AllMusic Review by

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 Dare!, 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 Philip Oakey's voice isn't near top form. Occasionally hoarse-sounding, he often strains as well, and Susan Anne Sully's and Joanne Catherall'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.
