    Oh, I thought it was supposed to come out the 12th.

    I think I'm with Jeff on this one. I like me some EV, and this has moments, but it isn't too exciting to me even though it's a bit different than their normal offerings.

    I like it. It's a lot more enjoyable then about 85% of "The Open Door".

    I think it's pretty good. I like it as much as possible for another rock song with generic guitar. I still wish they'd use more synth.

    I think the instrumentation is actually better than The Open Door tbh.

    It's a good song. Amy sounds great.

    I agree, she still sounds great. The song has me curious to hear the rest of the album so I say the single did it's job.

    Also, off topic, the crazy horse is back! :awesome:

    I really hate the term "generic guitar." lol. Anyways, the song sounds good. Seems like it has a pretty good energy to it. Its different, yet the same for Evanescence. I like it.

    The more I listen to this song, the more I get excited that Evanescence is back. They were one HELL of a live act, and the fact they broke up (or seemingly broke up) a few years ago was such a downer. Glad to see them back and more energized than ever.

    That's the most respectful description I can give it.

    It sounds slightly better than anything on The Open Door, but then again that's not too hard anyway.

    I saw them playing it live on MTV and Amy still sounds like she's struggling to grasp some air between verses.

    She definitely didn't sound that way when I saw her live. Honestly I think the mixing was terrible in that performance. Didn't do them justice live at all.

    I don't really understand the hate on Open Door. I actually like that album more than Fallen.

    Well, I don't hate "The Open Door", I just can't get into all the songs on the album.

    Seconded. Still gives me chills.

    Btw, I highly suggest to buy the single. The iTunes rip is so much clearer and awesome than the shitty YouTube video going around.

    Already done. :awesome:

    Also, with all the talk about Open Door, I think I might give it another listen. Seeing that my musical taste has changed a lot in the past year or two.
