About this deal

The ‘ Year 3000’-esque ‘ Shipwrecked in Atlantis’ delivers another fantastical flight of fancy, while ‘ Race to Mars’ takes a look at the space race in a tribute to Elon Musk and Tesla, and once again taps into the band’s penchant for a pop culture reference or two in its lyrics. Nineties’ is one of the tracks which will claim a place alongside other Busted favourites such as ‘Year 3000’ and ‘Crashed The Wedding’. And that really does highlight how shallow and underdeveloped Half Way There is, to the point where even the most basic of pop-rock and pop-punk that at least endeavours to bring something to the table is exponentially more worthwhile than this. Since then, I feel they have all had success and Charlie has more than proved himself as a capable musician, gaining top 20 albums across multiple genres (Fightstar, solo-works).

That’s about it for me though so it’s interesting entering my first busted album with it being a comeback. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since. Please explain how All The Right Reasons by Nickelback (which was certified Diamond in the US and sold 10,000,000 copies) is a good album. As a side note – Radio could quite possibly be one of the best singles to come out in 2019 – fight me.But, not one without justification – the album begins with the anthemic Nineties that serves as a time capsule back to better times, reminiscing about everything from the Goonies to Oasis and Nirvana. Simpson adds, “It still has humorous elements and we’re still having a lot of fun, but we have some very poignant songs too.

Back in 2003, they went a whole album campaign as the only ones in the UK charts playing guitars and writing their own songs, and dressing like cool skate dudes from Venice Beach.During this trip, they also continued writing and began recording for their planned fourth studio album. James Bourne, Charlie Simpson and Matt Willis approached the project with a simple goal in mind: “How do we make the ultimate Busted album? To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

It’s packed with catchy melodies, the three members shine on vocals and the lyrics are both personal and clever. Inoffensive, cookie-cutter tunes like “Nostalgia”, “Reunion” and “Nineties” sound like sonic time capsules with nostalgic themes, and in all honesty, it’s done pretty well. The album thankfully doesn’t take too long to get through, and ends on a high with one of its funniest and worst written songs ‘it happens’ which tells the history of busted. Though this isn’t an easy listen, Body Void’s newest journey into the abyss yields a shrieking, industrial mutation of doom-metal that couldn’t fit into the blackness around them more perfectly.Of course, given that Busted have never been a powerhouse band in terms of innovation or technical songcraft (because why would they be?

Never really been a fan, but I’m sure it’s at least better than that song they did for that dogshit Thunderbirds movie.
