The album is hailed as a NuMetal classic, and perhaps the swan song to nu metal's reign as a whole, as it died out now long after the release -- this album and ''Music/{{Meteora}}'' were the last big success stories of the genre in the mainstream. The GenreBusting sound with female vocals made it appealing to all types of listeners -- from hard rock fans, to indie listeners, to teenage girls (and boys). The MultipleDemographicAppeal showed in its success. As for the album itself, the aforementioned GenreBusting really deserves to be mentioned, as people aren't sure what kind of genre to class it as. AlternativeMetal, NuMetal, GothicMetal, HardRock, {{Pop}}, AlternativeRock and (bizarrely) ChristianRock and {{Emo}} have been tagged to it.

''''Fallen'''' is the debut album by Music/{{Evanescence}}. Released in March 4, 2003. Powered by the megahit single "Bring Me to Life" originally made for the ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' soundtrack, it debuted at #7 with sales of 141,000. Uncharacteristically for an album that debuted in the lower half, it did not fall off immediately like others do. Instead, it kept on selling, even reaching a new peak of #3 nine weeks after release. Ultimately, it spent a whopping 58 weeks in the Top 20 of the chart. That's to say nothing of its sales, which sold a whopping 7.5 million in the United States alone. Overseas, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff it fared even better]], where its worldwide sales took it up to over ''17 million''. To put it in one way, it was the fourth best selling album of 2003.

The lyrical themes typically deal with {{Angst}} -- such as loss, heartbreak, and inner torment. The album was widely praised for making HardRock and NuMetal accessible to pop listeners, something that few had done before. Singles include "Bring Me to Life", "Going Under", "My Immortal", and "Everybody's Fool".

!!''Trope Me to Life''

* AlternativeMetal: This is the genre that the album is supposedly rooted in, and the elements are definitely there, but get blurred between all the genres that are mixed in (whether intentionally or not).
* {{Angst}}: It's everywhere in the album.
* BlackSheep: "Bring Me to Life", a Linkin Park style song with male vocals (the only one of its kind), and "My Immortal", a soft ballad that has no elements of metal. [[BlackSheepHit Those were also the two biggest hits from the album]].
* CoverVersion: "Tourniquet", a cover of [[ChristianMetal Christian]] DeathMetal band Soul Embraced, who also happen to hail from the same state of Arkansas.
* DueToTheDead: "Hello" is dedicated to Amy Lee's long lost sister, who tragically died when she was five years old. Because of CreatorBreakdown, she has never preformed it live.
* FaceOnTheCover: Amy Lee, a close up shot of her. Quite literal in terms of FaceOfTheBand.
* FauxSymbolism: They're christian, and the themes are there. But they reject the label -- see NotChristianRock below.
* GenreBusting: Take a look at the varied list of genres that this album has been labeled as, and tell me what you think this album belongs under.
* LighterAndSofter: The cover of "Tourniquet" is an alt metal cover of a death metal song, naturally this happens.
* LonersAreFreaks: "Imaginary" is about Amy being alone in her room, not wanting to leave.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Around a 6 for most of the album. "My Immortal" is a 1.
* NotChristianRock: The themes are FauxSymbolism. They have fiercely rejected the christian rock label, and for good reason -- it's unlikely the album would've sold like nuclear hotcakes if were tagged as "christian music". However, "Tourniquet" fits the genre, being a cover of a christian death metal song.
* NuMetal: The album was influenced by ''Music/HybridTheory'', and it shows. To this day, it's regarded as the last big success of the genre, before {{Emo}} and {{Metalcore}} took its place.
* ObsessionSong: "Taking Over Me" is about this, though the context is vague.
* {{Pop}}: It's unclear if they were influenced by pop music or take on pop sensibilities. Either way, this went a long way to making it accessible to the general public.
* PublisherChosenTitle: "Bring Me to Life" was originally going to be called "Wake Me Up Inside", which honestly made more sense.
* RapRock: Amy doesn't rap in the album, however "Bring Me to Life" features Paul [=McCoy=] rapping in a very Mike Shinoda-esque manner.
* {{Sampling}}: "Haunted" samples a heartbeat monitor for dramatic effect.
* SpecialGuest: Paul [=McCoy=] of 12 Stones appears in a back-and-forth Music/LinkinPark-like duet in "Bring Me to Life", uncharacteristic of their normal material. In fact, many listeners at the time mistakenly thought that Mike Shinoda was the guest vocalist.
