Editorial Reviews

Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland is the ultimate Rush live album. Recorded during last year's sold outTime Machine tour, the CD captures the band in great form in the city where their career really kicked off.

The 26 song 2-disc set includes the band's performance of the classic Moving Pictures in its entirety. It features that album's smashes "Tom Sawyer" and "Limelight" as well as other catalog greats like "Working Man," "The Spirit Of Radio" and more.

My biggest fear in reviewing this album was my bias towards this tour.

Having been a Rush fan for most of my life, I had not ever seen them live. However, October 2010 the perfect storm of location, finances, and opportunity formed to allow me to experience one of my favorite bands live for the first time. It was a magical night, a great concert, and in my opinion, perfect in every conceivable way.

The show was sublime.

But that doesn't mean this CD necessarily is.

It's really hard to review this particular CD. On one hand, it is a great souvenir for anyone who attended the Time Machine tour in 2010-2011. The setlist for both halves of the tour are identical. This is EXACTLY the same show I saw in West Palm Beach at the end of the first leg of their tour. It is very easy for me to put this on my stereo or i-pod and be instantly transported to that beautiful October night on the grass at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.

However, as far as the "quality" of the content here, I have to be brutally honest here and say that it's a mixed bag.

On one hand, it contains the entire Moving Pictures album performed live and in order. This means the first live recorded performance of The Camera Eye. For true fans, this epic track is worth the price of admission alone. I'm not happy they split the Moving Pictures album between the two CD's, I would have much rather that they split the CD's where the intermission came during the show (between Subdivisions and Tom Sawyer). However, I understand that space limitations on the CD's may have made this unavoidable.

On the other hand, however, as far as previously unreleased live tracks go, this one only contains a handful, 5 out of 26 to be exact.

I was hoping this release would be 'the one' that gets it right for 21st century Rush live recordings. Nope. It is a major step back in sound quality. What am I talking about? Mr. Peart's drums are very low in the mix -- no hi-hat can be heard, only when there is an open hat accent (Subdivisions, Time Stand Still), and ride cymbal can scarcely be discerned. Toms have no distinction, bass drum has no punch, and the snare is a weak whack with annoying overtones. Peart's sound effects triggers are missing. Really poor mix. Why would the producers do this to a historically imporatant live record? Why would they muffle one of the greatest living rock drummers on one of his last great tours with his band? I purchase every live release from Rush but I am passing on this one. I have a copy of htis release and have listened to it several times, and the more I hear it I want to throw it out.

On the other hand, Ged's bass playing is clear and up front. I can hear almost every note he plays.

Back in the old days Rush would release a live record after every four studio albums. These days brand new Rush albums are few and far between so the band tends to release a live record after every tour, a tradition they started after the Test for Echo tour in 1997. The obvious treat here is the "Moving Pictures" album presented in its entirety. Mind you every single track off that album has been released on another live release since 2003 so the real reason to buy this set is for "The Camera Eye", a song Rush fans have been salivating over for years.

Some other gems here are "Presto", "Faithless", and the two new songs "BU2B" and "Caravan". That being said the rest of the material has appeared on other Rush live releases in the past, some songs on almost every single one! That's not a bad thing. "Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland" is a satisfying audio scrapbook for anyone who attended the tour (I went to four shows) and of course good listening for those unfortunate souls who missed it.

The only thing keeping me from giving this five stars is the fact that, as I said earlier, most of the music has appeared on several other live releases and therefore doesn't seem fresh or new. Also, I wish they would have held back on the sound effects during the "Moving Pictures" portion of the show.

Peace, and enjoy.

I saw Rush live on this tour, so buying this CD was a no-brainer. And since "Moving Pictures" stands as one of my favorite albums of all-time, it was not much of a decision to buy this release.

Rush has aged graciously. The band members have largely stayed on track, avoiding rehab and the other pitfalls of rock-and-roll. In concert, they put on an awesome show. They remain serious about their craft. This is not some cheesy Vegas-style review of their song catalog. Geddy, Alex and Neil take their jobs seriously, and it shows. They remain consummate professional musicians.

So has Geddy's voice gotten a bit lower? It sounds like it has. Do the cute gimmicks that they show on-screen during the shows translate to an audio CD? No, not really. Yet Rush stands as one of the most enduring rock bands of the last 30 years. And this CD capture the essence of Rush live. if you listen closely, the audience can be heard at virtually every moment. Not just at the start and end of songs. Their fans pretty much worship this band, even after all of these years.

Hearing "Moving Pictures" straight through was phenomenal. The band held true to the original -- no detours or changed tempos. It sounds amazing. They do change up a few other songs on the CD, and I can't say they all worked. "Closer to the Heart" did not take to the reggae remix.

All told, this release is a bargain at the price, and I recommend it to even the casual Rush fan. Enjoy.
