Sound: The sound quality is very good, especially considering it's a live album. It is two discs from several shows in America, plus a bonus third disc from a show in London at the Hammersmith in 1978. Everything can be heard clearly, and the sound quality on the 1978 disc is also very good. // 8

Lyrics: As with all Rush songs, the lyrics are great. Neil Peart is the main lyricist, and he writes great songs. Some notable ones include "Nobody's Hero," and "Freewill." Geddy Lee also sings great on all of the songs. He sounds a lot more different comparing the 1978 show to the 1998 one. // 10

Overall Impression: This album is just as good as every other live album Rush has released. They are an amazing live band, and it shows in this compilation. Some of the more impressive songs are a complete performance of "2112", an amazing twenty plus minute song. If I lost it, I would definitely get another, but then again, I am an insanely huge fan of Rush. // 10
