I recently reviewed Five For Fighting – Slice audio tracks for a campaign sponsored by the One2One Network. I will be honest this is not my typical choice of music but I heard that Fall is a great time to update your playlist and so I figured I would open my ears for some new music!
About Five For Fighting
Five For Fighting’s breakthrough came in 2001 with the Grammy Nominated song “Superman”, from the Platinum certified “America Town”. The song was climbing the charts upon release, and when 9/11 happened, it became a song of healing for the nation. FFF performed the song at the post 9/11 fundraiser The Concert for New York which paid tribute to all the firefighters, police officers & paramedics affected by the events of 9/11.
On the 2004 release, “The Battle For Everything”, the song “100 Years” followed in the footsteps of “Superman” as yet another inspiring reflective song.

My Take On Five For Fighting – Slice
Although this is not my normal type of music, I fell in love with the album. The three songs that I just loved and will certainly be adding to my MP3 player list are; Above the Timberline, Love Can’t Change The Weather, and Note To The Unknown Soldier. Fantastic tracks!!
