I can honestly say this is now my favourite Lacuna Coil album. I loved Comalies to death and really enjoyed their earliest tracks, but this CD stands out to me as a huge step forward. It could well be the effect of the far superior production elements - the vocal layering is particularly powerful. I've always been of the opinion that the male vocals can sound poor when compared alone with Cristina's amazing voice, but the blending and echo effects work extremely well here. It's much more mature. I thought I might be disappointed with this album, as it had so much to live up to and attempt to exceed, but it surpassed all of my expectations. It will appeal to LC fans and first time listeners alike, I think. A fresh yet surprisingly true-to-the-original cover of the Depeche Mode track Enjoy The Silence is a great finish to the CD. 5 out of 5.
