Not interested. I'm looking for an Evanescence album, not an Amy Lee solo album. There is a HUGE difference. I can't believe that Terry Balsamo is wasting his time with that has-been band Limp Bizkit when he and Amy make a great song-writing team. Solo album? Give me a break, Amy. I thought you were better than that. Is it just me, or is Evanescence morphing into Within Temptation, and WT is morphing into Ev? I mean, really. Evanescence seems to be taking a more cinematic, symphonic approach to the music ("Lacrymosa") and now Amy's going for a Celtic vibe??? Within Temptation is getting heavier...better, in my opinion. Anyway, this peaks my interest, but I am VERY disappointed that of all the things Amy Lee could have done, she decides to give up and write a solo album. The Open Door was her chance to prove to the world that Ev is just as sophisticated, just as talented as Lacuna Coil...we were almost there! And now a solo album?? The public is going to DESPISE her. Not a good career move. I will not buy this album if it is a solo album.

Thank GOD! The last Evanescence album SUCKED! Let's admit it people, one or two good songs and then a lot of total garbage. I only listened for her voice. Be done with the horrible stuff they were leaning toward later in their career. Thank God for solo albums!

please learn how to use punctuation marks when you're going to write something long and (to me seemingly) important message that you want people to understand.

I am a such a big fan of evanescence, and i have know for a while that she is not sad. She says she writes this type of music to release all the anger or what ever she feels. I also know that she has been asked many times if she is going to do a solo album, and she said (in a interview, you can fined on youtube) that "Why would i do that i have everything i every wanted here with evanescence." I just adore amy lee, she has one of the best voice every. Acually i think the best voice belongs to her but i also like evanescence. I like their style of music and everything about it (but amy lee is the best out of the band) but in every of their albums like fallen, anywhere but home, and the open door she sings a song with just her and the piano (and cello, violin, ect.) and i think those types of songs are good too. But i highly doubt that she wants to be a solo artist after i saw an interview on youtube. But that is ok, as long as evanescence keeps on make awsome music i will be able to live with that!!!!!!!!!!

Why would Amy Lee go solo? Sure, she has a pretty strong fanbase that would buy a solo album no matter what, but she seems fairly happy in a band... especially with a recent change in almost all (or all?) of the members. She would have just left then if she really wanted to go solo. She MIGHT put out a solo album in addition to being in the band, though. I guess we'll just see what happens.

I know a lot of us fans are still waiting for the new album. I never really knew that much about evanescence until like 2006 and boy i was so happy that i started to listen to them. By then i was like giving up on music even though i love to play piano. But nothing at the time really impacted me the way evanescence did and the way amy lee's voice is just so pretty. I can not wait for the new album. Even though, i like paramore, 3 days grace, fly leaf ect., my first concert is going to have to an evanescence concert!

I think Amy Lee should do wtevr she wants to do, she has an amazing voice and she can pull of a solo album if that is what she is doing; BUT I dont think she'll break away from the rest of the band, because they are an awesome band!

I wouldn't buy a solo album by Amy Lee.If she wanted that,then she should have started her career like a solo singer and not a band singer.Now it's late if she wants to be a respected solo singer.Because respected singers don't quit their bands!! And a solo album of her would suck.It's gonna be Amy Lee who is playing her piano notes and sings about how happy she is now that she married. Is this Evanescence?I don't think so.If she wanted to prove that she is not a...'pony',as she said,then she should go to the studio with the rest of the band's members,making a new album and be more powerful than ever! I totally agree with what 'bailey' said before! I'm not gonna buy this kind of album!No!
