Overview

When a vacancy appears in pop music, it doesn't take long to fill it. As Busted moved out of pure pop into more serious material, the way was left open for McFly to capture teenage girls' hearts with their debut album, Room on the 3rd Floor. Named after the character in the Back to the Future trilogy and sounding like an updated 2000s garage band with close harmonies and raw guitars, McFly opened their album with two number one singles, "5 Colours in Her Hair" and "Obviously," so Room on the 3rd Floor really couldn't fail -- and it didn't, hitting the top on its first week of release. "That Girl," the third single released, could have sat easily on a Beach Boys album from the 1960s, or possibly even the early Beatles with the count of "one two three four" before a guitar crashes in. "Surfer Babe" (fairly predictably) and "Down by the Lake" were also Beach Boys-sounding tracks. It's not that good, however -- just a fun summery mid-2000s pop album from four lads who sound as if they were enjoying themselves singing mostly about girls. "Met This Girl" also took its influences from the Rolling Stones of the 1960s with a touch of Manfred Mann's fast-paced blues. "Everybody likes to party on a Saturday night," claimed the lads on the track "Saturday Night," and if you were about 13 years old and female, this was the album of summer 2004.

I also found out about McFly in Just My Luck. I've gotten their cd Just My Luck, and Motion in the Ocean. They are an amazing band with unique talent. I know they'll eventually get very popular in the US. After all. They are the new Beatles!

I recently went to Ireland, and heard all about this awesome band McFly, so of course i have to hear them, so i buy the cd, and they ROCK! they do old school rock and rool, mixed wiht a little pop, and new age lyrics, i think thats a pretty rad combination, but dont let me speak for you, listen to them, and find out for yourself!

Even though this band is for the most part unknown in the us...unless you watched just my luck and happened to google them afterward...everyone should give them a listen. You won't be disappointed, and if you are then you just have bad taste in music..and who knows what else.
