MTV Un­plugged: Live In Mel­bourne


Australian Guitar - - Cd Reviews - MATT DO­RIA

Gran­dios­ity pre­vails in the first Un­plugged ses­sion na­tively pro­duced Down Un­der. Its cherry on top an eight­minute re­dux of the se­verely un­der­rated “Still Un­beat­ing Life”, com­plete with a slow­burn­ing orches­tral sec­tion and res­o­nant per­cus­sion thump­ing in the back­ground, choice cuts from the Go Far­ther In Light­ness al­bum are given a vi­ciously en­thralling coat of fresh paint. Glassy keys, vi­brant gui­tars and hair­rais­ing strings flour­ish el­e­gantly while front­man David Le’au­pepe glides over them, leap­ing at will be­tween daz­zling grace and mighty swag­ger. In­ti­mate, in­tri­cate and fiercely poignant, this is far more than your av­er­age live LP.
