Open The Door
**Amy Lee is the “real deal”, even though the sophomore effort is good; it isn’t as strong as the first release. True Evanescence fans will stick with the band.
**The Killers are getting a beat down from the critics. The once beloved critic band seems to be the most hated. Never count on press. The Killers took a chance by re-inventing themselves and the press doesn’t seem to embrace change. If you don’t evolve you will not haveÂ a career. I commend the Killers for re-inventing themselves even though the record is weak. Great first single but the record is filled with mediocrity.
How do you become a career band? Put out great records.
**Take a deep breath and soak this in. Hinder is clocking ’80k’ records a week. Cha Ching!
No more evidence is needed that the average consumer is a sucker for 80′s metal power ballads. Firehouse “Love of a Lifetime”, Poison “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn”, Skid Row “I Remember You”, Motley Crue “Home Sweet Home”, Warrant “Heaven”, White Snake “Is this Love”, Hinder “Lips of Angel”. These are 2x platinum artists. Why? People can relate to passionate power ballads.
**Not all celebrities and publicity gimmicks sell records.
