Since their formation in 1972, and with each successive release Lacuna Coil have developed and matured. Unleashed Memories, their best to date, is the album that sets them aside from other bands. Quality of production is the least of this album's achievements, difficult to describe as anything other than Lacuna Coil, Unleashed Memories has to be one of THE albums of 2001. Cristina Scabbia's melodic harmonious vocals counterpoint Andrea Ferro's characteristic rock gravel and with Waldemar Sorycht's production, two guitars, bass, and percussion combine to create a well-balanced ethereal rock CD. Highlights include a re-working of the excellent "Senzafine", whilst "When A Dead Man Walks" should be released as a single. Sub-Genre pigeon-holing Goth, Metal, Grunge, Punk just doesn't work with Lacuna Coil, there maybe echoes of musical influences but they are very hard to detect. Whatever style of Rock music you like then this is definitely one for your collection.
