I didn't think it would be much longer until WT put out an unplugged CD, and here it is. I was expecting a bit of a cheap cash-in, but bought it anyway being a huge fan. I'm pleasantly surprised; this isn't just another concert, but a delightful CD of beautifully performed acoustic music.
Even the heavier songs like What Have You Done get an amazing acoustic treatment, with great strings and Sharon is on top form. I only wish it were a double CD. The only track which I don't think totally works is The Cross, but it's all good.
The new song Utopia which ends the CD is a bit odd but is OK. It doesn't sound to me like WT, more like Bon Jovi, and is another duet. I hope this isn't the direction they're taking with the next album. I wish they'd left it off this CD as it's not part of the concert.
This is great for listening late evening and is a must have for WT fans, I'm glad I bought it, it's lovely even though we've heard most of it before.
