The Open Door is the second studio album by American rock band Evanescence, released on September 25, 2006, by Wind-up Records. The record symbolizes a new beginning for Evanescence, with Amy Lee in full creative control, incorporating new elements into their previous musical styles, including her classical influences, industrial rocksymphonic metalprogressive rockelectronica and the use of choirs on several songs. The album was written in the course of 18 months, and the recording process was delayed as a result of guitarist Terry Balsamo‘s stroke. Most of the songs were co-composed by Lee and Balsamo, with production handled by Dave Fortman.

The Open Door received generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised its musical scale and Lee’s musicianship and assuredness, while some criticized the band’s sound relative to their debut. The song “Sweet Sacrifice” received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance, and the band won Album of the Year at the MTV Australia Video Music AwardsThe Open Door debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling more than 447,000 copies in its first week. It topped the charts in Australia, Europe, Germany, Greece and Switzerland, and reached the top five in over 15 countries. The album was certified platinum by the RIAA just over a month after its release, and has since been certified double platinum. As of 2011, it has sold more than six million copies worldwide.
