When i bought this, finally, i had doubts that i wouldbe able to listen to it- in the past my experience with live recorded music cd's has been poor, becauise on some all you can hear is the crowd, plus if the singer cant sing, it shows up badly.

However, amy lee can obviously sing live very very well. The audio cd is perfect, with 2 tracks that werent on the last one. There were also little added touches as she was singing live, like the way she sang, so it made it nicer to listen to- didnt feel so fake.

The dvd has many features, which i didnt expect. It has four music videos- going under, bring me to life, everybodys fool and my immortal. All good videos.

It has the concert, which is basically the same as the audio cd, except you get to watch it aswell. The only problem i had with that was that the camera man didnt stay in one place very long, so there was never a good shot of the band or concert, which defeats the object of the dvd really. I often found myself hitting pause if i wanted to see a detail (like amy lee's amazing clothes!).

There was also an extras section, with lots of funny film footage put together when the band were on the road, adding up to about an hours in total.

Overall, though, i found this is great, and i would reccomend it to anyone who listens. The bonus is the pretty cd cover.

I think most people are being mislead into thinking this is a NEW ALBUM - IT ISNT, its a recording of one of their tour dates in Paris with additional DVD footage, all of the above rock especially the bands rendition of "Thoughtless." The CD does contain the studio recorded track "Missing" which wasnt included on Fallen, if you dont have this track, then the DVD - CD combo is a must.
I gave it only four stars because although the footage is great (Amy drunk is a must see!!) it is a bit random, there are also no real interviews as such. But apart from that for the price your paying its worth every ££££, look out for the hidden live video too........

I have to say that I've watched this video over and over. I love the songs and am so glad they included four music videos. Amy Lee is a great front-woman and in my opinion in the top three female rock vocalists in the world - along with Julianne Regan of All About Eve and No Doubt's Gwen Stefani.
I did, however notice that on occasion, Amy was singing harmonies with herself. I'm not sure whether this was backing tracks (which is a possibility as there was no keyboard player on stage, but there were certainly keyboards playing) or whether they added it in a studio afterwards. This isn't an uncommon practice though, even Roger Waters did this with The Wall Live in Berlin.
The sound quality is excellent with a choice of 5.1 surround or 2.0. Great to see Missing (studio version) included on the CD and the DVD (DVD as end titles to Behind the Scenes doc), which I hadn't heard before and love. Breathe No More (Live) was also new to me and a beautiful track.
I have to say that the Behind the Scenes "documentary" was something of a disappointment. I was hoping to learn something about this excellent band and maybe have an interview with Amy. Unfortunately it was little more than a lot of shouting, mooning and general larking around. It did give an insight into Amy Lee though. By some of the lyrics to her songs, you'd expect her to be introverted and pessimistic. Well she certainly doesn't appear to be. If anything, she's like a kid that really shouldn't be allowed to have sugary drinks. It was a nice surprise.
One other thing: the track list is wrong, Missing is not in the concert at all, it's a studio track played during the end titles (as I said before).
A must DVD for all fans. Brilliant concert and great videos. Roll on album No 2!

I am also a huge fan of Evanescence and I belive that the DVD/CD is fab. The DVD has the amazing performance from Zenith, Paris and as always the band are on top form. However, for me the backstage footage is what makes this DVD. Its is an hour long piece of them goofing around and being themselves which is great to see.
Now this matter of a bad cd, I thought that it was quite clear by the fact that since Ev havent actually released their 2nd album the content would not be all new. The tracks are the same as they are taken straight off of the DVD. This is why there is screaming in the background. In my opinion this adds to the cd as it gives you the atmosphere of being back at one of their gigs. The final track Missing (or the only redeeming feature as was said before!) is also not new, it is just unreleased, this song has been one of my favourites for a long time as it is truly beautiful, so at least we are in agreement about one thing. Ev are currently writing their new album and I believe this DVD/CD was released as there will be no more tours consisting of only the songs from fallen.

The problem with live albums is that is very difficult to capture the atmosphere and energy of being at the concert. It is very difficult to reproduce songs in a live setting to the same standard of the ones you hear on the bands CD. Most live performances will not be perfect, but the energy, and atmosphere when you are there at the gig often hide these imperfections. So without the sense of occasion of actually being there, the flaws are clear to hear when you listen to a live album, and you basically just get imperfect versions of tracks you already have on the studio albums.
This is sadly the case with 'Anywhere But Home's' live CD. Evanescence are a very good band and put on a great live show (I've seen them live and they were fantastic), but this live CD doesn't do them justice. If you never heard Evanescence before and heard this you would think it was pretty good, and if you were there in the crowd I am sure you really enjoy the performance. But anyone familiar with 'Fallen's very slick, highly finished production listening this CD could easily pick out the inperfections.
On a positive note, the inclusion of 'Breathe No More', 'Missing' and 'Farther Away', 3 songs left off the 'Fallen' album are all very good songs and any Evanescence fan who never heard them is really missing out. Also the piano led cover of KoRn's 'Thoughtless' is very interesting as Amy Lee twists a familiar song in a totally different direction.
The DVD is very well presented, the menu screens and the way the live footage is cut works very well. The DVD roduction in general looks very cool.
The concert on DVD is a lot better than it is on the CD, the visuals do go some way to recreating the concert atmosphere and hide many of the flaws so clearly heard on the CD.
