The Fray’s new album The Fray is just as lackluster as its title. The band became famous following the playing of their hit song “How to Save a Life” on an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, and their debut CD, How to Save a Life, included other hit songs such as “All at Once” and “Over my Head.” While I enjoyed that album, the new CD left me disappointed and unimpressed. Here, The Fray has a Coldplay-esque sound, but most of the songs sound identical to one another and the lyrics are pretty dull. The album isn’t overly exciting, although some of the songs are catchy and easy to listen to. The opening track, “Syndicate,” features nice use of the guitar and piano and a good chorus.
