Sound — 3
Overall the sound is pretty much identical with eachother. I understand some artists want to keep the same theme and sound going without being lured away from the sound theyve been based on, but this is just too far. A few songs come out on a powerful riff but cannot be even close to powermetal. There is nothing that pounces out at me enough to suggest this as thier best album.
Lyrics — 1
The lyrics just don't make sense and I'm sorry. I'd rather listen to some poser lyrics that would make more sense then this. None of the lyrics send out any message or carry any emotion. They need good lyrics to give some color to the song. Plus in thier previuos albums thier song Heavens a Lie doesnt even relate to religon. The need to know what thier talking about before they start singing it. Her singing cant even touch those of Amy Lee at all. Her vioice is pretty but I've heard better. And I don't like the ying yang style of her and her male parter taking turns singing, it just doesn't mix right.
Overall Impression — 5
There is not much that you can compare to other artsits really. I do not love anything about this album not even the single "our truth" and I've been a Lacuna Coil fan a long time and I'm not impresed at all. I wish they would of stuck to the sound like Heavens a Lie And An Angels Punishment. They need to have some kind of Chamber pop or a gothic backing track to make any song sound good. I'm sorry but go on the internet and listen to some samples of this album and then go listen to Comolies. There's such a big difference it's not even funny.
