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.
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.
This is a must own cd for Evanescence fans. The main reason is because of the acoustic version of Going Under. The song played acoustically is simple, yet somehow it still retains its eerie feel and soaring vocals. If you play a little guitar like I do, this is a great track to play along too.
Heart Shaped Box is a good cover, although I personally didn't feel it was a good indicator of Amy Lee's singing talent. But a nice change of pace none the less.
The video for Going Under is very entertaining. It has a much darker and true to stage theme to it. If you have seen Evanescence in concert before, you will love this video.
Ok, I'm done talking...just get the CD.
