iTunes Review

On its third album, The Fray journeys across physical and emotional landscapes as it fortifies its music with a bolder production approach. Producer Brendan O’Brien pushes The Fray toward a more muscular, aggressive sound while retaining the graceful piano interludes that defined the band’s earlier work. Lead singer Isaac Slade continues to project a heroic (if tormented) presence in defiantly idealistic numbers like “Heartbeat,” “Here We Are," and “The Fighter.” He takes on a seafarer's spirit in “The Wind” and delivers a compelling romantic vignette in “Rainy Zurich.” The band’s underlying Christian faith is expressed most clearly in the stately, hymn-like “Be Still.” At its best, The Fray has the power to disarm the most cynical listener with a heartfelt ballad—it does that here in “I Can Barely Say,” a falsetto-tinged confession of need draped with dramatic orchestration. Big in sound and ambitious in scope, Scars & Stories aims for a wide audience but doesn’t lose its humanity in the process.

Its fantastic

I absolutely love the fact that the Fray has stuck with their roots since they started. Its very great album and I am going to enjoy listening to it for years to come just like their previous album.


it's finally here! i've waited so long for this album to come out ever since they played a summer show in my hometown where they played at least half the album. I must say that this album is probably my favorite up to date as I have been listening to it non-stop on itunes. "heartbeat" has got to be one of my favorite fray songs of all time. such a beautiful song overall. "be still" is a great ballad with amazing lyrics as with the rest of the album. get it now! "like" if you agree.

Amazing album!

This album is fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

By pitching their music somewhere between the arena-friendly style of U2 and the mature pop/rock of bands like Maroon 5 and Counting Crows, the Fray rose to commercial prominence with their 2005 debut, How to Save a Life. The Denver-based band had formed three years prior, when former schoolmates Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) and Joe King (guitar, vocals) unexpectedly bumped into each other at a local music store. The pair began a series of two-man jam sessions and soon expanded their lineup with two...
