Notes:Album art taken from the official site.
General thoughts:Having heard Evanescence was all about angsty rock (something I will never tire of), I decided to check it out. And sure enough, there is not a hopeful song to be found here. Soul-rending agony is the star, sung in Amy Lee's (mostly) good vocals.
Three tracks are quieter and slower than the rest ("Hello" and the two versions of "My Immortal"). Those are better when they don't immediately follow a louder song. The whole thing is emotional, kind of creepy (just look at the album art), and worth a listen.
P.S. Before anyone mentions the whole Christian band controversy, I don't think Evanescence is one nor that they are anti-Christian.
