Brent's Bootlegs
   (Audio - 9)

Atmospheric indeed! .. This is the best audience recording I have ever heard. Being such high quality sound and being an audience recording, you can close your eyes and almost think that you are there. If you are looking for a Roll The Bones boot with some atmosphere .. this is certainly it. Some people think that great soundboard shows sound almost like they are a official release and lose the bootleg feel to them. If you are one of them then this is the RTB boot to get. Otherwise, look into obtaining "Mirrors".

Ron's Rush RoIO Review
  

Another show from the European leg of the RTB tour, this tape captures the band in a rare Holland performance. The set list is typical of this tour, but there are some slight differences in the way some of the songs are executed, mainly in the endings. Also by this point, the guys had added a bit of "Cygnus X-1" to the end of the show. This is absolutely the best audience show I have heard. The mix and fullness of this tape are phenomenal. There are some aspects I prefer even over such gems as "Mirrors" and "RNR-92" -- that?s how good this one is. The only flaw is that the very end of "Superconductor" is cut off. However, this may be due to some carelessness on the part of the person who taped it for me. This show is well worth your time.

Rush CD Bootleg List
  

This is probably the best audience Roll the Bones boot out of all those released so far. It even surpasses Over the Europe in terms of quality. And in spite of what was originally thought, those two boots ARE separate shows. The guitar and vocals are very sharp (including the backing vocals that Alex does!), the drums solid, although the bass can be a bit hard to hear. Even the intermission music (before "Show Don't Tell" for example) stands out, as does the "surround" parts ("I will be the judge"). One slightly annoying thing are the fans -- very loud and obnoxious, but luckily only during the first couple of songs. They must've been told someone was recording the show :-) One other thing that is nice (or annoying) is that every, and I mean EVERY song is indexed. Intermission music and song medleys included. Packaging is a bit weak, but does contain some nice shots of the band during the RTB tour. I especially like the back photo of Geddy & Alex playing together! The CDs themselves are very unique, having an ancient calendar on them. Not quite Rush-related, but it seems like something they would've put inside Counterparts. Overall, a sharp-sounding show, well worth checking out, and the best audience RTB show out!

This is the best sounding audience tape ever! It actually sounds so much better than almost every other soundboard out there! I like this bootleg a whole lot more than "Mirrors", most would disagree with me, but it IS they who are wrong! The performance in "Mirrors" is pretty bad when compared to... well, lets just say Kenny G packs more raw passion into his shows. At least in my set list, "Mirrors" has just become obsolete. Never again will I sit through that bland performance. Throughout "Force Ten" you can hear the audience REALLY talk a lot, then they are in the perfect mix for every single second of the rest of the show! I think this is a tremendous must have, I cannot think of one single knock on this one, the sound is 100% and the performance is above average for a great live band! A funny little thing is Alex is freaking out during "Closer to the Heart", he usually does his improv and says something that is at least a sentence structure to it. This time he just spats out things at a hundred miles an hour and I just struggle to keep up, let alone understand. Perfect show, get this one for sure!

This show was one of the first Rush RoIO I acquired many years ago and was literally astonished by the sound quality of an audience recording. The ambiance and the power of this recording is fantastic!! Geddy practices some Dutch with the crowd and rips in to some great songs like Bravado, Superconductor and Dreamline. I particularly enjoy the RTB tour because of the aforementioned songs plus the extended intro to Subdivisions and an extra "Oh - oh" in Freewill. Up until the DAT master source for the Charlotte '92 surfaced in July '01, Atmospheric was my favourite RTB show. Well, if you listen to Charlotte Fever - Platinum Edition, I think it wins out just by a hair in the overall sound quality and performance, but by a mile with the incredible setlist. You can't go wrong with either shows. Both shows are gems from the RTB tour.

Also, after many years of searching, I have finally found the silver pressed CD's of Atmospheric in mint condition. It's great collecting these rare gems!!

What can I say after all this, the show was almost perfect. Especially when they told me some guys were recording the show. Yes, the annoying piece of crowd on the record was me. I'm sorry (no, you're not!) but hey, I had a very good time!!!   (2004-11-16)

The principal characteristic of this boot is its length, plenty of music to enjoy. On the other side of the coin, there is some audience interference at the beginning. It has been said that Atmospheric is the best audience recording from that gig; not quite. At least the bass lacks punch and the drums sound a little bit “noisy”. Since the taping starts before the intro, it allows you to capture the audience’s reactions when the show really begins. In “Bravado”, from mark 2:32 and up to 3:00 there is a strange signal interference. “Show Don’t Tell” is preceded by an extended intro which makes you assume that it was preceded by the intermission. “The Big Money” is excellent as usual with Neil demonstrating why he is the best in the business. “Closer to the Heart” has that impromptu (unless you prove me that Alex can rehearse THAT!!!), which can be considered “Closer to Strangiato”. A connection might be established between the times “La Villa Strangiato” was not performed and the times “Closer” has this kind of loollapallolla. Enjoyable show, average performance.    (2007-10-11)
