Biography

Rush – Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart – is without question one of the most inventive and compelling groups in rock history, equally famed for both its virtuoso musicianship and provocative songwriting.

Just last year, a career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature praised the band for its continuing artistic vitality, noting that “It’s true that Rush ... Read more in Amazon's Rush Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistently Rush, Consistently Good April 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was at the St. Louis show, so this cd is a nice reminder of a very nice night for me and my son. Many have complained about Rush's frequency of live releases and song list, to them I would respond, check out live King Crimson. I love that band too, but they put out a ton of live stuff, many of the same tracks repeated over and over. I don't think Rush is guilty of milking the cash cow, I think they're doing a nice service to us fans.

The live recording itself is imaculate. The sound quality is first rate. The band is performing at a very high level, and consistently well, as Rush usually does. Perhaps they could mix things up a bit, but seeing a live Rush show is seeing a band that's been together as a unit for many years, a tight band that does what it's supposed to do, put on a consistently great show.

The new album Snakes & Arrows is emphasized in the set list, as this tour was to promote that album. I for one liked that album. Beyond that there are a few old gems such as Circumstances, Entres Nous, and Witch Hunt which are very nice to hear live. Mixed amongst all this are the classic tracks, such as Tom Sawyer, Freewill, etc.

I have looked forward to this album since I first heard about it, and was not disappointed. 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars-- Another great live performance. April 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I have to confess, even as a diehard Rush fan, I'm starting to wonder a bit about live album saturation. To be fair, Rush doesn't exactly inject a lot of variances in their performances over the years-- "Spirit of Radio" hasn't changed a whole lots since 1980. The band had a tendency to "bookend" their studio records with a live album-- All the World's a Stage, Exit...Stage Left and A Show of Hands each provided pretty much a live "best of" from the four studio records that came before (with the latter two each drawing a pair of songs from earlier material).

Starting with 1998's Different Stages: Live, Rush's live albums have had less to do with a period of time and more a pretty straight echo of a live performance. And for a band that released four live albums over the course of their first 28 years, when their last two live records came out in reasonably rapid succession (2003's Rush in Rio and the audio CD portion of 2005's Rush - R30 - 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition), I have to confess to wondering, "do I really need these?". 2008's "Snakes & Arrows Live" evoked a similar response from me.

But hey, who am I kidding? I am a diehard, and this record is fantastic-- taken from the band's tour behind 2007's

5.0 out of 5 stars The world is still their stage! April 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD
As every fan knows, Rush excel at playing live. It is a distinct part of what makes them so great. And they have finally broken out of the limited pattern of 4 studio albums followed by a live recording. They have been giving fans an abundance of live works lately. And while it may appear to some as a ploy to make a few extra bucks for nothing, each and every release has been a high-quality package, offering the fans another chance at a road-trip to see the band. They always manage to throw in an old classic not previously captured to tape or played quite the same way before.

Rush have always been conscientious about giving their fans good value for the money. And the bar is always set high by them and by us. Snakes & Arrows Live is another hurdle over that bar. It's fun, it rocks, and it's a great addition to your Rush collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rush's Arrow finally hits the Live Album Mark April 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Ok, ok - so Rush has finally figured out we are all gullible to buy live album after live album. Us old school fans used to have wait every 4 albums for a live one.

But the problem for Rush and their live albums - is they liked to play the songs almost verbatium from the studio recordings (seriously, Show of Hands - was that all the studio songs mixed with the crowd?).

Over the last few tours and live albums they have tended to experiment more, play looser, and really make you want to hear the live version of songs. Snakes and Arrows Live seems to be the culmination of that effort. The older stuff (Limelight, Spirit of the Radio, etc.) still sounds the same. But the newer stuff, they really play freer and it sounds awesome - particularly Alex. It's also nice that they continue to add some stuff we haven't heard in awhile - Passage, Between the Wheels, Entre Nous. Geddy's voice is hurting a little, but the instruments sound incredible. It also seems to be an uncut version of the whole concert - Rush has been going that way, finally they did it!

My only complaint on this album, same as the last couple of live albums, is they add way too much bass for me personally. Oh, and the Drum Solo - it's by far the most exciting one in a long time from Neil. It's worth the price of admission for that solo.

So, should you buy it? If you are a hard core rush Fan - absolutely... you won't be disappointed. If you are a occassional listener and already own Live in Rio or the previous live album, don't..not enough classics for the occassional fan.

Live Cd
I'm excited about this cd too. Their last live cd, Different Stages was awesome. I got to see them last year, and it was a blast. Rush puts on a fantastic show. I'm hoping to get to see them again this year.
