Rush's second collection of videos reminds us of why, perhaps, they are first and foremost an 'audible' experience. Studio footage is of course always welcomed, but their entry into the world of Music Video leaves much to be desired.

27 January 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I never thought much about Rush before seeing the R30 Concert, except for the fact that Neil Peart was a god. However, after watching this blistering performance, which hooks you in like nothing else with its 13 some-odd minute musical jam session which starts it all, I understand why these guys are cultural icons. My only complaint is the unnecessary use of Jerry Stiller (Frank Costanza) at the beginning and end of the performance on the wide screen. I'm sure the Germans were rather indifferent to it, as would anyone would be. But holy crepes, this band is tight as hell. Geddy Lee is flawless in voice and kick-butt bass playing. Alex Lifeson still rocks with sonic ingenuity. And Neil Peart - I can watch just him for the entire show without anything else as he is simply perfect and the best drummer in rock history. Highly recommended to Rush lovers and naysayers alike.
