    This live album may provide an aperitif for those who've never seen the band perform. [May/June 2008, p.93]
  2. Never mind the tattle in the press, the live show proves that the rumors are true. The music speaks for itself. The Gossip is the real deal.
  3. The live format suits Gossip well.
  4. It highlights their strengths (that voice, those beats, that authentic giving-it-their-all vibe) and hides their weaknesses (lack of songwriting breadth and dynamic diversity) making it sound like there's no place more fun than a Gossip concert, and no better host than Beth Ditto.
  5. The hardcore will find ‘Live In Liverpool’ too light while new converts would be better off delving into the treasure trove of old albums.
  6. 60
    A stopgap while The Gossip work on new material, this album is nonetheless worth the price of a hand-stamp. [May 2008, p.102]
  7. 40
    Reduced to aural bones, Gossip's live show in Liverpool last year still rocks, but in a diminished way. [May 2008, p.100]
