Only Human is FLEDfives most mature work to date, darker and more ferocious than their earlier releases, 2000’s “Highest Hill” and 2002’s “Part of Me”. However, vocalist/guitarist Brian Grooms’ melodies are full of hooks, and his lyrics are more meaningful and thought provoking. From the crushing guitar of “Our Blood” to the ballady “Where Are You Now,” this band proves it has the guts to play it fast and heavy, lay back and let the melody steer the song, or do anything in between. Fans of Nickleback, Sevendust, Staind and Creed will love this CD.
