BBC Review

Just over 40 years ago, The Shadows first picked up their electric guitars. Soon after, The Beatles followed suit and the British band as we know it was born. Two guitars, one bass, one drummer, and the rest is pop-rock history.

And then in the late 90s, post-Britpop, the major labels unleashed their weapon of mass destruction: the vocal harmony group. Today, having churned out boy band after girl band after boy band to little avail, they needed something fresh to sell to the kids. And what did they come up with? Busted. A bunch of young guys that play guitar and bass in front of an oddly-anonymous drummer. Genius. But it's not exactly rock science, is it?

Enter McFly, with their debut album Room On The Third Floor. But where their mentors, Busted, have remoulded the fresh putty of American pop-punk into something that still sounds new, McFly's influences are ancient in comparison, making the end product sound rather retrospective.

But that's not to say it's a bad record.

Already home to two striking chart-toppers ('Five Colours in Her Hair' and 'Obviously'), 'Surfer Babe' could easily be a third. The unmistakable summertime blues of the Beach Boys' 'Fun Fun Fun' flows through the album's veins (see 'Saturday Night' and 'Down By The Lake') and to many youthful ears this will no doubt sound just as good as it did in the 60s.

Elsewhere, McFly resurrect that Chuck Berry riff for the intro to 'That Girl', adapt the bassline from 'Blister In The Sun' on 'Met This Girl', and, rather cheekily, use Madness' 'It Must Be Love' for their album-closer, 'Broccoli'.

Lyrically, Room On The Third Floor is a bit hit-and-miss. For every moment of cheeky adolescent innocence ("she's getting married and I'm in misery cos her fiancé's so much bigger than me") there's a worn-out cliché that no amount of co-writing with James Busted could cover up ("when she walks in the room, my heart goes boom").

For the time being, then, McFly are surfing on a wave of borrowed riffs, and quite right too; firstly, because that's how you get yourself noticed in today's pop market, and secondly, because the riffs they've borrowed are some of the best ever written.

Just remember boys, it's all fun fun fun until the label takes your T-Bird away. --Richard Banks

5.0 out of 5 stars room on the third floor review 16 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
1. 5 colors in her hair- what's more to say about this song? Their first (#1!) single is a great song, catchy and fun to dance and, of course, listen to.
2. Obviously- this is such a great song, Their second (also #1!) single. I love this song- the lyrics, the melody and the vocals- it's all good
3. room on the third floor- well, this is a great song, but I liked the version that they performed in the Saturday show (I think) much better- for those who, like me, got used to this version before the CD was out, it might be a bit weird without the "1,2,3,4", "nooooooo!" and the "thank you!" in the end¡Kthe cd version is more calm, without Danny 'shouting' (which I love hearing!). but this song IS truly a lovely song with great lyrics.
4. That girl- this song is one of my favorites. It has the cool 60's sound to it (well, the whole cd does), really great lyrics which I love and good vocals- this to I knew as a live version which was stronger, but this awesome song sounds just right everywhere. What I like most about this song is that I can hear it over & over (and over¡K) again continuity without getting tired of it- again, awesome song.
5. Hypnotized- b the title you can conclude it's different- and it is. It has a different tune and it's really nice. The best thing I think is the lyrics.
6. Saturday night- well this is just a party song, a great one (I know I use 'great' a lot but the songs really are¡Kgreatƒº). Nice amusing lyrics and awesome sound¡Kgood job guys!
7. Met this girl- BEST ONE. Well, maybe not the best, there's a lot of amazing songs, but this one is definitely one of them. It's just like a bouncy love song, not an unusual idea with some hard lyrics or something. Great vocals, Great tune, great everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Know It's Old But... 1 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album totally sums up mcfly, summery guitar based pop with clever lyrics.
They've succeeded in not taking themselves too seriously like some 'indie' bands and have taken inspiration from pop bands such as the beatles and the beach boys.
I'd recommend buying this album if you want a fun, cheery album to sing along too...beware it gets very addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic! 6 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
I know it's been years since it's release, and I have to admit, at 15 I was trying to get away from pop bands.. and I did. I had this album when it came out first, then to gain some "credibility" I stopped listening to it and told nobody I liked McFly. BAD MOVE!
This album is great, I still listen to it on a regular basis and I don't think I've met anyone who doesn't know how much I love McFly! Genuinely great band both live and recorded :)
The songs on this album are catchy and upbeat, the ultimate FUN songs!

Although I had to fight the blushes and the little voices in my head that cried, "No, Kate, you're not ditzy and thirteen!", I am pleased that I bought this CD. The four boys that make up McFly are irresistably cute, and so are the tracks on their album- if you're after some of the latest spikey-haired brand of pop, you're not going to go far wrong here. I find it pretty hard not to smile after listening to lines like "We spoke for hours / she took off my trousers" and "She doesn't know that I'm a virgin in the kitchen because it's normally my mum"! Lyrics about crushes, rejection and parties are blended with catchy tunes that are so infectious they're in danger of ruining my social life; while it's safe to sing "Don't think I know your name but I do, but I do, but I do, you're a surfer babe" in the comfort of my bedroom, it's not advisable behaviour in the pub on rock night!
McFly have come under fire for having the nerve to draw influence from credible acts while being packaged, preened and pimped to an audience of teenage girls. While this observation is undoubtedly true, I fail to see why this is necessarily a bad thing! If you take this CD on its merits, namely that it's irresistably catchy, you're guaranteed not to go wrong. My only complaint regarding the music is that some it borders on the plain derivative, and on first listen I was playing a game of "who's the influence?". I'm glad to see that my second complaint is shared by another reviewer: The grammar in the sleeve is simply shocking, and noticing the mistakes made me feel like an old maid at eighteen. Not all of McFly's fans are yet to take formal qualifications in English!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go McFly! 18 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm loving this album! It's just so damn summery. One listen and you'll be hooked, I promise. And by the way, for anyone who thinks that McFly are just Busted all over again, you are so wrong. Where Busted turn to punk and rock for their inspiration, McFly look at the Beach Boys and the Beatles for theirs. (By the way I love Busted's stuff as well.) Talking (and listening to people talking) about teen life has never been so much fun! Avril Lavigne tried it, and succeeded in describing the teenage years as hell- which they aren't! McFly describe heartbreak, crushes and everyday life with twangy guitar music and witty, honest lyrics (written by the boys themselves). With tracks like Surfer Babe and Hypnotized that sound like they came off the back of the Beach Boys' tour bus, and contrasting songs like Not Alone, and title track Room on the Third Floor which smack of Oasis, McFly have come up with a superb album for the summer. As one of the new breed of "real popstars", bands who write their own songs and play their own music, McFly are leading the way and successors will have a lot to live up to.
And what talent! They actually can sing! And play their own instruments. Tom's vocal range is great and Danny's rasping voice well exceeds his years. Dougie and Harry sing the backing music, Tom and Danny sing lead. Dougie, Tom and Danny all play guitar while Harry's stuck at the back playing the drums. Such a pity since he's so cute. They all are actually...
Anyway, I reckon McFly are head and shoulders above everyone in the charts at the minute. I'm sure there's more to come from these guys. Well done Tom, Harry, Danny and Dougie! xxx
