McFly, boyband maybe, but with most of the members now being 25, it was time to grow up. If This was six years ago and you said McFly, I would have said All about you, and urh. Now putting aside the boyband tag a tag I do find hard to understand, were the Beatles a boyband, or The Jam or Stones, no I don't think they were. McFly came along at a time when teenagers wanted a little more creditability from there bands. At the time we were board with all the rubbish boy singing groups jumping on the bandwagon of Take That. However McFly were not manufactured, Tom and Danny met had a mutual interest in writing songs and then recruited Bass Play Douggie and Drummer Harry. Four albums down the line and Above the Noise came and what a great album, credit where credit is due, it is barley out of the car, The hits are great Party Girl and Shine a Light, but the other tracks like End of the world, Nowhere left to run are just as good as these single, and I can't help singing a long with This song, strange these guys can write a tune. So wondering it I had missed out i bought the greatest hits, I was happily pleased and enjoyed all of them especially my heart never lies. Don't dismiss this group thinking they are just for teenage girls they are not much different to all bands that start out, but McFly deserve to be around for a long time. Its difficult for any band who has a mainly female following to grab a knew audience as there fans go onto the next new thing, but with the help of Harry Judd doing strictly and Doggie doing I'm a celebratory will only rase the bands profile and hopefully make others stand up and listen to the music, this is a million miles from the first album and its a good thing.Have a listen you may be very surprised. I wish them all the best it was a fantastic idea to put Doggie on I'm a celebrity and Harry on strictly to bring the group to a new audience, if there next album is of the standard of this then I hope they crack it and stay around for a long time.
