Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The third studio album from McFly gets off to a rollicking start with a series of catchy, vibrant openers. First there's the enormously infectious "We Are The Young"; second the feel-good classic "Star Girl"; and third, the undeniably rockin' "Please Please". This titillating triumvirate is enough to reinstate the band's reputation - slightly damaged by 2005's lacklustre Wonderland - as fun-loving pop-punk provocateurs. The buoyant harmony-laden pop of "Sorry's Not Good Enough" and "Transylvania" are also catchy enough, but it's not long before this album, like the last, is undermined by songs like "Bubble Wrap", "Lonely", "Walk In The Sun" and "Little Joanna": cloying, clichéd songs with uninspiring lyrics and horribly cheesy sentiments. As the album wears on, a disturbing Queen/Bon Jovi influence also reveals itself, first on the finale, "Home Is Where The Heart Is" and much more overtly on their a cover of Freddie Mercury's "Don't Stop Me Now", a track no one really relished the first time around. When they're good, McFly are very, very good. But when they're bad… --Danny McKenna

Motion in the Ocean is a great album - probably McFly's best so far. This version of the album includes the new single "Baby's Coming Back" on it as well as a DVD of their concert at Wembley in 2006.

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. The new track 'Babys Coming Back' - a cover of the old Jellyfish hit is a bit of a grower. It really grows and sticks in your head, probably why they have released this.

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!

I brought this album for my McFly mad daughter the day it came out. She listened to it and said its the best album they've release. It includes the number one singles 'Star Girl' 'Please Please' and Comic Relief single 'Don't Stop Me Now'. A truly great band and album. Would recommend it to anyone interested in Pop/Rock music. I listened to it my self and honestly good. 5 star album

34?? I'm 56!! My daughter has played this incessantly in the car and on her PC before it blew up and I have to say that it is very good indeed. The vocals are excellent, as are the harmonies, and the musicianship is also surprising. I am not sure who plays what or what accident of nature plays keys, but it's a good heavy sound where needed without the brainless crunching of miserable stuff like Fall Out Boy and Green "who are the mystery musicians?" Day.

The influences are not concealed and range from Bat out of Hell (intro) to "You can go Your Own Way" (Fleetwood Mac)lifted almost note for note in one of the "heavy" bits. But I can forgive everything for the track "Litte Joanna" which could be maudlin, sugary, creepy or soppy but is none of those. It's a truly lovely song, beautifully sung and well executed, with a hook line chorus that will drive you bonkers.

A real surprise, this one. Without qualification, I think it's really very good indeed.

I have now seen McFly live at the BIC Bournemouth and remain impressed by their ability and, especially, vocal harmonies. Two major observations, though - the volume was at an almost unbearable level throughout and many tinies left the concert with their ears bleeding (and I have listened to Cream, Jeff Beck and Hendrix at close range): and the chat between numbers was acutely embarrassing, scatological and mind-numbingly childish. I can imagine that McFly unplugged would be very good indeed - but they need to employ a full-time keyboarde player as the contribution from the kindly gent at the back was enormous.

But the volume: it blurred any subtleties that the band had and upset many of their younger fans. It was also distorted. Their support band Elliott Junior had a far better and much more controlled sound. Leave the brain-frying to Motorhead, boys - your songs need to be heard.
