closest thing to a perfect rush album.
14 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This DVD is great. First, don't think since you have Rush in Rio you don't need this one. The quality, set list, and extras are all better. Though there are some songs missing(the 8 or so they didn't put in, plus some other favourites we would've liked to hear) the number of old songs they played totally make up for it. I wanted to see closer to the heart played, but putting the tsunami relief closer to the heart PLAYED WITH BUBBLES totally makes up for it. I don't know how some people rate this lower than Rush in Rio, it is much better. It does lack songs like YYZ, closer to the heart, one little victory, secret touch, freewill, new world man, natural science and la villa, but classic songs like Xanadu, the R30 Overture, mystic rhythms, red barchetta, between the wheels, and subdivisions totally make up for it. Also the older videos on the second disc like la villa, Xanadu, fly by night, closer to the heart, and freewill are an excellent addition to an already spectacular DVD.

There was less audience interference in this one, which made a lot of the songs sound better, but made some of them a bit less enthralling. 2112 was an example of this. in R30 its much more precise and whole, but in Rio it was much more powerful with thousand of fans jumping and shouting.

The acoustic addition of heart full of soul went great with resist. I prefer the R30 heart full of soul better than the studio version.

The quality of playing by all 3 members was better than in Rio. Some say Geddy cant sing like he used to, but i find his vocals better now. The high pitched wailing was awesome, but didn't suit everyone. His voice is a lot more calm and enjoyable now. Alex and Neil were a bit off in their timing in Rio, but they are both spot on here. Der Trommler is by far better than O Baterista(though many of you probably wont see any real difference)

The deluxe edition also comes with the concert on 2 Cd's, which is great, so you don't have to purchase a whole other album to listen to it in your stereo.

I find this the closest thing to a perfect rush album you can get, and encourage everyone to purchase it.
