Product Description

Busted may look about as rock as Westlife, but A Present for Everyone confirms that under those chiselled cheek bones and polite smiles they're every inch the British Blink 182. For the most part, the clean-cut trio's second album is full of the same dumb fun as their first. Careering hyperactively through trashy skate-punk fantasies, classroom crushes and troublesome girlfriends, "Crashed the Wedding" and "Who's David" are irresistibly throwaway teen trauma, while "She Wants to Be Me" deals with the difficult issue of an overly dependent girlfriend ("she's so obsessed with me/now she stands up to pee"). That line aside, second time around there's even a newfound maturity that creeps through in some of their songwriting, which means that they carry off the bittersweet pop of break-up song "Over Now" with conviction and without resorting to cheap laughs. Ultimately though, it's the pogoing choruses and crude one-liners that are the main attraction. And they don't come much better than "Air Hostess" with its less than wholesome appreciation of a girl in uniform: "I messed my pants when we flew over France". --Dan Gennoe

All you people who claim this to be a rubbish album must be about 70 years old and have hearing problems- Busted are the best band around at the moment and in my opinion are just as good, if not better, than Blink 182. Busted came 3,2, and first place in cosmo girl's 101 most wanted guys and also won "Best band in the world- ever" in smash hit's poll. I don't see greenday and blink winning any of these awards.
Their light hearted lyrics and catchy choruses really get your head nodding, and rocked-up numbers like "3am" make you want to jump up and dance.
This album is totally worth the money- I got it a couple of days after it was released and I still love to listen to it everyday, all the way through.
Those people who critisise Busted for "immature lyrics" and "punk wannabes", you belong in an old folk's home or the "Deaf/ Blind department" at the nearest hospital.

Having bought and liked the first album from busted, i went out and bought their second effort, 'A present for everyone'. I was pleasantly suprised at the development that busted have taken since their arrival in the charts with the almost geekish 'What i go to school for'. Their sound is an improved rockier one, with darker, teen angst songs that will no boubt hit the spot among the, all too documented, suppressed teenagers in this country.
Typical topics are confronted throughout the album, which most teenagers will relate to, such as looking for and losing love, being a geek, and having girlfriends which are geeks('She wants to be me' showing the latter in an amusing fashion). All of this culminates in a more mature sound throughout the album; and without the risk of losing their target audience.
Particular praise must go to 'Why', solely sung by Charlie, which starts off as a ballad and develops into a fast paced rant about love and the shortcomings of it. Another particularly striking song is '3am', which again tackles the subject of love and shows off their more rockier sound.
Disappointments of the album are 'Air hostest' and 'Crashed the wedding' which both show that they have not totally rid of their immaturity. Also the topics they tackele do get repetetive, and i question whether at their age they have experienced all that they claim. Apart from this the album is an enjoyable listen, which does show a development from their self titled debut.

When I initially heard this album I acknowledged the obvious progression in their song writing direction. The songs are a lyrical equivalent of the young American teen movie genre: with moments of fun, sadness, and overt boyish anxiety concealed with humour: "So baby tell me now do I need to measure...?" Baby, and what indeed do you think you need to measure? Fortunately not too obvious so the littlies in their fan base will be able to remain innocently oblivious to any sexual references!
This album is different from its predecessor so it would be pointless to offer a direct comparison. However, I've noticed that the song writing has been split more equally on this album, so it's good to see a group effort.
I'd recommend this album for any music lover's collection as it offers an eclectic mix of young, fresh punk/pop, demonstrating a real appreciation of lyrical manipulation and mercuriality.
It certainly would be a good present!

This is just as good as the first busted album, if not better! There's more tracks on this album including the brilliant 'Over now' and 'Better than this'. Busted have a more mature sound on album, and James' vocals on 'Can't Break Thru' are fantastic. If you're a true Busted fan, you'll be totally addicted to this...I am!

I brought the album on the day of release and having waiting for ages i knew i wasn't gonna be let down!
Air Hostess reminds me of Dawsoons Geek; the tongue in cheek humour abd brilliant lyrics, Who's David and 3am are superb tracks
She wants to be me is one of my faves but the tracks that i feel really showcase all their voices are why, meet u there,nerdy, loner in love, falling for u and fake. They are all very good and have funky lyrics, also some are more seriuos and deep than others
Its a must for every busted fan

Who cares if it's punk or if it's pop, noone can deny that they are a marketing dream. Whoever thought this one up clearly saw a way of making a quick buck and good on them. They've got three lads, all undenyably good looking, got them to write hilariously funny (and catchy) songs and made a considerable amount of money in the process. Who cares if it's as cheesy and manufactured as "pop idol" because if they are giving people the music they wanna hear then good on them. We'd all like to be in their shoes, they are young, talented and loaded.
This album shows a different and more polished side to the band and the standout tracks are '3am', 'crashed the wedding' and 'why'. Some say they are an insult to the world of punk but if they are making succesful albums, then does it really matter?
Theres a stigma attached to being a busted fan. If you ever admit to liking this band then youseem to have your "proper punk fan" label stripped of you. There shouldn't be because again they've made a cracking album thats selling like hotcakes and they are having fun in the process!
Don't waste your time pretending to think it's a con, refusing to buy their albums and protesting that you hate them. Your not fooling anybody! I can't wait for the day that people accept this band for who they are and appreciate that they make undenyably popular and catchy music.
