Is he a punk rocker with a wide sensitive streak or a singer-songwriter with just enough attitude to curl his lip into a sneer? Either way, Chris Carrabba -- the artist known as Dashboard Confessional -- has touched a nerve with an ever-growing cadre of fans, a group that'll surely salivate at the prospect of dipping deep into this 15-track concert set. Dashboard's tunes, never overly amped to begin with, take to the "unplugged" treatment nicely, with the radio staple "Screaming Infidelities" and the darting, frazzled "Places You Have Come to Fear the Most" getting (if such a thing is possible) an even heftier dose of angst in the process. The fanatic response has its downside, though: While being surrounded by a sea of peers singing along with every song can be invigorating in a club, the charm erodes considerably when put on tape. And, not surprisingly, just about every nook and cranny of MTV Unplugged is, well, plugged with the voice of the fan, which sometimes carries whole segments. This treatment elevates the anthemic "The Good Fight" but curtails Carrabba's punch on "Again I Go Unnoticed." Diehards are unlikely to be deterred, but casual Confessional-ists might prefer sticking to the studio versions. Adding dimension to the package, however, is a bonus DVD containing the original broadcast in its entirety.

Chris is my new hero. His music touches me in a way that no other artist ever has. I recommend you give this cd to someone your really love and care for.
it might be decent. but due to the fact that they cant, they ruin an other wise great cd. stick with his other studio albums(they are all unplugged anyways.)
This is one of the best cd's ive ever bought chris carrabba expresses himself so well and this band sounds amazing especially for a live concert. The bonus dvd is another reason you have to buy this cd.
I have all of Chris's other CD's, this is a must buy [as are the other ones]. On the first song he sounds a little nervous, but the crowd is surprisingly in tune - number two, The Best Deceptions, is in my opinion the best track - I didn't think so until I heard two minutes in when he sang "away". Chris is once again amazing.
Dashboard to me has an uplifting spirit in their music and i relate to them in many different ways... in my opinion Dashboard is one of the best out there and will really climb the charts.. Chris is amazing and very talented.. all in all.. THEY KICK POPS A$$ OUT OF THE WATER!"
This CD DVD combo is worth the money and more! Thats right, you get the concert on audio for your CD players, and DVD, so that you can see the real thing for yourself, for less than a regualar CD costs! Chris Carrabba is awsome, next to his trusty band, the band comes to your house. Go ahead, crank it up, the neihbors will like it so much, they come over to listen, than buy one ofr themselves. Dashboard Confession MTV Unplugged is a must buy!
