Customer Review

on 16 November 2011
Yes Geddy Lee's voice is "bizarre" sounding on this performance. He probably had a cold or something like that, and it is quite disturbing the first couple of time you listen to the album. This said, once you get over it (and it's not THAT bad!), this is quite a good Live. In my opinion much better than the Snakes and Arrows.
The set list is very good, first cd is essentialy based on Rush late 80's and 90's tracks, then comes the entire Moving Pictures (first side on cd 1, second on cd 2), the most interesting part being the second part featuring the less played Camera eye and Vital signs. Then follows some newer tracks, and new versions of Closer to the heart, Villa and Working man, with interesting make-overs!
The performance is very good, sound-wise, it is quite different from the latest Live releases: first the voice, then the drums that are slighlty more in the back, a more guitar driven sound, and the omnipresence (as usual) of the crowd. I find that the overall sound is "clearer", more open and not so bombastic as the "Live in Rio" or the "R30".
Plus, as a bonus the first release (on cd) of two new tracks (here in their live rendition): Caravan and BU2B, which give us a hint of what the next album will be.
I have to say that at first I din't like this release, but, like I said, once you get into it, it's a different experience, and not a bad one at all!
