Album Review

The often difficult second album was made to look easy by McFly, the four lads from London who saw Busted, their main rivals for the affections of pre-teenage hearts, split up in 2005, leaving them the only guitar-based pop band in town, and McFly did not disappoint their army of fans with Wonderland. At the time of release, it already contained two number one singles, "I'll Be OK" and the Comic Relief charity hit "All About You," although the Carly Simon/James Taylor B-side (track two on the CD single) "You've Got a Friend" was not included. The same mixture of good, fun 1960s-influenced pop songs and midtempo ballads is here, as on the debut album Room on the 3rd Floor, the opening track, "I'll Be OK," being a good example of a boy band trying to sound as little like a boy band as possible with real instruments, mainly guitars that, if you really stretched your imagination, on the intro could be compared to the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again," although it only lasted about 15 seconds. The boys even felt confident enough to include a sitar on the song "Ultraviolet," which became their least successful single release to date. The turning point of the album came about half way through (on vinyl it would have been side two) with the "All About You" track, which opened with an orchestral piece and then continued throughout the song with a strummed acoustic guitar and even had a woodwind instrumental break. And of course, there was quite a memorable song in there as well. This theme was expanded even further on the two-part track "She Falls Asleep" — part one a dreamy instrumental heavy on the orchestral string section; part two a sophisticated ballad, quite dramatic in its production — and the album concluded as it began, with more guitar-led harmony pop with the songs "Nothing" and "Memory Lane." One might sneer, but Wonderland was a good album from an obviously talented group of young lads.

Customer Reviews

Amazing!

Amazing...and a brilliant 2nd album, this album show how the guys have mattured since their debut album 'Room on the third floor'. I love how some of the songs have incorperated string, such like in 'I wanna Hold you', and the Epic song that is 'She Falls Asleep'. So different to their old stuff, yet still amazing. I'm sure all old fans will enjoy this album as much as the last, and it will definately catch a wider audience! Welldone boys!

Amazing

This album is amazing...it’s a change from their last one its even better. This album shows how the lads song writing, voices, music and them selves has matured since their last album. Songs such as toms 'she falls asleep' its definitely different to any other of their pieces no guitars all Orchestra but its such an epic song. Yet it still has the Mcfly we all know and love as it shows in 'i wanna hold you'. This album would definitely please their old fans and bring new ones. Nice one lads!!

Wow!

Wow, this album is amazing! I am a big fan of McFly and I'm very impressed! I love how all the songs are different. 'She Falls Asleep' is so thoughtful and with really amazing lyrics and their new single 'I Wanna Hold You' is awesome. I can't wait for your next tour!

Biography

Formed: London, England

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Similar to fellow British pop act Busted, London-based McFly came together and quickly won over the youth masses with their boyish charm and lively tales of adolescence. However, while Busted shared commonalities with the punk-edged accessibility of acts like blink-182 and Simple Plan, McFly owed a bit more musically to bands like the Beach Boys. Naming themselves after Michael J. Fox's character from the Back to the Future series, the guys — Danny Jones (guitar/vocals), Tom Fletcher (guitar/vocals),...
