First up, let’s manage our expectations: this is Steel Panther, the cock-rock resurrectionists, doing a live acoustic set and it is no MTV Unplugged in New York, an album that still, after 20 years, sets the benchmark for rock bands going acoustic.  Why the metal “parody” group decided to go acoustic is a question that will confound music historians for generations to come, as producing a satisfying acoustic set poses major risks for any band, let alone one that relies on the bombast of amplified guitars to carry their image, and Live From Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage is a record that runs the full gamut from good to ugly.
