A year after topping the charts with ”Faceless,” Godsmack are back with this half-hour unplugged collection of new material and old favorites, The Other Side. On cuts like the dour opener, ”Running Blind,” the rock mainstays stick too close to the acoustic-grunge formula, but chilling remakes like ”Asleep” — a piano-ballad version of the 2000 screamer ”Awake” — make the bong-friendly CD worth the price of admission.
