Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers came out with a CD a few years ago where he (Tom Petty) stated in the liner notes that everything heard on the album could be reproduced in a concert without the use of digital effects.

ended up with heavy radio airplay, especially cuts by Nirvana and 10,000
Maniacs (Natalie Merchant). I find most pop music to just be way over
produced i.e. too many special effects. Underneath all the synthesized BS,
tricks and gimmicks, there's quite often a musical group with some talent.
The Unplugged series illustrated that and listeners responded. Too bad it
was so short lived. Pop today is even more over produced than it was in the
early and mid 90's.
All the best,
