CD Reviews

Two excellent acoustic songs by Amy Lee and Ben Moody
Lawrance M. Bernabo | The Zenith City, Duluth, Minnesota | 09/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If a "new" artist can get one song prominently placed in a major Hollywood release, then I would say they are doing pretty good. But for a relatively unknown group like Evanescence to get not one but two songs in "Daredevil," both of which were placed absolutely perfectly within the film's narrative, is clearly an ultra-rare case of lightning actually striking twice. After the group won a pair of Grammy Awards, for Best New Artist and Best Hard-Rock Performance, I got to go see them in concert. We were supposed to have done that several months earlier, but a funny thing happened on the group's tour of Europe where they suddenly had to replace Ben Moody. So the time has come to load up the car's CD player with "Fallen" and assorted singles, including this one, for the ride down to the concert.

The chief attraction here are the two acoustic tracks. They are what justifies picking up this CD-Single when you already have the "Fallen" album. Moody plays the guitar while Amy Lee shows off her pipes on an acoustic version of "Going Under" and then a cover of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box," done for a radio station. Can you imagine that once upon a time you could go see Evanescence for five bucks? But then who would have thought that a 14 year old boy would have heard a 13 year old girl playing a Meat Loaf song on the piano at a Christian summer camp and started writing songs together. There is also a radio edit of "Going Under," so there another minor benefit in not duplicating the opening track of "Fallen" on this single (hearing Lee belt this track out at the start of the concert was one of four times at a concert a singer has given me chills, and she did it twice that night with "My Immortal" being the other). Be aware that there are also acoustic versions of "Bring Me to Life" and "My Immortal," the two songs that made it into "Daredevil," for you to track down that are equally worth the effort.
