JoshDec 6, 2006Very addicting, fresh and new. Has a spooky vibe and is easily the best CD of 2006.

AdrianSDec 5, 2009I think this album is Amazing, Amy and the band did a great job. The vocals are as outstanding as Fallen's and even more powerful. Buy It!
Aug 23, 2011The Open Door turned out to be the perfect way to follow up Fallen. While Fallen was extremely over-produced, poppy and cliched lyrically, TheThe Open Door turned out to be the perfect way to follow up Fallen. While Fallen was extremely over-produced, poppy and cliched lyrically, The Open Door manages to be a big step in the right direction for Amy and the band. Without Ben to hold her back she shows her true artistic colors. While for the most part the guitars and drums are as stale as they were on their debut, musically the piano and Amy voice has never sounded better. The electro sounds on Snow White Queen and Lose Control give a very dark atmosphere and accomplishes what the lyrics on Fallen tried to accomplish but in a much more modern and simplistic way. The album has a real epic feel throughout and while keeping those beautiful melodies it still finds a way to have that hardness rock fans will be looking for. Evanescence still has a lot to grow but The Open Door is a fantastic step towards a brighter future. Standouts: The Only One, All That I'm Living For and Good Enough… Expand
Nov 30, 2017Unfortunately, I'm not sure Evanescence can ever top "Fallen". They started out TOO good and made TOO much of a hit with "Fallen". "The OpenUnfortunately, I'm not sure Evanescence can ever top "Fallen". They started out TOO good and made TOO much of a hit with "Fallen". "The Open Door" is by no means a bad album, in fact, I like every song on the album. It's just constantly unhappy and angsty, so much more so than "Fallen". By far my favorite track on here is Good Enough because it ends the album on a lighter note and feels like a breath of fresh air. "The Open Door" is still a pretty solid album though. B… Expand

No other artists have been able to I really wanted to like this CD...Fallen was a classic; innovative, emotional, and musically respectable. No other artists have been able to blend rock-goth-and positive energy. It was dark and moody, but still uplifting and energizing. The new CD has two, maybe three songs that are creative, confident, and catchy. The rest of the album is predictable; lacking innovative vocal and instrumental harmonies and sounding scripted/redundant. Overall, its a good album compared to everything else out there, but the search for a female-led true rock and roll band still continues.… Expand
joselOct 6, 2006trash, compared to fallen, their breakout album. go back to the studio, or get someone just as good as moody, cuz your voice isn't gonna cut it.
