    For Drummers and Non-drummers alike

    When I first got this I was concerned it would be only for drummers, which I am not. But, the disc offers so much. First, there is a ''performance only'' choice on the DVD, so if you just want the songs with no technical stuff, you have that option. It is like watching all of the TFE songs with close-ups on neil playing (obviously you only hear Geddy and Alex, you cannot see them play). There is also other stuff that is cool--how Neil became interested in drumming, met Rush, etc. It is nice to hear Neil speak, since he is not very accesible in other forums. Highly recommended for a drummer or Rush fan!

    A Superb and Thrilling Performance Indeed

    This DVD opens in the tranquil setting of Neil's country home and provides an excellent narrative of how he progressed to be the drummer of Rush. He goes into great detail of his personal preferences towards the art of drumming and of those who have influenced him directly. There is a section on his drum setup and the choices of equipment, as well as how to dress for drumming. Then he goes on to the selections from the Test for Echo project which feature him playing the drums over the studio tracks of the quitar and bass. He then breaks down his part in the song and the 'tools' he used to construct it. He plays some of his parts without the guitar tracks so you can hear him alone. He occasionally gives a perspective on his drumming style. If you are a Rush fan, this is an awesome work that you would be remiss to exclude from your collection. If you are, like me, new to his and the bands work, it will provide a level of detail that would take years to come by. I only wish he would take the time to do this for the greatest hits compilations as well.
