McBusted Album - Review

Sunday, 7 December 2014


This is a bit of a controversial one. There are so many people that are against McBusted, some of them are the die hard McFly fans, some of them are the people who just want to hate them because of who they are or what they represent, the cheesy pop band from the 00's, and some people just genuinely dislike the music. I must admit I am one of those people who are slightly annoyed that they didn't bring out the already recorded 6th McFly album before they started this new band. I am a massive McFly fan and have always loved them but no matter how much I am trying to deny it I am starting to like McBusted. 

'Air Guitar' wasn't my favourite song, I am the first to hold my hands up to that, but it is growing on me. However as soon as I heard their newest single 'Get Over It' I loved it! So much so I thought I would give the album the chance I was adamant I wasn't going to give it. Now don't get me wrong I love Matt Willis and James Bourne. I have met both of them and they were genuinely nice and lovely people but I really wanted McFly back. After hearing this album, I don't think it's going to happen any time soon. The songs are so catchy and, even though not all of them are amazing, obviously thats just my opinion, there are quite a few on there that I really liked straight away.  

'Hate Your Guts' was one of my immediate favourites and you can definitely hear Mark Hoppus' influence. The same thing happened with 'Before You Knew Me' the lyrics were so funny and clever. There were also songs that I hated as soon as I heard them, most specifically 'Riding On My Bike'. It was the complete opposite of the last two I mentioned, with immature lyrics that annoyed me so much I turned it off before the second chorus. 

I haven't heard the album enough to say whether it is one I will be still listening too in a few months time, but I definitely enjoyed it on the most part. I would say that if you are one of those McFly fans  not listening out of spite or people hating them just because they are not 'cool' enough for you, you should definitely listen to it, even if you just stream it on Spotify or Youtube. Don't write it off before you've given it a chance, like I nearly did, it might just surprise you.

    1. Ahh no :( when I saw them live the 'Busted' portion wasn't great on the vocals but I thought it may have just been a one off because when I saw Matt Willis in Wicked he was amazing!
