Framed

Evanescence, Framed

Framed

If you want to find great music videos, Y! Music is the place to go!  We were sitting around one night last week, reading all the great blogs here, when we noticed this at the top of the page:

Good Enough?  Actually, Evanescence's new video is GREAT!

Wow! It was almost like Y! Music had come alive and was taking us by the hand, directing us to the next installment of Framed.  Moreover, it was a clever play on words, because the name of the song in the video is... hold on, now, you're gonna love this... "Good Enough!"

I tell you, you couldn't write this stuff.  Not unless you work for Y! Music!  Which we do!

Anyway, we took the bait and checked out the new vid, and it's every bit as good as promised.  It's the new single from their '06 album, The Open Door, and, even though chanteuse Amy Lee is the only member of the band actually in the video, it's still great.  Things start melting, then bursting into flame, while Amy plays the piano... basically, it's like humanity's collective dream of what a great Evanescence video should be.  Take a look at these well-chosen stills and see if you don't agree.
