‘Acoustic Sessions’ sound is ‘un-messed-with’comment (0)

November 7, 2013

By Rick Sharp

Those of us who are a little older remember the MTV Unplugged series. While the end musical result of “Acoustic Sessions” might be similar, any comparisons end there. If you’ve ever thought how cool it would be to sit down with Casting Crowns in your living room and just hang with them while they bang out some of your favorite songs from the last 10 years, you have an idea of what their “Acoustic Sessions” tour is all about.

So how do Casting Crowns’ signature songs sound as acoustic-only live versions? Un-messed-with. 

With all of the electronic “enhancements” stripped away, each song lives or dies on its lyrical and melodic merit, and their signature songs fare well in that light. This is pretty close to what the songs must have sounded like as they were being written. I didn’t detect any sonic enhancements in the live concert. This is what good musicians sound like when they jam without help from electronics.

As this “Acoustic Sessions” CD and tour are called Volume 1, we’re tantalized with the prospect of another acoustic record and tour. I and millions of others are ready.
