The consensus is that the Human League have continued to thrive as a live
act throughout the years. Live at the Dome,
unfortunately, doesn't back this up. Recorded at a late 2003 appearance at
Brighton, England's Dome, this set — heavy on
along with stray favorites that span the group's existence — is full of
energy, and the group remains excited to play its material to its fans, but
voice isn't near top form. Occasionally hoarse-sounding, he often strains as
Susan Anne Sully's
responses tend to be a little nasal. The arrangements are rarely changed,
though "The Lebanon" is actually improved with a different drum sound.
Insatiable fanatics will see past the faults, but there's no doubting that
the DVD version of the performance is far more preferable.

Recorded on their 2003 comeback tour, the Rita, Sue and Bob Too of techno
pop have changed little....Endearing.
