Anywhere But Home – Evanescence

Sometime in the noughties, big record companies identified a popular and growing genre with the young and spendy. It was taking Europe by storm. Metal and rock bands fronted by a female singer with dark hair and huge norks.

It was growing like a fungus on the toe of American and British youth culture but not as fast as it was in Europe. So when they found the American band Evanescence, they were everywhere. Soundtracks such as Daredevil and Elektra and numerous TV show links seemed to require a healthy dose of their music.

I only like three of their songs. To be fair, I find them a bit plastic and over-produced. This album features those three songs in a live setting with lots of screaming fans. Albums like that show how popular bands can become. Sadly, I can’t put up with their other stuff…
