Lacey's Life Screams Out To The Rest Of Us
Posted December 30, 2016
Lacey Sturm caused a riot when she left Flyleaf. She had so many fans waiting for more music from her, so when "Life Screams" came out, millions flocked to buy a copy. It was well worth the wait.
The album begins with the strong lead single Impossible. The lyrics celebrate the ability God has given us to live the impossible, to do things we never could've done if we were on our own. The line Every morning I see another miracle harkens back to Lacey's autobiographical book "The Reason". Songs like The Soldier and Feels Like Forever encourage us to trust, fight for and hope in God, even when it feels as though we will never conquer the darkness around us. The song Rot warns of a detrimental lifestyle that will only bring the person to ruin and hopelessness and it screams out for God's aid. Run To You and Faith are softer tracks that tell of tender love, with it's struggles and challenges along with it's joys. I'm Not Laughing calls out bullies in their act, with Lacey screaming repeatedly I'm not like you/ I'm not like you/ I'll never be like you. You're Not Alone deals with just that: the feeling of being alone in your life. It reminds many very strongly of Lacey's younger days of feeling abandoned and useless. The title track, Life Screams, urges listeners to become receptive of the miracles and wonders arounds us. The spoken word track, Vanity, is a prelude to Rot that uses amazing imagery and features artist Propaganda. The live cover of The Police's Roxanne is a very passionate rendition.
Overall, this album, both lyrically and musically, was a hit and has fans thanking the Lord for calling out to Lacey, which enabled her to call out to so many of us.
