Lacuna Coil

Saw them live about ten years back - they were spectacular back then! Haven't seen them play over here in a while. Were they good on the bill last year (or the year before, can't remember which but I wasn't there!).

They still put on good shows, but their last good album was Karmacode and everything after was dire (I don't want to hear a fourth disappointment in a row so not listened to Delirium), so live they have a really good performance, but despite that you can't polish a turd.

It's hard to express just how much I disagree with this. That was the first of the crap albums for me, and I was hugely disappointed that they chose to play it in its entirety the last time I saw them.

You found "Dark adrenaline" disappointing? For me it was a huge return to form.

(I think we can safely agree that "Shallow life" was terrible, though)
