Rascal Flatts truly is one of the best and inspiring groups to emerge from
Country music. Their second album, Melt brought them their first two
#1 hits: "These Days," and "Mayberry." Of course, they would
achieve more #1's afterwards. Melt is an ultimate Country album,
especially those who enjoy today's country, as it has a more Country-sounding
atmosphere, than where some Country music has a more Pop mix.
"Too Good Is True" may have just a slip touch of Pop, yet it's
the harmonies and the Country instruments that make it a good country song,
from start to finish. "I Melt" is another good song, capturing the
sound of Country, 21st Century Style. "Love You Out Loud" is one of
those songs where you know you've heard it playing continuously on Country
Radio, and of course, the line, "Now-ow-ow..." is the catchy hook line.
There are many good tracks here that are just relaxing, as if you're
enjoying your morning coffee on a nice, warm Sunday morning: "Dry County
Girl," "Like I Am" and "You." Not sure if "Fallin' Upside Down"
was regularly played or a hit, but it easily could have been a very popular hit
(just like many), given enough airplay.
Rascal Flatts gives Bluegrass music an updated approach throughout this
album, as "Shine On" expresses this updated touch. Adding to that
morning cup of coffee is the relaxing "Any Worst Fear."
Melt definitely is a fantastic Country album. Giving Bluegrass an
updated sound, and RF's harmonies are truly exceptional. RF is next to
Ricky Skaggs (1980s), as they brought back Bluegrass music, and more recently,
the O Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Every song on Melt is
definitely enjoyable; not a bad song at all. Melt can easily be enjoyed
over and over. Having a Country sound more than Pop, true Country fans will
enjoy this one.
