Top Ten Reasons Why Alice in Chains is Better Than Evanescence
The Top Ten
Another factually incorrect entry, but I bet if I debunked your claim, you'd still find a reason to whine. - DCfnaf
Lmao this is so untrue on so many levels - wrests
Not true at all.
Untrue, very untrue
Exactly, Amy lee is nothing in comparison...Her band is so overrated...God.. - Ananya
I agree. I don't hate Evanescence so to speak, but Amy Lee's voice, while objectivity good, was always too over the top emotional for me. If you want a fantastic female fronted band, try Leaves' Eyes.
And of course I love Alice in Chains. Very close to being in my top ten bands. - IronSabbathPriest
I would say "don't base your opinion on the metal fanbase based on this site", but I'd know it wouldn't be true. At least half of today's metal fans don't have any respect for artists outside metal. Not trying to make myself seem like the perfect metal fan because I used to be ignorant too. - IronSabbathPriest
My brother used to play Evanescence non stop so I'll admit I'm slightly biased as to not liking them. But it's the reason I never listen to them. - IronSabbathPriest
Have you heard Evanescence live? They're kick ass live!
This is proof that you only made this list to hate on Evanescence. You don’t have to like them, but you don’t have to sit here and complain about them (especially since they’re obscure now) when you could just listen to bands you like (the FEW bands you like). - DCfnaf
If you go through everything in their discography (including demos), they are fairly diverse.
They did Nu Metal, Alt Rock, Slowcore, Ambient, Symphonic Rock, Neoclassical Darkwave, Grunge, Piano Rock, Electronic Rock, and some other genres I probably missed (most of these are evident in their many demos).
So, why yes, all they've made is Pop Rock... - wrests
No they have electronic elements to and gothic rock aesthetics they're varied.
Actually Evanescence are very varied
I think "Something In Your Mouth" is worse, but "Rockstar" is definitely a garbage Nickelback Song. - DCfnaf
Evanescence isn’t pop rock.
As for variety, they’ve done Nu-Metal ("Bring Me to Life"), Alternative Rock (Most of The Open Door), Piano Rock ("My Immortal", "Lost in Paradise"), Neoclassical Darkwave (Synthesis), Symphonic Rock (Synthesis, Fallen), Piano Ballads ("Hello", "Good Enough"), Orchestra ("Lacrymosa", "Your Star", Amy with "Speak to Me"), etc. Also, the band uses electric guitars, pianos, violins, an entire orchestra, harp, and choirs within their discography.
Do I even need to continue criticizing this godawful list? - DCfnaf
Evanescence can't help it. Memes became overrated. - Userguy44
Have you heard any of their songs beside Bring Me to Life?
...what? So are Evanescence, more so than AiC actually
Have you never heard of the term "Quality over quantity"? The more releases an artist has, the more likely it is that they rushed some of them out. I'd prefer 1 good release every few years over several filler-filled releases in 1 year (looking at you, Future). - Zach808
By that logic, Blood on the Dance Floor must be musical gods because they have a lot of releases. - wrests
So? Evanescence will release more
They’re more consistent.
This list screams elitism, and this entry proves that you don’t know what you’re talking about. - DCfnaf
They're still together.
Evanescence are still together aren't they?
That's not a reason. 'Influential' and 'good' are totally different things.
What a stupid reason. - wrests
Mike Starr is a god! - Userguy44
Finally an unbiased reason
Eh that's debateable.
Alice in Chains is a 4 musician band, and if not for 2 drug overdoses, would likely retain all their original members. Evanescence is a 5 musician band, much higher turnover. - Ned964
