This review is from: New Horizons (Audio CD)
This is Lacey's last album with Flyleaf. I was disappointed that it clocks in at only 36:30. I opened the CD to read the liner notes/lyrics before I popped it in. Instead I got a mini-poster and a list of folks associated with the album. Sigh. So if you are debating on getting the actual CD or downloading it, you're not missing out by saving a few bucks and simply downloading it. Overall the album is solid. I liked it better the second time around, so you may need to listen to it a few times to get into all the songs. There are a few that need to grow on me still. That said, there are some here that will blow you away the very first time! So there you have it. If you're already a Flyleaf fan, you'll like this, if you're new to them and you like the harder stuff go with their first disc, but this one will give you a taste of that one, most notably Call You Out.
Fire Fire: A nice way to kick off the disc. The song is short but has an edge to it.
New Horizons: The first single is more mainstream oriented, but listening to it in the context of the album it seems to fit in well.
Call You Out: Simply the best song on the album! You might think this was on their first (and IMO their best album). It has that hard Flyleaf edge and is Lacey and the band at their best!
Cage On the Ground: Things slow down a bit here. I'm biased, I like Flyleaf better when they're full on straight-ahead. It's certainly not a throw away though.
Great Love: I like the words. The song gets better as it progresses. Listen to it all the way through. It may be one of those songs that has to grow on you.
Bury Your Heart: Wow! Oustanding! I could listen to this song over and over.
Freedom: Another winner! Play it loud!
Saving Grace: My least favorite song on the album. It just doesn't do it for me.
Stand: I like this song, but again, I wish the lyrics were included.
Green Heart: Oh yeah! I guess my worries about Flyleaf losing their edge were unfounded. This smokes!
Broken Wings: A fine closer to the album. It slows things down a bit after the assault of Green Heart.

Where did you hear this is Lacey's last album? That's a real bummer. This is one of the best bands with a female singer.

Yeah, I wasn't happy either. It was announced on their Facebook page and is also on their official website. They already have a new singer in the fold to tour for this album.
