Leave it, they're not worth it


WITH a name like Mêlée, and an album title like Devils And Angels, you would be forgiven for expecting some battle-hardened, fist-pumping, leather-clad rock to come ripping out of the speakers.
Instead, the Orange County, California quartet only hit listeners lightly with a schtick of radio-friendly middle-of-the-road melodic pop.
Mêlée tracks like Frequently Baby (She's A Teenage Maniac) and Built To Last typify the bland band's teen drama backing track sound.
Damn them, they're so middle of the road to give them 1/5 would be too extreme for them.
In fact, to say anything interesting about Mêlée you'll have a fight on your hands.
