Dont want to bore everyone with a track by track disection of this album, suffice to say it has plenty for everyone, and hopefully will set the band on course for more worldwide recognition, which is always nice if your into a band. I would echo the other favourable reviews of the individual tracks, so you'll probably have read those already! I'm a 52 year old fan of all the usual classic rock stuff, and have been concerned and saddened by the gradual passing of some of my all time heroes, Ronnie Dio, for example.
Ronnie would be delighted to know that there actualy are new(ish) bands out there ready to assume the mantle. I saw Lacuna at Exeter on Tuesday last, and will definatly be booking for the next tour!
Lets not make life too complicated, Shallow life is great rock, aimed at the more mainstream rock fans. There really is nothing not to like. Having heard this, I then discoverd Karma code which is an all time classic by anyones interpretation of the word. Buy both, and book your gig tickets! How come I got into Lacuna?? ...via Megadeth and Dave Mustaine/Christinas duet on "Tout la monde". Anyway, anything Lacuna is ok by me from now on, just glad there will be bands like them around for the next ten years or so, for dinosaurs like me to go and see, until I die of too much rock!
...LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLL!
