Album Review

The Fray were among the first of the flood of bands that combined the influence of British neo-stadium acts like Coldplay and Keane, the retro-AOR bands of the mid-'90s — chief among them Counting Crows and the Wallflowers — and American emo-pop bands like Something Corporate and Jimmy Eat World.

A couple of songs, like "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and "Dead Wrong," might even sound good in the background of a WB teen drama.
