New Music Tuesday

The Fray’s follow-up to 2005’s two-time platinum “How To Save A Life” is released today.  I would argue that this album, the band’s second LP, shows little-to-no evolution or departure from the Fray’s formula for “How To Save A Life,” except that this disc seems a bit softer, with the drums and backing guitars taking a quieter backseat to the piano.  This isn’t necessarily a criticism, since I think they have sucecssfully avoided any sophomore slump but I’m not sure the album is going to set the music scene on fire.  Or even warm it.

Here’s the album’s first single and first track, respectively:

The Fray – You Found Me

The Fray – Syndicate

Buy the album: iTunes (Standard Edition); iTunes (Deluxe Edition); Amazon (Standard Edition).
