What happens when one discovers for the first time that all that has been learnt in life is a lie? What happens when one discovers that heaven does not exist, that all the inconsistencies people have been spreading all these years are actually false, that life is in every one's own hands and there is no unseen force guiding the destiny? What happens is Unleashed Memories.

A lonely evening, almost 15 years ago now. Pitch black outside, cut by dense streaks of fog. No sounds, no noises; the quiet standstill of nature slowly freeing itself from the grasp of winter.

As soon as I plugged in the CD, I thought that the verses that were coming outside of the stereo were spoken, not sang. I had the sudden, clear impression that someone else was still awake that night, not too far away, whispering to me words of anguish, and self-struggle. Someone could not further hide the feelings in her chest any further, and opened her heart abruptly, emotions flowing like a torrent: warm, inescapable, pure. Only a little later I noticed the music, a new melody, that could be either potent or melancholic, yet in each case so perfectly fused with that stream of sentiments spilling over and over.

Rating: 9 I believe this is the most varied lacuna coil album, and also for that matter their best. Few would argue that scabbia's voice soars with beauty on songs such as 'Purify' and 'Senzafine', and the epic imagery of 'Heir of a dying day' and 'Wave of anguish' make for a perfect opener and closer respectively. It may not be their heaviest, but it's certainly one of their most forward-thinking albums.

That is all, ladies and gents. I'll be fucked if this isn't one of the best examples of how to use female clean vocals in metal.

Too bad they repeat that chorus excessively in the song, after a while it becomes really tiresome.

Quite the contrary, IMO. I've had the song on repeat for over an hour the other day, and still couldn't get enough of the chorus.
