The Fray Reached #1 on US Album Chart with Second Album

The+Fray

 The Fray is an American rock band that became famous with the songs How to Save a Life and Over My Head (Cable Car). On February 21, 2009 the band was at #1 on the US Album Chart with their self-titled second album according to thisdayinmusic.com.  Some of the hit songs from the album included Never Say Never, Enough for Now, and You Found Me.

Never Say Never is a direct love song between two people who are “pulling apart and coming together again and again according to songfacts.com. It also mentions that in a review for Billboard magazine, Michael Menachem commented that “the standout moment is the climactic key change, conveying intense emotion during the bridge where the melody shifts from major to a higher minor, in a similar spirit to what Boyz II Men achieved on ‘It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.'” This song is included on the soundtrack for the 2009 film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

The song Enough for Now is about how lead singer Isaac Slade handled the death of his grandfather states songfacts.com:

“I felt lost, all these emotions and those songs came out. But then, 12 months ago, I was talking to a friend of mine who gave me some perspective on it and some books to read. I realized I was seeing only the pure realism side of it all and there is good in life still, even though people die or have miscarriages, whatever. And I began to have hope again.”

Joe King and Isaac Slade write most of the songs for the group but sometimes the other members of the band help with songs according to songfacts.com:

“That’s how ‘You Found Me’ happened, actually. We were sitting around as songwriters, and Ben came in said, ‘I like that old piece about being lost or insecure or something. We should check that out.’ And I didn’t think it would work ’cause it felt non-engaging and vulnerable, and I wanted a big, epic chorus. But it ended up being perfect for it, this very inclusive concept of ‘we’re all in this together.'”

The Fray is a rock band with catchy lyrics making whoever listens to their music want to sing along. This a band that will be around for a long time. Below is the music video Never Say Never.
