so i woulnd't exactly say it's a blunder.
now this just may be lacuna coil's best, despite the shortness. unlike comalies and unleashed memories, this one is more rock/metal orientied than the gothic metal of those previous mentioned albums. Lacuna Coil are great but I never though they were that talented on their instruments until i heard this cd. Very very very good music here folks.
Drawbacks? I guess since it's a debut, christina hasn't yet found her singing style yet. i mean, it still sounds like her but sometimes it doesn't. still, excellent vocals by her.
but, unlike their other cds, the male vocals here are actually tolerable!
bascially, this is a lacuna coil cd for people who can't stand them. but if you can already stand them, then your giong to eat this up, just like me! now to review the great comalies...
Now onto the review, I describe the genre of lacuna coil as Progressive Doom Metal. All the instruments fit together in a extremly clean and melodic way, intensive transitions of male to female vocals and chorus make an atmosphere that surround and enfold the listener and Lacuna Coil exploit this "gift" intrinsically.
The first song, "No Need to Explain", is succumbing, their harmonic guitars melody and the powerful vocals of Cristina Scabbia overbursts. Second track "The Secret...", has one of the most brilliant male to female transitions and chorus ever! The third track, "This is my Dream", is my favorite track of the entire album, this is what I call and define as a "Progressive Doom Ballad", it starts with a numb rhythm and comes down to a middle-term, ending in their best speed, not loosing a piece of melody and rhythm. The fourth track, "Soul into Hades", makes an exceptional mix of clean rhythm guitars and hard distorted guitars, fits as a glove. The fifth song, "Falling", is a real balad.Read more ›

Lacuna Coil is NOT like any other band, and I think that it's rather sad that this amazing band is catagorized as a goth metal band, which is probably the reason why they're not... Read morePublished on Dec 17 2003

This band ABSOLUTELY destroys anything by the 'Gathering.' THe comparisons to that band are incorrect and wrong at best. Read morePublished on Sept. 21 2002 by tim
I owned this ep since it came out, and it was a huge tease.... I wanted more Lacuna Coil, and I wanted more of them sounding like their opening cut, No Need To Explain. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2002 by supraliminal
This is great stuff. Honestly, I never liked the Gathering much at all. Everyone seems to treat them as though they were the next great hope of metal. Read morePublished on Dec 16 2000 by David Greenwood

Lucana Coil is a Gothic-Metal band from Italy, featuring both a female and a 'clean' male vocalist. Lucana Coil's music is enjoyable and easy to listen to. Read morePublished on Sept. 17 2000
Lacuna Coil's self titled ep is a very melodic gothic metal cd. Not quite as heavy as "In a Reverie". Read morePublished on June 6 2000 by Hater of the Human Race
