5.0 out of 5 stars Tired of the Same Old-Same Old March 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I heard the single, "I'm So Sick," on the radio a few weeks ago. I bought the self-titled album. I went to their concert a couple of hours ago...And now I can't help but write a review.

Flyleaf is young, raw, still growing, and full of energy. On stage, they are passionate and fun to watch. In their songs, they are honest and searching, spiritual and hopeful. Are you tired of bands who wallow in despair or rage? Flyleaf goes to those places and then comes out on the other side. They show there is a way out.

Most of the songs on this album are worth repeat spins, and two or three are exceptional. Lacey's voice is able to draw you in with fragile emotion, then jar you to life with an unleashed scream. I love that in a female singer--and it's a rare trait. There is something here on this album for most rockers. I believe, in the future, we'll see more and even better things from Flyleaf.

Flyleaf is:

* Lacey Mosley- lead vocals

* Jared Hartmann- guitar

* Pat Seals- bass

* Sameer Bhattacharya- guitar

* James Culpepper- drums

Mosley, the 24 year old lead singer who fronts the band, has a voice that sounds sweet and breathy one moment, yet will jar your soul out of complacency with a growl and scream that strikes like a viper without warning. This five member band comes from Temple, TX with a ferocity that says "HEY! Here we are!"

Hardcore fans will devour this standout debut from Flyleaf who is just starting their inaugural headline tour with Staind in the UK. To support their debut album they are touring with Cold, Staind, POD and Taproot after having earned new fans playing in front of Saliva, Breaking Benjamin, 3 Doors Down, and Trust Company audiences during the Spring 2005 tour supporting Flyleaf EP release.

Rip-roaring guitar, brooding beats, and emotionally-driven lyrical delivery from Mosley combine to create the distinct Flyleaf sound of "beautiful aggression". It is a sound that is hard to describe because it can change in an instant. In some ways this captures a specific aspect of humanity in that our thoughts can be simple, yet we complicate them by mulling them around in our finite brains, which creates chaos that becomes

confusion; a jumbled pile of hurt, brokenness, healing, setback, anger, redemption, faith, security, sadness, and hope. Like a silver orb in a pinball machine, our thoughts bounce all around, agitated and unsettled, ceasing only now and then for rest.

The first single off the album "I'm So Sick" is garnering much attention and winning instant Flyleaf fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cd of 2008 March 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am going to echo everyone who says that this cd hasn't left their player. Being someone that changes her cd every few songs it is rare for me to keep one cd replaying over and over. I love the combination of Lacey's sweet childlike voice mixed in with some well crafted hard rock notes. I had been going through some down times in my life and this cd is just what I need. The lyrics and music really relate to my issues and help to find serenity in my faith. I recommend this everyone. A+

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Debut With Plenty Of Room For Growth January 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
My introduction to Flyleaf was actually unintentional. I was checking out at a local music store and the guy behind the counter kept insisting that I pick up the Flyleaf EP that was out at the time. I had no idea who they were, or what they sounded like, but to shut him up, I put the few bucks down and in exchange discovered a damn fine new band! As I heard the first song "I'm So Sick" (which, like all the songs on the EP, re-appears here) I was hooked. The vocals of Lacey Mosley were not only hard-hitting, but also intriguing and sweet at the same time. There sure aren't a lot of good female fronted hard-rock acts out there, but Flyleaf are definitely one of them!

Now, over half the material on their self-titled full-length debut is recycled material from the debut, as reproduced by Howard Benson (Cold, Hoobastank) so I have to admit, it wasn't as exciting listening to this as it was the EP. And another thing I must admit, is that the EP was actually better! Due to the lower production values, the songs had more charm and just hit a lot harder. Here, a lot of the music is overproduced and just doesn't have that same spark. But, if you've never heard anything to compare this album to, I'm sure you wouldn't think the same. The great thing about Flyleaf is that they can't be categorized. You can't say they sound like "X" band, because, really, they don't. It's a bit nu-metal, it's a bit alternative and Lacey's vocals are often angry, but never distorted or processed. The girl has some powerful pipes and definitely outshines some other male frontmen in the genre. It's hard to imagine how Flyleaf would sound like with some dude front and center...

There isn't much variety on the album, but that can be forgiven, because this is just a debut, and a damn fine one at that.

5.0 out of 5 stars I WILL ALWAYS SAY YES! October 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Flyleaf is an amazing band out of Texas that everyone needs to give a chance. I came across the band about a year ago on a message board.

This is their First album produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, POD...). If you liked the EP versions of the songs on this album you will have to get used to the changes. But trust me they are super.

While the bands older eps have a more raw/live feeling. I think they are trying to break out onto radio (with this record) and become something huge.

If you are still dying for some raw Flyleaf their live shows haven't changed at all and will be off the hook!

While Flyleaf isn't labled a Christian band their faith rides all over their music. If you are a Christian (like me) some of the songs on this record will get to you. I swear I could listen to the album and just cry at times. If you pick up this album you will be so blessed by the bands music.

I really can't describe how much I love this band and want you to give it a listen. I am still in shock after hearing it. Just WOW!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much whining about jeebus and not enough rock.
Drop the superstition and myth and get to the rock. I don't care about your faith. You should put a warning on the label that its a diluted album.
