Staind's three studio albums - the self-released Tormented, and their Elektra releases, the platinum-plus Dysfunction and the five-million-selling, #1 phenomenon Break the Cycle - exhibit a sonic fury and an introspective intensity that can be matched by few other artists. But underneath the aggression is a raw beauty that makes Staind one of the few rock bands whose songs take on a new and different power when performed acoustically. On July 16, 2001, Staind once again provided this in front of several hundred fans lucky enough to attend their concert for MTV Unplugged. The eleven-song Unplugged set on this DVD include stunning acoustic renditions of the hits "It's Been Awhile, " "Outside" and "Home, " along with two performances not seen on the MTV broadcast, "Pressure" and "Suffer", plus backstage interview footage form the taping. Also included are four music videos and behind the scenes footage. The MTV Unplugged DVD is the ultimate visual and aural companion piece from a band that has jettisoned the old rock rulebook and galvanized both fans and critics around the world. DVD FEATURES: Video: Complete Unplugged performance, including two songs not broadcast; original videos for "Mudshovel, " "Fade, " "Outside" and "Epiphany"; behind the scenes at the "Fade" video shoot; unplugged interview. Audio: Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound; stereomix. Extras: Complete Staind discography; lyrics.
