Canada's ultimate Renaissance man has bounced from grizzled heartland rock to soft-focus middle-of-the-road pop without employing a safety net--or even a consultant to warn him that his legion of fans is definitely split between the two genres. For the most part, Adams steers clear of his later power ballads on this acoustic (but hardly stripped-down) set, instead reaching back to concentrate on such choogling classics as "Summer of '69." Yes, he tugs at the ol' heartstrings with tunes like "Cuts Like a Knife" (which is given a new twist via the uillean pipes of Davy Spillane), but if it's out-and-out schmaltz you're craving, there's little to be had here. --David Sprague

The sound quality is first class. This MTV live show shows what a great live artist Bryan Adams really is. If you like Bryan Adams you need to add this CD to your collection.
I am not a huge Bryan Adams fan, I have always hated live albums, yet this is a gem of a record that I listen to from start to finish tapping my feet and singing along.
At first glance I looked at the tracks list and was more surprised by what was not included on the album rather than what tracks were. A large number of the more famed tracks didn't make the show and most of the listing were songs I did not recognise at all. I also had no recolection of the Unplugged being aired despite having enjoyed many others in the past.
As you have already guessed from my rating above I really need not have worried, I purchased the cd based on its reasonable price and have since loved this record like no other. The tracks are clearly carefully selected, each so very different but they all blend together and give you a different type of Bryan Adams experience. With a folk style Adams leads you through some of his best known starting with 'Summer of '69' and 'Cuts Like a Knife' but it is the other tracks which impress most on this album.
'When You Love Someone' and 'I'm Ready' are delicate and led perfectly by Adam's gravelled vocal, the pace is lifted by 'I Think About You' and after 45 or so minutes you arrive at the final two tracks, a version of 'Heaven' Adams performs alone for the first 2+ minutes with a rousing finale, and 'I'll Always be Right There' which are both simply brilliant.
The performance is note perfect and you loose all sense that this is a live recording until the crowd cheer between tracks. It is a cd now so familiar it is like a comforable armchair and is great company on long journeys or to relax with at the end of a long day.

The first track - Summer of 69 (which is also on 'so far so good') is excellent. Bryan plays the acoustic bass lines fantastically and it gets better after a couple of choruses when background drums are introduced, you just don't know what to expect with this album, instruments come in without notice and it is an enjoyable ride listening to the unplugged tracks.
'Back to you' starts with the high pitched 'out west' guitar style before Bryan begins to sing away the feel-good lyrics.
The crowd go wild when they hear the beginning acoustic notes of 'Cut's like a knife.' They know that one of the best performed tracks on the album is on the way.
After three feel-good all out pretty fast tempo tracks a soothing, low-medtempo 'I'm ready' comes on which really does hit the relaxing note that is a welcome change from the first three. Classical instruments are introduced and it the smooth tune flies swifty behind the perfect emotional voice of Bryan Adams.
Fit's ya good is kind of in between the first three and i'm ready. Another feel good, medtempo ballad sort of tune with good lyrics and guitar.
So thats the first five very good tracks - the next one ( when you love someone) is disappointingly slow moving and not in any way exciting but some music lovers like that sort of thing. The rest of the album carries on with a mix of ballads, slowtempo's, medtempos and fast tempo feel good tunes. Something for everyone, but theres not doubt that a fan of Bryans would like all the tracks.
