Album Review

Texas-based Christian rock/emo-metal quintet Flyleaf’s sophomore release jettisons the raw, punk-infused angst of its platinum-selling debut, replacing it with a thick, punchy theatricality that is as progressive as it is radio-ready. Fueled by the electrifying voice of Lacey Mosley, who can build a city with a single soaring note and then tear it down with a lone caterwaul, Memento Mori (musically, at least) owes more to the tech-heavy, similarly faith-based King's X than it does the moody atmospherics of Evanescence, but there’s enough angst and obsession here to draw fans of the latter. At 14 songs, most of which bust out the gate with guns blazing, it can be hard to differentiate, especially when the group sticks to the formula of heavy riff/verse/heavy riff/chorus, but between the moody single "Again" and the alternately laid-back and elegiac closer "Arise," the five members of Flyleaf have come awfully close to finding and defining their voice.

Customer Reviews

Immense return.

Flyleaf captivated me with their first album; this one totally stunned me. The whole band has developed in a way I didn't think they could. Lacey especially - her vocals have really picked up (they were pretty amazing anyway)- you can clearly hear a new range in her voice.

I'd choose some favourite tracks, but there isn't one that I don't think is the best right now. Close your eyes and really soak it in when you listen to it for the first time - indeed, my only regret is that I cannot listen to it for a first time again.

Incidentally, iTunes really needs to get the Expanded Edition on here, that comes with 4 extra tracks - equally inspirational.

Worth every penny!

I`m not normally a fan of Flyleaf, but this album is immense! There are no weak songs on it, and the lead singers voice is phenominal in every song

The Belton, Texas-based heavy rock quintet Flyleaf formed in 2000 when frontwoman Lacey Mosley played a string of the dark, hard-edged songs she consistently wrote as a brooding teen for drummer James Culpepper. After a brief period of playing together, they recruited guitarists Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann, members of a local outfit that had recently called it quits. In 2002, bassist Pat Seals joined, and the band, initially known as Passerby, was born. The road to Flyleaf's 2005 self-titled...
