Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune reviewed the Evanescence concert at the sold-out Congress Theatre on Wednesday (February 25). Kot says that singer Amy Lee “brings a dose of much-needed estrogen and sensuality to mainstream hard rock. She also flirts with religious imagery and the kind of moody, eye-liner-heavy melodrama that elevated the Cure into an arena act. Evanescence sounds as if it’s headed in the same direction with a sound that’s just slightly off-kilter enough to seem fresh, without really saying much of anything beyond ‘I tried to kill the pain, but only brought more’.” Chicagotribune.com has since removed the article.
