"For Love Not Lisa are without any doubt one of the most underrated bands of all time. This band deserved international stardom and success. Merge is my favourite FLNL album and slip slide melting is my favourite song of all time. If you like hard rock with passion and emotion then you must buy this album.
I REALLY LOVE THIS BAND."

"If you've heard their cut "Slip Slide Melting" on The Crow soundtrack and enjoyed that, you'll love this CD. Slip Slide Melting can be found here as well, but after a few listens, you'll find that it is not one of the cornor stones of this album. With songs like Lucifer for Now and Darring to Pick up... FLNL captures your attention with honest and open lyrics and some very witty guitar work. Some tracks even delve into a more modren poetry feel. The CD has a great mix of rythems to it and is an audio adventure. Merge is a refreshing CD. FLNL has acomplished a great feat in this album. It is one of the most creative albums I own."

""Wow..." was the one word I had to explain this album.Unlike other Christian Bands, For Love Not Lisa shows that the members have a mind outside of "God will save us!"The lyrics deal with death and souls. I only realized that FLNL was a Christian band after learning that the band that the guitarist and singer made later was on Tooth and Nail Records, a major Christian label. (MxPx and Slick Shoes are also on this label.)The music itself is incredible. Overdubbed guitars and pedals abound in this, making the sound very formless. This shows that FLNL couldplay anything, from a trippy piano thing (Just a Phase) to a near thrash (Slip Slide Melting). The music does lean to the softer side, though, and it sometimes gets VERY muddled. The vocalist does everything: sing, hum, whine, shout, death-metal belch, and whisper. What he does is not always congruent with the music or the meaning of the song though.Overall, the band is a decent band and is very good on the Christian rock scales. The music as strong, the lyrics are good enough to be for any band, and the vocalist is versatile. And I'm not even a Christian."
