EVANESCENCE Fallen

Wilytank
During my years in the government school system, while I was checking out bands that would sculpt my present ideology as a Christophobic death and black metal fan, my classmates were listening to music that passed itself off as metal but I found rather irksome. One of the most irksome was "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence. I did not like that the alleged gothic metal tones weren't even there, I did not like the simple and commercially streamlined riffing pattern, and I really did not like Paul McCoy's hip-hop/nu metal flavored guest vocals. A couple of years later, I've decided it's time to kill the weed by strangling it's root and give the album 'Fallen' a listen.

And right away, I can see my dislike justified. I'm greeted with these boring, uninspired, unvaried chug chords. For some reason, some people have gotten the impression that this album is gothic metal simply due to the orchestral instruments and Amy Lee's singing style, but if those elements were taken away everyone would call this alternative rock. In fact, those elements might as well be taken away because they come across as a gimmick to cover up how lame the guitar work is: all chug, zero substance. It doesn't help that all the songs are in this mid paced tempo, further increasing the boredom.

Also not helping are the stupid, angsty, tear-jerker lyrics which are not entertaining in the slightest. For that reason, I don't just hate this album for what it is but also for what it represents: whiny angst. This is a teen targeted theme and the reason why I didn't like it then is because I was above the idea of self-loathing so I didn't like the idea of the commercialization of self-loathing.

But alas, this was March 4, 2003. I would have been in the latter half of my 5th grade year, and the world would be worse than the month before. Yes, I suppose Amy Lee has some pipes, but that means nothing to me when she's a poster girl for angst. 'Fallen' is a very vapid album that is not worth any attention.

Evanescence is the self-titled third release from alternative/gothic rock/metal act Evanescence. The 2011 release is the first from the band since 2006’s The Open Door. Evanescence had a lot of commercial success since their 2003 debut, Fallen, but this had the rather unfortunate side effect that every female fronted metal act started getting compared to them despite the fact that many of them were releasing albums a long time before Evanescence and the even more important fact that Evanescence actually plays more in an alternative rock/metal style. Evanescence also seems to have become a generally reviled act within the metal community in particular, possibly because of the above, or maybe because of their more commercial tendencies than is generally accepted for a heavier band. Fallen, however commercial it may be, was a great album. The second, The Open Door, released after losing guitarist Ben Moody, who was one of the main composers, was not so much and I have to confess that with such a plummet in quality I lost what interest I had in the band. So Evanescence now returns to the music world with this album and against my better judgement I find myself interested enough to find out if they can return to form with this self-titled effort, although after The Open Door I came to this album without very high expectations.

In terms of style not much has changed since Fallen, the band is still a semi heavy alternative act with lashings of piano all the way through it. The guitars fit the alternative metal vein even though a good portion of the metal crowd will probably still outright deny that the band is metal (they are borderline admittedly), and the music is still very commercial.

Kicking the album off with its lead single, What You Want, and my worst fears are realised, Evanescence wasn’t back with a bang, and if anything they were beginning their comeback with what may just be the worst track they’ve ever put out. It sounds like it was written as a pop song, and then some heavy alternative metal style guitars were added to it. Musically this is a complete disaster. Imagine taking the vocal tracks of a one song and sticking them over the music of another song, preferably one at the other end of the musical spectrum. It just doesn’t work does it? And that’s exactly what we’ve got here only this track was actually intentionally put together like this. It was seriously almost enough to give up on the album there and then.

It’s a good thing I stuck with it though, as once the disaster of a opener is over the album does do, I wouldn’t call it a complete 180 degree turn, perhaps more like a 120 degree turn, and suddenly the album isn’t as bad as what I initially thought (and was reinforced by What You Want) it would be. It is still not exactly a great album and Fallen is still casting a shadow over everything the band has done since, but Evanescence is at least a stronger album than the very weak The Open Door. Ultimately though what impresses me the most about Evanescence is singer Amy Lee’s vocals and her piano playing. The piano actually adds a nice and interesting touch to what could otherwise be considered a pretty bland album. The songs are generally stronger than those on The Open Door, so it seems the band’s hiatus was not wasted as much as I want to scream about how much of a disaster What You Want is.

The album is not exactly the return to form I could have wished for but it is a step back on the right track for the band and they have at least come back stronger than they were before the hiatus. I do still however feel some apprehension at where they could go next as at the end of the day Evanescence is an album filled with mostly potential for good but also some really bad stuff. Did it have just that bit more consistency I think an above average rating would be appropriate but I have to take into consideration that What You Want is just the definition of a stinker and downgrade my rating to something more representative of a middle of the road release, which is ultimately most appropriate since the album does leave me with mixed feelings upon its conclusion. I think that Evanescence could go either way from here, either back to really delivering the goods in the field of alternative rock/metal or just push the boundaries of commercial influences in heavy music so much that they’ll lose what remaining credibility they have.

Fresh and accessible

If I have to describe Evanescence in simple words I might use the words fresh, tuned, good and accessible. Yeah, maybe that won’t interest to many people, especially those who think this is bubble gum rock, but I seriously advise a detailed hearing to this great production.

This production has a wonderful quality of sound, with fresh songs that have merge between heavy riffing guitars, piano and strings phrases and wonderful female vocals, not as operatic as Tarja Turunen but very good and dramatic. I don’t find any “gothic” reference besides the make up that Amy Lee started to use after she became famous.

Well, pay attention to the guitars, this guy was very clean and accurate to play and had great ideas and wonderful sound effects, very controlled and focus. While the melodic and dramatic voice of Lee fits great with any piano phrase, strings or heavy riffing. I found interesting songs like BRING ME TO LIFE, IMAGINARY, TOURNIQUET and TAKING OVER ME.

The production had a little electronic vibe, like a surrounding of atmospheric noises and electronic beats that helps to have a fresh mood through all the album. Please, don’t pass away this particular CD, because the compositions of Ben Moody who left the band just after the release of this production. 4 stars. One of my favorite commercial albums of this millennia.
