By any measure, I’m definitely not a huge listener nor fan of the “hard rock” genre. And while Flyleaf certainly fits into this category, their self-titled debut, which released nearly four long years ago, is possibly my favorite Christian record of all time. Something about the entire disc just completely draws me in. “I’m So Sick” was the first cut I heard off the album, and while it isn’t one of the CD’s finer tracks, it was enough to catch my attention, and that attention has remained to this day. Maybe it’s the lyrics. Each and every song contained here pushes through meanings deeper than any band that I’ve heard, and something about each track seems to make a connection. And where do I even begin talking about lead singer Lacey Mosley’s voice? It’s entirely unique, and it fits in perfectly with every song, from the hard rock “Fully Alive” to the more timid “There for You.” With their new record, Memento Mori (which I absolutely can not wait to hear!), releasing in August, there couldn’t be a more perfect time to delve into Flyleaf’s debut to see what you’ve been missing. You won’t be let down. – Logan Leasure
