I was in Hot Topic about three weeks ago listening to some of their c.d.s. Instead of listening to a lot of the punk music, I decided to try their “hard core” section. I’m not normally into that kind of music. However, I stumbled upon a band called Flyleaf (MySpace Music Profile). They sound like what Evanescence should have sounded like. Now that I’ve had the c.d. for several weeks, I really recommend at least a listen. The music is clean, and some of the lyrics are pretty intellectual.
For an example of one of their thought-provoking songs, listen to Cassie. It’s about the girl who was killed in Columbine for saying she believed in God.
