The New Folk Implosion is the final studio album by the American band The Folk Implosion. It was released in 2003 on iMusic.[3] The album was the group's first release without co-founder and writer John Davis.[7]

Critical reception[edit]

Exclaim! wrote that the album "features Barlow in fine voice and exploring the catchy guitar rock that's marked his career."[8] Now wrote that "the grittier, guitar-heavy sound stands in contrast to "Natural One"'s slick hiphop slinkiness and One Part Lullaby’s multi-layered marriage of indie rock and electronica."[9]
