    Just saw and heard the music for the latest release - Call me when your sober....

    I mean she is gorgeous..and the music is compelling...but the bands bio is interesting and really opened my eyes...

    the current single is "okay" and the video has been out for awhile.

    but it isnt that compelling to me..

    I dont know, what do you all think?

    yeah that video's been out awhile i think its okay i really like the visuals in the video but a positive message about love and sobriety might not be the best song material. its like a slap in the face to anyone who's ever had a girlfriend that was just used. it makes me feel
    like amy(her name is amy right) just has bad taste in men. your a star now baby forget all that trash

    I must admit that the stuff I've heard from the new album, sounds very much the same as the last album. Fallen was a great album because it sounded different to everything that was out there, I suppose I was just hoping for a bit more

    well its 2006 - its popular for women to been seen as being powerful and men as being idiots or drunken fools. I mean if women really were so powerful they wouldnt find themselves being used by men in the first place.

    Id also like to say I like the band and I think Amy is a great artist so that comment wasnt a reflection on what I think of her or the music, its just a general observation I have of female pop culture right now. It is quite ironic if you think about it, singers like Pink, etc etc are all putting themselves forward as being tough independent bitches, but all they do is whinge and cry about how men suck.

    Get over it and try keeping your legs closed for a while, works wonders.

    true when the band emerged the sound was a total change from pop mainstream. most women are singing about love or how a man wont get her love or reflections and experience. then evanescence comes out with a song like going under a song like that makes gives me a fresh perspective on how the world makes someone feel. her music does have a dark beauty Isnt she going out with the lead from Seether you know
    steal your pain away thats a darkly beautiful tune makes me want to cry. so anyway is this new evanescence single an attack on her boyfreind HMMM? going to go google the dictionary term for evanescene now

    the thing is her boyfriend (the guy from seether) wrote most of her old songs. He stepped down.

    Haven't seen the video you're referring to but I definately agree here. It seems most of the commercials on TV involve smart women and stupid bumbling men. I guess the target demographic is the women who do the shopping. Of course the feminists would have their panties well bunched up if the roles were reversed.

    Why can't she write her own f*ckin songs. That makes me despise her now. Not an artist in my eyes.

    A good song writer writes their own music and/or lyrics. a good singer is a good singer. and an exceptional singer can claim a song as their own even if they didn't write it, like eva cassidy did with many songs she covered.

    Amy is actually a damn fine singer, listen to "good enough" on the new album, I dont care who wrote it, you guys really all are so dramatic. :p

    Fine I'll compromise for a good artist makes and sings their own songs. :annoyed: ;)

    I still have no respect fer her as an artist anymore. Can't stand anyone who doesn't write their own stuff.

    Amy Lee "Hey SFOSOK, you like my new album?"

    SFOSOK "Yeah its good until I heard you didnt write your own songs, you lame ass biatch!"

    Amy Lee "Really? thats a shame cause I like your outfit there stud and you are quite cute and I was going to take you out on the town tonight with the gang, maybe take you back to my place for some lovin' big boy"

    SFSOK "Nah piss off, I can't respect you as an artist until you write your own songs even if you can sing, now get out of my face".

    Amy Lee "Your loss........."
