The Fray are occasionally a painfully earnest bunch. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. What Helios does prove quite admirably is that they still have a knack for turning that quality into uplifting not-quite-Coldplay pop rock. This quality is sharpened throughout with just a bit of edge to keep things from descending into schmaltz.
