Posted by Pop Deflators on

Recap by Sarah Tijan     THE BITTER TRUTH Is An Emotional Expression Demanding To Be Heard (Album Review)     EVANESCENCE released their latest album today, after 10 long years. An album that reflects on pain and emotion felt from the death of her brother, Amy Lee poured those emotions into a stronger, much more put together album; a more mature album.
