For all the dark moodiness its music contains, Evanescence's first live CD/DVD package, "Anywhere but Home," is a snapshot of a good-natured band enjoying the months it spent on the road behind its breakthrough album, "Fallen." Onstage at a Paris concert, frontwoman Amy Lee alternates between whirling like a gothic ballerina and sedately playing the ivories; drummer Rocky Gray, guitarists John LeCompt and Terry Balsamo and bassist William Boyd rock as determinedly as she sings. Bathed in sapphire-colored lights, Evanescence rips through 13 tunes, performing as tightly on closing song "Whisper" as it does on opener "Haunted." Highlights are the different dimension the band adds to Korn's "Thoughtless" and how it turns "Farther Away" into a throbbing primal scream. The unity the audience feels during "My Immortal" is shown in an aerial shot of the crowd swaying and singing along with Lee's piano. The DVD's extras expose the quintet as a pack of goofy pranksters.—CLT
