Product Description


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 = )

this band is sooo good and new. It's great when a band like this comes along and I hope they get a lot of exposure cause this album is so good and deserves it. Stand out songs are How To Save a Life (my favourite) and All at Once...whole album is amazing though

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth it! April 19 2006
Format:Audio CD
I randomly came across this group while searching the internet and I am definitely glad I did. These guys are amazing, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who enjoys groups that write their own songs and know how to play actual instruments.Many of the songs feature piano, which is nice and not too hard rock. My favorite song on the cd is "How to save a life"(which is the title track for the cd), but really all the songs are good. Go out and buy this album!
