Five For Fighting: Slice {album review}

When it came out Five For Fighting's song 'Superman' played quite often. I thought it had great sound and loved the message. When their song '100 Years' came out in 2004 I loved it as well and even bought the CD, 'The Battle For Everything.' So when I was offered the opportunity by the One2One Network to review Five For Fighting's new CD, Slice, I jumped at the chance.


Debuting October 13th, Five For Fighting's new album, Slice, will be the their fifth studio album. They have sold over 2.5 million albums so far and Slice promises to only help that number grow.

The first single off the album, Chances, was released in July as a digital download. I enjoyed the song as soon as I heard it and could not wait to hear the remaining 10 tracks!

I sat here trying to think of a way to describe this album as a whole to you, but I think this press release says it best:


"If every album provides snapshots of where an artist’s mind at heart is at the moment, Slice, the latest offering from John Ondrasik (aka Five for Fighting), is a collection of digital jpegs and faded Polaroids. The album takes stories of friends, family and even American servicemen, and sets them to music shot through with the spirit of the great songs of his youth. It’s a diary, or a blog, in which Ondrasik speaks his mind about current issues, experiences and sentiments, while setting those thoughts to piano, bass and drums."
Jon's voice and tone in each song will lets you not only hear the words, but feel the emotions he puts into it. The lyrics all tell you stories and the music ties it all together perfectly. My favorite song on this album is track number 9, Story of Your Life. To hear samples of Slice's tracks visit Amazon's Slice page here. I enjoyed this CD and think if you are previous fan of Five For Fighting, you will really enjoy this album as well.
