Product Description

DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL MTV Unplugged v2.0 (2003 UK limited edition 2-disc [CD/DVD] set featuring live recordings and footage from their unplugged performance for MTV with fold-out picture sleeve inlay)

Amazon.co.uk

The MTV Unplugged concept was probably invented with someone like Florida singer-songwriter Chris Carrabba (aka Dashboard Confessional) in mind. Carrabba's relentlessly sad, impossibly frail acoustic songs--which effectively spawned the emo-core genre--have given alienated, cardigan-wearing guys and gals a snappy soundtrack to their pain. Dropping the heavily-inked guitarist amid his flock captures both the intimacy and awkwardness propelling Dashboard Confessional's best songs. Indeed, whether Carrabba is flying solo or is joined by a band, his MTV Unplugged--presented as a CD with an accompanying DVD--ranks as one of the most interactive sets ever; the fans know every single word to every single song and they sing their hearts out, sometimes completely hijacking the choruses. From opening number "Swiss Army Romance" through to "Screaming Infidelities", the assembled holler themselves hoarse in a glassy-eyed solidarity that would be eerie if it weren't so sweet. The sing-along aspect might be a drawback for fans searching for pristine live versions of studio recordings, but then again, Dashboard Confessional's music is nothing if not communal. --Kim Hughes

I can understand why some don't like this, especially when sometimes the quality vocals are slightly unheard above the sound of the crowd.
But the fact is that any fan of Dashboard will know the songs really well already, and so hearing the crowd in my view only really adds to the atmosphere and provides different versions of familiar tracks: such as on Hands Down and Again I go unnoticed where there is a more rocky aspect.
The standout track is Swiss Army Romance, which is awesome however you hear it. But there isn't a bad track on this album.
The fact that the CD also features the performances on DVD is also very appealing...

Without a specific DVD or video by Chris and the DC boys, i was influenced into buying this by the prospect of getting some good, lengthy live footage on the DVD, unlike the short, rather pointless footage on 'A mark, a mission, a brand, a scar'. But, having bourght it now, i have no regrets.
The CD contains a great live set with a brill performance by Chris. The soothing and relaxing tones make it great for those chillout days and evenings. All the favourite songs from the albums are on there, and there's also some of the excellent older songs from the EP's, 'Remeber to breathe' and 'So impossible' to name just two.
The highlight though, as i expected, is the DVD. It's of a lengthy session, played to a small crowd. It contains pretty much the same set as the CD (i think), and shows the band realy enjoying the music they're making so brilliantly.
I'd recommend this to any Dashboard fan, especially if you havent had the chance to see them live yet. Obviously the atmosphere's better live, but this CD + DVD makes a good substitue for when the band aren't touring the UK.

Chris Carrabba is what I would term a musical genius. His lyrics are as poignant and romantic as you can get and his musical flair oozes confidence and passion. He combines perfect lyrics with melodies and hooks to die for.
This album is worth every penny.

With Chris Carrabba's newest full length release he brings with him Mike Marsh, Dan Bonebrake and John Lefler, previously only heard on a handful of tracks on their newest full length album "The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most". Although originally starting up Dashboard Confessional as a solo project Chris has further widened his fan base, adding bass guitar and the unbelieveabley talented Mike Marsh on the drums to some old classics such as So Impossible and Remember To Breathe, in the same way the old songs on the new Summer's Kiss EP have been revamped, giving a more upbeat and positive atmosphere around the same depressing words spoken passionately and sometimes screamed along with the crowd who don't miss a word. John Lefler adds subtle but amazingly effective backing guitar and even piano underneath Chris' cutting voice and amazing stage presence, which seems to have the crowd fixated on him as he stands back from the microphone to let them sing the chorus on a few songs. Listening to this cd is like being at one of their concerts, hearing everyone sing along as loud as they can whilst still being able to hear Chris singing clearly
It's amazing to see how far Chris has come since leaving Further Seems Forever to playing on MTV and he has gained more and more popularity and this is a must have for any true Dashboard fan but if you haven't yet heard of Dashboard Confessional then you may want to hear their full length albums first. Also the american version comes with a full DVD of the set which I strongly recommend for those dedicated fans. If you know what to expect from this band then you definately won't be disappointed and it still has a couple of old songs which he's chosen not to play with a full band like The Swiss Army Romance. This is definately worth the money even if you pay just for the new version of Hands Down which is incredible.

I found myself driving along screaming shut up to the horrible yanks singing in the back ground just got very angry at an album that would have been great listening to a band that frequent these shores hardly at all live.
If you want music then dont buy this, there are not any rarities and at one point Chris Carraba plays to his prepubescent crowd saying things that make you cringe!! "this songs about the best date I ever had" then the girls all go "ahhhhhh" SHUT UP CROWD!!!!!!

Firstly, the CD/DVD is amazing and is worth the money many times over. The DVD is a full length presentation of the unplugged session (which the audio CD is taken from), and is watchable in it's own right over and over again. Think of it as buying a DVD with a free CD, that makes more sense to me.
I was interested to see someone else had made the connection between the quality of this unplugged session and the nirvana session in 1994. They are both masterpieces of sincerity.
Dashboard Confessional create a all-in-it-together atmosphere of understanding and sharing of joy and pain. it's kind of like talking to your best friend in -your- hour of need
Kurt Cobain creates the uneasy tension, which is like watching him through a secret camera, playing songs to himself on his bedroom floor in -his- hour of need.
They are both amazing for very different reasons, and both should occupy prime positions on your CD rack.
