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 ›

The vocal production is ruining the album.The vocals are so hidden in the mix,you can not really hear a word they sing. It is typical for the time for this kind of music though. Read morePublished on March 2 2012 by Mr. George S.
the music is way more talented, the lyrics are way better, and the singer is hotter, this album is almost flawless, they are an incredible band and deserve more credit than that... Read morePublished on July 9 2004 by A. Sipe
I don't know what the hell some of these people are talking about. This CD sounds so lame and dated it's not even worth joking about. Read morePublished on March 13 2004 by Jbomb
Lacuna Coil are amazing.
They blend heavy guitar with beautiful melodies.
They have both a male and female vocalist, both of whom contribute greatly to the band. Read more
At first I didn't get this whole "Goth" metal thing. But now I understand the significance of this beautiful, yet punishing style of music. Read morePublished on Nov. 19 2003
I'm usually a fan of heavy music, but I came across this through an article in Revolver Magazine. Since I couldn't find it in stores, I had to get a special order on it. Read morePublished on Sept. 25 2003 by James Vornes
