2 stars I bought this CD several years ago mainly because of two reasons - it was tagged "nice price" (I paid only 3 EUR) and it contained several songs that I lacked in my collection, notably "Mad Love Is Coming", "Radar Love" and "Twilight Zone".

Only when I put it in my player had I realized that this was a live album, recorded in acoustic "unplugged" fashion (quite popular during the 1990s when it was recorded). Remembering their "bigger than life" heavy rock sound with some irresistible prog leanings from the early 1970s, I was disappointed to hear their hits melted down to a singalong pop crowd pleasers. This is all very nice, optimistic and light-weight but I expect something more from music.

Still, no album containing "Eight Miles High" can be assessed as totally bad, especially when it is nicely performed in acoustic set. Hence, I give "The Naked Truth" simple 2 stars - unless you are a collector, you won't miss much if you bypass this album. That is the naked truth.


P.A. RATING: 2/5
