Shakira's songs translate well to the format; in some ways Unplugged is her most muscular music yet.
I usually like unplugged recordings because an artist really show what (s)he has inside when (s)he is in a live situation with a basic orchestration possibility - no computer tricks.
What?, who can understand this when "Pies descalzos" gave her the oportunity to be where she is and brought her several hits (some of them bigger than the ones from "Donde estas los ladrones").

UNPLUGGED isn't Alice In Chains' first unplugged record; it's just the first official, MTV-sanctioned one.
MTV's unplugged series continues with the band that seemed very unlikely to lend itself to this format.
This session in my opinion, like that of Nirvana MTV appearence, affirms the bands mastery of songcraft and is a fitting tribute to a dearly missed man whos music will live on in the powerful and classic albums that he left behind.

 Alicia Keys MTV Unplugged - The CHUD.COM Message Boards
Hey guys I was just online today and noticed that the very beautiful and soulful Alicia Keys is going to have her very own MTV Unplugged performance next Friday the 23rd at 10:00pm.
Yeah man I totally avoid the whole corporate radio scene but one day I was driving around and heard her song on the radio and it had a nice groove to it.
But besides I think its great that MTV is expanding it's unplugged musical horizon (aside from Lauryn Hill a few years back) and including the likes of artists like Alicia Keys.

 CANOE -- JAM! Music - Artists - Alanis Morissette Album Review: MTV UNPLUGGED
On MTV Unplugged, Morissette's powerful, expressive voice and her diary-entry lyrics are perfectly complemented by a homey, comforting quilt of acoustic guitars, real drums, strings and organ.
As an added bonus, Morissette's set includes three previously unavailable originals, including longtime live favourite No Pressure Over Cappuccino (about her twin brother); an excellent cover of The Police's King of Pain that fits her like as glove; and a rendition of her hit Uninvited that was only available on the City of Angels soundtrack.
MTV Unplugged was likely intended to tide fans over until the next studio album but, as it turns out, it's the most natural and enjoyable record of Morissette's career.

There are three new songs on MTV Unplugged: "No Pressure Over Cappuccino," "These R The Thoughts," and "Princes Familiar," the two latter titles having been written for but not included on Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie.

 Dashboard Confessional MTV Unplugged
Let me first start by saying that I was tentative in approaching this review due to the fact that I have long believed that after Nirvana got Unplugged, MTV might as well have ended the series.
Quite often a good portion of the songs are sang entirely by the crowd and leaves me to wonder “how did MTV get an entire crowd that knows all the words to Dashboard Confessional’s songs?” I thought it would be easier to find 5 people who like Yanni.
Based on MTV Unplugged shows, if I were to rate this album (which comes with a DVD of the performance) on a scale of fingers, I’d give it a pinky, ring, middle, index and half of a thumb.

With only two studio albums to their credit, it may seem a bit early to go for an Unplugged re-run but the inclusion of two new Corrs-penned songs and a trio of previously unheard covers as well as the live greatest hits means there's something fresh to enjoy.
An unplugged session also establishes clearly that The Corrs, in danger of being perceived as pop puppets, are a real band who play and sing beautifully and can deliver the goods live.
usually, unplugged albums bring out different sides to artists but this to me ads whole new depth to their music.

Lauryn Hill has loudly (and justifiably) been declared a brilliant artist already in her young career, and MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 will do nothing to dissuade anyone.
Coming on the heels of a well-publicized period of depression and unhappiness for the ex-Fugees singer, Hill's reenergized outlook is plainly evident in this stripped-down performance--it's basically just Hill and her unplugged guitar--as well as the highly spiritual nature of the material.
In her MTV Unplugged she finds new ground.

In 1998, Lauryn Hill transformed popular music with the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, a multi-platinum record that set new standards for randb and rap, making her the standard bearer for a generation.
But instead of enjoying the fruits of her success, Hill has spent the last four years battling depression, business problems, and the crushing pressures created in the wake of her ascent to superstardom.
Bearing no resemblance to her past material, Unplugged consists solely of new songs, many of which sound like they were created on the spot.
