How It Is is one of the top 5 performances on the album IMO

I think I need to pass a nickname onto you from another poster. I am now going to call you Shirley.

Shirley you can't be serious.

Really? What did you expect? He's old and his vocal chords are tired. It's stupid to critisize him under these circumstances and compare him to other singers, while his singing is not in top shape, not because of poor technique, but because of his age.

Many of the fans here are dissapointed in Geddy's vocals because of ridiciously high expectations, which is interesting because we all KNOW what Geddy's singing condition these days is. Which is surprisingly new to some people..

I did not expect too much of him, therefore I really enjoyed watching both Toronto shows on the tour.

Obviously, the OP hasn't heard how Geddy's voice is on The Camera Eye. Much worse than How It Is.

I agree, it's one of my favorites on this release, and it was one of my favorites every time I saw them do it this Summer.

How It Is isn't my favorite performance on the DVD, but it had some much needed life that's missing on the studio version

I'll have to stop coming into these threads until I've actually had chance to watch the DVD :| :sigh:

In other news, at a rate similar to the decline of Geddy's voice, the city of Venice is sinking and will one day drown completely.

It was amazing live.  I never liked the song on record - but at the show in Newark I was quite impressed.  I like it a bit less on R40L, but it's still better, IMO than the studio version.

It's a bad song, so don't much care how it came out on the dvd, the first set is pretty disappointing for me

I kind of agree.  It was a waste of time in the concert. They could've played something like Turn The Page or Cut To The Chase instead which would've really perked up the first set.

I don't disagree with the OP about the performance on the official R40 release.

Clearly for me the absolute lowlight of the entire set. And it is not even close. Falls completely flat on it's face.....automatic skip now for me.

Energywise the first set torched set 2 on all 3 occasions I saw them. It was weird

Sure, they COULD have played Cut to the Chase, but really, who's bladder is THAT week?

You're right. Set one did go up in flames and burnt to a crisp.

CTTC is the very definition of a bathroom break song, but would be too early in the concert to be useful.
