staind: MTV Unplugged
Released: April 28, 2003
This DVD brings a whole new essence to the catharsis that is Staind's music. Aaron and the boys in Staind show that they can pull off some of there of their heaviest tunes in great acoustic fashion.

Sound: The sound is great! Staind really worked out on the acoustic stuff, and it's amazing how their songs gain a brand new dynamic. They even invited Terry Balsamo (ex-Cold) to play in some of their songs. Aaron's voice is real smooth in that show, but when needed, he puts his wonderful voice giving us a sweet headache, leaving us wish to hear more and more. The bass is clean, the drums callmed down, but still very powerfull and smooth sound! // 10

Content: Track list: 01. Home 02. Me 03. Pressure 04. Excess Baggage 05. Suffer 06. Waste 07. Epiphany 08. It's Been Awhile 09. Can't Believe 10. Fade 11. Outside Extras: 12. Mudshovel -Video 13. Fade - Video 14. Outside - Video 15. Epiphany - Video 16. Fade (making Of) - this is really cool, very rare and it explains the reason why it became (unfortunately) censored. It was not their fault though. 17. Interview - A cool interview before the show. // 10

Production Quality: The production is great, though I would like to see more different angles. Even though, we can't ask too much, because this show was recorded at a small studio. // 8

Overall Impression: It's a great CD, perfect for people who love Staind, and even the ones who think they are just another crappy nu-metal band, which they are not! And, they're not nu-metal! Watch this DVD, and you'll be amazed! The show was great! I would love I was there! There's nothing that I hate about this DVD. Ok, they could put more videos from the Band, but still, great DVD, I would buy it again if it was stolen, no doubt about it! // 10
