Visual Karma (Body, Mind And Soul) Featured review by: UG Team, on january 08, 2009

Sound: Regarding the band's 2007 live performances at European mega fests like Germany's Wacken and Japan's Loudpark, Lacuna Coil:Visual Karma (Body, Mind and Soul) certainly places the viewer however many thousand miles and oceans away he or she may have been from these specific events. It's as though he or she were at these very shows, taking in the majestic, gothically romantic performance. The audio is not note perfect, but then again, what live concert ever is? The songs still sound like the Lacuna Coil we've come to know and love. // 9

Overall Impression: Most fan experiences with Lacuna Coil probably happen from a distance. Lacuna Coil: Visual Karma (Body, Mind and Soul) reels the Coil'ers in and allows the fan to ride sidecar and to feel as though they are getting to know the band members on a personal basis. The mystique is lifted and the fan enters the world of one of Italy's finest rock bands. There's nothing super serious or shocking revealed in the commentary, but it's still fun to have one on ones with Scabbia and her bandmates. Lacuna Coil: Visual Karma (Body, Mind and Soul) has lots of layers and is perfect for one of those Sunday afternoons at home when you want to curl up with a beer or a glass of wine and indulge in one of your favorite bands without ever having to leave the confines of your house. // 8
