    Just got this on a recomendation, very good, kinda like a nu-metal Kosheen. Bring Me To Life could be penned by Linkin Park so I'd recomend this album to any LP fans, but there's more here I think than LP offer, so don't be discouraged if you don't like them (I'm not a fan). Worth a listen at least.

    Yeah I have it too.

    Quite good!!!

    I was not expecting too much when I got it, but it did surprise me!!

    As you say, it should appeal to any LP fans.

    I've been having a listen and i'm not quite sure whether i like it or not. Theres some really good stuff but it occassionally slips into a kind of cheesey gothness thats almost cringeworthy. The girl has a superb voice tho - very Tori Amos at times.

    I'd be interested if it weren't for that stupid backing band who are just a second rate Linkin Park, making them second rate second raters! Just shut the hell up with that rapping and the most unneccesary and pathetic metal roaring I've ever heard.

    Just let the girl sing!

    If you like beautiful female vocals try, miranda sex garden. especialy their album carnival of souls. Ive not heard evanscene so i cant make any comparisons and the mear mention of linkin park in relation to them has put me off.

    I have heard that song (bring me back to life) for ages on the radio never managed to find out who it is from. then today I did, went to town got the CD and it's great. The lyrics are very good and dark. And the voice (female ) is just beautiful and is perfect in contrast to the metal stuff.
    Great stuff.

    This is a fantastic album.Shame about the choice of first single,the LP references are getting boring and the album as a whole is nothing like them.Has a very sweeping orchestrated sound without becoming pompous.The voice of Amy Mann is a love or hate thing really,for me it's love!

    The voice is that of Amy Mann??

    I've got quite a bit of her stuff and love her voice and style. Liked Evan....... since I heard the track on an OST (can't remember which one!) but hadn't realised it was her!
