Entertainment Weekly - 7/28/00, p.183
"...It's Elvis in full effect: magnificent pop arais in the studio, swampy grit on stage, and covers that sound schmaltzy until the towering emotion in his voice makes you realize he means every word." - Rating: A
Q - 9/00, p.128
3 stars out of 5 - "...Fuels the legend rather than the reputation...with likeable stage banter....There are moments of glory [here]..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 9/00, p.111
"...Elvis rocks out, clearly enjoying himself, playing to the crowd at the International, including the smoochfest with the ladies during 'Love Me Tender'....[It's] Elvis poised at the top of the arc of his decline..."

Principally recorded at The International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada on August 12, 1970.
Although it shares its title with a documentary about Elvis' 1970 late summer engagement at Las Vegas' International Hotel, the album THAT'S THE WAY IT IS features only two songs ("You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "The Next Step Is Love") that appear in the film. Of the other ten songs here, four were recorded live at the International but not included in the film; the other six are studio recordings from Presley's June 1970 Nashville sessions.
THAT'S THE WAY IT IS captures Presley at the tail end of his transition from rock star to Vegas showman. Gone from Presley's repertoire are the spare rockers and tender love songs that highlight his earlier career. Replacing them are huge production numbers and dramatic ballads like "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "I've Lost You." In fact, the majority of the songs here are down tempo heartbreak songs, nearly all sung with a near-operatic level of intensity. In lesser hands the results would be mawkish, but Presley manages to pull it off. Especially effective are the opening and closing numbers, "I Just Can't Help Believin'" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water."
