All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rock & roll breakups are rarely as acrimonious as that between Ben Moody and Amy Lee of Evanescence. Just as their 2003 debut, Fallen, was turning into an international sensation, the guitarist left the band, the bad blood between the two spilling into the press, Lee's post-Moody album The Open Door, and even Moody's long-delayed post-Evanescence project We Are the Fallen, whose very name defiantly claims Evanescence's hit album as the property of Moody and his two fellow refugees from the band, guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rock & roll breakups are rarely as acrimonious as that between Ben Moody and Amy Lee of Evanescence. Just as their 2003 debut, Fallen, was turning into an international sensation, the guitarist left the band, the bad blood between the two spilling into the press, Lee's post-Moody album The Open Door, and even Moody's long-delayed post-Evanescence project We Are the Fallen, whose very name defiantly claims Evanescence's hit album as the property of Moody and his two fellow refugees from the band, guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray. Based on their 2010 debut, Tear the World Down, We Are the Fallen are not wrong to say they were responsible for the sound of that 2003 hit: with former American Idol contestant Carly Smithson as their frontwoman (and metal veteran Marty O'Brien on bass), the group sounds exactly like Evanescence, lacking only the sour charisma of Lee. Where Amy Lee pushed against Moody's roiling minor-key melodic dirges, creating a good deal of genuine tension, Smithson eagerly follows along, happy to be part of such a prominent project. After dealing with Lee, Moody wanted somebody who would play the game and that's what he has in Smithson, somebody who will play the part of goth rock queen without actually being it. And so Moody winds up with the record he would have released in 2006 if he were still part of Evanescence: big, slick, heavy, and melodic, pleasing those who like the sound of Fallen but could do without all the sulkiness.

    Very nice album, horrible packaging

    Very nice album, if you like the Evanescence sound. I do. The similarity is startling. My only real issue is with the packaging - probably the worst I've ever seen - a simple too-tight slip case that doesn't really show up well in a stack or offer much in the way of protection for the CD. Judging from this, I predict Republic will be the first label to ship CD's packaged in sandwich baggies.

    Incredible!!!

    I am here to make a huge statement... This is NOT another Evenescence!!! We Are The Fallen stands on their own two feet and one of todays most up and coming rock groups!! I saw them live for the first time in Pittsburgh, and then again in Atlantic City and they were absolutely phenomenal both times. Carly Smithson has a voice that is all her own. with a range that surpasses most female singers out there. Ben Moody- Guitar, is just an absolute joy to watch. His talent and raw emotion is breath taking, and his stage presence is better than I have seen in a long long time. John LeCompt is equally as amazing on his guitar, and when he gets out his 8 string electric, watch out cause the dude can shred. What can you say about Marty O'Brien? He is probably one of todays most acclaimed bassists. He has such an incredible back history with who he has played for, it is mind blowing. I did not see him use a pick once live and his skills are what has inspired me to learn the bass. Rocky Gray is a powerhouse on the drums, and provides a wonder backbone for the band with his wonderful skills. I URGE everyone who loves good rock bands with strong powerful female leads to buy this album... You will NOT be disappointed, that I can PROMISE!!!
