It will be one of the best, and most interesting purchaces you'll make IMO. I know I was floored when I first heard Lacuna Coil. It's a very impressive release from start to finish, and doesn't contain one bad track if you ask me. In fact, all of their releases are masterpieces from start to finish....
Lacuna Coil Rules!!!
For over a year now, I've been trying to decide which is better: Lacuna Coil's most recent slab of melodic metal, Comalies (reviewed a few weeks back), or their debut full-length, In a Reverie. I still can't figure it out.
In Comalies' defense, it's a more musically coherent album, with a decided direction to it. Everything fits together very well, without that coherence sacrificing the incredible hookworthiness of the songs therein. In a Reverie, on the other hand, is a more exuberant album, produced by a band who seemed, at the time, more willing to take chances. The sound here is more polished than on their first release, a five-song EP (the only real detraction of In a Reverie being a remake of one of the songs on that EP, as unnecessary as Evanescence's recent redoing of their own "My Immortal," and for exactly the same reason; overorchestration kills the spare, desolate beauty of the original), there's not a track that isn't catchy enough to stay in your head for days, and the whole thing has a raw power. It's also not of the same brand of metal as Comalies, which has the band moving towards a more accessible sound; on In a Reverie, they just don't seem to care if anyone likes it but they. However, a whole lot of people liked it anyway, which is why they're still around (and finally, six years later, gaining the audience in America they should have had from the opening note of that first EP).
Everyone's introduction to Lacuna Coil should be "My Wings.Read more ›
