Andrea's vocal performance is perfect and trades off to Cristina so seamlessly.

I have to laugh when I read all of the reviews for Lacuna Coil's CD's; every reviewer struggles to define what "style" or "type" of rock this very talented band plays. I've seen comparisons to everyone from The Gathering to Queensryche - that's a pretty wide spread! The fact is, Lacuna Coil does not sound like anyone else. They do have tag-team male/female vocals like many Gothic/Doom metal bands, but the male vocals here are 'clean,' with no grunts or growls. They also play somewhat dark, melancholy music, but there is an overall sense of lightness, maybe even fun, weaved into their sound and that is what gives them their unique quality. Christina Scabbia has one of the most beautiful, haunting voices you'll ever hear, and Lacuna Coil's songs are appealing to anyone who likes rock...no matter what "style" they usually prefer. The most amazing thing about this debut is that, as good as it is, each of their subsequent CD's has each been better than the last. The only reason this one gets only 4 stars is because it is a bit short (only 6 songs).

I bought this CD without ever even hearing their music (a friend recommended them to me), I plopped it in my CD player and utterly flipped out! I couldn't believe just how good this CD was! This CD hasn't left my CD player since I bought it! From the very first song right up until the last song...It KICKS! The best way to describe Lacuna Coil is similar to Queensryche & The Gathering. Light, refreshing, progressive, technical metal with a female vocalist. If you're tired of the same ol' metal, listen to Lacuna Coil! When I first heard the first song on this CD, it brought me back to the very first time I heard "Queen Of The Ryche" by Queensryche. Lacuna Coil's music is not as heavy as the first few Queensryche albums, but, their music is JUST as exciting!
This is simply one of the best CD's I've ever bought! EVER! By the way, their latest CD is awesome too. No dissapointments here. This group is going places.....

I've noticed that Lacuna Coil's EP isn't the most well-liked thing in their catalog. I can understand that completely but if you can't see the beauty you're given with this, then you must be blind. EPs aren't something I necessarily like because it seems as though every band simply re-releases the songs from the EP onto a different CD where they, most of the time, completely redo the song. In Lacuna Coil's case however, aside from Falling, no song has been re-released on a different CD which means that this is all fresh material that the beginning Lacuna Coil fans probably haven't heard yet.

No Need To Explain is by no means LC's best opening track, nor is it their best song period. Bear in mind though that this is simply the beginnings of a band that rose up to become an extraordinary group. If you keep that in the back of your head throughout this EP then you'll be fine. No Need To Explain is one of this CDs stronger moments that shows Cristina's vocal abilities quite well on this release. The Secret... shows Lacuna Coil's trademark sound, that being Andrea and Cristina trading off on vocal duties. There's a nice guitar part after the first chorus that is really catchy too. This Is My Dream is the EPs true highlight. Andrea's vocal performance is perfect and trades off to Cristina so seamlessly. I've tried to describe this very song to people but I always come up short, never doing the song the justice it deserves. Soul Into Hades shows Cristina at her peak on this CD, though the rest of the song seems a bit bland. Falling, alongside This Is My Dream, is the other highlight this disc offers. Falling is very dreamy with excellent acoustics putting the vocals on display very nicely. This is another song I find almost impossible to describe.

I first saw Lacuna Coil live in a local portuguese show with a band widely known by the name of Moonspell. They acted together, Lacuna Coil opened for moonspell, I didn't know lacuna coil until then. It simply turned out that if I could, I'd choose moonspell to open up for lacuna coil instead. They played only 3 or 4 of their songs, I don't precisely recall as it was long ago. The only thing I can say is that It was and will always be one of the most memorable shows that I've attended to and that it wouldn't happen otherwise if it wasn't exclusively for Lacuna Coil.
Now onto the review, I describe the genre of lacuna coil as Progressive Doom Metal. All the instruments fit together in a extremly clean and melodic way, intensive transitions of male to female vocals and chorus make an atmosphere that surround and enfold the listener and Lacuna Coil exploit this "gift" intrinsically.
The first song, "No Need to Explain", is succumbing, their harmonic guitars melody and the powerful vocals of Cristina Scabbia overbursts. Second track "The Secret...", has one of the most brilliant male to female transitions and chorus ever! The third track, "This is my Dream", is my favorite track of the entire album, this is what I call and define as a "Progressive Doom Ballad", it starts with a numb rhythm and comes down to a middle-term, ending in their best speed, not loosing a piece of melody and rhythm. The fourth track, "Soul into Hades", makes an exceptional mix of clean rhythm guitars and hard distorted guitars, fits as a glove. The fifth song, "Falling", is a real balad.
