Editorial Reviews

The self-titled, third studio release from Evanescence, produced by Grammy winning Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Rush), contains the hard-driving anthems and introspective ballads the hard rock group has mastered since their breakout debut in 2003. The 12 tracks demonstrate the growth of the band's writing style and lyrical content.

Front woman Amy Lee says, "It's about freedom," when describing the album's first single, the hard-charging,"What You Want." Other songs include "Lost in Paradise," which Lee calls, "The most intimate song on the album" and "My Heart is Broken," a track driven by Lee's signature lyrics and piano playing.

Backed by the heavy guitar sound of Terry Balsamo and pounding drums of Will Hunt, the new album is powerful and aggressive. "We've been working on this music for a very long time and seeing it all finally come together is a really amazing feeling." Lee continues, "This album is about us and also our fans. We re combining the best of Evanescence with some new attitude and we re just dying to share it."

The deluxe album package contains four bonus tracks and a bonus DVD that includes the video for "What You Want," the making of the video, the making of the new album, and more!

I personally think too many people are jumping the gun to write reviews on this album. At first, I was unsure about the album as well. As previously mentioned by another reviewer, the standard album has been up on Spin magazine's website streaming for free for the past week, and I haven't been able to stop listening to it since the first day of its premiere. I'm almost sure the band took that step and slowly releasing all the songs to gain back their skeptic fan base. Once you get past the generic "What You Want" (which I still love,) and get over the disappointment that this album isn't the same old same from Evanescence it's truly soul enriching.

It's certainly different from anything they've ever done before. It's still Evanescence, it's still Amy Lee, but you have to remember it's a different band line up behind her, and they're trying to grow as a whole. Also remember, that initially this was suppose to be an electro-pop album, but Wind-Up scrapped it, and thus you get the album you hear before you.

There are still some dark undertones, but instead of being sad and emo-ish (which I'm not opposed to since I've been a fan of Ev since the days of the first LP and EP, Orgin, etc...) the album is more powerful. To me, with the new line up everything is more cohesive, and they feel like they're finally in a happy arrangement, and comfortable as oppose to the tension and anger you could sense before within the band.

Keep in mind Amy isn't a one trick pony, and she's always trying to reinvent her sound to show that she's an amazing composer, singer, and songwriter. I was even intrigued by the prospect of the original electro-pop idea, and was a little disappointed to see it had been tossed because I truly believe she'd be amazing no matter what she attempted.

(This is my original album review plus the deluxe stuff at the bottom.)

Five years later Evanescence is back in a big way. This self-titled album is hands down the band's most cohesive offering--featuring Amy Lee Hartzler's trademark vocals, big guitars, soaring choruses, full orchestra backup and a faster tempo drum. While the band initially went through more lineup changes after "Open Door," all of them (Balsamo, Hunt, McCord, McLawhorn) are back and it's clear they have all been involved in the process for this album. Instead of songs centered solely on Amy and her piano, the music is more complex and rich.

The more up-tempo drumming and fuller sound is actually what differentiates this album musically from "Fallen." And it's quite different from "Open Door" in that it lacks some of the experimental sounds that really put off some fans. However, while musically it's more reminiscent of "Fallen" this is not to say the band hasn't switched it up as they've added different instruments like harps and synth keyboards which really accent their sound. I do wish they had pushed themselves a little more out of the box musically though. Probably my biggest disappointment with the album though is the lack of ballads--like it or not, there is nothing more gutting than Amy singing power ballads in her haunting voice. Unfortunately, there's only like two songs that could be considered as such which is bad considering that's where Amy's at her best.

But really the biggest difference about this album is the tone. While still firmly in the gothic hard rock category, "Evanescence" sounds much less emo and depressing than its predecessors, and instead powerful and commanding.

I'm rating this product as a mainstream rock album with dark elements; in which case, I'd give it five stars for production quality and vocals. However, I will always miss their darker and "gothy" sound that their commercial debut, "Fallen," offers. I even enjoyed "The Open Door." I am not surprised that the band totally went much more mainstream with their third studio album, "Evanescence." More money is usually involved when artists/bands go this route, as well as more exposure. You really can't blame them for that, since the goal of being a musician is generally to gain as much exposure as possible. But by the same token, it's a risk when it comes to losing old fans and the sound you were once known for (though, die-hard fans will most likely stay loyal). But these artists/bands do tend to gain new fans as well. Anyway, enough about that! On to the tracks!

I'm not surprised that "What You Want" is the lead single. It's catchy and very radio-friendly. I would've guessed it to be the lead if I had never known it was. "Made of Stone" will most likely be a single with its equal hook. I predict "Lost in Paradise" to be one of the upcoming singles. I hope so because you can never not enjoy any of Amy Lee's piano ballads (which a few of them have become singles). This one is no exception. "Swimming Home" is an excellent track, despite its downtempo style. But it really captured my attention, and Amy Lee's vocals seem somewhat sultry in it. You can definitely hear more depth when it comes to the emotions and meaning of the track. "Swimming Home" and "Lost in Paradise" are definitely my favorites so far (I'm a fan of mysterious piano ballads and piano-heavy tracks). The rest of the tracks are all good just from the first listen, but they are somewhat similar to each other.

On the Subject of Ben Moody...
I have to say - I agree with you 100%. Though, I personally am not a fan of We Are the Fallen (I don't particularly care for Carly Smithson's voice)....I use to have a HUGE crush on Ben - even went so far as to wanting to buy the same Jackson he uses at one point in time - but in a way I think... Read More

Cover Art
Agreed. This...could be the cover of any given trance album. Looking forward to the music itself and seeing them in SF, though. I'm sure the songs will be more interesting than the cover.

So what happened to the electro-pop direction?
I've heard rumor that they're being saved if she ever does a solo album. I was actually a little disappointed they didn't go that route, and that Wind-Up made them start over! I was curious to hear them in a Portishead like relm, but the new album is still fantastic, and well worth the money.... Read More

This album is great!
I had no idea they were releasing a new album until I just stumbled on the video..... I'll be picking this up for sure, they haven't done my ears wrong yet. :p
