I’ve finally listened to Evanescence’s latest album! The self-titled album is less doomy (as previously mentioned in reviews I’ve linked to here in previous posts), but I must admit that I am so glad that there’s a remnant of Doomy Amy with Lost in Paradise, which is simply my favorite track here. It’s still reminiscent of Evanescence of old, but more lush-sounding now. The lyrics of this song are as haunting as those from Fallen, but thankfully I could now listen without wincing in shared anguish. (Because I’m in a better place now?)
Other notable tracks:
- Erase This -fun fun fun!
- Sick – sick (if I may borrow the colloquial term) intro.
- Swimming Home – good song to close the album.
