....Virumor : "Evanescence is just commercial food for the kiddies out there, like Pepsi and Pizza Hut. And i am not even mentioning MacDonalds."
Ringfacwen : "Evanescence is another one of those bands that's just like all the rest of that new-metal dirt. Annoying."
Lady Feawen : "Evanscence,mmm...I don't like 'em much either,I'm a bit more into the stuff that does not make you want to shoot your brains out "

So need to be afraid to say that you hate it... We just want your personnal opinion about it.

She has a great voice (the lead singer) and I think its cool how they don't seem to care what they wear but I've never been into their most popular songs (the harder tracks),I like their accoustic songs and lyrics but I can't really imagine going to see them in concert anytime soon or being a big fan.
I wld have left too, If it was me. No! Actually, I wldn't have joined them in the first place!
Well, all their songs sound exactly the same. They haven't got "creativity". so I am with Vir and Ross for this time. I don't like them.

Quite right. The main thing with Evanescence is that their music has absolutely no soul or feeling whatsoever in it. They never sound like they care very much. Also, they just aren't distinctive or unique enough to really catch my attention. They're just like a lot of the other nu-metal bands around, designed for people who like anything they're told to like, or that fits in with what other people like. That's my opinion anyway.
Yes ok Pere, but that´s not quite right though, I have a mind of my own and I have not been told to like them or anything like that it just happend that I really do, and one more thing is that I belive that both their heart and soul lives in their music and I for one can truly hear it even if you might not.

I went and saw them live at a place called Harpos in Detroit, and at first I didn't like them either because of the radio and hearing her voice continually on it.
But after seeing them in concert, I have to say they do rock, and are pretty good at it.
The bassist shot me with a supersoaker! I felt so honored! Wink Smilie
I don't like 'em! I don't like to listen to 'em! Coz if u listen to any one of their songs yo have heard all their songs as they all sound the same!
I heard that the band's guitarist left and they have stopped their tour.

Are they going to be a one album band?
Well thanx for your opinion Aragorn... I will know that I mustn't send you some Eva songs through msn then...Wink Smilie
We said we accepted any opinions...
My sis is a big fan of them but I can't say I'm the same. Their songs are okay but somehow they just don't pull me into listening to their other songs. Although the other day my sis played one of their songs from the album, I'm not sure which one, but at the end of it, it sounded like the chorus from Khazad-Dum's theme! I was surprised, so maybe you Evanescence fans can elaborate further. Smile Smilie

By the way, when they performed at the AMA, is it just me or did the lead singer sounded like she couldn't get her voice out??

Yeah, right! Have you thought about the 2 million albums that they have sold? They have gotten a little money for their efforts!
Hmm...Evanescence...are alright. I quite like them at the beginning. Amy's got a great voice - and she designs ALL her clothes herself, thats why they're all so cool. They're not really rock, but...um...yeah i like them...
The guitarist's left? But he's cool!

I don't know why, but I heard that he is indeed gone. I think they got someone else to replace him.
I have recently revised my opinion of Evanescence slightly. They are all talentless wonders except Amy Lee, who can actually sing, and is wasting her time with that bunch of ****ers.
I like Evanescence, amy lee ( i think that's her name) has a great voice, i like more or less every track on the album.
'my immortal' is especially haunting, though i couldn't listen to their album all day, might get a bit down lol
Well that's at least one now...Welcome to Planet Tolkien, Isildur!! Hope you'll like it as much as I do Big Smile Smilie
lol, wow this is great....keep your thoughts comming people, hehe and info too I atleast some new stuff about them reading at this thread now...I must confess that I´m not that well informed about the band *blushes*

Anna and I have a song that we listen to and that we both like...it's not like other songs of eva...it's just what she says reminds us that...
It's called "Forgive me"

If its that Bryan Adams song, I love it too! (Had to sing it qite a few times actually. But I won't go into y did I have to or to whom!)
I don't care what everyone else says: I still like Evanescence! I think they're great!
Note: I like Nightwish and Apocaliptica as well!

Namarie!
Quote:

I like those two too, but i still hate Evansessence.

btw, it's Apocalyptica.
U know wat I heard My Immortal playing ova the radio and guess wat Its a gr8 song especially if u're an insomniac. Now everytime I'm unable to sleep I know wat song to play! Wink Smilie
Had to put this thread back on top to let all the ppl know how much I hate Evernonsence. I'm glad even the radio has got bored of it. They've stopped playing Evernonsence's songs. And no I had no part to play in that!
But lordy boy,I thought you loved them.*rolls eyes*

you have come to the wrong place then, this is a thread about EVANESCENCE, not evernon(something) which probably is a crappy band. Evanescence is NOT! :P

And because i'm older than you you are supposed to listen to me anyway so what i say is right and you are wrong. Try to learn to live with it pls! Wink Smilie
Moderator Smilie Lets be nice people. Moderator Smilie

There is no right and wrong when it comes to music, art, and literature; opinions on these are purely subjective. One either appreciates the esthetics of the subject in question, they can take it or leave it, or they simply hate it. And after the passage of time, their previous opinion on the subject can change. Familiarity leads to love or breeds contempt.
Perwing, Evernonsence is wat I "lovingly" call Evanescence.

And Grondy I thought this place was one where you can write yor feelings about anything. Yo know that "Freedom of speech" everyone keeps talking about. C'mon Grondy, I thought that u can really post wateva u think here. But if u want me to keep my "love" of Evernonsence under wraps I'll gladly do so!

The point is to discuss things reasonably and not attack eachother. There is no need to offend a person becuase he/she like a band you don't like (or vice versa), or something like that. There is freedom of speach here as long as you follow common sense and decency. Grondy just warns when things might turn ugly in a post or two, not because what we have said so far is out of line. If it HAD been out of line he would have taken it away and given a stern warning. Smile Smilie
cheeeezz n' crackerzz.....

just a little suggestions for anyone that didn't get that the whole "i'm older therefore i'm right and you are wrong"-thing was a joke: get a humour-implant (or a transplant, whatever!)

and besides that, taverns are for talking bs..... (at least that is what they have been used for so far!)
Got The Blues Smilie Sorry that you took it personal Perwing, I missed your wink. Still it is better to have a discussion than an argument, which as Amarie pointed out, I was only trying to head off .
