Reviews:

Oooh, opting for the second album to get all self-titled on our asses, huh? Not even Coldplay have pulled that one yet, and you better believe this is Denver’s version of Coldplay. 2005’s How to Save a Life established the Fray as a soulful lite-rock force, and you can expect much of the same on their sophomore effort. The challenge, of course, being to write something as mournful and memorable as "Over My Head (Cable Car)." We think they’ve succeeded with the dramatic piano tinkling of "You Found Me," in which frontman Isaac Slade asks, "Where were you before everything was falling apart?" before eerily confessing, "You found me lying on the floor." Naturally, we approve of the morbidity. Added incentive: The first 300,000 copies of this record will include a documentary called Fair Fight, taken from the name of an exclusive digital bonus track.
