*: Tracks 11-15 from the tracklist shown below are the entire 'Halflife' EP, which was issued as a bonus.
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.
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.
