  1. She might be unplugged--but she's still electrifying.
  2. For once, Unplugged largely leaves Keys' runaway careerism in the dressing room, where it belongs. [14 Oct 2005, p.148]
  3. This self-assured, illuminating "MTV Unplugged" performance underscores Keys' boundless passion for her craft. [15 Oct 2005]

    A stellar set. [Nov 2005, p.135]
  5. Stands as an apt reminder that she is the finest soul talent of her generation. [Dec 2005, p.152]
  6. The problems in this 72-minute package come chiefly when the exquisite singer-songwriter moves to what you'd think would be the creative heart of the album: material that isn't on her earlier CDs. [9 Oct 2005]
  7. This recording bursts with sweet soul that seems to feed off the adoring crowd.
  8. I’m definitely recommending Unplugged--with reservations, but it’s still a recommendation--but damn, I just wish the fun Keys seems to have on stage would translate more clearly to record.

    This is an amazing album. Alicia has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. She shows strengh and love, nothing else is needed.
