Coti-Zelati has outdone himself in music for this album. Lacuna have come a long way since the first FULL LENGTH, "In a Reverie," which was in no way as good as their debut EP, "Lacuna Coil."
Cristina Scabbia soars again, while Ferro powers through. This beautiful, and melodic vocal interplay works superbly in the forever haunting "Entwined" and "Heaven's a Lie." Often compared to Evanesence, this band (who were around before Amy Lee, and her now split up band) are far superior. This talented sextet from Milan has done it again. Songs like "Comalies" will haunt you for days, as Cristina Scabbia's vocals once again attack and seduce. You need a heart of stone to resist her siren call. Well worth any amount of money that is charged.
Other standout tracks are "Heaven's a Lie" which is a beautiful blend of heavy and acoustic, "Entwined", "Unspoken" and the title track. Overall, Comalies certainly does not disappoint, and is an excellent effort from one of the hardest-working bands in the genre: they have taken their sound somewhere fuller and greater, and it certainly benefits from this. This is music to get your teeth into.
Swamped - Right from the get-go, this album presents itself to be something different to their previous work. Male vocalist Andrea Ferro really shines through in the verses and Cristina picks up the choruses. It's a very strong opener for the album and still remains in their live set. 8/10
Heaven's a Lie - A fan-favourite and one of the best tracks off this album. It has some great keyboard work in the intro complimented very well by the heavy, guitar driven verse. The choruses are very catchy and great to sing-a-long to live. 9/10
Daylight Dancer - Some pounding bass and synths kick this song off before Andrea begins singing the chorus. Cristina intertwins her voice with his towards the end until she powers into the chorus, accompanied by some racing double-bass drumming. A very strong song 8/10
Humane - This one is pretty keyboard dominated with the two vocalist twisting their lines around each other in an extremely effective way. While much slower compared to the previous 3, it is still quite a beautiful song, but fails to reach the hights of what's gone before. 7/10
Self Deception - A very pacey, Andrea dominated song that focuses on a guitar and bass pattern that repeats itself quite a lot.Read more ›
As most people (I guess), I originally discovered the band after reading an article on them because I had noticed how photogenic the singer Cristina is. They didn't appear my cup of tea, but I still downloaded a couple of songs to try them out. I then bought this album, and I must say I was very impressed. Andrea (male vocalist) is a very talented singer and shouter, Cristina's voice is perfect throught out, and the combination of keyboards and bass set up the perfect atmosphere for crushing riffs to come in (such as the ones on 'Swamped' and 'Tightrope').
There really isn't a weak song on 'Comalies', and I strongly recommend that any rock fan should purchase it, as it really is magnificent.
Overall, an easy 9/10. Great work.

Just the basic stuff of the band. If you compare the KarmaCode plate is Comalies a little disappointing. The album was the best song in my opinion heavens a lie song.Published 18 months ago by Sami Tamminen
This album is considered one of the best albums that Lacuna coil have ever done. Which might very well be the reason that this remastered Deluxe Edition has come out. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Earwig
This album is bland, repetitive and without any decent tracks. Each song seems to last just slightly too long and the writing is extremely simplistic. Read morePublished on 18 Feb. 2012 by Daltone
