Flyleaf's last album with original singer Lacey Sturm, New Horizons hits on all the right spots: It's heavy where it needs to be and mall-bustingly melodic at the chorus. Sturm's pronunciation pushes the whole machine into that rarely achieved balance between unapologetic commercialism and perfectly executed pop music. Opener "Fire Fire" and "Call You Out" cannot be played loud enough.
