Limited four disc (two CDs + two DVDs) package from the platinum-selling hard rockers that includes audio and video from two full live sets, one acoustic and one electric. Somewhere In The Stratosphere includes performances from a Washington state concert and their most recent Anything And Everything: An Acoustic Evening With Shinedown tour. Shinedown's live performances (both full power and unplugged) give an unsparing look into the soul and psyche amidst a fierce musical attack that, even in its quieter moments, vibrate with the passion, energy and focus of a band with high-minded ideals and limitless ambitions.

Thankfully though this fantastic four disc set is the next best thing to actually being there - Shinedown deliver two simply superb performances, one electric full of passion and energy, the other an acoustic show full of poignancy and emotion.
Both performances showcase a band on real top form, I personally prefer the acoustic show as you can hear the raw emotion in Brent's voice better, ahead of the crunching drums and guitars that accompany an electric show. (The acoustic performance of Simple Man is to die for, by the way)
Shinedown deliver all of their major hits from their three studio albums, that of course includes the massive single "Second Chance" which spent eleven weeks on top of the rock charts stateside. (Lyrics from this song also provide the title of this album)
They even manage to get away with including a cover version of the FooFighters track "Times Like These," which actually suits the acoustic version really well.
In summary, if you like your rock hard, loud and melodic, Shinedown are a band you don't want to miss.
"Somewhere In The Stratosphere" captures them at their stunning best and I strongly recommend this CD/DVD set.
Acoustic set is the interesting one with covers of the Foo Fighters' "Times like these" and the Beatles' "With a little help from my friends" (done a la Joe Cocker). Some of this works better than the rest. Doing "Devour" acoustically is a mistake but "Fly from the inside" and "Sounds of Madness" work surprisingly well. "Simple man" and "Shed some light" are the standout tracks in a varied, high quality set.
One minor beef. There is very little interaction between Brett Smith and the audience during the electric set - the band just gets on with playing the songs which, in my opinion, is no bad thing. The acoustic set is a completely different story - literally. Brett explains the background/inspiration to all of the songs which can be useful but he does tend to go on a bit and veer into a bit too much pseudo-philosophy and mawkish sentimentality which adds at least 15 unnecessary minutes to the running time.
Don't let that put you off buying this though - the CDs would be worth the purchase price alone.
I only stumbled onto Shinedown about a year ago, when I saw a video clip for "Simple Man", and gotta say been hooked ever since. It led me to buy their entire catalogue and see them twice in concert this year whilst they were in the UK.
This band give everything on stage, and the Cd's and DVDs are a true reflection of all the hard work this band put into their performances. From Brent's vocal range to Barry's Bad-ass drumming, every single song will get you singing out loud, fist thrown in the air.
This box set is a must have item for any Shinedown fans collection, and if you are into Rock music in general, then give Shinedown a try cause I think you won't be disappointed.
