Evanescence, not much has changed in the past 10 years. Their self titled album is much of the same as before, emo radio rock that appeals to pre-teen girls and confused teenage boys. This album is just bad. It’s emotionless, it’s empty and it’s uninspiring music that is just background noise for Amy Lee to spill her guts over. While she may have a decent voice, it doesn’t save my ears from the annoying whining of heartbreak and love lost. It’s just the same irrelevant and boring song over and over again, recycled and reused for the next wave of Hot Topic goons to drool over.
It’s as if I was listening to the soundtrack to the latest “Twilight” movie. Disgusting. I mean the music doesn’t do ANYTHING remarkable at all. Nothing was catchy, heavy or even good in an acoustic sense. Of course there was the “I’m playing piano and singing my heart out” song but even that was trash. At least Loutallica‘s LULU was semi-interesting. This was just boring on all levels. So just spare your time and money and skip this one.
