An interesting idea

"Take one of Christian rock's hardest rockers and force them to play unplugged - a recipe for certain disaster in most cases. In this case, it's not a total failure though. Although Skillet could have done better than try to exactly copy their hard rocking songs on acoustic guitar, they do a good job. The only song that gets a real overhaul for the acoustic treatment is "You Are My Hope", and even that really stays pretty true to the original. Plus it seems like the guitars were miked rather than plugged through the system (thus the "unplugged" concept, I suppose) which means they sound rather thin at times. For the price though, it's a good deal. It's a shame they didn't just do a regular concert video because these guys can ROCK when everything's going. Maybe they can do it next time. Included on the DVD are a few pictures and the "Best Kept Secret" concept video."
An awesome DVD that introduces you to a new Christian band!

"I got this DVD free in the mail not knowing it was coming. So it just all of a sudden plopped into my hand. What's cool was that i just got my first surround sound system so I had a chance to test this out. It sounds awesome! The picture quality is alright, its a sight for sore eyes. The features are nice too. Skillet is a group that I recommend checking out. They are often said to sound like Marilyn Manson, I will agree, but only the sound. They also sound like Orgy, with the electronica sounds. Well anyway, get this DVD, then buy "Alien Youth" the album, because it is sure to rock!"
A Fresh Approach

"Ok, first off, Skillet does not sound like Marilyn Manson, and they are not a new band. This is a few unplugged songs they did after the release of "Alien Youth," their fourth original album.
While the DVD is good, it is rather short. It left me wanting a little more. But while Skillet is usually seen on stage using a pretty good amount of electronics to fill their sound, it's fun seeing them in a different setting like this. A must for any true Skillet fan, but nothing I'd rush to get if you're just curious."
