These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Broken Base: For many, many reasons their Broken Base is huge:
They had this with the leaving of Ben Moody. Many fans love The Open Door and their Self Titled Album, and think that both are as good as the original while diverging into different sounds. However, there is a large fan base that says Fallen was the best album hands down, and the other two were no where near close because Amy Lee isn't as talented as Ben Moody.
There is also a section of fans that took great offense to Amy Lee denouncing their Christian Rock undertones stating that "It was Ben's thing, I never viewed the music like that." Many fans who found the Christian tones the driving force were upset that Amy never viewed it that way.
There is also a Fallen / Evanescence fans who like their rockier more violent flat out rock/metal sound, which is rather sad/downbeat lyrically and The Open Door fans who like the focus on build and more classical elements, with more abstract lyrics and sarcasm.
Covered Up: Tourniquet is a cover version of My Tourniquet, written and first sang by Soul Embraced, former drummer Rocky Gray's other band.
Deader Than Disco: They were hit hard by Nu Metal becoming Deader Than Disco; thus bringing them from one of the most acclaimed, Grammy-winning, best-selling artists of 2003 to a largely forgotten act today (with the possible exceptions of "Bring Me to Life" and "My Immortal").
Ear Worm: You have to admit that most of their hits are outright catchy.
Origin has Even In Death, Anywhere and Away From Me.
Fallen has Going Under, Bring Me To Life, Everybody's Fool, Tourniquet, Imaginary and Taking Over Me
The Open Door has Sweet Sacrifice, Cloud Nine, Lacrymosa, Like You, The Only One and All That I'm Living For.
Evanescence has The Change, Made Of Stone, My Heart Is Broken, The Other Side, Erase This and Sick
Epic Riff: During the bridges of Even In Death, "My Immortal", (the rock version) Going Under, Whisper, Haunted and the chorus of "Tourniquet", which is almost sexy.
Fridge Horror: Listen to the lyrics to "Haunted"—it's about a girl being stalked and raped by someone; the wailing second chorus is meant to mimic her screaming.
Greeks Love Evanescence: And so do Brazilians and Egyptians. Amy Lee has a fairly large following in the Japanese Lolita scene as well.
Harsher in Hindsight: "My Immortal"'s video showing Amy Lee, Ben Moody and the band separately. Moody left after the video was shot (which was not lost on Amy Lee) and the other band members years after.
Heartwarming Moments: "Secret Door" and "Good Enough" both warm the heart with the love present in the songs. (And the effort)
Like You is mostly Tear Jerker material but has its two heart warming moments: "You're Not Alone" and "Nothing Real Love Can't Undo".
Hollywood Pudgy: Amy Lee certainly isn't fat by everyday person standards, but many people seem to refer to her as fat.
