Editorial Reviews

From the shores of the UK comes McFly, a young and exciting guitar band. In 2005 they had the UK's highest grossing arena tour and WON THE BRIT AWARD for Best Pop Act. McFly broke the Beatles record as the youngest band ever to debut number one on the UK album charts. Their debut album is 3X P L ATINUM, they've had FOUR No.1 S INGLES, cut a commercial with Simon Cowell and met the Queen. Heady stuff for 4 guys who are all of 19 years old. 20th Century Fox noticed the uproar and gave the band a major role in the new Lindsay Lohan film, Just My Luck. McFly play themselves as a young English band trying to make it in America and perform a number of songs throughout the movie. Just My Luck opens in theatres across America on May 12 with the new McFly album,also called Just My Luck in stores May 9.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancin' On The Kitchen Tile... May 17, 2006
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
What do you get when you cross The Beatles with The Beach Boys, and pepper them with influences from various rock acts throughout the three-and-a-half decades since? You get British pop/rock band McFly. While it's true that comparisons to those two landmark sixties groups have been doled out liberally over the years, very few groups have come this close to sounding like their direct musical descendants. This quartet of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones (both on lead vocals and guitars), Dougie Poynter (bass) and Harry Judd (drums) seem to possess an uncanny natural gift for the vocal harmony, the instrumental melody, and the skilled tunesmithery that won The (Original) Fab Four such a massive and ardent fan base.

The album kicks off with "I Wanna Hold You", a rollicking power-pop love song with a string section (and SCORCHING guitar solo!) thrown in for good measure. Next up is "I've Got You", which sandwiches a crunchy-guitar chorus between subdued verses, and perhaps owes itself more to bands like Blink-182 than The Beatles. Then the album shifts into a lower gear with a pair of buoyant mid-tempo ballads, "Obviously" and "Ultraviolet", which more readily show their impressive song-crafting skills. The good songs don't stop there; the enchanting slow ballad "All About You" and the infectiously clever sing-along "That Girl" (the latter of which brings to mind Huey Lewis and the News) are two of my favorites, followed by the melancholy "Unsaid Things" and the irresistibly optimistic "I'll Be OK". Trading off on lead vocal duties, Fletcher's airy, slightly nasal timbre (reminiscent of Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong) provides a perfect contrast to Jones' huskier, more rugged voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - The Best I've Heard In A LONG TIME! June 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm an American adult who has NEVER heard of McFly. I went to see Lindsay Lohan's movie "Just My Luck" and while the movie itself wasn't great, I really liked the guys who played the band McFly. I thought the songs were catchy and they were cute (I can say that, even if I'm older than them, right?) Anyway, I got home from the movie and went to Amazon to look them up and see if they were a real band - I ordered this CD that night and it's been in my car's CD player ever since! I LOVE the combination of melody/harmony with guitar (thank you for bringing back guitar solos!) - They're refreshing to me, it's been so long since I got excited by music - so I'm not a teen, but I do LOVE this band's music and can't wait to hear more from them! I TOTALLY recommend buying this CD if you love catchy, REAL music with good vocals. Great job, McFly! :o)

Or the Beach Boys??? Please. I agree, McFly (probably 100% named after the family name in the "Back To The Future" trilogy) are enjoyable and catchy, and their energy and exuberance makes them fun and likable, but that's it. These boys don't have the ART or uniqueness that places them in the same class as the Beatles and Beach Boys. If anything, they're closer to early Beatles and Beach Boys, IF those 2 forefathers never progressed any further than their original sound.

This record plays like a hits collection, with highlights from their 2 UK albums, 2004's "Room On The 3rd Floor" and 2005's "Wonderland", plus the new "Just My Luck" for the movie of the same name, all produced by UK legend Hugh Padgham, most famous for working with the Police and Genesis, & many others.

We'll see how the boys progress as a band and artists, but at times, their voices sound like a better boyband, like the Click Five, with harmonies just above cloying as on "Obviously", and musically, they're a bit like a better Blink 182, such as the UK #1 hit "Five Colours In Her Hair", but "Ultraviolet" is pretty damn good tune.

We'll see how they go, as McFly still have potential, but right now, they don't stand above similar pop/punk bands right now, but like I said, we'll see, and I do like them, as they are fun and have no pretense or ego.

There ya go, an honest review, and I too am old enough to be their dad.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best bands EVER May 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
McFly....just a mention of the band name and it sends me into a giddy frenzy.

I've been a fan of McFly over here in america for the past 2 years or so, and they are SO FREAKIN' COOL!!! McFly is funny, cool, awesome, amazing, and did i mention AWESOME!?!?

and they're REALLY REALLY hot.

but right,

the CD.

Even if you have the other two albums, this one is worth getting because a lot of the songs are re-records, and it's cool to hear how different they sound.

it's a great CD for people new to the band, and a great addition to any McFly collection.

Danny, Dougie, Harry and Tom, KEEP ROCKING!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied May 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
My friends had talked about McFly for quite some time. I decided to go out and buy this CD. Man, was I in for a treat!

McFly is a great sounding band. They bring a mix of The Beatles and The Beach Boys. Their songs make you want to get up and dance. I purchased this on the day it came out and have yet to be able to take it out! All of their songs are so catchy.

So... Buy this CD! You won't be disappointed! Plus, they're starting to get big! Be the first out of your friends to know of McFly!
