How can it be that some people can not fail? John Ondrasik is a man that after his superhit "Superman" he´ve just delivered good stuff. And this, the new album is no exception. Nice piano-based pop all spiced with an amazing voice. It´s that simple. First out you will find the Bruce Hornsby-scented "Slice" which is a wonderful track. Other favorites on the album is "Tuesday", which sounds like a mix of Marc Jordan and Elton John, "Chances", which sits on a fantastic chorus and a lovely spirit of the Counting Crows and the best song "Story Of The Life" which is the most uptempo-tune on the album. No, it´s unfair to name just a few songs when the entire disc is more or less as good as these tracks. There are a few tracks that are a little less interesting and stays in the "the adult grill-party at the weekend-land" but do you like John Ondrasik and Five For Fighting this is a "safe as a rock-buy".
Fightstar formed in late 2003 after Alex Westaway and Charlie Simpson, former Busted frontman, met at a party in Simpson´s London home. Following an impromptu jam session, Westaway and Simpson decided to form a band. After a few songs had been written, the band recruited bassist Dan Haigh, a school friend of guitarist Alex Westaway and drummer Omar Abidi.
