Hey! I think it’s been a long time since last time I did an Evanescence review, so now is the time. This time it’s Call Me When You’re Sober, off the album The Open Door (2006). Just saying something similar to what Amy Lee did in an concert before playing this: This one’s for the girls! The lyrics are here, and the awesome music video is below:

 

 

The song is just amazing. Amy looks smashing as always, inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, just darker, more gothic-like. They even included a wolf. Brilliant. The lyrics are cool and have an attitude, like when she sings “Should have let you fall, lose it all” and  “You never call me when you’re sober, you only want it cause it’s over, aah, it’s over”. With a bittersweet start, so to say, Amy takes us away with clear vocals and the piano, followed by the rest of the band into the epicness of the song. The piano is pretty prominent as an instrument in this song, the melody is wonderful.  The song ends as it starts, with a little twist, and Amy’s deep gaze into the camera, mesmerizing us with her eyes.

 

“How could I have burned paradise?
How could I? You were never mine.”
(Call Me When You’re Sober – Evanescence)
