5.0 out of 5 stars Flyleaf - A rare treat in melodic rock, 21 Mar 2013
This review is from: New Horizons (Audio CD)
What with all the emo and hard rock clones out there at the moment, such as inferior copies of Paramore and everyone else sounding like Fall out Boy. Flyleaf are doing something different. All their songs are full of melody and passion, you can hear they really care about what they are doing. Flyleaf are certainly not a 'play it today, forget about it tomorrow' type of band.

I first found out about Flyleaf while doing some research on YouTube with music videos involving paint! (sounds random, but I was at the time in a band that was working on a music video where we were going to cover ourselves in paint!) I found a video of Flyleaf where they got red paint over them, sadly I can't remember what the song was but I instantly brought their previous album 'Memento Mori', which I loved and still do. I love it when discoveries like that happen to me, I have brought my best albums that way. Now I am constantly playing this one.

Flyleaf have been tagged as a Christian Rock band. Don't let that put you off, I am an Atheist so it doesn't bother me. Unless you really deeply analise the lyrics you would'nt really know anyway.

I guess I should comment on the actual album before I finish this review! However, I'm not going to comment on the individual songs, as they are pretty much all brilliant. I'm struggling to decide if I like any less or more that Memento Mori'. It's very sad this is the last album for Lacey, she is one of the best female Rock vocalists I have ever come across. I haven't heard her replacement yet, but I hope the dynamics of their music doesn't change too much because of it. Every note Lacey sings here is full of emotion, it was the first thing that attracted me to Flyleaf, I hope it won't be the last Flyleaf album I buy, we will see what they come up with next.
