Is It Any Good?

This entertaining reboot offers a chance to watch musicians perform live in smaller, iconic venues with more intimate settings. The simplicity of each show allows for the appreciation of the music and lyrics without a lot of additional hype.

As in prior seasons of the series, the performances act as promotional devices, especially when they're timed to coincide with a single or album release. But at the heart of it, MTV Unplugged offers a chance to witness the commitment each artist has to the purity of his or her music.
