Brilliant 3rd Album,
This review is from: Motion in the Ocean (Bonus Track) (Audio CD)
McFly's 3rd Album is quite possibly their best so far - if not just behind Room On The 3rd Floor. Motion In The Ocean see's them combine their last 2 albums in way. The Room On The 3rd Floor influence is obvious in songs like 'Star Girl' and 'Please, Please' - The Singles and possibly 'Friday Night' which is a highlight. But they write some beautiful ballads as well which are the main part of the album, basing on a Wonderland type approach. 'Bubble Wrap' I Think is the best song on the album and is a must hear track which probably won't be a single but should be. 'Little Joanna', 'Don't Stop Me Now' and the apparebtly upcoming single 'Sorrys Not Good Enough' are heavily piano based and all great ballads. But on this album McFly also take an edgier side and go slightly alternative. This is clear on 'Transylvania' which was on the Star Girl single and is great. They go rockier on 2 tracks being 'We Are The Young' - also on the Star Girl single, and 'Home Is Where The Heart Is' which is the song that was their World Cup Bid. Both tracks are fantastic. A bit of a different track on the album in some ways is 'Walk In The Sun' which is one of my favourites as it is Danny's chance to show off and he does it well with voice and acoustic guitar. The only other track i haven't covered yet is 'Lonely' which reminds you of their 2nd ever single 'Obviously' but with a slighly darker side but still is brilliant.
Over all if you need to know how good this album is, When one of the slighly weak points is in the #1 single 'Please, Please' it shows you just how good this album is. Keep up the work Boys!
