Five For Fighting "Slice" CD Review

John Ondrasik, under the band name Five for Fighting, has released a new album "Slice". Filled with his personal songs and songs that "invoke the human spirit and make an emotional connection", this is a great new album.

I really enjoyed his music, and I believe my favorite was the album title song "Slice". The slow, thoughtful songs have such a great message. The other songs on the album include: "Note to the Unknown Solider", "Tuesday", "Chances", "This Dance", Above the Timberline", "Transfer", "Hope", "Story of Your Life", "Love Can't Change the Weather", and "Augie Nieto".

Five for Fighting is well known for songs such as "Superman" and "100 Years". As a devoted husband and father, John's oldest child made a debut in one of his videos too.
