Tired of the Same Old-Same Old
on March 13, 2006
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.
