Evanescence – My Heart Is Broken

When you go to Evanescence, you go for theatrics. And My Heart Is Broken, while for me lacking the on-point feisty energy of album standout What You Want, is about as theatrical as Evanescence come. Lots of lyrics about wandering until the end of time and souls and that sort of stuff pretty much comes as standard with the band, but it’s easy to forget just *how* good Evanescence are at coming up with a stellar hook. My Heart Is Broken rides high and proud like some gleaming white stallion of majestic rock beauty; Amy Lee’s vocals as achingly beautiful as ever, the guitars suitably beefy. A towering blockbuster of a track.
