Getting away with it
on 20 February 2010
I thought the first album was fantastic but short so when I saw the track count on this, I was hoping my issue had been addressed. Not quite...
Memento Mori, really is an album of two halves. The first is fantastic, carrying on where they'd left off with the first album. The second half is a bunch of tracks that are there to make up the numbers with a completely different sound. They don't fit in with eachother or the rest of the album.
It's a shame because the first 8 tracks or so, showed some great promise and it's worth buying for owners of the first album. If we want we can mix the two together to make a decent length epic album. I can't see that MM will bring many new Flyleaf fans however.
