5.0 out of 5 stars a great release, one of their better ones April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
a lot of bands release EPs as debuts for a variety of reasons. First of all,it's cheaper on them. if you just started as a band, would you have lots of money? Probably not. Second of all, it's faster to record (due to the shortness) so that helps too. a new band doesn't have time to not let their music be heard so they want it out as quickly as possible. Also, and more importanlty, it gives a fans a teaser, makes them want more. YOu here these 6 tracks and love them, you need more. so your going to buy their full lenght soon as it comes out.
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh... Sept. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
If I would have started my Lacuna Coil collection with this fairly mediocre debut, chances are I wouldn't have explored their far better later material. First blunder was debuting with an EP. Basically, it sounds rushed, like they just wanted to be heard instead of taking the time to produce a masterful work as we all know they are 110% capable of. Also, it's doom metal, a subgenre which doesn't even deserve to be called 'metal.' This is depressing music for suicide freaks, not for those of us who are looking for meaning in music. But the biggest downfall comes in the vocal regime. Cristina Scabbia hadn't perfected her voice yet, and sounded like she was straining her vocal cords in many of the songs. I've always thought Andrea Ferro sounded like James Hetfield on a small dose of helium, but he doesn't sound so good on here either. Basically, a combination of soft and boring music coupled with mediocre vocals made this a fairly below-par start for a band that has since proved to be one of the most unique and capable in the music industry. But then again, some of the greatest bands ever (Opeth, Nightwish, Metallica, Symphony X) came out with not-so-stunning debuts. And no matter how soft or bland it is, it is worlds better than anything by that overrated atrocity of a band known as The Gathering. Anyway, I wouldn't suggest starting your Coil collection here, but once you've gotten Comalies (their near-flawless new one) and Unleashed Memories, and maybe even In a Reverie, then you can get this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, unique debut May 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have to laugh when I read all of the reviews for Lacuna Coil's CD's; every reviewer struggles to define what "style" or "type" of rock this very talented band plays. I've seen comparisons to everyone from The Gathering to Queensryche - that's a pretty wide spread! The fact is, Lacuna Coil does not sound like anyone else. They do have tag-team male/female vocals like many Gothic/Doom metal bands, but the male vocals here are 'clean,' with no grunts or growls. They also play somewhat dark, melancholy music, but there is an overall sense of lightness, maybe even fun, weaved into their sound and that is what gives them their unique quality. Christina Scabbia has one of the most beautiful, haunting voices you'll ever hear, and Lacuna Coil's songs are appealing to anyone who likes rock...no matter what "style" they usually prefer. The most amazing thing about this debut is that, as good as it is, each of their subsequent CD's has each been better than the last. The only reason this one gets only 4 stars is because it is a bit short (only 6 songs).

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful... best lacuna coil album ever March 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Lacuna Coil live in a local portuguese show with a band widely known by the name of Moonspell. They acted together, Lacuna Coil opened for moonspell, I didn't know lacuna coil until then. It simply turned out that if I could, I'd choose moonspell to open up for lacuna coil instead. They played only 3 or 4 of their songs, I don't precisely recall as it was long ago. The only thing I can say is that It was and will always be one of the most memorable shows that I've attended to and that it wouldn't happen otherwise if it wasn't exclusively for Lacuna Coil.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godsend
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 more

2.0 out of 5 stars Seek your doom fix elsewhere...
First, the whole album is mixed like a pop album. It's bright, sparkly, with the parts surgically detached, sounding anywhere from alternative (think: opening riff) to cardboard... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars The Big Tease
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 more

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated, amazing music
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 more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ep that showed hints of the greatness to come
Lacuna Coil's self titled ep is a very melodic gothic metal cd. Not quite as heavy as "In a Reverie". Read more
