Evanescences debut studio album Fallen opens with the aggressive rock track Going Under. This songs pure determination is driven by Lees emotion combined with chugging guitar riffs. This powerful opener leads into debut single Bring Me to Life. A delicate piano intro creates a solemn atmosphere which ultimately gets torn apart by the bands trademark gothic intensity. Paul McCoys contribution gives this song a nu metal flavour. To contrast this explosive start are the ballads of the record. The despairing My Immortal captivates via Lees haunting voice interplaying with a sorrowful piano melody. The piano is also prominent in Hello, a chilling portrayal of a childs mind which unsettles as Lee solemnly delivers a beautiful vocal performance. The two heavier tracks on Fallen are the anguished centerpiece Tourniquet which soars to a more spiritual level and the imposing Haunted with Moodys superb guitar work overlapping an eerie choir. In Everybodys Fool a different underlying theme is conveyed. Lee attacks the celebrities we idolise today by venting anger through her art. The Millennium Choir adds gothic depth to her message. Evanescence eventually slips into a dream world of paper flowers and candy clouds in the enchanting Imaginary. Wonderful lyrics linger over a hopeful melody resulting in a pleasant escape from the surrounding darkness. This escapism doesnt last long however as lost love and obsession consume in the heavy, passionate Taking Over Me. The album begins to close with the poignant My Last Breath where Lee declares acceptance of death. Following this acceptance, a grand finale occurs in the cataclysmic Whisper. As Fallen fades away with haunting Latin vocals, take a deep breath and reflect on this emotional masterpiece. A+

I was tired of it after the overplayed tunes on the radio, and after listening to the rest of the album, it sounds like the same song over and over. It is annoying!! Someone said the guitar was ho-hum, and they're right! Wake up people! Her voice starts soundling like a whining cat line after line, over and over, the same sound.
