There are so many amazing bands out there that I’m shocked that the most popular artists are the ones who’ve came out of American Idol. This band is great. Lacey Mosley’s voice is amazing, and the guitar is the kind’ve guitar that makes the music great without taking up all the sound. It adds to the music, and makes it sounds good, while not “standing out”. I’m not a music critic but that kind’ve playing reminds me of the grunge days when the guitars, bass and drums all kind’ve blended together and all the instruments sounded like one. You can definitely also see the 90’s grunge influence in this band, as apparently those bands had an influence on the lead singer. All the tracks on this album are great, and you can’t get a better deal with what it’s priced at when it also includes a DVD! And then it has the bonus acoustic tracks. This album is a must have.

Even though I’m an Agnostic, Flyleaf has become one of my favorite bands. They rock hard-core like nobody’s business, and while they fully express their belief in God, they don’t try to shove it down your throat. I bet even Athiests would enjoy these guys!
The re-release of Flyleaf’s debut album excited me, but after seeing the videos leading up to the re-release and reading about some of the special features on this new Special Edition I was really ready to go pick it up right then! The album has the recordings of their first powerful release as well as acoustic renditions of some of their most popular songs, including “Red Sam”, “Cassie”, and “I’m So Sick”. The addition of these tracks really brings out the musical skill of the musicians as well as highlighting the beautiful voice of the lead singer. The DVD holds videos of the acoustic recording sessions as well as their full music video collection that brings a dimension to their artistry that those of us not able to make it to the shows tend to miss. Definelty worth picking up for the current fan or a curious music enthusiast!
After picking this CD up and actually viewing it, you actually get a view of what this band is about. Through the high quality DVD performances of Red Sam, Cassie and All Around Me, you can see the passion in what Flyleaf does. All of the extra features are awesome, but the performances stand out as the best perk of buying this album again.
For anyone looking for more of a look into what the band is about through performances, this is the way to go. It’s definitely worth the price.
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+
