Overview

At the Apollo is a standard new millennium live album: it's a multimedia experience containing a DVD and a CD, but unlike so many of these sets, this doesn't replicate the show on video and audio. Instead, the DVD has the titular At the Apollo -- the Manchester Apollo, not the one in Harlem -- and the CD contains a live set recorded that same tour in Austin, TX. Whether this is an attractive package to you depends entirely on your level of devotion to Arctic Monkeys: both are good energetic sets but they're not exceptional, they're merely two of the better nights on tour, nights where the band was conscious of the recording equipment so they turned in a show that's professional but not necessarily memorable. It's a good memento, an entertaining listen, and enjoyable viewing, but it can only be called essential to those who notice whether or not these concerts were performed with the group's new bassist or not (for the record, they are).
