Stevie's vocals bring me back to the days of Lacuna Coil’s “In a Reverie”; this was a CD that just felt amazing when you listened to it. It didn’t have the production quality that their new albums have but the passion and love behind the music was there to pull it all together. That is the similar feeling I got when listening to “Forsaken”. Not only that, but the music feels powerful, with its rough guitar riffs in songs like “End of Light”, “Addicted” and “Leave”.
