The Fray: The Fray

Epic Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
On The Fray's debut How To Save A Life [2005] their mix of rock and pop hit a cord that spawned some sweet radio friendly singles and an album that was decent. On the groups self-titled sophomore record they hit the proverbial slump. It is not the songs are bad but that they all have the same slow piano driven style that ultimately makes you hit next. I am sure this record will still be a commercial success because the first single is somewhat catchy but as an album I believe the band is more talented then comes across here.

Key Track: "You Found Me"

Band With Similar Fire: Augustana
