I really liked the piano and guitar riffs in the song, the little interlude near the end builds up to the final chorus and ends the song leaving you breathless with a sense of amazement and wonder. Great song, very good choice of a single to be played on the radio, this song got me into The Fray. The guitar in the song just plays a couple of riffs here and there and strums a chord on the chorus, but still better than nothing.
Is that strings I hear in the back? It really adds to the ambiance and the marimbas I think are simple additions that make this song stick in your head for days. I believe the song is about Isaac trying to help a crack-addict teen according to their website. Then switches to the basic piano and guitar playing thing they do, however it still seems fresh.
I really like the half time feel they give in the chorus; it sticks out the most in my mind. The small guitar parts during the verses may seem insignificant, but they really do add a lot, imagine it without them and you would have the worst sounding song on the CD although all the tracks would be horrible without them.
Rating: 3. Basic drumming, nothing spectacular like the other songs, I wish Ben would try to change it up once and a while, although the ending really does sound much better than the beginning of the song. The outro is where the bass and drums really shine; this is their moment to shine with them almost rocking out till the quiet finish with the piano and guitar ending a near perfect song.
