    @cyyyliraa Great, another person who thinks electronic music doesn't involve talent.

    I love Lockdown, Drifter, Can't See What's Coming and Voice In My Head. That combination one after another is truly magical! But the rest is... meh Push the button is allright but very different and Madonna like xD

    When are people going to realise Aftermath is not an album specific for Amy. Aftermath is a soundtrack written to go within the film War Story, so of course it is going to be different from Evanescence.

    I actually don't see anything electronic on the album, I believe the correct term is EBM or industrial..

    O aftermath ta simplismente sem palavras. É sublime, magestoso, toca a alma de quem se permite sentir a beleza que a amy quis transmitir. Eu como fã de evanescence to orgulhosa e sim, mudanças sao bem vindas. Esse album me surpreendeu e pra melhor. Amy maravilhosa,boring o cacete gente, ta uma arte e foda se quem não gostou

    I love Amy Lee and I always will. She's a big part of my life. But I think the songs in Aftermath are beneath her talent. Why all this electronic stuff? I love soundtracks, but I do think it is a bit boring. I'm gonna give it a few more tries, but I hope Amy decides to make music that actually shows her talent and I'm not talking about Evanescence (even though I hope they release something new someday). I'm a little disappointed.

    Mistress. Too short the album. She obviously overgrown Evanescence and all that high-school kind of music. Kind of reminds me of Rob Dougan in a way. Just like him, she'll give us breadcrumbs of her talent, disappearing from the radars, eventually, leaving us, mortals, with few masterpieces on replay for ages.

    The problem with this album is it's short. The good stuff is really good, but five out of ten songs are quite unremarkable because they don't have the time to grow, climax and resolve (and they nod too much to Hans Zimmer anyways). The longer instrumental tracks, like Between Worlds and Voices In My Head are good because they have the goddamn time to actually *tell* something, but the others… meh. Even Drifter and Can't Stop What's Coming would be an okay song, if they were merged, but as two pieces they are like, mmh, whatever. On the other hand, Dark Water, Push The Button and Lockdown are really good songs. They just make me look forward to Amy's next solo effort.

    A soundtrack is a soundtrack. It's not supposed to be the forefront of a movie. It's an accompaniment to tell a story. Most people will find it "boring" because soundtrack music is largely background music. It shines when there is no dialogue and when you are presented with ideas and emotions. I like the soundtrack. Very atmospheric.

    This new stuff from her is boring. Even as a soundtrack. [3]
