This album is beautiful in itself, a complete masterpiece. If you want mainstream rock listen to Fallen by all means; it too was a great album, but the style of The Open Door completely deviates from that and opens into a style all its own. It's easy to fall in love with the tracks on this piece if you can accept them for what they are without attempting to mold them to fit Evanescence's older material.
Interestingly enough, I'm still not a terrible fan of the first single 'Call Me When You're Sober' ... it's got Amy Lee's voice, but not the soul that normally goes into the lyrics. This was mended for me by tracks like Sweet Sacrifice, Lithium, and Lacrymosa; beautifully composed and well thought out. And regardless of anything else that can be said of the album, it definitely has a haunting quality. For me this was punctuated and accentuated by the track entitled 'The Only One'; a masterfully compiled piece that sent chills down my spine. My favorite track, 'All That I'm Living For' is beautiful beyond words and I find that you can only appreciate it by listening to it; attempting to confine it to the written word just doesn't do it justice.Read more ›
"Sweet Sacrifice" is an excellent album opener complete with the intensity that Amy Lee's music tends to bring. "Call Me When You're Sober" is an amazing 1st single with a killer bass line by Will Boyd...this song is about a break-up, along with most of the songs off the album.
"Weight of the World" would make a great 4th single ( a-la "Everybody's Fool" ). Unlike first speculated, "Lithium" is not a Nirvana cover BUT it is the new "My Immortal"...a ballad to be proud of. The only song that consists of just Amy and a piano is the closing track, "Good Enough."
Other notables include "Snow White Queen," "Like You," "Lose Control," and "All That I'm Living For." But, as I said, this is an album...just as good as (or maybe even better than) "Fallen!"
Backing off from mainstream rock, this album embraces the darker side, with lots of the trademark strings and haunting vocals that fueled the popularity of "Fallen". The first single "Call Me When You're Sober" is one track that seems to be geared towards radio and video play, and boy, does it get played. The second single "Lithium" is a melancholy lament to a broken heart, and was reportedly inspired by an ex-boyfriend. When Lee sings "come to bed, don't make me sleep alone / couldn't hide the emptiness you let it show" you can also feel her pain.
Other tracks to note are "Sweet Sacrifice", although it ends abruptly just as you're getting into it; "Weight of the World", a possible single; "Cloud Nine" and "All That I'm Living For". The Millennium Choir again provides powerful back-up, and several tracks could easily pass for soundtrack music, especially "Good Enough".
Music fans looking for more mainstream tracks like the first single may be a little disappointed, but this isn't that kind of album. "The Open Door" is another powerful and emotional album, and although only time will tell if it can repeat the success of "Fallen", it's sure to be a hit with most Evanescence fans.

I absolutely love, love, love this CD. There is not a bad song on it. My only regret is that I didn't discover Evanescence until after the band broke up. Read morePublished on Sept. 17 2010 by amazgrl
