Almost Undone - Sugar & Despair

Almost Undone Sugar & Despair

Combining the best of Evanescence and Kittie, Almost Undone present a choppy, chunky metal cocktail that's a little bit nü, a little bit jagged core (Crisis, Otep, Kittie). I never liked Evanescence, but Brenna White does a better job than Amy Lee or Morgan Lander combined, especially since Kittie has gone in that whole horrible metal-pop direction. The riffs are juicy and a bit avant garde (kind of recalling Crisis in the guitarwork as well), dripping with blood and precision, and the production really brings out strengths of Amost Undone.
