Mar 12, 2011Evanescence's sophomore album, The Open Door, may be overly produced, but it's attractive for that matter. However, I'd hardly qualify TheEvanescence's sophomore album, The Open Door, may be overly produced, but it's attractive for that matter. However, I'd hardly qualify The Open Door as a full rock album, sadly enough. Actually, Evanescence aren't really a "real band" anymore either. As much as I adore the lovely frontman, the sound seems to rap around Lee herself most of the time. The album's lead single, "Call Me When You're Sober", is one of the only tracks you actually hear the band's "all". Another problem within the band's sound is their similarity between eachother.
The album's ballad tracks, "Like You" and "Good Enough", are lovable for their in-depth lyrical content, but while the sound is unique, they're lackluster in the ability to relate to. The album's standout track is "Lithium". It's a wonderful flashback to their previous album, lyrically. While the track is certainly ballad-worthy, it has a beautiful "gothic rock" melody.
Overall, The Open will please hardcore Evanescence fans, and maybe even fans of the album's unique sound. However, mainstream listeners might find it difficult to accept Evanescence's new sound.… Expand
