2005 McFly: I'll Be Ok

Harder edged than previous, McFly's latest has the spiky bop of a crossover indie hit that almost beats Busted at their own game. Almost, but not quite; as fun as it is, 'I'll Be Ok' follows too many dead ends in its race for the prize, throwing too many spare themes and loose ideas into the pot when one really good one would have done. Maybe that's its origins showing through - 'I'll Be Ok' is an assemblage of the 'best bits' of two earlier McFly songs welded together in a musical cut and shut. But with the joins not sealed with due care, 'Ill Be Ok' fun is rendered fun without being overly memorable.
