Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although its record label first marketed the band to Christian media, comments by band members inspired the label to redirect the album to the secular market. Despite this controversy, salvation theology seemingly undergirds several tracks.
What's the story?
Leaving its Little Rock roots behind, Evanescence rocketed to attention when its songs \"Bring Me To Life\" and \"My Immortal\" were featured in the Daredevil movie soundtrack. The FALLEN album builds on this success with those and eight other tracks ranging from anguished ballad to driving nu-metal and goth/rock. \"The point of this whole record and band is to let people know that they're not alone in dealing with bad feelings or pain or anything that they go through,\" writes Lee on the band's website. \"That's life and that's human.\"
Is it any good?
Lead vocalist Amy Lee writes most of the band's music and sings in a choir-trained voice that can growl, whisper, and hold pure high notes with smooth ease, while singing about pain, spiritual darkness, and loneliness.
