Love Love: UK & European Tour 2010

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jon O'Brien
Having overtaken KT Tunstall's mantle as Scotland's premier husky-voiced acoustic singer/songwriter, Amy MacDonald releases her first live album, recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo on her 2010 Love Love: U.K. and European tour. Crediting her multi-platinum success across Germany, France, Belgium, and Britain to her extensive touring schedule, this three-CD 19-track collection is a chance for those yet to experience the Glaswegian's sound up close and personal; to hear what all the fuss is about. With only two studio albums under her belt, the set list contains few surprises, with only "A Wish for Something More" and "Barrowland Ballroom" omitted from her chart-topping ...

Having overtaken KT Tunstall's mantle as Scotland's premier husky-voiced acoustic singer/songwriter, Amy MacDonald releases her first live album, recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo on her 2010 Love Love: U.K. and European tour. Crediting her multi-platinum success across Germany, France, Belgium, and Britain to her extensive touring schedule, this three-CD 19-track collection is a chance for those yet to experience the Glaswegian's sound up close and personal; to hear what all the fuss is about. With only two studio albums under her belt, the set list contains few surprises, with only "A Wish for Something More" and "Barrowland Ballroom" omitted from her chart-topping debut This Is the Life, and "My Only One" and "Your Time Will Come" missing from her underwhelming follow-up, A Curious Thing. The stronger performances and the seemingly more well-received songs are indeed from her 2007 LP, including the tribute to troubled star Pete Doherty, "Poison Prince," her infectious "Ring of Fire"-influenced breakthrough, "Mr Rock & Roll," and her attack on the vacuousness of celebrity culture, "Footballer's Wife." However, backed by an eight-piece string orchestra in addition to her long-standing tight backing band, MacDonald's sophomore album is given a new lease of life, particularly on the passionate rendition of "Don't Tell Me It's Over" and the soulful ballad "What Happiness Means ro Me." While the two-track encore, a powerful cover version of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run" and a rousing rendition of the poetic "Let's Start a Band," showcase MacDonald's seductively charming vocals, which sit somewhere between the lilting Celtic tones of Dolores O'Riordan and the folky sensibilities of Kirsty MacColl. With its specially adapted new arrangements and confident, self-assured performances, this unique recording of the Love Love tour goes some way toward illustrating why MacDonald has become such a popular live draw.
