Now many years later, they give us this abortion that they call Shallow Life. I'm not going to get into a song-by-song breakdown of this album for two reasons: 1. It's been months since I've listened to it and 2. I'm not writing for Rolling Stone, although I am actually writing about music, unlike 3/4 of their articles. Anyhow, I grabbed this album shortly after it came out, and listened to it with two other (now former) Lacuna Coil fans. Our reaction? A unanimous "what the fuck is this crap?" That's what our reaction was. This album is quite possibly the most boring album I have ever listened to in my entire life, and I have listened to a hell of a lot of music in my 37 years. I didn't like
Karmacode that much either, but damn... that album is a masterpiece compared to this piece of trash.

In the flood, or daresay deluge of nowadays gothic crap, enter Tears of Magdalena. Granted, they did not bring anything new nor lots of originality here, but ('')originality('') is far too often an undesired feature in gothic metal. The best gothic metal is mostly the one molded according to standards. What I (and connoisseurs) deem standard includes: operatic female vocals, male death or black metal vocals, classical orchestral parts and a GOTHIC atmosphere. It is well-known what happens when gothic metal diverges into something else with the aforementioned originality. For those who don't know, you get an abomination similar to ''Musique'', or some atrocious mainstream-appealing cacophony imitating Lacuna Coil (or Evanescence). With that clear, Tears of Magdalena feature all the key elements necessary to a good gothic metal album. They have female operatic female vocals executed (by Magdalena Lee)…
