Review of Five for Fighting's New Album "Slice"

On October 13, Five for Fighting is releasing their new album "Slice." Their first single off their new album is "Chances." I was able to preview their new album before it is released because One2One Network selected me to review their album on my blog.
I feel that the best song on the album is Chances. This song has a good melody and I like the lyrics. The album contains stories about US servicemen (Note to the Unknown Soldier), friends and family. In this album, John talks about current events and his own experiences and uses piano, bass and drums in his songs. While the lead singer has an amazing voice, I felt that the songs all have similiar melodies. I thought the album needs to have a greater mix of upbeat and slow songs.
