Motion In The Ocean's the 3rd album released by UK band McFly . So far , they have released 2 albums prior to this latest release namely Room On The 3rd Floor & Wonderland .
I gave everything a listen & I really like it & I can possibly say that it's their best record they released to date & I personally think that it's a notch better than their previous 2nd CD Wonderland which was fab as well.
McFly kick things off with We Are The Young which's awesome , a very uptempo & kicking track which was followed by their UK #1 singles of Star Girl & Please Please.
Funny enough , Hui Li likes Please Please the moment she 1st listened to it . For me , erm.. I'm still trying to get over the lyrics which was quite porn-y in that sense.
Followed by possibly my personal fave on the album Sorry's Not Good Enough & then the strangely titled Bubble Wrap . I was -_-"' when I saw the title cos I was thinking what the... but luckily the song's really good aside from the title.
Track 6's Transylvania & it's another fab track , I hope it will be released as the 3rd single in which the chorus parts are sung by Dougie ! Usually Dougie does backing vocals but in this song you can specifically hear him sing & his voice's not bad.
Transylvania was written by him so he has a rather big say in the song & he also sings on Nothing which's a track that can be found in their previous CD Wonderland.
Lonely reminds me of Obviously but even better . In fact the moment the guitar intro started for Lonely , it really sounded like Obviously initally but yeah it's a nice song , the lyrics are so aww .
Ballads are in the mix as well , in the form of Little Joanna , Home Is Where The Heart Is . Little Joanna's so cute in fact Tom wrote it for his girlfriend who's Italian dammit
Initally when I saw Friday Night , I thought please don't tell me it's a cover of The Click Five's song but nah it's not .
The 1 track that didn't grab me immediately was Walk In The Sun . I realised that the more you listen to it , the more better it sounds .
The last track on Motion In The Ocean's a really good rendition of Queen's Don't Stop Me Now in which that song & Please Please were a double A side single when it was released & yes both of them went to no1 in the UK single chart.
That so called secret hidden track's nothing merely a track called Slient's A Scary Sound . I don't have it in CD form but only the live rendition & it's not too bad.
Overall , McFly are great , they have matured since their 2003 debut Room On The 3rd Floor & wouldn't be surprised if Motion In The Ocean will give them their 3rd UK #1 album & yes they deserved it .
Hopefully this album will start making waves in Asia soon cos I mean it's about time people find out that there're more to life than just Obviously , All About You & I've Got You .
