This review is from: The Battle For Everything (Audio CD)
Five For Fighting have achieved what might have seemed impossible and produced an album, which excels their beautiful 2000 offering, America Town.
John Ondrasik has a spectacular voice with an amazing range and is accompanied by incredibly beautiful guitar and piano melodies. His lyrics are captivating; genuinely touching and flow like poetry.
There are a diverse selection of tracks to hear- from the fantastic, almost eerie, tale told in The Devil in the Wishing Well, the funky, upbeat Angels and Girlfriends and the kooky fantasy of a song- Disneyland. To the sublime, incredibly haunting melody of 100 Years (my favourite track). Which is guaranteed to melt your heart and bring out goose bumps every time you listen. I also have a soft spot for Dying, a song that captures the exact feelings of a love lost.
This is without doubt the best + most unique album I have bought this year and I love it more each time I listen. Highly recommended - a must have!
