    Beautifully recorded and performed, Live at the Royal Albert Hall conveys all the drama of Adele's music and is the perfect companion piece to 21.
  2. 80
    Backed by a live band, including a string section and backup singers, Adele brings the dramatics of her two albums to life, with a bit of humorous, cuss-filled banter in between songs.

    Listening to Adele on these 17 songs recorded in her hometown earlier this fall is a bit like watching a pro running back score a touchdown.
  4. 60
    The CD chops out the voluminous chatter, which is one of the strengths of the 1 3/4 hour DVD, but works just fine for on-the-go playback of a dynamic concert.
  5. 60
    Adele's engaging ebullience is powerfully persuasive on this DVD/CD package.

Adele is luminous, compelling, funny and profane throughout, and like I said, her voice is in tiptop shape. It's one of the best 90 minutes of my life. Expand
