|4. Going Under (Video)|
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 ›
