Over the last year, FFF frontman John Ondrasik has been busy working on music for films. He wrote, produced and performed "The Best," the main title song for the upcoming animated baseball-comedy feature Everyone?s Hero (he also teamed up with country greats Brooks & Dunn to co-write "Keep On Swinging" for the same film). For the movie August Rush, John produced and wrote "Break," which is performed on screen by the actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. Although primarily known for performing his own compositions, John also recorded a compelling new version of the classic Jimmy Webb composition, "All I Know" (a chart-topping pop hit song for Art Garfunkel in 1973), for the hit Walt Disney Pictures Film, Chicken Little.
I started this review with some text from their biography, John Ondrasik has had a successful start of his career with the hit "100 years" from the previous record "The battle of everything" (2004). And his first hit "Superman" from the first album "America town" (2000) was grammy nominated, afterwards John joined superstar headliners Mick Jagger, Elton John, Paul McCartney and others for the post-9/11 fund-raiser The Concert for New York. The brand new album "Two lights" is yet another delicate piece of pop/rock candy from this amazing singer/songwriter where some of the harmonies reminds a lot of Gregg Alexander (The New Radicals). John even sounds a bit like Gregg when he sings on the song "Policeman?s X-mas party" with that typical falsetto vocals, the beautiful piano driven "The riddle" has potential of knocking out James Blunt from the charts as the new summer hit. It?s time FFF conquers Europe!
