Amy's vocals are rich, powerful, and haunting. I like the band Garbage because of Shirley Manson, and I'd have to say that Amy blows her away. It should also be noted that her "best friend" is her guitarrist Ben does an excellent job on fusing rock with some of the other elements that come together in their music. This stuff is great to crank up. I can't recommend it any more highly.
"Fallen" is a solid collection of songs that not only rock, but carry strong vocals void of screaming and nonsence. "Bring Me To Life" was the monster single that brought them to the mainstream and it's still a great track no matter how many times its been overplayed. I didn't care for "Going Under" at first but it quickly grew on me. "Everybody's Fool" and "Haunted" are great too. "My Tourniquet" reveals the band's spiritual side and is a definite highlight. "My Last Breath" is awesome and with the exception of BMTL is my favorite rock track. "Fallen" also includes two stunning piano ballads *I'm a sucker for a good piano ballad.* "Hello" is very pleasant, but the star is "My Immortal." "My Immortal" is a stunning piece of work. I've heard a lot of people criticize it for its bland lyrics, but Amy Lee sounds amazing and the melody is breathtaking. I really hope this song takes off at radio...it's sorely needed. Over-all awesome rock album.
I'm not one of those people who over-anazlyze music and complain about certain artists or bands being too "Commercialized" *as many people have said about Evanescence* and to those people...get a life. Worry about something more important...like world hunger.
