The Bitter Truth is the fifth studio album by American rock band Evanescence. Returning to the rock roots that made fans fall in love with their sound, The Bitter Truth feels like Fallen, The Open Door and Evanescence all rolled into one....
( We don't discuss Synthesis here lol)
There are two albums and bands that defined my teenage years; Linkin Park Hybrid Theory and Evanescence Fallen. I remember watching the music video for Bring Me To Life, this haunting gothic themed theatrical video that had a female vocalist that had this powerhouse of a voice that gave me goosebumps.
I counted down the days for the album release and then played that over and over again.
My Immortal is one of my all time favorite songs and to this day,
Amy Lee is one of my all time fave female vocalists.
The Bitter Truth starts out easing you into the album, with a prelude before dropping you into Broken Pieces Shine, my fave song off the album. It's definitely an indication of how the album is going to be, as Amy herself has said in interviews, that this album would showcase the rock and power of the band,
and it sure does.
Evanescence are back with a vengeance, gifting us with hard hitting tracks and spine tingling vocals and reminding us why they were one of the best rock vocal bands of the noughties and beyond. Amy Lee's voice is amazing as it always has been, and its like they've never been away.
Standout tracks for me: Broken Pieces Shine, The Game is Over, Feeding the Dark, Wasted on You, Better Without You, Take Cover, Far From Heaven & Part of Me.
