BBC Review

Like a politician with a hankering for power, Charlie Simpson (née Charlie from Busted) realised it was time for an image change. If Fightstar - his ex-Busted, post-hardcore outfit - were to rupture the mainstream, he'd have to get rid of his boy-band baggage. His amour for air-hostesses and feisty school teachers would have to be dropped quicker than Labour's commitment to renationalising the railways.

Sometimes he's seemed a little too desperate to prove his new loyalties, shooting a video in the same underground tunnel famously ravaged by The Prodigy in their establishment-baiting 'Firestarter' promo, and, if rumours are to believed, answering his former record label's polite request for 'poppier' material by abruptly tearing up their contract.

His latest move is to hire American producer Matt Wallace to produce Fightstar's second album, the ungrammatically titled One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours. An architect of the nu-metal movement, Wallace's CV reads something like the pencil case of a lip-studded, angsty teen, embellished with names like Faith No More and Deftones.

But, even with Wallace calling the shots, One Day Son still feels like a record tugged in too many directions. Radio-friendly single '99' is weighty yet melodic, 'You and I' is a ripening attempt at a breathy serenade, while harder tracks like 'Tannhauser' throb with well-regimented aggression, threatening to pulverise anyone who might question the band's rock credentials.

One Day Son sees Fightstar attempt many styles - some skilfully; others ham-fistedly - but, as Charlie will no doubt be keen to parrot, at least Busted's skimpy, faux-punk stylings aren't among them. --Robert Jackman

After the fantastic "They Liked You Better When You Were Dead" E.P and "Grand Unification" as a debut album, i was always hoping to see Fightstars second album become equal to their earlier work in brilliance. Because Fightstar are quality songwriters as a whole band i expected nothing less than it to be a fantastic piece of work. Knowing this would be a very hard task i awaited to see what One Day Son contained.
After one listen One Day Son certainly put up to the challenge as been as good as previous material.

The first single "We Apologise for Nothing" (although not the first to be heard by fans as 99 was released with a video in early june as a present for impatient fightstar lovers)is an immediate return to classic fightstar, epic Post- Hardcore which always lives up to the american take on the genre Thrice,Thursday e.t.c with a catchy chorus and riff as well as both charlie and al on vocals.
Hearing this however before the album is no way to tell what is instore upon one day son. A perfect mixture of Post-Hardcore and Metal riffs. Piano, Screaming and Female vocals makes the album a near on 46 minutes of perfection. The album was written and polished off in a tough period of Charlies life, this is portrayed in the lyrics of songs "Deathcar" and "Unfamiliar Ceilings". This is another reason i believe why the album is heading in so many different directions, the band have simply matured, and as a result written a brilliant record. Some people have criticised the elements of other bands in fightstars previous work especially deftones as a source because they are charlies favourite band. However nothing is stolen at all from other bands,far from it.

I bought the first Fightstar album, purely because i was interested to see if 'the goodlooking one from busted' could actually pull off the transition from pop pin-up to credible rock act. I had heard Zane Lowe mention that it was actually quite good and thought that was a good recomendation and so decided to take a punt.
At first listen all i really liked was ashes and maybe paint your target in a guilty pleasure kind of way.
I then listened to it a couple more times and within a few listens discovered that there was actually a lot more under the surface than the initial quick once over would have you believe. Grand Unification is without doubt one of the best albums that came out that year and is always in my car stereo (even now).

One Day Son, on the first listen was to say the least, a little of a disapointment. The only tracks to my taste being Deathcar and Tanhauser Gate.
However , I endevoured to persevere and sure enough, by the end of the third listen i was actually very into over half of the tracks on the album.

So whats it like? Well, there is the sense that this is a true attempt at a 'grown-up' album with a much more anthemnic sound than the previous one and with the band clearly more confident with thier instruments and each other. The sound is big and powerful for the most part with immaculate timing on the start-stop crunchy riffs that characterise the overall sound of this album.

You can actually hear who the infuences are as you progress through the tracks. Starting with some Foo fighters for the first 2 tracks they then slide into strong hints of Muse with the piano intro and prog-rock feel of the third and fourth tracks.

Lacking the first albums keen interest by Charlie's bushy eyebrow adoring Busted fans, this record was always going to have to stand up on the merit of its songwriting. Thats not to say that 'Grand Unification' was a bad album, with immediate killers like 'Paint Your Target' it showed how much distance had been put between the jangly pop of Busted and the introspective rock of Fightstar.
This album sees them move further away from instant pleasure, and towards more mature songwriting. Don't get me wrong, if you like the crunch of guitar and jackhammer drumming you are well catered for here. It's just like they have outgrown the teenage fumbles looking to get down to it as quick as possible, and have learnt that foreplay isn't just for grownups, the buildup can be just as enjoyable.
Charlie obviously isn't afraid to alienate fans in the course of persuing his musical path as demonstrated by the move from Busted. Although the musical style here is a subtle shift from the previous album, it may none the less push his audience away a little further. This may be a move for the better however, after all there are other members of the band, and as displayed here are equaly as important to the sound. Hopefully this record could be the one to see them break from the 'band with Charlie from Busted' tag and allow them to stand on the strenghs of the songs on display here.

Thought the first album was brilliant once I got past the idea that Charlie was once from the bubble pop that was Busted. Had high hopes for this album and then on first listen was disappointed - wait, no hang on! This album takes a little more time to get to grips with than the first one. On second, third and forth etc... the songs start to grow and after a while they're all right there with the first album. Final track is classic but I thought the female vocals were too produced and not personal enough. Charlie starts it off with sincerity but her vocals make the track out to be more of a demo than studio finished track.

Buy it and if you liked the first one or heard there latest single I guarantee you'll see this has money well spent.

Now will wait to see them once again in Leeds!!!
