More Info:

The Christian Alternative scene of the 90's was one that seemed to have a hard time fitting in anywhere: far too curious and challenging for the CCM bubble, but it's not like 120 Minutes was filled with poetry to drum loops either. So somewhere in the middle sits this glorious album putting together two of the most mid-90's phrases around: Unplugged and Alternative. Songs of praise, reality, depression, joy, confusion, confession, invitation and separation fill this record by some of the best musicians of the scene. The original 1993 Brow Beat, Unplugged Alternative is hard to top. The album served as such an eye-opener to so many - simultaneously introducing our ears to good acoustic music, as well as to Michael Knott, LSU, The Choir, and others. Their quiet rebuking of legalism and abusive, rigid dogma was a turning point for a good many spiritual lives. The songs on this release had an undeniable impact on those in the 90's scene seeking something more... no, NEEDING something more. Espousing one poetic message of truth after another, Unplugged Alternative offered hope that maybe we had found that very thing our souls craved. Even if we couldn't wrap our heads around what we were hearing, we felt the powerful, emotional impact it was having on us as it resonated deep within us.
