”Unplugged” means you’re supposed to cut the electricity, not the juice. But Uptown stars Jodeci and Christopher Williams sound as if they were caught on a bad day of rehearsal. Worse, they endlessly plug themselves, sometimes in song (Jodeci more than others); they also heap praise on Uptown Records CEO Andre Harrell during between-song prattle. A muddled mess.
