Song of the Day - What You Want

Evanescence - What You Want
Album: Evanescence (2011)

Evanescence fans, your fears can be laid to rest. Amy Lee said she wouldn't disappoint long-time fans with the band's new direction and I've got to say... she's right. When reports came out that they were heading in a more electronic direction, many a fan had some reservations. There was also the possibility that Evanescence could go in a more 'poppy' direction, resulting in Amy Lee going all Avril Lavigne 'Girlfriend.' Ok, no there wasn't, but imagine it! 'What You Want,' the first single from Evanescence's third, self-titled album, finds the band with their heaviest sound. Blazing guitars, banging drums and Lee's booming vocals. What's not to like? Will it be the commercial success that was 'Bring Me To Life?' No. Is it still a great song? Yes.

Rating: 4/5
