Let me first start off the review of this recording with a WOW!  This is an incredible performance from Rush.  Anthem starts off without Alex until he joins in a minute late!  That's only the first problem for Alex.  Later on he has some difficulties with the start of AFtK.  Performing in Sweden is a rare event and the boys are up to to it with a phenomenal performance.  This is the first night of their Scandinavian tour and Geddy says he's glad to be back in Sweden again, and so is the crowd.  The band sounds incredibly powerful tonight and Geddy is really going the extra mile on the high notes.  There is some low end distortion that occasionally pops up during the really heavy sections, but nothing distracting.  You can hear Neil's drums very well, including the ride cymbal!  The recording has an excellent stereo atmosphere the correctly captures the ambience of the venue well.  Highly recommended recording for any Rush fan.
