I run out of superlative praise words for Lacuna Coil. My favourite band. I was very happy to see that this time round Andrea Ferro is actually getting some microphone time, as many fans believed that Unleashed Memories was a subtle way to phase him out of the band. While it is Ferro's curse that he will live in Cristina Scabbia's shadow when vocal talent is concerned, he comes through very well, and on tracks like "Angel's Punishment" very powerfully too.
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.

Since Lacuna Coil released Unleashed Memories last year, their sound has developed immensely: Comalies is fuller, more self-confident and heavier. The first track, "Swamped", is slow and commanding and it's hard not to be blown away by Christina's vocals in the first few bars. Indeed, on this album she can really pelt out the notes and her voice certainly seems to have now reached it's potential when it seemed slightly tamer on earlier albums, but the Coil's new strength of sound demands strong vocals. Andrea's male vocals are also impressive and actually fit in this time rather than being like a misshapen piece in an otherwise perfect jigsaw.
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.

For me, the last great Lacuna Coil album, but I do need to listen to some of the not so american sounding ones that came after Karmacode. I just have a preference for their more melodic, european sounding albums. Still a great band though, and I'd still see them live.

This is the CD i like the best of LC. Most of the songs are more hard rock then on the other CD's. It works on parties, on the bus or just with your friends at home. If you like Sirena, Stratovarius or Within Temptation you would love this album. A lovely album in your collection!

This was the album that really made people sit up and begin listening to what Lacuna Coil had to say (or sing). It has a lot more depth than their two previous albums: the good debut 'In a Reverie'; and the rather (in my opinion) poor second album 'Unleashed Memories'. However, this album presents us with a different stlye of music. Here we have much more emphasis of heavy metal riffs and good vocals. The songs, on the whole are strong and this album brough Lacuna Coil into the ranks of 'mainstream' metal. Anyway, time for a track by track run through:

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.

This is one of the more recent of Lucauna Coil's albums (though it's a few years old now) and was the first I heard. I still consider this arguably their most accessible album. Though I'd recommend 'In a Reverie' if you plan on buying only one LC album, this comes a close second and is perhaps slightly easier for a new listener.

This really is a fantastic album. I have to admit this music is not normally my style; I am usually listening to something along the lines of Slayer, Lamb of God or The Haunted, however, this album is a breath of fresh air.
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.
