*edit by Art - Please, this is a thread to review the CD. We have already been through this. If you want to talk about the band's spirituality, this is not the place.*

Can I get a little love around here? Leave the hatin to the haters and be a little bit more postitive kids I happen to love this band, though i think most of it is Amy Lee's vocals. You could probably put her with a car engine running and a banjo being played by an elephant and her music would still sound gorgeous. Main point, Fallen is one of the best modern rock albums ive heard in a while, and furthermore, I feel like I can pull a christian message out of most of the music. Not only is Toruniquet God-centered, but take a listen to "Taking over Me" and think about your own relationship with God. Just a little challenge

In His Peace

i like evanescence too i think yes, it can be called depressing, so if you're already sad or don't like sad music, don't listen to it, but basically i love the soundings of the songs.

Great cd. Awesome vocals, nice crunchy guitars, some cool string and piano stuffage, and deep lyrics. The only I don't like is the choir that's on some of the tracks. Sound kinda corny I think.

I loved this CD. The only problem that I have is that there are 2 My Immortal tracks, the first being the more "mellow" version. Quite fankly, it stinks, and I can't even stand to listen to it. mainly because her vocals are just off. I don't know if she sang it, then they put in the music, or what, but the tone it terrible. I don't know why they didn't just use the second version (which is the one they like to put on the radio). Otherwise, this is a great CD whether they are "Christians" or not. It's uplifting, yet still has that edge.

Good CD by a good band, but "Origin" is a better work than this.

The version of "My Immortal" with guitars/drums is on the CD. Track 12.

Now for my opinions:

Is Evanescence a "Christian band": No

Is their music good: Yes

I gave it an 8. They can't hold a candle to The Beatles. But then again, who can?

Evanescence chose not to be in the Christian genre because they don't want to be pigeonholed (categorized). The band was actually formed in a Youth Praise and Worship camp and each one of the members are still very much devoted to Christ.
One of the former member of Evanescence, named David Hodges, is starting a band of his own (a Christian Band) and he's VERY talented and he has strong faith.

www.notachristianband.com
^ You can read some of the "hate" mails this site received just because they decided to name it "Not a Christian Band". Read it so you may understand more.

And on David, you can read about him here: www.notachristianband.com/david In his interview, he shows great faith in God that amazes me.

Sorry if this has been posted before, I have no time to read the whole thread...

I say just forget the whole is Evanescence a Christian band or not debate and enjoy their music. I mean, Amy Lee's voice is just.......incredible. And it is so unique in that style of music. Plus, she's kinda hot......... That's is sooooo not a reason for likeing their cd, though. Anyways, I gave it a 9. An excellent cd.
