exactly how i feel about this disc! i love it start to finish...and love it more each time i listen. jaw dropping and powerful are perfect words here...Wow - what an incredible mix this is! Seems extra special as it came pretty much out of the blue for me. Because of the playback issues I had to rip it to 24/96 flac but it streams perfectly and is, imho absolutely jaw dropping. Superb audio quality and the mix is fully discrete and superbly well done. The drums in particular are very well recorded and positioned with loads of dynamics - like the best of Gavin Harrison on the top Porcs mixes, but even more powerful. Have to agree with other posts - it's how Rush should have been mixed.
thanks all for the mention on Systematic Chaos...good to know i can cross that off my list.
