So I’ve been an EV fan since I was 11. My sister bought Fallen and put it in the car for a long time before I just took the cd myself and listened to it all year long. Before I knew it, I was obsessed. Sure I was too young to understand how deep the lyrics were and how I could relate, but it didn’t mean that I couldn’t connect to the band any less. Thing is, it was something new, it was different and it was glorious. The next year I found out about Origin album/demo through an Inuyasha PV with “Lies” on it. I couldn’t find that cd for the life of me I was SO sad. And at the time, downloading was scarce, you didn’t know which sites to trust.
My uncle and aunt were very supportive of my music taste (they took me to my very first EV concert in 07) and altho my uncle was more metal than rock, he liked a few songs from EV and when I told him about Origin, he surprised me the next morning with finding the album, however, when listening to the first track, I realized he got the “Not for your ears” fake-album or w/e. I was a little disappointed, but then I got songs like Before the Dawn and Anything For You and 2384023802 versions of Imaginary and Whisper. I hit the mother load. A few days later we found Origin and I got it. Within a few days I had like 20 new songs from EV and I was overwhelmed. I had enough music to last me till The Open Door. And after that, I had more than enough until self-titled album came out. (How lame was it that later Ben and Amy had a site where you could get all their Ep-demos-outtakes for FUCKING FREE T_T OH WELL HAHA). Here is the site in case you guys don't know about it.
Guys I’m checking my itunes right now I have exactly “102″ songs of Evanescence.
I’m seeing a lot of people on the EV tag complaining about the “breaks” in between albums and how Amy lee just isn’t into EV anymore and if they wanna keep fans they need to keep making music, what. U fookin wut m8. What is that logic?
I suppose everyone is entitled to their own opinions and feelings, but I just cant understand that statement. To KEEP FANS- KEEP MAKING MUSIC? I think we feel like this because when EV first started it was late 90s. We weren’t even born or were just like 5 yo when their EP and Origin dropped. Imagine we had been older and had music to buy between 2001-2011? That’s more than a decade of music. I have more than a decade of EV’s progression in music in my life. There are songs that fit every mood for me. It’s insane. And you know what? Most of my favorites are on the Origin album now that I’m old enough to understand the meanings behind their songs, or at least how I interpret them.
I disagree with all these opinions. I don’t think EV needs to make another album. I think I have more than enough music from them to keep myself satisfied. I mean look at me, I’m spamming Where Will You Go 300 fucking times -14 years later from when it was released. 14 FUCKING YEARS LATER AND I’M STILL NOT DONE LISTENING TO IT.
My point is, yes I would LOVE another album, but do I need it? No. I respect Amy saying how sometimes she is just so consumed in the band that she needs to breathe. That’s okay. There is more to this life than EV for her. She takes breaks and now she’s a mom. Bravo to other artists/bands that have kids and still tour-awesome, but if Amy wants to be a mom instead, then who are we to judge? Did you listen to her new interview? She is taking Jack with her on tour to Japan! Maybe we are lucking out guys and we will get a new album, Idk. Just cuz I don’t need another album, doesn’t mean I wouldn’t embrace it if they decided to make one or have been working on new material btw. I’m all for it, but if not I’m more than okay with what I’ve got.
I’m just saying, for myself, EV has put out so much music that its more than enough for me. And for that I’m always going to be a fan. They will NEVER lose me as fan if they don’t make another album. I’m so okay with what they’ve put out over 10 years. I am a fan for life. And I want to thank Amy for all the work she’s put it and still putting out. Her solo stuff was fantastic and now we’re getting a few tour dates? You bet your fine ass I already got my EV ticket for Dallas, tx for November. My sister and I are stoked. Here’s to EV playing some older songs from Fallen-Father Away would murder my soul if I heard that one live LOL
Anyway, if you claim to be a person that will stop being a fan cuz there isnt new material, you’re not a fan. Fans stick through thick n thin. Dry or wet LOL As long as the artist doesn’t wrong the fans, I don’t see why you can’t continue to appreciate what they have done for you already.
