About this album

On March 16, 2004 The Other Side, an acoustic EP was released from Godsmack. The album debuted at number five on the U.S. Billboard 200; this is a relatively high position for an acoustic EP. It included several previously released songs re-recorded as acoustic versions, as well as three new acoustic tracks. One new song, “Touché”, featured Godsmack’s first guitar player, Lee Richards, as well as John Kosco, who were at that time in the now defunct band Dropbox, The other two new acoustic tracks were “Running Blind” and “Voices”. The song “Asleep” is actually an acoustic version of “Awake” from the band’s second album Awake. Godsmack shifted from its “heavy” sound to a more mellow acoustic sound on this EP in the same manner Alice in Chains did in the Sap and Jar of Flies EPs, one of many similarities to Alice in Chains for which the band has been criticized.

In 2004, Godsmack opened for Metallica’s “Madly in Anger with the World tour”, and headlined the tour along with Dropbox. Afterwards, in Autumn 2004, the band played several acoustic shows to promote The Other Side, while at the same time continuing to open for Metallica.

    I also think they should make more music like this, so beautiful. Album needs way more attention than it gets.

    if they would play more shit like this, and less hard rock shit, they would be one of my favourite bands, that's for sure...

    One of the best acoustic releases from rock bands I've heard, along with One Cold Night by Seether and Southside Double-Wide by Sevendust.

    Can't believe its popularity is this low. [3]

    Unlike a large number of acoustic albums for bands, this is really, really good. And it doesn't sound like they're just repeating old songs. Work was put into this.

    Fantastic album. I've been listening to it in Apple Lossless, and it just sounds fantastic. Very much worth playing on a dedicated hi-fi system too!

    It's awesome, shame that only half an hour... Should be at normal LP length, then it would be one of the best albums ever. But it's still awesome :)
