''Through the Eyes'' is the major label debut album of alternative metal group Flaw. It was released in 2001 on Universal Records. The album debuted at #119 on the Billboard 200 chart.

With its brutal chorus, "Payback" would serve as the album's lead single in the summer of 2001 and was backed by a music video. The dark and eerie "Whole" followed as a second release, and interestingly enough, features vocalist Chris Volz in a vastly different look than the previous video. Both songs boast unique and complex opening bass lines. The opening track, "Only the Strong," was also featured in the ''Scorpion King'' soundtrack.

''Through the Eyes'' features a combination of clean vocals and screaming as well as highly distorted and melodic guitar work. Songs such as "Get Up Again" and "Reliance" focus primarily on aggressive melodies while "My Letter" and "Best I Am" could perhaps be considered power ballads. Themes of angst and rage are found throughout the album and are quite common in the nu metal genre; however, many of the songs on ''Through the Eyes'' also express hope and pride in one's self. Lyrics center around topics such as the suicide of Volz's mother. "Whole," in particular, focuses on this. - Wikipedia
