is finished proper and the band has left the stage for good the sight of Geddy in his best Scottish attire announcing on the big screen "Thank God, that ****'s over" is priceless
