Evanescence

“Fallen,” the second CD by Evanescence, continues in the vein of spiritual Goth, leading with the disc’s radio hit single “Bring Me to Life,” as well as a host of equally enjoyable songs. The band’s unique blend of dark moodiness and spirituality is suffused throughout the songs. Once again, Amy Lee’s voice is a powerful addition to the songs. The styles range from heavy, guitar-riff driven songs to softer songs driven mainly by Lee and a few instruments playing in the background. Each song is impressive and plays to a different feeling with little of the repetitiveness common to most current albums being released.
Of the 11 songs available, “My Immortal,” “Bring Me to Life,” “Tourniquet” and “Going Under” are the best tracks. Each of them is powerful and hard-hitting but still moving. “My Immortal” is Lee at her finest, and she grips the listener in a way that few songs have the ability to do. The rest of the tracks, though not as good as the previous four, are still good in their own right. They all have a unique feeling to them and can be listened to in nearly any setting. Evanescence has made yet another great album that continues to use its style of Goth and spirituality in a blend not often seen.
This originality may pay off for their campaign to win “Best New Artist” on Grammy night. It will be interesting to see if they can keep their talent consistent in future records.
