Memento Mori [Expanded Edition]

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 their 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 of the gate with guns blazing, it ...

Texas-based Christian rock/emo-metal quintet Flyleaf's sophomore release jettisons the raw, punk-infused angst of their 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 of 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. [An expanded edition was released with an extra disc featuring the bonus tracks "Break Your Knees," "Enemy," "Have We Lost," and "Who Am I."]

    Great CD

    This is one of the better CDs available. Excellent vocals and great guitars. One of the few CDs to listen through without needing to skip over songs.

    Heck Yes!

    Granted, this CD has not yet released as I am writing this, but I already know that it's going to be great! This one of my favorite groups, and I have basically everything they have ever done, spare for a couple of select live singles and a song they made for the Nightmare Before Christmas Revisted album, but I am working on trying to remedy that. I have their 1st album, some live songs, a 4 song EP they released a year or two ago, and even a Christmas song they released. I love every single song I have and have ever heard by these guys, and I have heard about 3 songs from this new album that are awesome, and that's good enough for me! I have the deluxe version of the album, this particular one I am reviewing, on pre-order on iTunes. It comes with bonus tracks and material, and it is definitely the version to get if you are a Flyleaf fan like I am. It has been a few years since the band has released a new full length album, so it's definitely about time. I can hardly wait! Peep it out folks!
