McFly: Radio:Active

Sound — 10
Well, amazing or what? Mcfly have blasted back with their 4th studio album, A.K.A Radio:Active! Imagine five coulers in her hair with distorted guitars and decent lyrics. The album is ground breaking, 10/10. Listen to Falling in love, to hear a Bruce Springstein sort of mellow love song, or Going through the motions, for a fast get up and go rocker. This album is the first release from Mcfly's own Super records, after leaving their old contract with Island records. Recorded in Australia, this album is rocky, poppy and number oney. Well worth a good ten pounds.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics have been thought about and well planned. The songs are a lot more meaner, and people will be able to relate to them. "Lies", the undeniable truth hits hard, or "One for the radio", where you shouldn't pretend to love those secret naughty loves. The lyrics have certianly gone up 10 levles of maturity, and if you didn't know it was Mcfly, you would never guess!

Overall Impression — 10
This album is what Room on the 3rd floor, Wonderland and Motion in the ocean should have been! This is the album Mcfly have wantd to make and the album that fans have waited so long to hear. A potential record breaker, this trul is the new Mcfly, possibly at their hightest standerd of level. If you don't hear or buy it, you are seriously loosing out, if you lik the older stuff or not.

    I think that music shouldn't be put into genres any more tbh. Music isn't like it used to be where it used to have a definate pop or rock or rap sound, most music is a mix of everything. I don't see why nobody likes pop music as well. I mean popular stands for popular, not pop-cheesy-crap. Pop has got a bad name because in the 90s when pop was really popular, the popular music back then was cheesiness. McFly are pop because they're catchy. -rant over-
