Evanescence is a new band to most people, yet their song bring me to life from their new album fallen stayed number one in uk charts for many weeks. I personally love their music, because of they combine rock music with female vocals(Amy Lee). All songs of their album fallen are great.
What is your opinion about them?
Yeah, i'm a big fan. I just love the power that's in the songs, without compromising on emotion.
I disliked Bring Me To Life (the single) though to be honest, but the album was great.

I love track 9 'hello' on the album, it's very haunting, perhaps not as much as 'my immortal' but near enough.

I really really like Evanscence. I think Amy Lee has an excellent recording voice (not so good live) and their songs are superb. I do however prefer the band Nightwish who has a very similar style to Evanescence, but with better songs and a better lead vocalist. They are really fantastic, get some of their songs!

I think they're great! And they are not really angry young Americans. I heard they met at Christian camp. You can hear their religious side in 'Tourniquet' ( don't know what number that is on the album). Its a really good song and the fact that they aren't just a typical rock band in any sense, has impressed me.
You see..there's a problem with that. You say they are a rock band. I'm sure what you meant to say was 'Commercialised pop band with poor vocals and an almost non-existant guitar line'. Rock bands play at Reading festivals, and Evanesence have never played Reading, have they. If they did, i'm sure they'de get about 10000 bottles on stage, just as Good Charlotte did at Reading 2003 (classic moment ). If they're still around in 10 years or so, they gain my respect, as that's the ultimate test for an 'artist', to prove they are not a fad.

AGGGGHHH!!! What do you mean 'recording voice'. A band should not have to rely of studio technology to make them sound good. The live voice is the really important measure of talent, not how much crappy technology the band can afford to use.

The lead singer has a good voice but their overall sound is too nu-metallish with quite a bland and disengaging guitar play, maybe i'm being a bit harsh comparing them to bands far greater.

I like Evanescence - some of their songs are a bit samey and I'm not that big a fan of distorted guitar, but I love My Immortal because of the violin intro, and Hello because of the lyrics. I play the violin so I tend to go for songs with good violin solos (Vanessa Mae!) I have odd music tastes - they range from classical to Weird Al Yankovich to Coldplay to Jpop (I'm doing the Neon Genesis Evangelion main theme for my GCSE solo performance and loving it!)

In terms of downloading music I agree that people should go out and buy the CD where possible - I tend to find my music by doing an Altavista MP3 search (more laborious but the downloads don't take as long as they do on WinMX). For things like Weird Al and Neon Genesis Evangelion I downloaded soundtracks because it's difficult to get the albums in the UK and they're no longer in production - otherwise I tend to make tapes of other people's CDs as I don't actually have a Discman
