Then, nearly three years later, they re-appeared again. Somebody had finally discovered them and thrust them into the limelight and this was what they produced. I'd downloaded a demo version of this song and thought it was breathtaking...but remixed, with orchestration, I've got to say without a doubt, Bring Me To Life is one of the most amazing pieces of music I have ever heard. The desperation in Amy's voice is heart-wrenching, the guitars crunch and the string line soars. A lot of people don't seem to like 12 Stone's Paul McCoy's additional vocals, but I think they compliment Amy's haunting, pseudo operatic voice well. The bridge before the final climactic chorus sent a shiver down my spine. It's easily one of the greatest songs of all time.
The Bliss mix is great - without Paul's vocals you suddenly hear elements of the song you didn't realise were there (Amy whispering 'don't let me die here' had previously been lost on me). Farther Away is an amazing track. Again, the desperation of her voice and the stunning subtlety of their lyirics is amazing.
The single definitely loses something without the beautifully haunting Missing (as does the album), but it's still a great CD. If you appreciate why this song is so breathtaking, buy it immediately.
