Different Stages: Live

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
On their fourth live album since their inception in the early '70s, Rush's three-CD Different Stages: Live is similar in approach and feel to their first in-concert release, 1976's All the World's a Stage. Instead of overdubbing and cleaning up the performances as they did on their last two live albums 1981's Exit...Stage Left and 1988's A Show of Hands, the tracks are left raw and rocking. And with very limited use of synthesizers which plagued A Show of Hands, the results are often extremely impressive. The first two discs are comprised of renditions of hits from Rush's past couple of tours 1994's Counterparts and 1997's Test for Echo, while the third is a long-lost ...

The first two discs are comprised of renditions of hits from Rush's past couple of tours 1994's Counterparts and 1997's Test for Echo, while the third is a long-lost classic show from London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1978. On discs one and two, such Rush standards as "2112," "Tom Sawyer," and "The Spirit of Radio" are joined by recent material "Dreamline," "Stick It Out," "Roll the Bones," etc. and obscure tracks "Natural Science," "Analog Kid," etc., which makes for a perfect balance of material. But it's the third disc that will have longtime fans frothing at the mouth -- for the first time ever on an official release, live versions of "Cygnus X-1," "A Farewell to Kings," and "Cinderella Man" are presented. Even though no material from the mid- to late '80s is included, Different Stages: Live will delight Rush's adoring throng of fans.

    Different Stages is their best live cd!

    This 3 cd set may not include a few favorites due to it being their fourth live album. Saying that though I will say that some of the lesser known songs recorded live makes up for it. Bravado, Dreamline, Driven and Animate are all awesome live and you still get classics such as Limelight, Spirit of Radio and the full version of 2112. They also throw in the bonus cd from the 70's with Working Man, Xanadu and Cygnus X1. This compilation will expand your horizons and give you insight to the greatest live band ever!

    Set down, and Crank it up, imagine the stage, and Dream.

    This live concert based disc placed me back to every concert i've attended from the beginning to the encore. It left me wanting much more. The third disc from Hammersmith is the best of all and the drum solo is the best Neil Peart has composed to date. Lets pray for Peart as he copes with the loss of his daughter and his wife and hope he puts his thoughts in his music. I don't know how they can top this one.

    Must have for all Rush fans--old and new

    Excellent live album. The 1st two discs are from the T4E and Counterparts tours. I especially enjoyed the long epic ''2112''. The 3rd disc is from '78 in London. Outstanding tracks on it are ''Xanadu'', ''By-Tor and the Snow Dog'' which is cut short, and ''Cygnus X-1''.

    Rush forever!!!

    I did not really start listening to Rush until the last year or so, but after purchasing Different Stages I am addicted. I now have more music by Rush in my collection than any other artist, and I plan to add more. The live version of Closer to the Heart is just awesome and I think I've done permanent damage to my fingers while listening to The Rythm Method in the car. I really hope the band will tour again so that I can go to my first live concert.

    Different Stages epitomizes the 25 year success-filled career for the rock band legend, Rush

    If one has been unable to ever experience a live Rush concert performance, this album, as did 'All the World's A Stage', 'Exit Stage Left' and 'A Show of Hands', will greatly affect one's appreciation for this band.

    Rush Still Rules

    I've Followed Rush for 23 years now and all I can say is that they improved with age from one live album to the other. I really wonder what can they possibly do after an album like that. They give the meaning of music new unexplainable and unexplored horizons. God bless them and I hope they will still entertain us for another 25 years, because I am sure they will still leave me in awe.

    RUSH

    TRUE TO FORM RUSHS' POWERFUL SOUL IS REVEALED BY AN UNMATCHED LYRICAL STYLE, AND MAGICAL MUSICAL VOICE. STILL AWSOME AFTER 25 PLUS YEARS.
