    Best unplugged show

    I feel that this is the best unplugged show you can hear. They picked perfect songs and performed them amazingly. If you are an AIC fan.. GET IT!

    UNBELIEVABLE

    This performance is truly one fo the best in music history. I believe this performance is second only to Nirvana's unplugged. It truly represents what an unbeleivable band Alice in Chains was. They were the TRUE pioneer of grunge music. Buy this DVD, you will be truly amazed by Layne Staley's (singer) and Jerry Cantrell's (guitarist) sounds and music talents!!

    Stale

    This was filmed after the bands hiatus,they sound really bad.Mabye their songs just do not transfer to the ''unpugged'' setting very well. It seems to me they are just uninspired. Layne Staley (singer)struggles to hold notes, and Sean Kiney's drumming is reserved and generic. I returned this video and bought '' Video Bank'' instead. (see review)
