Anyone who thorougly enjoyed Rush in the 21st century must be a Zumbi sockpuppet account.

Rush live is awesome in the 21st century.

In 2015, the ground starts to become unstable.

Damn, you found me out.

Let me tell you about the fifteen identical copies of the remastered CD I just bought from Amazon.

While I don't think there needed to be a whole new thread created about this, Mindcore, I do agree with you.

Many people on here are so critical of Geddy's voice because it doesn't sound like what it did in 1978.  Give me a break.  People age.  Now, am I saying you have to love everything Rush has ever done?  No.  But if you're complaining about Geddy's voice on every thread you get the chance, do us all a favor and please shut up.

And while I have the opportunity, let me just point out that if you don't like anything Rush has done since 1982, you're not a true fan.  The reason I'm saying this is because I'm noticing that those are the people who are complaining about Geddy's voice the most.  That's fine, go listen to All the World's a Stage (their worst live album, by the way) and kindly leave us true fans to appreciate how good Geddy sounds for a man his age.

HERE YE, HERE YE! LET IT BE KNOWN FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, THAT DISK98 IS THE SOLE ARBITER AND JUDGE IN THE DETERMINATION OF WHAT MAKES A TRUE FAN OF THE FORMER TRIO KNOWN AS RUSH.

That is all.

I haven't been on here in ages but finally had some free time to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon perusing the Internet and return to this forum.

I can't believe the bashing that is going on about Geddy's vocals on the tour and (in particular) the DVD/Blu-ray. I thought people on here were fans. Obviously (I think) the ones that are complaining are too young to understand aging. Yes, I too have noticed that Geddy no longer has that range of his youth, but he still "sounds like" himself! Trust me, I've seen every tour since AFTK and even in the 80's I noticed differences in his range from the 70's songs that were still in rotation. Part of it was growing as a vocalist and the fact that he did start taking vocal lessons and instead of "screaming" parts he was actually singing them!

I was at the second Toronto show and Ben Mink and the band doing Losing It for the first time ever live was the pinnacle!

Why is nobody focusing on the extremely great musicianship of these 3 in their mid 60's and can pull off some of the most complex compositions that they admit were difficult when they first recorded them (Hemispheres)? They put musicians a third of their age to shame!!!!

I thought the people on this forum were true fans (and understanding human beings). I guess I was wrong. I wish I could do the things I could 30-40 years ago but I can't (and, for the older members, I'm sure you can't either). Why do you expect them to do the same? For you younger members, you'll understand when you get to my age (50).

Peace out. Rush is still the greatest Rock band in my opinion and I thank them for 40 wonderful years of music. They owe me (or anyone else) NOTHING!

My only complaint about R40 is that it's over and that Rush has no idea at all anymore how to record themselves. Live or studio, they are clueless. How did that happen?

Right, so to be "true fans" we aren't allowed to complain about anything.

Gimme a f***ing break :facepalm:

I'm so happy you are the "first and only perfect" human being that ever existed on Earth.

Ummm......Jesus, me.........Bowl City is a distant 3rd.

I think since their final tour ended the fan base is intwo different camps, both a bit angry. One, the fans that are unhappy at Neils solo abrupt decision to retire, and second, those that will be loyal to Neil no matter what, and bottle up their frustrations by not admitting they are not happy with the end. Sad that the once positive consensus during the tour and periscope parties has faded.
The people who hate Neil, and the ones who won't admit they hate Neil.

Yes.  I saw R40 in St. Louis...so relatively close to the beginning of the tour (4th show in)...flawless.  Seriously.  I hadn't heard Geddy sound like that in years, and all of them sounded just excellent.     So, with this as my experience I really looked forward to the concert coming out on disc, so I could own it and additionally get one for my sister who was unable to attend any concerts for this tour.   I was so disappointed when I heard the sound quality R40 live...just deplorable.  Glad I didn't buy it.   They used to know how to record a live concert, what happened?!  Listen to ESL or All the Worlds a stage and the sound quality is excellent...even up to A Show of Hands it is!  R40 live is rendered almost unlistenable it's so bad.   The mixing is so off and off putting.      The last live album I got was S & A and even that was nowhere as bad as R40.  So disppointing for such an excellent concert.

I have liked Neil's work for 37 years. Dont know him personally but like his work. Not thrilled with how he unilaterally called the last shot, with how some on their staff described him at the end, as "The Emperor."

I believe FOH is actually a legit person. There was another person, Supersnake, or something on here who was actually brought to light to be a fraudulent person though. Maybe someone can help me with the name, it's been a while.
