      Something to listen to when you want to feel contemplative.

      If you have never heard The Fray, they are a brilliant blend of bands like U2, Better Than Ezra and Counting Crows. They Fray had their brilliant debut album out in 2005, How to Save a Life. They are a Denver-based band of former schoolmates Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) and Joe King (guitar, vocals). As the story goes, they bumped into each other at a local music store. The pair soon expanded with two of Slade's former bandmates, drummer Ben Wysockiand guitarist David Welsh. Slade's younger brother.

      Fans of the brilliant chart topping single and album 'How To Save A Life' (used for Grays Anatomy) will instantly recognise that distinctive melancholy sound from the first song on this album 'Syndicate' and the album progresses into that melodic, deep haunting music that defined the first album. More songs contain the brilliant piano accompanyments that set this band a little apart from bands in this genre. And even if you are a little tired of the 'more of the same' you wont be able to deny the gentle moving reflective quality of the music and you will probably be hooked as you were before.

      The song 'Where the story ends' is my favourite and gives me a similar breathless, turbulent, tragic-romantic feeling that 'How to save a life gave me'.

      Definitely worth a listen and I can genuined recommend this album.
