There are maybe five music videos I like that were made after 1996, but the one that comes with this CD single is quite respectable. It's still chopped up and doesn't fulfill its potential; Lee and co. commit themselves a great deal in live performance and the video could have captured that better. But the camera and editing trickery are kept to an acceptable level and the energy of the song comes through well enough.
This single comes highly recommended.
I suppose some fans will pick this enhanced CD-Single up for the video of "Going Under," but for me the chief attraction here are the two acoustic songs. Moody plays the guitar while Amy Lee shows off her pipes on an acoustic version of "Going Under" and then a cover of Nirvana's "Heart Shapped Box," done for a radio station. Can you imagine that once upon a time you could go see Evanesence for five bucks? But then who would have thought that a 14 year old boy would have heard a 13 year old girl playing a Meat Loaf song on the piano at a Christian summer camp and started writing songs together. There is also a radio edit of "Going Under," so there is also the minor benefit of not duplicating the opening track of "Fallen" on this single.
Final Note: There are acoustic versions of both "Bring Me to Life" and "My Immortal" out there as well for you to track down. They are equally worth the procurement effort.
But what makes this particular CD-single so attractive is that it has a couple of acoustic songs by Evanescence, harkening back to days when it was just Amy singing and Ben Moody playing guitar. Well, he is gone now and when you hear these songs in concert they have all been given a Goth metal makeover (if you caught Evanescene doing "My Immortal" on Letterman last night and caught how the band comes in with crashing guitars at the end instead of the synthetic strings we hear on the "Fallen" album, or have caught them on their recent concert tour, then you know exactly what I mean). Here we simply have Moody on guitar while Lee shows off her pipes, first on Moody plays the an acoustic version of "Going Under" and then a cover of Nirvana's "Heart Shapped Box," done for a radio station.Read more ›
First cool thing they give you is an acoustic version of "Going Under" which is so good. I was skeptical at first because I thought this was one of those songs that only sounded good with a hard feel to it. I'm happy to say I was completely wrong. I think the reason why this version works is because it allows Amy's vocals to come through clearly and crisply. Don't get me wrong though, the album version of the song is great when you want to rock out but this acoustic version is perfect if you're in more of a chill mood.
The second reason you should buy this CD is the "Heart Shaped Box" Nirvana cover. Sure, a cover of this song will never be as good as the original but they came as close as anyone can come. Amy changed the sound of the chorus a little and shortened it to 2 "Forever in debt to your priceless advice"s instead of 3. I was very happy with the change mainly because I don't like it when a group covers a song and sings it exactly the same as the original. I mean, what's the point of that? So, if for no other reason, buy this CD to hear a cool Nirvana cover.
