The best of MTV Unplugged
18 November 2007 | by funkydoodycoolSee all my reviews

Who would believe that I'm only just sitting down to watch this show for the first time ever! I've had the CD since it came out all those years ago, and its got to be one of my most listened CDs.

Watching the live show now, it just adds an extra dimension to the music I already loved to death.

I write songs, and I've always been a believer in "if it doesn't sound good on an acoustic guitar, its not good at all". I write punk and hard rock songs... and this film shows exactly why that statement is true.

A must for all fans of music, especially those who denounced grunge (and most other rock for that matter)as "just a load of noise".
