Amy Lee cements her status as the core of Evanescence

01:00 AM EDT on Thursday, April 5, 2007

PROVIDENCE — There’s a reason the chanting late last night at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center consisted of “Amy Lee! Amy Lee!” rather than “Evanescence!” And it wasn’t just the number of syllables. Frontwoman Lee is the musical and focal point of Evanescence, and last night’s show, taken roughly equally from last year’s The Open Door album and the band’s 2003 breakthrough release, Fallen, only cemented her status.

Compared with her recorded work, Lee’s voice last night had more warmth and was less piercing on high notes. This had its pluses, like on “Call Me When You’re Sober,” and its minuses, such as on the opener “Sweet Sacrifice.” But while the group came out swinging, it soon didn’t have many places left to go.

Lee’s lyrical trademark is the kind of confusion, searching and regret that typically comes when one is alone behind closed doors, yet there she was performing to thousands of people who were singing and cheering right along with her. That’s a tough gap to bridge, and it was a little odd to see Lee triumphantly fist-pumping to lyrics such as “Feels like the weight of the world/ Like all my screaming has gone unheard” from The Open Door’s “Weight of the World.” Also, dedicating “All That I’m Living For” to “the hardcore fans” might have made titular sense, but “Lock the last open door/ My ghosts are gaining on me” isn’t quite the love letter she might have been hoping for.

Lee also wasn’t helped by the rest of the band. Her gloomy melodicism and lyrics were all that stood between the group and virtually standard nu-metal, with perhaps a touch of new-school goth. Only on the unisons that closed the final encore, “Your Star,” did anyone but Lee distinguish themselves instrumentally.
