Review

Through the Years: The Best of the Fray is the first collection from The Fray. Thinks that the title is quite appropriate as it contains the biggest hits in the band, which also can be considered as the best they have written. Sure, if I had chosen the songs, I had for included tracks like "Syndicate" and "The Wind", but overall we get the right tracks from a purely commercial perspective.

Collections are usually a good introduction to new bands and if you don’t have anything with The Fray, this is a good start. However, you should actually check out all the albums with the band, with the exception of Helios from 2014 when they like many other bands, adopted a more pop-orientated sound.

There is also some candy for us who have the previous records as we get three brand new songs. Both "Singing Low" and "Changing Tides" is of high The Fray class with their atmospheric and magnificent melodies. In "Corners" where the band follows the more "modern" trend of electronic pop influences is clearly weaker, but still an ok song.

Overall, a nice collection for both new and old fans, where we get some of the best pop/rock songs written from 2005-2010!
