On their 5th album, the Amy Lee led group toe down the nostalgic road. Hard dramatic drums, heavy guitars, emotional lyrics and delightful singing are all on display on the bitter truth. Amy's ever sweet vocals are hampered by poor mixing, alot of the time, she sounds so buried in the instrumentals. If you've enjoyed their work previously, there's every chance you'll find solace in this, but the bitter truth is that, the bitter truth could have been a whole lot better. A good listen.
