I would expect Matt Willis to have done what James Bourne of Son Of Dork did, and follow in the same footsteps as Busted. But Willis has moved on to bigger and better things. Willis' solo debut Don't Let It Go To Waste is full of anthemic stadium pop, with a more mature heavier sound than that of Busted's. Think Solo Green Day mixed with a bit of The Sex Pistols with a hint of Imogen Heap. Don't Let It Go To Waste has the potential to take Willis above and beyond the sucess of Busted and become one of the UK's leading solo artists. Don't be put off by Matt Being in Busted, he has grown as both a singer & songwriter. Busted fans may be interested in this album along with any fans of good pop-rock music.

This is a surprisingly good debut album, varied, edgy, catchy and with far more personality than a lot of artists around at the moment. It really deserves bigger success. Buy it - you won't be disappointed!

I admit it - I loved Busted. I couldn't help myself, and I've been looking forward to this album for ages. And in some respects it was a disappointment as I really couldn't take some of the tracks (interestingly some of the ones other reviewers have loved - just goes to show that everyone's taste is unique!)

But some of the songs are amazing and the rest are very good. I am addicted to this album now and can't beleive it did so poorly in the charts!

It's not Busted. It's not even 'grown up' Busted. It's not rubbish someone's released to cash in on a reality TV programme (he did the show to cash in on the album if anything). It's something different and I think really worth listening to. I recommend it to almost anyone.

I recived this album for christmas, and i still play it none stop whenever i get the chance...I Love this album! ok, yes i admit it, i did want this album mainly because i was a fan of busted!! But , who secretly wasnt? ;) anyway, this album is utterly fantastic! each song has a different sound yet all are very catchy ! I no longer see him as 'matt from busted' he is matt willis, a talented solo artist! I have no idea why this album didn't go further then it has! Its not fair, this album is number 1 material!! but i guess alot of people still see him as ' that lad of busted ' and he just isnt getting given a chance! which is very sad , I really REALLY urge people to buy this album and give it a go , im so certain that you wont be disapointed!

Ha. i love this album - got it at Christmas and I'm addicted. It's a totally different sound to Busted but if you liked Busted you probably will like it anyway. Every track is interesting and he puts a lot of character into his songs.

I saw him singing earlier today at a rugby game and played the first four songs on the album and it rocked. The songs got everyone excited and ready for the match. Buy it. You just have to listen to it.

This album couldn't be more perfect! It may now be 4 years old, but everyone should still own it! After meeting Mr Willis the other day after he stared in footlose, you can't help but to wonder how he's still not a massive success because his voice is as good as ever and he literally is the nicest guy i've ever met. So everyone should definately buy this album, i couldn't live without it.

I have been waiting for this album ever since Busted broke up. Mattie was my favourite member and I must admit I was worried that his first solo attempt would be a dissappointment . . . luckily Matt has risen to the challenge! This album is a stand out album, all the songs have their own strengths and it is a great listen. you will be singing along before you know what's happening! This album is Busted grown-up and more rocky but for those who love the cheekiness of Busted this album will suit you down to the ground!

Buy it, you won't regret it! In fact you'll love it!

The secret to sales success if you find yourself in a boy band appears to be simple; whatever you do, stay in that boy band. Musical history is littered with the failed careers of those who have tried to make a solo career after the break up of, or after splitting from, a boy band. Take That never made it as solo artists and have had to reform for sales success and Boyzone are rumoured to be planning the same thing, although Ronan Keating is an exception that proves the rule. Brian McFadden hasn’t made it without Westlife and even going back a little further, East 17 and Five proved that the old saying “together we stand, divided we fall” applies to music as well as in so much of life.

Busted is another group this theory can be applied to. Fightstar and Son of Dork, the new groups of Charlie Simpson and James Bourne respectively, have failed to set the world alight. Indeed, the former have lost their UK record deal; whilst the latter won several “worst” awards in 2006. Sadly, despite his attempts to increase sales figures by winning “I’m A Celebrity…” 2006, it looks as if the same is going to be true of Matt Willis’ “Don’t Let It Go To Waste”, which is a dreadful shame as it’s actually a pretty decent album and he seemed like a decent bloke whilst trapped in the jungle.

Matt Willis is likely to find himself caught between two groups. Those who hated Busted won’t buy the album, despite how far he’s trying to distance himself from his boy band past; which listening to the album isn’t actually all that far. Those who were huge fans of Busted will be put off by the slightly heavier edge to the music, as he’s desperately trying to be a rock artist and not a pop star on this album, even if he doesn’t entirely succeed.

This is the album’s main failing point musically.
