    Thirteen years on, that's still who Busted are, just three grown-up lads supplying a soundtrack to a night out on the town, even if their fans are now just as likely to be picking their kids up that night as hitting the clubs.

    Overall it’s a semi-successful sonic rebirth that, in the shape of On What You’re On, features the best Daft Punk single since One More Time.

    If the question is whether they're moving Busted forwards, then the answer is a resounding, robotic, synth-laden yes. [Dec 2016, p.105]

    Though it would have been nice to feel a greater sense of ownership, it’s a solid enough new chapter for a group who always kept it light, so why change all that much now?

    Not the same old busted, more mature - 13 years later - can you really be surprised?

I really like this album, personal favourite tracks are; 'on what your on', 'those days are gone' - (hugely underrated in my opinion), and easy.

    This album should be getting more praise, it doesn't help the dramatic change in style and may have cost them some fans, but people need to get used to the change. I think it sounds fantastic, a huge range of sound with each song.
