    Explode[s] with musical vitality. [#15, p.97]
  2. The mix of the old, the new, and the unexpected... makes Live at Earls Court one of the most successful albums of Morrissey's career.
  3. The true highlights of this CD are its more touching moments; the moments when the sincerity in Morrissey's voice and power of his music remind fans why they were drawn to him in the first place.
  4. Morrissey's singing appears to have taken a giant leap over the past seven years or so.
  5. Time has proved Morrissey to be just as powerful and alluring a performer at 45 as he was at 23. [2 Apr 2005, p.49]
  6. He's still in lovely voice... and he deploys it on a selection of material that revels in past glories while showcasing his current triumphs. [May 2005, p.104]
  7. 40
    At best superfluous, at worst that very thing he dreads most. Forgettable. [May 2005, p.113]

    I have bootlegs that sound better, but this still sounds mental at high volumes.

    An eclectic mix of live Moz.... Really good, but the song which he does perform by the smiths aren't perhaps his best known ones, but nevertheless a great album Expand

    Good album, but even when Morrissey's voice is in awsome form you can hear how it breaks at the begining of "Let me kiss you". Well, for some people that's a proof that everything was kept real for this album. But the lack of crowd noise and a slightly alarming weakness on the guitars (it's not Alain White the leadre guitar, but Mr. Tobias) makes this only a good album. Better renditions are on the DVD "Who put the M in Manchester". Expand
