Guest review by
Cynic Metalhead
The reason I picked up this album is because I loved their Comalies record. In my nu-metal years, I listened to "The Ghost Woman And The Hunter", which left a very strong impression on me. I loved the vibe they created, it was amazing. I went further and checked out the band's debut (In A Reverie), followed by Karmacode and Unleashed Memories - a mind-blowing experience delivered by Andrea Ferro and co. I strongly believe these were the band's golden years, where they built some solid credibility and also managed to catch the attention of fans at large. By and large, Lacuna Coil have always succeeded to deliver moderately catchy tunes while featuring a beautiful Italian vocalist in Cristina Scabbia.

Linkin Park and Bullet For My Valentine WTF?! A thousand copy of a thousand copies.
To the death of love, the death of hope and the death of all beauty!

Very good album though it's still on the line of Shallow Life. I can also fell some similarities to Karmacode in the guitar riffs. One more album and they get rid of this dance thing.

I know I'll get some shit for this but I'm not one to pussyfoot. They sold out; pure and simple. Once "Shallow Life" hit I knew they'd go further and further into what they are now: commercial corporate rock. Look, many bands change and evolve over time - true artists have to - however, they manage to maintain at least most of their initial fanbase while expanding it. I gave this album a chance but all I heard was substandard music which is clearly contrived, not from the heart, simplified, watered down, and deliberately - that's right - commercial. So, like other bands who have done the same (and I need mention no names) I'm simply moving on from them as there are way too many other bands to focus on/listen to/support rather than wallow in disappointment over one.

Oh, and I love how in this day and age if one doesn't like someone or something they're automatically deemed a "hater", something that has become outmoded as it is absurd. Apparently if you have a differing opinion and simply don't like a certain person or band or whatever, some people - especially rabid fanboys (and in the case of this band most bark at you like flea-bitten mutts behind fences because they want to be in the good graces of diva-becoming Ms. Scabbia) and fangirls (and in the case of this band they're mostly tweens or just hitting their twenties and have no qualms spewing their adolescent/I'm-still-finding-myself-and-I-hate-the-world ire at you which is both cute and mildly annoying) - will protest and call you a hater solely based on your not liking who or what you see/hear, be it a musician/band, movie, or even a certain type of food.

"Haters gonna hate!" Wow, ghetto slang really does reach beyond its own. It's become too common and I'm surprised that holy lunatic Rick Santorum hasn't uttered it yet.

Seriously, they get worked up oh so easily over someone not being in accord with their own viewpoints, tastes, etc. and it's outright hilarious! They take themselves - and the music - far too serious! A lot of fans of this band are no exception. You ever walk past a vehicle and are momentarily startled when you hear loud, harsh barking...only to look to your left or right to find it's a little doggeh frantically jumping up and down while cursing you out in doggeh talk? Well, that's what it's like when I see such posts online. Then you go all Ace Ventura on them. "Oh chee booboo! Oh chee booboo bua bah!"

So, for those of you who stick with this band in spite of them becoming yet another commercial corporate rock band, have at it. I on the other hand will stick with bands who play from the heart, don't stray from their roots for, uh, commercial opportunities, and let it be.

Eish!! That's South-African for WTF...
I'm always amazed at the critics, the negative ones anyway... Oh, well, everyone has a right to an opinion...

However, a note on critique-ing Music in general: The first thing it needs to do, in my humble opinion, is entertain or move you. It basically needs to speak to your mind/heart. If it doesn't do that, and sometimes it does take a little time to click, it's not worth it - to YOU... However, other people, in different places in their lives, with different challenges facing/threatening them, with different backgrounds/cultures WHATEVA!!! may actually find it to be exactly what they need to express, in that moment, their feelings...

Oops, gone and went way too heavy there...

Eish!! Point is: Different strokes for different folks... Live & Let Live... & F the Rest...

(Thought the packaging was quite cool, got the double CD with the fold-open...)

If you are a fan of the band how can you be disappointed with this release? It sounds exactly like their previous three! They have a formula - and abide by it - that they feel works. Until they get bored with it I am gonna enjoy every release!

I love this album.
It's a bit different from their older material, but much closer to their older material than Shallow Life.
Sold out? As if! They're still as good as ever!

First Listen. Pretty disappointed. Too much Rock and not enough Metal.
Highlights: My Spirit, Trip The Darkness, End of Time.
Lowlights: The same old formula they have used once again. Electronics. Not enough Christina vocals.

I would be happier in the next 5 years if LC re-recorder their first 5 albums, 1 per year, instead of releasing any more of the same repetitive music from the last 3 albums...

P.S. The REM cover isn't too bad.

Why is there no review for this?

The album is good. Catchy, melodic hard rock.

Andrea Ferro ruins everything. His English is horrible, he's got terrible pronaunciation and accent. Too bad he's a founding member, they should kick him out of the band. He ruins the entire experience.

Not even close to their best "Comalies" or "Unleashed Memories", even the new "Delirium". Extremely commercial and uninspired (was the chorus of "Trip The Darkness" enough for a full album? no...) , though you can find a diamond in it. REM's cover. Why do they not make a cover album if they do it so well?
