Good

ProCatchy, rocky well produced album

ConsVerging on mainstream, lyrically a little weak

A bit of background Lacuna Coil are best described as a goth rock sextet from Milan. They were formed in 1994 with the original name Sleep of Right and then Ethereal before becoming Lacuna Coil (Empty Spiral) and consist of lead singers Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro, guitarists Cristiano...

Good

ProSome good lyrics and riffs, interesting theme

ConsVery 'samey-samey' and forgettable.

I've been a fan of LC since Karmacode, which remains one of my favourite albums. I'm not afraid (pun not intended) to say this has been the album I was most looking forward to this year.

Super

ProMany Great Songs

ConsDifferent to past works

When I first bought Shallow Life and gave it a listen, apart from being pretty blown away I thought "wow, they sound so different". Shallow Life was brilliant but if you take a listen to there other albums and EP's (Lacuna Coil, In a Reverie, Halflife, Unleashed Memories, Comalies and Karmacode)...

“Spellbound by Shallow Life”

published 24/09/2010

ProCristina's great vocals

ConsLack of native language tracks

I've listened to the album a few times and enjoyed it. It was well worth the wait. It embraces all of their hallmark style as well as incorporating new styles. The production values are excellent and although still highly Americanised, as on Karmacode, it's still very Lacuna Coil. The two vocal...
