Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
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.

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.

    Love It!

    I love Flyleaf! I loved their first album...listened to it alot, and still do frequently. It seemed like it took a while for them to release their 2nd full length album, though they did release an EP a couple of years earlier, which can hardly be found now it seems except for online & whatnot. I did get it on iTunes. It was maybe 4 songs, but it was pretty good. Then, as of late last year, they finally released this, and I was pretty stoked. I didn't actually get the CD right off, but I did download it on iTunes, so I at least had it. I finally just recently bought ths CD, so I could play it elsewhere, other than just on the computer and my iPod. I'm a bit of a collector too...I usually collect up the discs of all my favorite CDs, so this one had been on my list. I honestly can't say which of their 2 full length albums I like better, because they're both so good. If you're into rock/alternative music and haven't really much heard Flyleaf, (though I couldn't see how, because they play em on most every major rock station), I highly recommend you check them out! You won't be sorry!
