Melee – Devils & Angels
Album: Devils & Angels
Label: Warner Bros.
Purchase: Smart Punk
Release Date: April 3rd, 2007
Sometimes I wonder whether a band was crafted to be a top 40 pop band, or they were just destined to be that from the start. Melee is one of those bands destined to end up on your mom’s favorite adult contemporary station sooner or later. This piano rock is infectious and with the right marketing (one can only hope) this band will take off extremely fast.
Melee is one of those bands that have a funny name and may turn people off but donÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t let it deter you from some awesome piano rock. I enjoyed the album the first couple times I heard it, and there are a few songs such as Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Frequently babyÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?, and Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”imitationÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? that you can’t help but just love but too many songs just fall short. Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Devils and AngelsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? is comparable to suburbia communities; yeah the houses may be different colors but their all just same 4 molds over and over again.
The new CD Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Devils and AngelsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? comes off a little too slick and too well done. I know itÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s hard to argue that something is Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Too well doneÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?, but the music gets boring and repetitive in some spots and lyrically some parts are hard to take seriously.
With all that being said, I love this band. I love the strong and amazing vocals and the catchy melodies this band lays down. I think its worth you time to check out some songs from this record, but for the money I recommend buying their last record Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Everyday behaviorÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?.
1. Built To Last
2. Rhythm Of Rain
3. Frequently Baby (She’s A Teenage Maniac)
4. For A Lifetime
5. Drive Away
6. Can’t Hold On
8. Love Carries On
9. She’s Gonna Find Me Here
10. Biggest Mistake
11. You Got
12. Stand Up
Stream New Melee Songs
Melee has three new songs Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Built to Last,Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”CanÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t Hold On,Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? and Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Frequently BabyÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? off their forthcoming album Devils & Angels for you to stream below. The album hits stores on April 3rd.
