I have found myself listening to this album almost everyday.

I like the whole thing, but I love Keep me in the open with the female vocal thrown in at the end. I miss the guitars that are present in the live version, but this is unplugged after all!

DSFS has the subtle first chorus and then it explodes at the end like we all want it to.

I think the song that has grown on me more is “persevere”, hearing the backstory just makes it that much more powerful.

Still unbeaten life is just a great song, period.

Well dang. I was hoping it was awful so I wouldn’t have to justify buying another album. :slight_smile: Might have to go on my Xmas list.

As someone who has sought out various live/session performance online, I was a little underwhelmed by the MTV Unplugged record. Don’t get me wrong, the orchestral and brass adds a lot, but having listened to the Triple J Like A Version performance of ‘Blood’ and the Bloodworks Live Studio performance of ‘Persevere’ I found myself wanting more.

That said, ‘Still Unbeaten Life’ is phenomenal.
