Product Description

Amazon.ca

On their full-length debut, Denver quartet the Fray don't exactly reinvent the wheel, but those looking for melodic, mid-tempo pop could do far worse. That said, the 12 songs on Top 40 hit "How to Save a Life" are barely distinguishable from each other. If you like one, you'll probably like the rest (and you'll be in the company of thousands of other listeners.) If you don't like one, it's unlikely the others will change your mind. Formed in 2002 and signed by Epic in 2004, the band consists of Isaac Slade (vocals, piano), Joe King (guitar, vocals), Ben Wysocki (drums), and Dave Welsh (guitar). Since their formation, the Fray have elicited comparisons to British groups like Coldplay and Keane, and American ones like Counting Crows and the Wallflowers. They've also toured with Weezer and Ben Folds and had songs--like first single "Over My Head (Cable Car)"--featured on such popular programs as "Grey's Anatomy." Though they incorporate guitar, unlike Keane, Slade's expert piano playing is prominent on every track. To his credit, he can also hit the high notes just as gracefully as Coldplay's Chris Martin, but therein lies the rub: As with the band as a whole, Slade hasn't quite found his own voice yet. How to Save a Life is polished and professional, bland and inoffensive. It goes down easy, but evaporates into the ether just as quickly. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

This is a marvelous cd. The Fray have such a unique sound to them, and the singing is simply amazing. I absolutely love 'Trust me' and 'Look After You'. The lyrics touch your heart in such a personal way. Definetly a good purchase. One of my new favorites. <3 = )

4.0 out of 5 stars How To Save A Life Aug. 4 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a great start for the band, a solid debut album but it still feels like it is missing something. I rate that album overall 4 1/2 stars. Maybe with a few more releases they will improve.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air :oP March 19 2008
By Deanne
Format:Audio CD
The Fray's debut album could not be better! Every song is beautiful! This is another album with songs that I would not want to skip. The album is THAT good! If I had to pick out a few of my favorite songs (so hard to choose because they're all good!), they would be: "Vienna", "Trust Me", "Little House", "Heaven Forbid", and "All At Once."
