The Denver band The Fray has made a major national splash with its 2005 debut album, How to Save a Life. The group, formed by a couple of former schoolmates, has been ubiquitous throughout the year.

The 12 songs on How to Save a Life reflect the skills of The Fray's members, each of whom is well grounded in music. The quartet incorporates guitar, piano and vocals into a melodic brand of rock that brings to mind Coldplay's power ballads. This segment originally aired on Dec. 15, 2005.
