Where do I begin? I'm already a Shinedown fan so this may be a bit biased but this is the best bang-for-the-buck I have ever seen in my 30 years of buying music. The two DVDs are two complete concerts and more than three hours of video. The acoustic set is basically like a two hour episode of VH1 Storytellers, and Brent Smith's passion for Shinedown's music comes through. The set, including two DVDs and two CDs of the same concert, has most of their most well known songs and a few great surprises. Shinedown does a mind-blowing, stripped down version of the Foo Fighters' "Times Like These" and a fantastic "With a Little Help From My Friends" during the acoustic show.
I bought this in the PX here in Afghanistan and the past three hours watching these DVDs were the best diversion from the day-to-day grind I could have asked for. Shinedown did not disappoint, and I can't wait to see them again live when I get home. Great music, great band, great guys.

...much of the music in this concert came. I love Shinedown, they're my favorite band above all others and although I expected a lot of the songs to be touched up, I didn't expect it to be quite as much as the dvds had done. When I say this, I refer to the front man, Brent Smith's vocal performance. Two of my favorite songs, "I Dare You," and "Diamond Eyes" sounded like the studio album track was just being played over the video and having seen the band 3 times, I've never heard the vocals sound even close to similar to the album, since he usually sings around the higher notes of the chorus (while still sounding great.) I realize it's a harder song to sing but couldn't they have kept a more raw recording?
My other big complaint was that the songs just played one after another, nothing of Brent speaking in between. I realize that they'd never put all of the concert on the DVD but to have it jump from song to song with no transition in between just makes it feel rushed. I also own the band's earlier concert dvd, "Live From the Inside" which in my opinion (despite being a rougher cut and lower budget from the band's earlier days) is the superior between the two. As it gave me a connection and proper introduction to who these talented musicians were.
Anyways, I won't dwell on just the negatives; in fact, I'll move on.
The music all sounds fantastic, and the band shows off as they always do just how entertaining they can be on a stage in front of thousands. The light show is a spectacle of it's own as the band uses an entire arsenal of special effects to give the viewer the best experience they can. All in all, a great album, despite the setbacks mentioned earlier, I highly recommend it.

This concept and music/DVD combo's is one of the coolest things ever! The music is phenominal (who would have expected less?) and the live/acoustic and CD/DVD package is an off the charts idea. In a day and age where people frequently fail to deliver, hats off to Shinedown for coming through in a major way!!!

I initially had a hard time finding this product because it's listed as an audio CD rather than concert DVD. So let's be clear on what this is: a DVD of an acoustic concert in Kansas City, a DVD of an electric concert in Washington state, and audio CDs of each. Quite a value for the price!

I recommend watching the electric concert first. It absolutely rocks from start to finish, with really good video editing - a lot of care clearly went into this. This is a mature and confident version of Shinedown, full of power and theatrics befitting a live rock concert, but also a lot of heartfelt emotion, especially evident in both the vocals and the lyrics. I watched the whole concert in one setting, then immediately went back and watched some more of it, then watched the whole thing again the next day. It really permeated me.

Then I said, 'OK, let me try this acoustic thing', feeling somewhat wary that it would be wimpy. And indeed, when I started watching it, it did feel that way, like they wanted to rock but the acoustic instruments were holding them back. But I stuck with it, and am very glad I did. This acoustic concert perfectly complements the electric one, and puts the songs and the band in a whole new light. They set aside the pomp of rock stars, dress like gentlemen, and let their guard down, letting us see that they're sensitive people, artists who're comfortable sharing their real selves with the audience in an intimate way. This is very much heightened by Brent Smith's articulate presentations of the stories behind the songs, told with deep emotion and clearly strongly connecting with the audience, with many apparently almost moved to tears at some moments.

This is a special band, and this DVD/CD collection is a superb presentation of their artistry. Recommended to any fan of mature rock music, and certainly to all fans of Shinedown.

Admittedly, there's not a lot of new music here, but the interpretation, particularly on the acoustic version is new an refreshing. Although a huge Jasin Todd fan, the new guitarist Zach Myers is great and plays with tremendous passion. Great value and great performances.

I bought this recently and all i can say is wow.I listen to the acoustic set all the time and the acoustic dvd is awe inspiring.They are now one of my favorite bands of all time and I'm an old head.They play with near perfection and the emotion is beyond incredible and their sound is awesome.Some of the songs hit a personal note so deep in my soul it brings tears.The electric set is good too,but the acoustic is my favorite.This is an incredible deal and if you like any Shine Down song buy this.It will take your appreciation of this band to another level.
