lids are too mainstream for Tom
I apologise in advance for any mistakes because I'm on my phone!
Right, it's really really reeeeaaalllyyy annoying me that people are saying mcfly have changed their style on their latest album for 'fame and money'
That's not the way I see it at all. If you listen to every single album they've brought out, you'll notice there's something different, something new about each of them. And that is what happened with this album; it's not their priorities that changed - it's their musical talent that has developed and advanced. The songs might be different styles, but when you listen to them, properly listen, you can hear the same old mcfly in there. So the songs aren't like 5 colours or that girl? That's because they've grown up - those songs are brilliant, obviously they are but now that they're older, their songs have a certain level of maturity in them. But they're still fun. And mcfly, in my opinion, did not bring out this album with the sole intention of making loads of money and becoming more famous. They brought it out because they love what they do, they love music and they wanted to share it with us. Personally, I'm proud that they have come this far, developed musically but still managed to hold on to that 'mcfly' sound, and I will always love them, no matter what.
I’ve never said that they are in for the fame and money. They’ve changed because they needed to change. And I’m ok with the change because I trust them. And I will never give up on them, no matter what.
They took a lot of risks with the new sound. And I respect that. I really like the album. It’s fresh and it’s different.
I understand what you’re trying to say. I can’t complain much because I listen to some mainstream artists also. But Party Girl was a shock to me. I didn’t expect that from McFly either. They took risks with the new album. Maybe it’s just an experiment. Who knows?
I remember Tom telling us to listen to the new songs with an open mind. So I did. I really like the album. It’s good but not as good as Radio:Active or Motion In The Ocean.
So, I guess you haven’t got a favourite song from Above The Noise, then? There are songs like I’ll Be Your Man, This Song, Foolish, Sunny Side of the Street, Hotel On A Hill, that are different and they sound like the old McFly. Maybe you can give them a listen, again? I don’t know…
Sadly, I’m not from England, I’m from a small country called Romania.
