Been waiting for a review for this... and while I'm normally a grammar nazi I don't remember wincing at anything (I did kinda speed-read it tho and I don't feel like going through it again)

Anyway, I absolutely loved the first album and really wanted to like this one but I cannot get into it at all... I don't know if I'm not identifying with the lyrics or if the melodies aren't as good or if the production's too safe or what, but I get painfully bored every time I try to get through this album (streamed or borrowed). And I still think of How to Save A Life as probably one of my top 10 albums.

I was looking forward to purchasing this album but instead I finally got around to getting Viva La Vida, and what a contrast... even aside from all the clever things about that album, sometimes they'll just get into a good light-rock groove and I think, they could ride this progression instrumentally for five minutes and I would not be bored. There's absolutely nothing on the new Fray album that grabs me, neither clever-wise nor groove-wise.
