    Well, that frees up my Wednesday evening.

    Modern and current, huh?



    Whether or not the album is good, there's no question that We Are the Fallen sounds like Evanescence. They have not only given Carly vocals that sound like Amy Lee, but given her Amy's look. Even if people think that she sounds as good as Amy (and most won't), people are going to tag her as an Amy Lee wannabe or as Ben Moody's puppet.
    Well, with several former members of the band, that's inevitable. But I really don't care what people say or think--I just really like their music.

    Maybe we'll get the Jonas Brothers, too. I'll be curious to see who they pair with each contestant. If they make Casey sing "How Deep is Your Love" with the Bee Gees, I'll just scream.

    Well, of course people should decide to buy their album based on whether they like the music. But my point was that Carly doesn't seem like she's singing and playing Carly. I think it's more than just having some of the same band members. It's very much the same sound as Evanescence and they've got Carly looking like Amy. Personally, I just wish Carly could have made some music creating her own voice and identity. At this point, she just seems like she's playing Amy at someone else's direction, and I kind of feel sorry for her. But, I guess she prefers doing this to doing her own thing with little success.

    I reviewed the album in the CD releases thread, but in short, the CD is almost a carbon copy of Fallen. Its listenable, even good in some spots, but nothing groundbreaking.

    Carly sounds terrific though, and I definitely think that goth/pop/rock is her niche, but I think they should have played it less safe.

    Or "You're a Rich Girl" or "Man Eater" by Hall & Oates. Though I admit to liking H & O back in the day . I can't imagine Crystal or Lee singing with Chicago.

    Gotta say, we were at a huge convention in San Francisco a few weeks ago. Every year the final night is a concert. This year it was Chicago, they were awesome.

I was never big on Daughtry and Cook (although I think they had some great performances on the show) and have not liked any of their work since the show, but they are both so superior to Lee it's ridiculous. Besides having easily better voices, they actually performed instead of standing around and looking like a frightened turtle.
    I actually think that Simon is gushing over Lee as a result of a very calculated strategy.

    Idol will be his biggest competition next season. If someone wins that has marginal talent and no charisma cough*Lee*cough, people will be sick of the Idol machine and think it's time to move on....to "X Factor". At least that will be new and exciting.

    JMHO.
