Melt (2002)

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Oct 29, 2002; Lead Performance: Rascal Flatts

Regarded as country's premier boy band after their eponymous 2000 platinum debut, Flatts were more like Nashville's answer to the Monkees. Guitarist Joe Don Rooney didn't play at all on the CD, and multi-instrumentalist Jay DeMarcus was on only one cut. Here, they both join lead singer Gary LeVox for a set of catchy yet disposable country-kissed pop.
