The debut from this Denver quartet blends piano-based Brit-pop swooning and scruffy alt-rock melancholia, as if that Keane guy were backed by the Counting Crows. Achy ballads such as "Fall Away" are too long on airbrushed prettiness, but between the band's sculpted guitars and meatier cuts such as the lead single, "Over My Head (Cable Car)," How to Save a Life offers more elegantly wasted twentysomething angst than the average O.C. soundtrack.
