Details Release Date: Mar 16, 2004; Lead Performance: Godsmack; Genre: Rock

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.
