BUSTED A Present For Everyone (2003 UK Special Edition 15-track CD album including the singles Crashed The Wedding Air Hostess Whos David & 3AM picture sleeve MCD60090)

Amazon.co.uk

Busted may look about as rock as Westlife, but A Present for Everyone confirms that under those chiselled cheek bones and polite smiles they're every inch the British Blink 182. For the most part, the clean-cut trio's second album is full of the same dumb fun as their first. Careering hyperactively through trashy skate-punk fantasies, classroom crushes and troublesome girlfriends, "Crashed the Wedding" and "Who's David" are irresistibly throwaway teen trauma, while "She Wants to Be Me" deals with the difficult issue of an overly dependent girlfriend ("she's so obsessed with me/now she stands up to pee"). That line aside, second time around there's even a newfound maturity that creeps through in some of their songwriting, which means that they carry off the bittersweet pop of break-up song "Over Now" with conviction and without resorting to cheap laughs. Ultimately though, it's the pogoing choruses and crude one-liners that are the main attraction. And they don't come much better than "Air Hostess" with its less than wholesome appreciation of a girl in uniform: "I messed my pants when we flew over France". --Dan Gennoe

All you people who claim this to be a rubbish album must be about 70 years old and have hearing problems- Busted are the best band around at the moment and in my opinion are just as good, if not better, than Blink 182. Busted came 3,2, and first place in cosmo girl's 101 most wanted guys and also won "Best band in the world- ever" in smash hit's poll. I don't see greenday and blink winning any of these awards.
Their light hearted lyrics and catchy choruses really get your head nodding, and rocked-up numbers like "3am" make you want to jump up and dance.
This album is totally worth the money- I got it a couple of days after it was released and I still love to listen to it everyday, all the way through.
Those people who critisise Busted for "immature lyrics" and "punk wannabes", you belong in an old folk's home or the "Deaf/ Blind department" at the nearest hospital.

Who cares if it's punk or if it's pop, noone can deny that they are a marketing dream. Whoever thought this one up clearly saw a way of making a quick buck and good on them. They've got three lads, all undenyably good looking, got them to write hilariously funny (and catchy) songs and made a considerable amount of money in the process. Who cares if it's as cheesy and manufactured as "pop idol" because if they are giving people the music they wanna hear then good on them. We'd all like to be in their shoes, they are young, talented and loaded.
This album shows a different and more polished side to the band and the standout tracks are '3am', 'crashed the wedding' and 'why'. Some say they are an insult to the world of punk but if they are making succesful albums, then does it really matter?
Theres a stigma attached to being a busted fan. If you ever admit to liking this band then youseem to have your "proper punk fan" label stripped of you. There shouldn't be because again they've made a cracking album thats selling like hotcakes and they are having fun in the process!
Don't waste your time pretending to think it's a con, refusing to buy their albums and protesting that you hate them. Your not fooling anybody! I can't wait for the day that people accept this band for who they are and appreciate that they make undenyably popular and catchy music.

I'm 24 and probably the oldest reviewer doing Busted, but who cares, I'm fixated! I was given this album as a surprise gift and from the moment I put it on I was hooked.
Busted, as other reviewers have noted, have grown up - but they don't do it crudely. Potential obscenities have been replaced by sweet little sound effects and the sexual overtones of several songs will go over the heads of younger listeners. Each track brims with enthusiasm, and you can tell that the boys really enjoyed making this album. They sing about real life, and real experiences, and you warm to them for their frankness. "Air Hostess" replaces "What I Go To School For" as the boys graduate into the grown-ups' league; the angst of "You Said No" is painfully inherent in "Fake" and "3am". What comes over in this album is painful and humorous honesty. "I find your sense of humour spiteful, it shouldn't make you proud" (Who's David) alongside classics like "I messed my pants when we flew over France" (Air Hostess).
There are no trips to the Year 3000 on this album - but the Year 2004 should be a good one for the boys.

Having bought and liked the first album from busted, i went out and bought their second effort, 'A present for everyone'. I was pleasantly suprised at the development that busted have taken since their arrival in the charts with the almost geekish 'What i go to school for'. Their sound is an improved rockier one, with darker, teen angst songs that will no boubt hit the spot among the, all too documented, suppressed teenagers in this country.
Typical topics are confronted throughout the album, which most teenagers will relate to, such as looking for and losing love, being a geek, and having girlfriends which are geeks('She wants to be me' showing the latter in an amusing fashion). All of this culminates in a more mature sound throughout the album; and without the risk of losing their target audience.
Particular praise must go to 'Why', solely sung by Charlie, which starts off as a ballad and develops into a fast paced rant about love and the shortcomings of it. Another particularly striking song is '3am', which again tackles the subject of love and shows off their more rockier sound.
Disappointments of the album are 'Air hostest' and 'Crashed the wedding' which both show that they have not totally rid of their immaturity. Also the topics they tackele do get repetetive, and i question whether at their age they have experienced all that they claim. Apart from this the album is an enjoyable listen, which does show a development from their self titled debut.

I'd like to respond to the few individuals who seem determined to review every Busted release and give it 1-star (complaining that it should only really get zero stars).
These people miss the point of Busted (and the good that Busted and McFly are doing for UK music).
I'm a father of two children who like Busted and without Busted they would be listening to brain-dead pop bands who play no instruments and just release copies of other people's songs. It is good that once again we have bands writing their own songs and playing their own instruments. It is good that kid's are being encouraged to pick up a guitar rather than attend dance lessons!!!
I listen to real music ranging from punk bands like The Clash and Rancid, through sixties pop of The Beatles and Rolling Stones, eighties pop of Echo & The Bunnymen and Jesus and Mary Chain through to more modern bands like The Manic Street Preachers and Oasis. I also listen to rock music from the likes of Guns & Roses and Iron Maiden.
I would much rather see Busted or McFly at number 1 in the UK singles chart than naff manufactured "so-called" performers like Westlife or Will Young.
Even if you are not a fan of the music, how can you critisise a band for writing their own songs and playing their own instruments?
Find something better to do with your time than just write stupid reviews of Busted releases. Busted deserve respect for going against the flow of manufactured pop.
