Heavy music and pained lyrics go together like cake and ice cream, and Belton, Texas quintet, Flyleaf, aren't about to break with tradition. But while many loud rockers reopen old wounds by singing about their broken homes and broken hearts, Flyleaf confront past traumas to heal old scars and prove in the process that hope shines brighter than despair.
Flyleaf's self-titled debut album echoes with songs about abuse, neglect, addiction and dysfunction, and messages about overcoming adversity. And the band's wide array of brooding beats, atmospheric textures and lunging riffs compliment Mosley's emotionally revealing lyrics, which range from breathy and beautiful to scathing and aggressive.

In the small realm of chick scream-o there is one band that stands above the rest... Flyleaf. In this album it's easy to tell why they have gotten so much attention. Blaring guitars and deep lyrics are prominent through out.
A Great Album| Posted March 03, 2008
This album by Flyleaf has been one of their best. My aunt owns the cd but I've been holding listening to them back. I like the songs "All Around Me", "There For You", and "Breathe Today". I didn't listen to Cassie because my brother was sitting in my lap but I think that's a great song by looking at the lyrics.
I like their style it's rock at times and not rock at times.

Dang, this girl can sing. Lace Mosley i mean. Hear high voice can really rock the stereo. But what i love is the intro of the songs. The guitar riffs are ....just great and really hardcore rock. The songs are hecka hardcore, well if you like that, and its really really good. Songs to love: I'm so sick, Sorrow, All Around Me, Fully Alive, Cassie. I really like Cassie cuz it tells of the story of the Columbine shooting. It really digs deep inside, in the song it says, 'say yes to pull the trigger'.
If you love hardcore and head-banging songs, then this is a definite album for you.

After listening to Flyleaf's debut album, I found myself wanting more. The lead singer, Lacey Mosley, has such a unique voice that can really rock out but can also be refreshing and soft in the song, 'So I Thought'. The songs that most impressed me were 'All Around Me' and 'Cassie.' Through all of the songs, you can really see a passion for God and a heart to reach out to those in need of Christ through songs like 'I'm So Sick' and 'Fully Alive. I'm looking forward to what Flyleaf has in store for us in the future.
