The full-length debut from Aussie quartet ME, titled ‘Even The Odd Ones Out’, is one of flamboyance, ambition and real imagination, yet it still might leave you a little cold. Opening track, ‘Hoo Ha’, sets the tone for the rest of the record; it’s a song which sounds like Queen mixed with a sprinkling of new indie bands like fun. and with some orchestral stuff thrown in for good measure. It’s kind of bizarre yet it works rather well, although you have to replay the track a few times to have any appreciation for its elegance and unique sound.
