iTunes Review

After showing a resurgence of power with its Snakes & Arrows studio release, the band decided to capitalize on its re-found energy and enthusiasm with a live career retrospective recorded in Rotterdam over two nights in 2007. A thirty-five year career means not everything can be covered, but the band makes a valiant effort to include the songs that still resonate among its members. Singer Geddy Lee has had to pull off the top end of his vocal range, and that's actually become a bonus, since the warmer timbre adds emotional depth to songs such as "Limelight," "Freewill," "The Spirit of Radio," "Tom Sawyer," and "A Passage to Bangkok." The band's impeccable musicianship is on full display. Guitarist Alex Lifeson, in particular, seems energized, after having spent much time playing second fiddle to the additional layers of keyboards over the years, and drummer Neil Peart is always an animal behind his kit, relishing in the technical challenges of switching time signatures at will. The newer material — "Armor and Sword," "The Larger Bowl" — slip in nicely alongside the crowd pleasers and "YYZ" finishes things off with a suitable instrumental celebration.

Epic as ALWAYS

These guys man.....these guys have been making my musical and lyrical life better for the past 24 years. That they are still actively touring and releasing albums is just beyond all! More joy for us as the years roll on by. I would love to see them on this tour, as the new album sounds like they are combining new cuts with very deep cuts, and getting rid of the light-weight stuff. I highly reccomend this album to any core Rush fan. Sure this is about the tenth time I have bought the live version of Tom Sawyer, Limelight and Spirit of Radio.....but being the devoted fan that I am, I guess it still sounds epic when it is crunched between some of the new material. The new material sounds EPIC. I can only imagine it with their light show. BUY the album. Your money goes to a REAL band of WORKING MUSICIANS that still TOUR after all these years!

The Greatest Live Band Of Alltime

Back in the early years Rush would put out a live album every 4 studio albums and that seemed to be plenty. Now a days Rush puts forth a live album after every studio LP. But this new disc appears to be the entire show from start to finish and that would be a first. Saw this tour at Mohegan sun casino and it was great, the boys did not play the usual classics like Working Man , 2112 or La Villa but they played Bangkok! and a bunch of there new tunes. There was a screen appearance by the South Park Boys playing Tom Sawyer (classic moment) once again the trio from Canada out does them selves, A true classic live disc, thanks guys.

Thank You Rush!

I was fortunate enough to attend the Snakes & Arrows concert this past weekend (April 11, 2008) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. To have this recording released a few days after the show (even though a total coincidence) its just fantastic. What a great present. I have been a fan for nearly 30 years and this was my first chance to see them live. These guys absolutely rock. What a show! I knew they were good, but to see them live…their level of virtuosity is mind blowing. It was a spiritual experience. Can’t wait for the concert DVD to come out so I can revive it again and again. Rush, you have my most sincere gratitude.
