5 Best of the Bestdickiep | 30/10/2012 | See all dickiep's reviews (137)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer This is the second greatest hits collection, however it is far Superior than the first. This collection is sort of end of part one. What was interesting after reading Unsaid things the groups biography is the group disliked the album above the noise and felt it was just to pop, bearing that in mind only two tracks make it on this collection the excellent "shine a light" and "Party girl" which is disliked by the group according to the biography. McFly first came to notice with "five colours in her hair" a song i have to admit I never liked, it was not until "Obviously" that i took notice. The hits kept coming as did the number one singles and although McFly are more than singles band it is on the second disc on the deluxe version you get "No worries" a beautiful song, Lola with Busted and some great live tracks like "memory lane". Like all writes, McFly got better as they got older, lets be honest even the Beatles got better would you say Love me do was a classic lie hey Jude, I doubt it. The first track "love is easy" is very catchy and it's difficult to get the tune out of your head, however "do Watcha" played on the last tour is a rocker, and very much what McFly are about, the other new track is "Cherry cola". It's a shame that many people don't see beyond "all about you" McFly are so much more, listen to Falling in Love or on the second disc, POV (point of view) they are both very mature songs and show Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones to be excellent writers. People still refer to McFly as a boyband a term I hate as it is meant to describe a group of boys who sing, dance and have there songs given to them. McFly do everything themselves, just like other bands not tarnished with that tag and are more like Green day than say one direction, Jones is an awesome guitarist as is Tom Fletcher, although he always seems to put himself down, when he is still the backbone to the band, the vocals blend perfectly together with Dougie also supplying the occasional lead with Transylvania. The now famous rhythm section of Dougie Poynter Bass and Harry Judd drums complete a very solid unit. I have no idea if this collection changes peoples minds, but the new material premiered on the last tour does feel like a return to form and is more "radio- active" than above the noise, which is a good thing. There will always be doubters as they will always think of the fact the group was market ted like a boyband, however listen and you may be very surprised, no boyband ever sounded like McFly.
