For about an hour i have been trying to write a review. I have revised and restarted so many times that i have lost count. It is so hard to compare this album to fallen. This is because Fallen sold MILLIONS of albums and to say that it was very successful would be an understatement. However The Open Door offers so much more than Fallen. With The Open Door you can really feel every emotion in the different songs. There are aggressive rock-out songs like "Sweet Sacrifice" and "Lithium" that really hit the spot when you're in the mood for a badass heavy song. There are gentle, calming, soothing and most of all happy songs such as "Good Enough" and to me; the main emotion missing from Fallen was happiness. There are almost indescribable songs such as "Cloud Nine" and "Snow White Queen" that really pack a punch yet are so unique that you may have to listen to them again to discover how much you really like the songs whereas you probably immediately adore the others. Songs like "The Only One" and "Lose Control" are the most different and probably the catchiest songs of the album once you've sang along with the lyrics. Coming to the end of the album is "Lacrymosa" that combines beyond amazing vocals with great guitar playing and stunning classical symphony. What's left if your still begging for more is "Like you" which is a sad and brilliant melody and probably my all time favourite song; "Your Star". I don't quite know how to describe "Your Star". It starts melodically and peacefully with vocals that top all other songs, and then it gets going with the introduction of the guitars and drums, and changes to a completely outstanding track that deserves to be listened to again and again, with an utterly immense ending.Read more ›

Having read some bad reviews, I was a bit dubious as to whether this would be as good as Fallen. However, I listened with an open mind and I can't see what the critics were on about! It's just as good as Fallen (admittedly not better - but that's a tough album to beat). Highlights include the single 'Call me when you're sober', the beautiful and haunting 'Good enough', and 'Lacrymosa' - anyone familiar with the original Lacrymosa from Mozart's Requiem will have chills going down their spine just like I did. Anyone who liked Fallen should have this in their collection too, it's well worth the money.

After reading some of the previous critics reviews, and having heard only the `samples` on the Amazon Web Page, it was with caution that I purchased this CD. Fallen was one of the `landmark` albums of this century so far, and as is nearly always the case when an artist begins it's recording career with such a powerful and mature work, the follow up piece is often received critically. Having listened to `The Open door` several times, I simply cannot understand the negatives expressed by prior reviewers. It is beautifully written and produced. The musicianship is both powerful and at the same time harmonious with Amy's ever maturing vocals. The album builds throughout, and reaches a crescendo of creativity in the pen-ultimate song. What's more, it really isn't that different from `Fallen`. It is definitely more complex, and will take a little longer for the songs to become familiar, but I hasten to guess that after a while, this album could well eclipse it's much vaunted predessor. We live in an age of instant gratification. If something , whether it be music, food, a film or whatever, doesn't give an immediate thrill, then many just move on to the next offering. I recommend this excellent album most highly, and I am sure that some of those initially disappointed by it, will, if patient come to thrill to it just as much as they did/do with `Fallen`.

I bought this and played it in my car, as i have a long and boring motorway journey every day, and as i already had Fallen in the changer i was able to directly compare the two. And at first i think this didn't help - I felt that those who had levelled criticism at this album were right. It does seem a little bland and underwhelming at first listen compared to its catchier predecessor.

However i stuck with it and after the third time of listening i really started to get into some of the tracks. I must admit that turning it up loud did help!

I think that once you give a bit of attention to the album, some of the subtlety and originality comes out in most of the tracks, which i think are actually all more 'individual' than on Fallen.

I still think Fallen is the best album, as it has that real punchy and instant lure that Open Door lacks, but if you are willing to give this a go as a less 'commercial' album it works really well. My favourite tracks at the moment are Call me when you're Sober and Only One; but that's liable to change as i listen and i think that's what makes this album interesting.
