I was really surprised when the singer tried to rap in a few songs (kill pop, everyday) but theyre not bad. i do hear a kurt cobain comparison and they do a good job on trying to sound like nirvana, but they definately will never be nirvana. i have no idea if they will be bigger in the future because right now there really not that famous. i dont hear them on the radio alot so maybe its just the stations i listen to. they r an average band to see live, i saw them with shinedown and on saturday i will be seeing them with chevelle. maybe this preformance will be better (i can only hope). but anyway i recommend this to anyone who likes grunge or alternative rock like 3 doors down and nickelback... - Amazon

ok so ive seen some mixed reviews on this cd, so i decided to come and set the record straight. first off, there is a TREMENDOUS nirvana like sound here. seeing as how nirvana is what got me into music, the moment i first heard "let me out" on the radio i thought perhaps it could be a song by nirvana i never heard. i found out days later that it was a band called "future leaders of the world". at first i was sketchy about buying this cd, cuz of the whole "well what if the only song ive heard is the only good song on the cd", and "what if this is some ripping off of nirvana stuff". its not! every song on this cd rocks out loud and hard. for anyone out there whos looking for the next nirvana, for any true nirvana fan whom is looking for something to satisfy their nirvana cravings other than listening to thier cds, go out and buy this cd immediately. at first listen, you might think kurt faked his death and is singing on this cd, im not kidding, its crazy, but this cd rules and you should own it. every song is good. you wont have to skip any songs. these guys have alot of talent.. look for them to just BLOW the hell up, cuz its gonna happen soon once more people hear this record. what are you waiting for??? GO BUY THIS CD RIGHT NOW, DONT HESISTATE AND MISS OUT! - Amazon.com

Fresh, political and addictive. These are the words that first come to mind when listening to The future leaders of the world disk LVL IV. (Pronounced level 4) Produced by GGGarth (Rage, Chevelle and Mudvayne) the disk has savage teeth and they dig in fast & furious from the start.


I have to confess that I had not heard one lick from this group before I held their disk in my hands. I do have to say that I'm glad that I was accidentally subjected to their sonic campaign. From the first track I quickly became a partisan listener and by the third song I was absolutely fervid. I will definitely be telling others to check this one out because LVL IV kicks ass.

You see, this disk is not really just music — it is a campaign. Similar to the message of other bands like Rage Against the Machine and System of a Down, this is a campaign to transform and inform — an attack on your senses and your intellect. The campaign message is right up my alley too because it is all about the decline of western civilization and (like myself) ring leader Phil Tayler is looking for someone to blame.

On the closing track "Your Government Loves You", Tayler screams:

"Though I saw a flag with stars and stripes
That stood for equal rights
Civil liberties pursuit of happiness in life
Now I know we're all just hoes spokes on a wheel of fortune
Lost tones in a song eternal souls scorching"

Tayler, who sounds a bit like Wesley Reid Scantlin from Puddle of Mudd at times sends a message that is very clear, "WE ARE PISSED" and the emotions will be dripping from your speakers. If you are not a fan of Puddle of Mudd don't let that stop you from checking this one out. Tayler is not just another Puddle/Nirvana clone, he sounds like he ate Scantlin and Cobain for breakfast and the guys are drowning in the acid of his stomach. The emotion and pain are real and you feel it in every pulse pounding beat of his fire-eating poetic delivery.

BC Music Premium
Advertise here nowThe song "Let me out" is an instant favorite because of this painfully, emotive delivery. Tayler slashes out and sums up their album as he screeches:

"Let me out, let me out I’m singing I’m a liar and a cheat in prison, Accused of telling the truth"

Now that the group has finally made it to major label status Tayler finally has his chance to share his opinions and he is out to convert. His message is clear that he wants to tell the world his opinion — and he believes — he KNOWS he's right.

Another element this band has right is the ability to simply kick out the jams even if you are not into politics and saving the world. Crank it baby, just crank it and you will be left begging for more.

The FLOTW attacks cover everything from our government leadership (Your government loves you) to the sad state of the music industry (Kill pop) and the campaign is furious. Taylor leads his bandmates to the fight and he is guaranteed to win because this particular attack ad simply rocks.

Winning tracks on this disc are Unite, Spotlight, Let Me Out, Kill Pop and For Sale.

Bio

FUTURE LEADERS OF THE WORLD released its first album, LVL IV (pronounced “Level Four”) on Epic Records. The album sold more than 200,000 copies. The first single, “Let Me Out” reached No. 3 on the Active Rock Chart, No. 6 on the Billboard Chart, and stayed in the top 10 for ten weeks. Characterized by high-energy grunge metal, Future Leaders of the World quickly became a favorite on Headbanger’s Ball and MTV.com. The band also played a rigorous schedule of tours and festivals including shows with Shine Down, the 2005 Snocore Tour with Crossfade and Chevelle, and the 2005 Jägermeister tour with Alterbridge.
They are now touring while promoting the new upcoming album "REVEAL", that is due out late this year.
