The album was recorded in the infamous Grouse Lodge recording studio in Westmeath, Ireland. The album's first song, We Are The Young, first featured as a demo B-side to the single Star Girl. This version is slightly different, with stronger piano riffs. Please Please contains obvious references to actress Lindsay Lohan, who drummer Harry Judd met on the set of Lohan's movie Just My Luck, in which McFly made an appearance. Lohan is not mentioned specifically, but the woman featured in the video for the song has green eyes, red hair, and is named Lindsay. The name tag on her nurse's uniform also says "Lindsay Allbright" – Lohan's character in Just My Luck was named "Ashley Allbright." The band's official position, as stated in the album notes, is that the song is not about Lohan.
