Spellbound
Burning here, in the room Feeling that the walls are moving closer Silent scene the dark takes me Leads me to the ending of another day I'm... See the rest of the song lyrics

    Shallow Life finds them adding substance, specifically Evanescence-esque mass-appeal anthems tailor-made for radio. [Jun 2009, p.119]
  2. At the end of the day, this album might not be what the change-resistant fans wanted to hear but it was necessary and more importantly, they pull it off quite well.

    It's a shame that in those rare moments Lacuna Coil do stick out their necks, the results are the uninspired, tepid radio rock of Shalow Life's 'Unchained' and 'The Pain.' [Jun 2009, p.104]
  4. Those incessant choruses this band is so good at continue to dominate, and yet again, it’s what ultimately compels us to think of the album as decent instead of merely middling.
