"Candlebox" uhhhggg...
"Get A Grip" big suck
"The Battle Rages On" pretty good (for an excellent band)
"Counterparts" yeah...Best LP of 93'

Yeah, a lot of us saw this tour and have bootlegs. Blah blah. Stay on topic.

This SACD is very good. Even though it didn't get the surround treatment, this mix is excellent. There is a ton of punch from the low end and the mid range is very robust. I cranked this up on my Oppo last night and was thoroughly impressed. As much of as a Yes fan as I also am, this beat the snot out of the "Close to the Edge" SACD (released same day).

FWIW, this Counterparts SACD also runs circles around the 24K "Roll the Bones". That album is still tough, especially from a production standpoint.

ive said it a million times . this is my favorite rush album from start to finish .if you listen to the lyrics and the music they flow very well together, but thats just me. now you can all tell me how crazy i am.

Odd choice for the SACD treatment, and I think their statement about it being "the Rush masterpiece of the 90's" is a bit overblown, to be honest. Would have much preferred an SACD of Presto, actually, if they're trying to stay within that general era, but I'll take what I can get. Don't get me wrong, Counterparts has its moments, good and less so, but I just don't see a clear advantage that the SACD treatment gives to it. I'll give it a listen before I pass judgement, though.

I believe this dvd is a bootleg? by the way this was my first Rush concert. It was March 22 1994 and I was in spring break from my college in Mexico and visited my brother to Holland Michigan who was working for a Company that was moving into Monterrey Mexico (our hometown). He invited me since the robotics company FANUC was a supplier and they had an executive box in the Palace (with food, drinks, all included). I will never forget my first Rush experience. After this I've seen Rush in San Diego, Scranton Pa, Houston and San Antonio.

liver--
i bought this at a bootleg store in toronto called edward's record store in toronto, however, they are not in business anymore because they were nailed for piracy issues, so the story is. over the years i picked up around 32 bootlegs from vhs, dvd's and cd's. they had one copy of counterparts left and i snatched it up. i believe this actual concert is on youtube. wish they were still there, it was a pretty big store.
