An amazing and seemingly unknown album.,
This review is from: How to Save a Life (Audio CD)
I might be wrong, but it doesn't seem to me that nearly enough people have heard of The Fray. This first album consists of strong melodic harmonies consisting of strong guitar and piano talent.
The vocals have a faltless, husky quality. The lyrics are great and the album is consistent in its quality, there doesn't appear to be one filler track on this album. Their tunes, which are all unique, tend to be around the 4 minute mark which is also something I really like about this album. It feels like a lot of hard work went into it.
The tracks are upbeat, even when the tone of the tune might be a sad one. It means this CD is something you can put on in the background of a social situation, something you could study to, relax to or even listen to while you're on the move.
It's definately worth having a listen to this album. You'll find the tunes are incredibly addictive. I can't praise this album enough, it feels like it's been ages since I found an album I've loved start to finish. Well done guys!!!
