First off, Evanescence must be congradulated on such an awesome show and amazing cover art. Here's a run down of the concert, so people have an idea of what it sounds like.
The CD starts off with an intro where all you can hear is the fans screaming, and the synthesizer humming in the backround. The screams escalade, indicating the band has arrived, and sure enough a few chords are pounded out of the guitars and Haunted kicks off the set.
The bands thunders their way straight into Going Under without pasing for a second, and Amy's voice scrapes the bottom of her range, growling hoarsely before ascending into her usual range. At the end of the song Amy thanks Paris and they move on to Taking Over Me, which is basicly the same version as on the album except with the middle of the song extended slightly. Everybody's Fool comes next, certainly not their greatest preformance, but definately worth hearing to hear Amy's obvius aggression.
The band sweeps into a pano-lead cover of Korn's Thoughtless, which is pulled off beautifully and gives you a pumped feeling after listening to it. My Last Breath follows next, then Farther Away, an outtake from Fallen that many people will not have heard before. A great preformance, with an elongated begining and end, and an excellent mix of squealing guitars and tribal drums.
The band slows down for the next two songs, starting with Breathe No More, another outtake. The live version involves the whole band, not just the piano as it was recorded. Some of the acostic guitar has a flamenco feel to it, just adding to the texture of the song. My Immortal follows, beautifully sung. Amy stops singing the chorus the first time through and the crowd is audible, singing along to the piano.
The next song, Bring Me To Life, was the only song that I was disappointed with. It's sung out of key, and honestly I'm not a fan of John LeCompt's vocals, but there are good moments. The beginning of the song is mesmerizing, a slow piano intro playing as Amy sings saprano, the highest note almost sounding unhumane. From there it becomes steadily worse, but thankfully the band doesn't even pause before grinding into Tourniquet.
During the string ending of the song, Amy announces that the next song will be their last. Imaginary is performed, with a solid ending instead of trailing off like on the CD, but otherwise the same version on Fallen.
There's a long pause in the music and all that's heard is the fans' screaming for an encore. They get it, and the set wraps up with Whisper. Missing is included as an unreleased track, though it seems a little out of place after the loud live set.
The DVD contains all sorts of extras, and anyone with even a mild sense of humour will be rolling around on the flor laughing. All together this is an excellent CD/DVD package to have for any fan of Evanescence.
