Ron's Rush RoIO Review

How about those guys at Sirius? It used to be that all we had from this performance was an old cut-up piece of crap tape. Not anymore! This version comes from a DAT dub of the master tape, and is clearly one of the top 5 from this tour, with a great mix and a crisp sound. The only reason I did not rate it higher was that the dynamic range is a bit too wide. The highs get just a bit too shrill for my liking. All in all though, this is a must-have!    (2001-02-02)

This is one of the best audience sources from the HYF tour. This version of the shows is taken from a DAT dub right off the MASTER cassettes. The only drawback is that La Villa and In The Mood are sources from a 2nd gen tape. The master tapes were acquired from a dealer who bought them from the taper. Unfortunately, the third tape was missing. The quality of this show rivals Imaginations on Fire and The Dream Ignites. In my opinion, it is a slight notch above both of them. It has less crowd noise than IoF and a fuller and more dynamic sound than Dream Ignites. This Sirius Productions release is intended for TRADE ONLY. Check out the DRE newsgroup for traders and 2:1 deals on this show. It's a definite must for your collection.    (2002-11-28)

You HAVE to love Sirius records! This gem has long since been sort of tucked away, unnoticed and unappreciated by people due to "A Desperate Voice" being a laserdisc source and also that there existed no review. I thought you should all know about this. Its an excellent sounding show, upfront, minimal tape hiss, and on top of that, a great performance. Far and away my favorite performance of "Prime Mover", really good one. It faces a lot of very stiff competition from other HYF shows, but its as good or better than all of them (except, sound wise, ADV). Its hard to say whether or not its better than "The Dream Ignites", a lot of people are telling me its better, but it MAY be ever sooooo slightly better, but "The Dream Ignites" does not have any cuts. This has two very Unnoticeable cuts between songs, so...ehh, but it does have an annoying cut in "Temples of Syrinx". Either "Dream Ignites" or "Force Without Form" is a great choice. Due to the fact that so much on ADV is on "Show of Hands", I don't listen to that one at all, I just been hearing it to long. Also, "Limelight" makes the WHOLE show just..."feel" better. I was pretty surprised by this, its just that, they come out play "Big Money" and then do "Subdivisions", which is all great, but you need your head blown off with some ballsy rock within the first 20 minutes of a show, "Limelight" does that! Also, "The Dream Ignites" has the funny Alex stunts in 2112, so I say if your getting one (besides ADV) get "Dream Ignites", then get "Force Without Form". Sirius records are just so great with their productions; their tapers know what they are doing!   (2002-11-28)

In this one, the instruments are distant. However, there is a quite noticeable contradiction: FWF doesn’t have the quality of other AUD recordings, but it has what many of those don’t, an audible bass. In addition, the drums are captured quite clearly. The guitar is low, and during the intro of “YYZ”, it sounds as if only the keyboard and bass were playing. “Red Lenses” is indexed but it is only performed for a minute or so. Average boot.    (2008-03-04)
