Flyleaf "Something Better" Song Review — 5 out of 5 stars
Wed, 19 Jun 2013 14:57:41
Flyleaf feels reborn on the new single "Something Better".
It's the first glimpse of the band with new vocalist Kristen May, but that's not the only reason. The song exudes a fresh spirit that's equally inspiring and irresistible. Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann trade sparkplug six-string fireworks back and forth with a newfound panache. Meanwhile, Pat Seals and James Culpepper prove to be one of the tightest rhythm sections in hard rock yet again.
May's voice sails over this energized yet tempered backdrop, revealing a band born again. The hook remains immediately unforgettable, and there's even a powerful guest spot from P.O.D. mainman Sonny Sandoval. Still, it feels like there's even bigger things to come from the group even beyond the new EP, Who We Are [July 9].
