    The only problem I have with the band is the band itself how they keep dropping members. Even now, the supposed new album is being delayed because of personal problems within the group as well as the label.

    I used to like their old songs from their first album, and I occasionally listen to My Immortal.

    Guess I'm just going to keep waiting on some new material.. whenever that may be...

    I really like them. I voted for "I Love Them", but I wouldn't really say they're accurate. I can't say that I like them, but they're overplayed, as I don't think that. I like them, and they're one of the better bands, but still wouldn't go to an extreme of love.

    Once you have heard one of their songs, you've heard them all. They get boring.

    Haven't really listened to them in a while, but did a lot back in '03 at college. I can remember walking through the dorms and it seemed almost every other room had it playing. Whenever I hear them now it takes me back to that time :)

    Agreed.

    Sorry. But they still are an excellent band, IMO. Amy Lee is amazing.
    Thanks. :) Would you please add a Ok option? I know you're in this thread more as a member/fan, and not a mod, sorry.
    It is.
    Edit: Thanks MacDawg. (Or whoever added the "They are OK" option.)
    They do sound a bit similar. But just because they're boring doesn't mean they're not good.

    I also like Within Temptation more. Actually they are my favorite band. Evanescence is also great though.

    They have a good song or two, but any band with a few albums does (pretty much).



    Also, Amy Lee is friggin' hot in the My Immortal video.

    I'm not fond of them, but happy they don't have more hits than they do becuase then I'd hear them on the radio. I don't like their sound, plus My Immortal they had was waaaaaaaay overplayed.

    They're one of the few bands to emerge in the last 15 or so years that I can actually listen to.

    I guess this would seem to be the biggest issue with them right now. Evidently a lot that goes into their sound does indeed come from the chemistry of the band--which I guess is why We Are The Fallen sounds so much like them--even with a different lead singer.

    For female lead in that rock style, I would say Flyleaf is a much better choice.
