Product Description

Italian six-piece Lacuna Coil are one of the hardest working & rapidly progressing gothic metal outfit of our times. Their dual-vocal approach featuring the heavenly voice of Cristina Scabbia juxtaposed with the harsh style of Andrea Ferro will appeal to fans of The Gathering, Theatre Of Tragedy & Nightwish. Unleashed Memories also includes last year's mini-CD, 'Halflife', as a bonus. Bonus tracks, 'Halflife', 'Trance Awake', 'Senzafine', 'Hyperfast', & 'Stars'. Century Media. 2001.

Amazon.com CD reviews tend to be full of hyperbole... if you went by the reviews here, you'd think every album made by every band was either a masterpiece, or sucks horribly.
But you know what... this is one of those albums that REALLY IS that good, and fully lives up to the praise lavished on it. Cristina's voice makes the band, and while the male singer Andrea has his moments (when he isn't screaming), it is Cristina and her incredible skill at weaving together compelling, beautiful vocal melodies that makes this album so good. Unleashed Memories is very catchy without being commercial. Many of the songs are 4 minutes+, giving the songs time to develop and the band room to stretch out, with several of the songs having short guitar solos (something I wish there were more of on the album).
Lacuna Coil has somehow struck a perfect balance on this album. It's far less repetitive than Comalies - which is a good album and was my introduction to the band, but it's clear that Comalies was written with the intention of taking the band to the "next level", and compromises were made so that they could break out on to corporate rock radio in the US. Unleashed Memories is the perfect blend between their 2nd album "In a Reverie" and Comalies.
The most amazing thing, though, is that several months after getting this album, I still listen to it every day! It hasn't left my car's CD player. This album is like musical crack, and it's Lacuna Coil's best so far.

I've had this album for quite some time now, and still I have a hard time finding the words to describe just how incredible this album/band is. This is definitely a CD that I can leave in my player for months on end, and it never seems to get old. This is by far my favorite album by my favorite band.
At the heart of Lacuna Coil lie their two vocalists, Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro. Cristina's voice is gorgeously melodic and her range is incredible, while Andrea Ferro's male vocals can go from harsh, deep growls to resonant spoken word almost seamlessly. Both are incredibly talented, and their contrasting vocals, rather than be caustic and grating on the ears, are beautiful and melodic. They complement each other perfectly!
Lacuna Coil has been described as Italian goth metal, or gothic rock. In my humble opinion, they really are their own genre. They have the crunching guitars characteristic of metal music, yet the vocals don't get buried under the guitars and drums. The arrangements on this album are amazing. Furthermore, their lyrics actually convey several great messages rather than consist of mere useless drivel and angst.
All are incredible tracks, and none make you want to hit the "skip" button. However, here are some that stand slightly above the rest:
Track 1: "Heir of a Dying Day" - Excellent opening song, with a great beat and a chorus that changes up the tempo a bit so that things don't get monotonous.
Track 2: "To Live is to Hide" - Probably my favorite track on this album. Once again, there is a tempo change between the verses and the chorus to change things up a bit. Excellent emotional lyrics with stellar performances from both vocalists.
Tracks 4 & 13: "Senzafine" - Two versions of this song, sung in italian, appear on the album.

Usually I'm a hardcore rocker who appreciates the heaviest music around, and loves to crank slayer maximum bass pretty much all day. Any exceptions could only be achieved through a band who has perfected the art of music, a band that makes you feel, a band that can turn the most savage murderer into the most spiritual poet, a band called Lacuna Coil.
I have all of Lacuna Coil's CDs, and I must say they never get exceedingly heavy or very heavy at all, however they are still my favourite band of all time. Why? Because they are beautiful on a level that nothing else can match, the singing is brilliant, and you can feel the harmonies, rather than just listen to the song.
Lacuna coil are a very beautiful and skilled band, any of their albums is a wonder waiting to happen, or a wonder that has already happened, this CD is no exception.
My favourite song on this album is the last song, Stars. I don't even know the lyrics, and usually like I said I like bands that go heavy as hell, but the beauty of Stars turns me into a soft loving romantic and graceful person. Nothing else can do that.
Great album, one that will stir your feelings as well as your spiritual side.

Unleashed Memories is a strong set of tunes that provides the launch pad for the follow-up Comalies. It isn't as "heavy" thanks in large part to the subdued guitar production--they aren't as monolithic as on Comalies, but at the same time they don't drown out the vocals like they tend to do on that cd.
The strongest aspect here is LC's use of melodies and the relationship between the vocals and music that borders on exotic.
They have no peers in that arena. Cristina's sense of melody is on a whole different level than anyone else and gives the music such a strange, ethereal element.
There is nothing on here that I would consider radio friendly, which is actually a good thing because that means it requires a degree of concentration and absorption to appreciate what's on offer.
This isn't background music, this is music as art, unlike
the Lacuna Coil copycat bands which are becoming more prevalent and sadly are overtaking them in the popularity department.
I would officially give this collection 3 firm stars, but add a star for the last song "Stars", which is absolutely a trance-inducing piece of work that by comparison reveals just how plastic and soulless popular music is today.
