Rating: 3 Stars
Even with monstrous mainstream fame, The Fray never shies away from matters of faith (“How To Save A Life,” “You Found Me”), and there’s once again plenty of uplifting and contemplative lyrics throughout this fourth long-player. Though the group’s signature piano pop surfaces on occasion, there seems to be a greater gravitation toward gang-styled choruses and massive electronic beats, which sometimes succeed but periodically appear too derivative of today’s top 40.
