AllMusic Review by

Buyer beware: inexplicably, Madacy reissued this release two months after its first appearance as All out of Love: Live. The only difference between this version and the original is the fact the DVD and CD are contained on a single, double-sided disc. After a mild hiatus from touring and the 2003 Japan-only release of Across the Concrete Sky, Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell hit the road in 2004 and produced what is their first official live record. How it came to pass that nearly three decades went by, and a slew of greatest-hits compilations were issued, but why no live records were recorded during that period is a bit of a mystery, especially because one of the duo's greatest strengths was their live performances. They play simply the hits here, and it's a wise decision, as their recent material doesn't even come close to holding up when compared to their brilliant releases of the '70s and '80s. The performances are still top form, with Graham Russell's voice every bit as passionate as it was back when his hair wasn't so gray.
