Overview

Busted's US debut grabs the strongest tracks from the youthful British trio's two albums, their 2002 debut (also called Busted) and its rapid-fire follow-up Present for Everyone, both of which were smash hits in their home country. Sort of a rock reinvention of the boy band concept, Busted's James Bourne, Mattie Jay, and Charlie Simpson match slick melodies to blaring guitars and lyrics about being young, hooking up, and having crushes on stewardesses and schoolteachers. In addition to the singles "What I Go to School For," "Air Hostess," "Year 3000," and "Crashed the Wedding," Busted includes the boys' symphonic pop version of the Thunderbirds theme (written for the 2004 live-action film adaptation) and a run through the Undertones classic "Teenage Kicks." The latter track's a little too processed, but some raucous lead guitar and strong verses from each Busted principal help make it a fun romp.
