Ways to Create by Melefluent
Ways to Create, The sophomore release from Coeur D’Alene’s Melefluent is a good representation of the band’s diversity and range. This aptly named disk should have a full title of Ways to Create a CD That Spans Every Genre from Hip-hop to Funk but that probably wouldn’t have fit on the cover.
Pop tracks such as “Friends Don’t Let Friends Steal Friend’s Guitars” strike a nice balance between catchy lyrics and rocking guitar solos, while in “Fine Women and Wine” the band takes a funkier approach that reminds me of Hot Action Cop (wow, what an obscure reference).
Overall a really good disc with enough diversity to keep me interested through multiple plays, although I feel that some tracks get a little guitar heavy for my personal liking.
Individual tracks from Ways to Create are available on iTunes, or the album in full can be found at CDBaby.com. For more information, check out the band’s MySpace page at www.myspace.com/melefluent.
