Nice effort by Ben Moody and the gang. It's quite enjoyable once I stopped comparing Carly to Amy ...and really listen to the individual tracks holistically (lyrics, guitar riffs, etc.). I'm sure with time they will find their own uniqueness. My favorite track is "Paradigm" and "I Am Only One". Since Evanescence's last album was so long ago ...It definitely fills the symphonic gothic rock void!

This CD is awesome, I'm listening to it right now well playing Red Dead Redemtion (buy that game) but anyways this is a great cd. I have to admit when I first heard about this group I hated the very concept of what is esentially Evanescence with a different singer. I don't watch Idol but I didn't like the thought of Smithson, turns out I owe her a huge apology because she is awesome.

I wouldn't compare them to Evanescence directly but if you like that type of music and can actually listen to this album with an open mind I think you'll like what you hear.

This is a funny and rather sad album. The majority of the artists are those that for various reasons droppped out of Evanescense and vocally unhappy at having been left behind. Here they prove that they can sound exactly the same as the first album from their previous band without the other band members. But unfortunately, they do sound exactly the same. So there is nothing new here at all. Well, not exactly, as the vocalist is not as good. Bascially, this is a tribute band at that point, though I do not think that was what they had in mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Debut May 11 2010
By MusicLover - Published on Amazon.com
I was a little iffy on Ben Moody's new project at first. Upon first listen there's no doubt that they sound a LOT like Evanescence, down to Carly's voice. However, I decided to change the way I listen to the album and look at it this way... Ben helped with the music of Evansecence's first album, so of course he's going to sound the same in his new band... that's his sound.

Secondly, I loved "Fallen," it was a brilliant album, but Evanescence is growing in a different direction, and if I give "We Are The Fallen," a chance, I can have the best of both worlds. Ben's sound with WATF and Amy's lyrics and voice with Evanescence.

Finally, it's about the music. If the music is good, then listen to it. This album carries on the sound that was introduced to the world with "Fallen," but into a new decade, with a new singer, and attitude. I think WATF has a lot of potential, and "Tear The World Down," is a good start and worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fallen, again. May 11 2010
By A. Grace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My sister said it all. I was listening to this album on my iPod, and she walked into the room. "Listen," I said, "it's this new band called We Are The Fallen." "Oh," she said, "I thought it was Evanescence."

Subtle differences between the two? Creative evolution? Sure, there's some of that, but really, listen to the sound clips, and essentially you hear "Evanescence Part Two." The good news is that if you adore the old "Fallen" sound, and if you're not holding an artistic grudge against the Ben Moody/Amy Lee split (of which I know no details, so I can't comment), you're going to enjoy this album. This is not just hard rock, but the hard rock that Ben Moody makes beautiful, magnified by strings and softened by piano. The lyrics haven't changed much, either, still dramatizing the darker side of relationships ("The nightmares I find here/All my tears pull me through hell again," "When the moonlight sings the darkness brings me back to die with you," etc.). Eh, whatever. I always listened to them for their music, anyway.

The one real drawback for me is something I almost hate to say, but here it is: Carly Smithson is not Amy Lee. I don't dislike her voice; in fact, she's quite good. But her style feels like an attempt to *be* Amy, so of course she falls short just as anyone else would. (Particularly, Carly's highest notes sometimes sound a bit shrill, more hollered than belted.) Even when striving to emulate someone else, though, her talent shines through. I hope that, in the future, she will emerge with her own vocal identity.

Personal favorite moments: the sweetly loyal, power-ballad-esque "I Will Stay," the pop-style percussion in the verses of "Without You," the lovely strings-laden outro of "Bury Me Alive," and the simplicity and tender vocal harmonies of "Sleep Well, My Angel." Personal creepiest moment: the perfectly rendered, chaotic mood of "St. John."

All in all, if you're an Evanescence fan and know what you're buying, you won't be disappointed. Probably a more accurate band name would be Still Fallen. This "new" band of Ben Moody's doesn't sound all that new, but I liked the old band just fine, so I have no trouble enjoying "Tear The World Down."

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, Dark, Hypnotizing Feb. 12 2013
By TheJackal86 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Words really can't describe how much I love this cd. I went in with moderate expectations having only listened to "Bury Me Alive" and "Burn", which I put on my mp3 player over a year ago. I finally decided to buy the full cd during my desire for rock bands with female vocalists. Out of the couple bands that I listened to (Garbage, Evanescence, Flyleaf, Paramore, and even Halestorm) We Are The Fallen is by far my favorite. I know their sound is very similar to Evanescence and the band is formed of ex-Evanescence members (besides Carly Smithson), but the overall sound as well as the songs go so much further for me. The album is near perfection, aside from track 5 that I don't particularly care for.

I highly recommend this to anyone, as it's probably one of my favorite albums ever. By the entire album as well, not just a few songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, all around impressive debut for this band Feb. 15 2012
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
1st i'm going to address the issue that they sound like evanescence. u had 3 former band members leave to team up with american idol talent carly smithson and bassist marty o' brien to form "we are the fallen." obviously they are going to sound similar because they are producing the same type of music from their old band. none of that really matters though, because the only important question to ask is "is the band any good?" well the answer is a resounding YES. i have evanescence's newest album and amy lee seems to be taking a new direction with her music and her new band members. it does sound different and i can't say that i really like where she's going with it. that being said, WATF is an excellent band. john lecompt, ben moody and rocky gray sound really good together and in my opinion, are far more talented than their former band's newest members. ben was smart to seek out carly. while she doesnt have quite the vocal range of amy lee, there's no question that she's got talent and can sing. her voice is perfect for the type of hard rock/gothic metal songs filled with a mix of piano, chorus, and synthesizers that WATF crank out on their CD. her husky voice resonates throughout each song; she definitely plays to her strengths and never forces anything. even in the piano filled "sleep well my angel" she displays a broad and talented vocal range. i really can't see any other girl front-running this band. there isnt a song i dont like on this album, but the highlights are "tear the world down", "bury me alive", and "sleep well my angel." if u liked the type of music in evanescence's debut "fallen" album, then this CD will almost surely entertain you. i hope WATF continues to make more albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why do people say they sound just like Evanescence? April 7 2012
By Arseface - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Honestly, if I had to guess, it would be that they listen to little other than the singles.

A lot has already been said about this album, and a lot of the criticisms are, in my opinion, very unfair. Sure, the title is a bit of a jab at Evanescence, but perhaps it's deserved. Whatever they were trying to say about Evanescence is AT LEAST backed up by a more mature, well-composed, longer-lasting and far better album than anything from Evanescence. This is certainly Moody's best work, and he has found members that better fit the style he wanted previously.

Since people are so insistent on comparing artists to one another, I suppose I'll do the same. THIS band... sounds far more like Within Temptation than Evanescence. Yes, I know, Carly Smithson and Sharon Den Adel sound nothing alike, but look past that. The music behind the singing in Tear the World Down isn't just background noise like it was in Evanescence. It's more demanding, less repetitive and much more unique. Not only that, the instrumentation actually shines as the main attraction of the title track, "Tear the World Down" , which is the last and easily the strongest song on the album. The rest of the album could do with a bit more variety, but individually, they are all good, so the album is truly without filler or duds, which were undermining Evanescence and Moody's credibility as decent songwriters in the past. The split was needed, the drama... not so much.

I really look forward to the next album, and hopefully all of the drama will subside because it really bothers me that people will shun the obviously superior music just because of a little disagreement in the past... But it also would have been nice if the band members didn't keep the drama alive by choosing such a faux pas for a name. Oh well...
