In Response to Evanescence Fans
Amy and Ben 2003
Regarding my hub: Evanescence, We Are The Fallen and reclaiming the dream
I wanted to clarify a few things. First, I am a HUGE Evanescence fan, and have been since before Fallen was released. I was lucky enough to go to see them live in 2003 while Ben was still in the band. It was amazing. I never say in my hub that The Open Door is a 'bad' album or that I don't like it. I love it. 'Lacrymosa', 'Like You', 'Your Star', 'All That I'm Living For', and 'Good Enough' are my favorites of the album. The Open Door is just harder to get to know than Fallen was. It takes a few listens, and you do hear something new every time you listen to it. 'Good Enough' is the only song that I can play all the way through on the piano without mistake.
I can honestly say I have heard every single recorded song that Amy’s voice is in, and know all the words by heart. I probably know more about Evanescence than at least half the people on evthreads. No joke. And as for the comment about the latest news being that they're writing and recording new material; I DID know about that when I wrote the hub, but that's what Amy says, nothing has been released, and who knows how long that will take. Her saying that there’s going to be news isn’t really news.
I love the idea of Evanescence, but that's all that’s really left at this point, just an idea. Amy is solo, whether anyone wants to believe that or not. Even if we consider Terry a permanent collaborator, that would still not really make them a 'band'. More like a 'duo' maybe? I also do not like how she abandoned evboard. She used to come on there all the time, now she's just disowned it I guess. And I don't think it's very fair how she kicked that person off evthreads for making a We Are The Fallen forum. What is that? 'You like THEM, so you can't come on MY forum anymore!' Seems pretty childish to me.
My point is; I love the music, but hate the drama, and immaturity. I will definitely be buying any music that is released by both We Are The Fallen, and whatever Evanescencey Amy Terry thing that finally sees the light of day.
For The Immature:
One more thing; I shouldn’t have to say “This is just my opinion, please don’t hate me for it”. OBVIOUSLY its my opinion. Anything anyone writes is their own opinion. Also, I honestly don’t care if you hate me for it. Because if you do, than you must have some serious issues with the way you receive and interpret information. This doesn’t affect you. I am not hurting you. I am not hurting anyone. Grow up.
For The Mature:
Thank you for politely disagreeing with me. You are proof that a person’s reaction to what I’ve written does not need to be anger and hate, even if you disagree with me. And we can all get along. I truly appreciate that more than you know.
Well, this started out as a comment I was going to post under my first hub. But it’s gotten pretty long, so it has become its own hub.
