5.0 out of 5 stars STILL MY FAVORITE!, August 19, 2003
By Mr D.
Format:Audio CD
I have all four Lacuna Coil albums and In a Reverie is the most consistent. Their are outstanding songs in each of Lacuna Coils four albums but in my opinion this album has all quality songs with no filler. This is Lacuna Coils first full length album and it's still my overall favorite. Don't get me wrong, subsequent releases Unleashed Memories and Comalies are both super releases but I rate - In a Reverie - just slightly higher, on the basis of having the most songs I really like, such as Falling Again, Circle, Stately Lover, Cold and the incredible To Myself I Turned. These are all 5 star songs and the rest are at least 4 star.
Unlike most other Italian bands, like Rhapsody, which concentrated on epic power metal, Lacuna Coil devoted themselves to melodic gothic, hence heroic, folkloric influences are missing. Female singer Cristina Scabbia and singer Andrea Ferro share the mic and do a very good job at it. They supplement each other perfectly and give each song a special PUNCH. Cristina's voice, while not quite on a par with other European divas such as Floor Jensen, is quite pleasant to listen to. It is deeper than most and a quality that fits Lacuna Coil's music(which is somewhat progressive)perfectly. Needless to say Lacuna Coil would not be where they are today without Christina.
It seems to me that of all the wonderful goth-metal bands of Europe, Lacuna Coil has the best chance of making an impact in America. They have many songs that would not be out of place on an alternative, heavy metal or even top 40 radio format and they have a small but growing following in the states. This summer they are touring the states as the opening act for Danzig. It seems that Lacuna Coil is bigger than Danzig but I guess not in the states.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and brooding February 20, 2005
By Tom Z
Format:Audio CD
In a reverie is by far the darkest recording ever produced by Lacuna Coil. From the seeping overtones of despair to the depressed, ethereal ambience conjured by the overall asthetic, the listener is throughly engulfed in torrents of melancholy.

Every riff holds a dark, entrancing quality that will contrast occasionaly with a more upbeat part to enhance it's effect. Cristana Scabbia's depressed, doomed vocal delivery could not fit this album more. Her voice flows along with the music like it's a part of it rather than a separate element. The drums, unlike a lot of doom/gothic bands, are also fairly well done. Of course there are limitations to what you can do on drums when your band is moody and slow paced, but beside that point this is a superb exhibition. Lacuna Coil is one of those bands that have no weak link in their instrumental sound. Unfortunatly that can't be said about the two vocalists, which brings me to why I must give this otherwise exceptional release four stars.

Andrea Ferro is a terrible singer, there just isn't any way around it. On their latter two releases, Comalies and Unleashed Memories he's tolerable, if a bit obnoxious. On the first two releases, this album and the Lacuna Coil EP he's downright awful. It's a rare moment when he's ever on tune or in the correct key. Lacuna Coil would truly be better off without him.

Overall, In A Reverie is an almost top tier doom/gothic album held back some by one member's lack of talent. Fans of Anathema, Tiamat, Paradise Lost, The Gathering, Alas, November's Doom, Rapture, Katatonia, Midnatasol, Leave's Eyes, Dreams Of Sanity, etc... will most likely enjoy this album. Converesly, fans of Lacuna Coil would probably enjoy the bands above as well. So if you haven't already, check them out if you have the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Destined for classic status. May 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Lacuna Coil, In a Reverie (Century Media, 1999)
For over a year now, I've been trying to decide which is better: Lacuna Coil's most recent slab of melodic metal, Comalies (reviewed a few weeks back), or their debut full-length, In a Reverie. I still can't figure it out.
In Comalies' defense, it's a more musically coherent album, with a decided direction to it. Everything fits together very well, without that coherence sacrificing the incredible hookworthiness of the songs therein. In a Reverie, on the other hand, is a more exuberant album, produced by a band who seemed, at the time, more willing to take chances. The sound here is more polished than on their first release, a five-song EP (the only real detraction of In a Reverie being a remake of one of the songs on that EP, as unnecessary as Evanescence's recent redoing of their own "My Immortal," and for exactly the same reason; overorchestration kills the spare, desolate beauty of the original), there's not a track that isn't catchy enough to stay in your head for days, and the whole thing has a raw power. It's also not of the same brand of metal as Comalies, which has the band moving towards a more accessible sound; on In a Reverie, they just don't seem to care if anyone likes it but they. However, a whole lot of people liked it anyway, which is why they're still around (and finally, six years later, gaining the audience in America they should have had from the opening note of that first EP).
Everyone's introduction to Lacuna Coil should be "My Wings.

The vocal production is ruining the album.The vocals are so hidden in the mix,you can not really hear a word they sing. It is typical for the time for this kind of music though. Read more
