If you like the band then it shows that u are not afraid to immerse yourself in this pop/rock where every song sounds eerily similar and the band does not have a drummer visible in the majority of it's videos. If you do not like the band then it shows that it is just not your thing and you prefer more 'traditional' forms of rock music. Neither one of these is a bad thing, they are just a difference of opinion and there is nothing wrong with that.
The problem with Busted is that they fit into no specific genre. Their generic instability lies in the contradiction between the bands set up and their image. They play their instruments and sing live like a rock band, however they dress in a similar fashion and, according to a few female friends of mine, are rather good looking chaps, this means that they are like a boy band. The band fall into neither category and it is this that makes their appeal so unique.
I have mentioned in the review title that I am posh. You may be wondering why I have mentioned this for an album review? It is because it is the posh side of me that finds Busted so appealing. I am from Guildford in Surrey, which is basically the poshest town in the poshest county in England, and it was here that Busted played their first ever gig. The band are all from middle class backgrounds and it is this that makes it very easy for me and my friends to relate to them. I enjoy listening to Busted because I see them as an image as well as a band.
So, if you like posh boys from England, then you will like Busted and all the catchy pop/rock songs that they have cultivated!
1.)What I Go To School For- Great song about a schoolboy crush on his teacher. Best line in the song "I fought my way to front of class, to get the best view of her ..."
2.)You Said No-also known as Crash and Burn, this song has a catchy beat, and funny lyrics.
3.)Britney-dedicated to pop Princess, Britney Spears. Lyrics include titles of popular Britney and *N Sync tunes- "You say that you're not a girl, I'll make you a woman."
4.)Losing You-Beautiful slow song, and Charlie's voice will make you melt!
5.)Year 3000-song about a trip in a time machine to the year 3000, and what life is like...living underwater with triple-breasted women!
6.)Psycho Girl-strange, but funny slow song about a psychotic girlfriend.
7.)All The Way-I'm sure many teenage boys can relate to this song about girls who aren't willing to go "all the way."
8.)Sleeping With The Light On-My favorite slow song on the album, beautiful lyrics and amazing acoustic guitar.
9.)Dawson's Geek-Poking fun at someone a little overly obsessed with Dawson's Creek.
10.)When Day Turns Into Night-another beautiful slow song.
11.)Everything I Knew-pretty upbeat song about life after love.
12.)Without You-great slow song, but the beginning a little freaky with just the sound of one of the guys breathing
13.)Interlude-not to sure the point of this song...just a 30 second guitar solo.
14.)Loser Kid-one of the best songs on the album, about life as a loser "No one took the time to know me, the kick me sign was always on me."
All in all, a great album, that you should DEFINITLY buy!!!
