Hey mate, thanks for the heads up. I knew nothing of this release and thought the chances of Charlie Simpson getting back with these guys was about as likely as Slash and Duff getting back together with Axl... oh, wait. I guess that explains it.

 

Anyway, I got to spin it tonight and theres some great stuff on here. I think 'Without it' was my favourite tune? I think. 'Kids with computers' was good too. It's just such an unexpected album.

 

As for the sound, yeah, it's a different one, hey? I wondered the entire time I listened how they settled on this sound. It's kinda like a retro 80's sound at times. I was just putting together the original Busted sound, Son of Dork, Fightstar, McBusted and Charlie Simpson's solo work all together, and basically, none of it has hinted towards something like this at all. I have never heard the 3rd dude's solo stuff (and not for lack of trying) but maybe he is a big influence? I don't know. I kind of expected it to be more of a band project since the 2 guys I do know about formed pop punk / hard rock bands straight after Busted. But then Simpson's solo stuff is mostly acoustic (and awful) so who knows.

 

Anyway, I really never saw this coming and it's a cool surprise. An album I could really see growing on me very well. It's definitely one that demands more than one listen.

Jeez this one's pleasant on the ears. Like I said above, huge grower. No doubt at all that this is one of the finest songs of the year to me. I absolutely love this thing;

Yep superb song.

 

Been playing the album a lot lately, and that song twice as much. One of my absolute faves of the year.

Holy shit! I've been waiting to get to this, and I finally did, today. Yeah, not at all what I was anticipating, but really good, nonetheless.

Wait until it grows on you with every single listen... and it will. I'd never have picked in a million years that Busted, of all bands, would create an album with depth... but they sure have done it here. 'Without it' will definitely contend for my song of the year, and 'New York' is another massive favourite of mine. Really good album.

Had no idea at all about this release!! Love everything about this CD. 'Without it' is one of the most catchiest songs I have heard in a long time. Thanks guys!
