I've never listened to the 2 shows which make up this matrix, "Reflected Light" & "Earthly Luminescence". All I know is that I have this feeling that I've just bought an album from the store. Maybe I am biased as I was involved in this project (just doing the artwork) but the overall experience since I was offered to do the covers has been nothing but fantastic! I hope you like it too!

Well, well, well, what do we have here? A “classic” audience recording: good sound and environment, clear drums (excuse me, EXCEPTIONAL DRUMMER!!!), the voice not accurate at times; it sounds as Geddy was mumbling. A Matrix you say of two boots? oh. That is way “YYZ” and “Early Distant Warning” seem to be taken from the same source: “A Perfect Light”.
At 2:40 from “Tom Sawyer” the drums gets a little bit messy. Perhaps the distance plays that trick on it. As it has been habitual, after song number four or five, Geddy salutes the audience, says how happy they are to be there, asks the audience if they are ready for the (“many”) hours of music to come (“tons” was used in a couple of occasions according to those boots I have). Com’ on you guys, you can be better than that.
Alex’s chorus in “Earthshine” is someway behind Geddy’s voice. Ok, actually it is a euphemism: his voice is not good performing the chorus.
Interesting that YYZ is played during the first part of the show. Usually it was performed as one of the last songs of every show (well, I’m taking the boots I have as a reference) or even as an encore. Who’s that guy speaking during certain portions of the tune? Anyway, the temperature diminishes for “The Pass”, a tune that Geddy consistently considers one of his (or the band?) favorites. Actually it is a very nice song with different tempos.
In sum, an average boot (thanks a lot for the tapping of course, it is just in terms of reference), nice environment, very good selection of songs, the guys in “excellent shape”. (2007-08-06)
