Surely enough, it's a perfect presentation to those that may be listening to him for the very first time.

'Sign Of The Times' is a rock-influenced ballad that come full throttle with high soaring vocals and an emotional, climactic appeal that's definitely present. Bearing five minutes plus, the song builds grand and heavily: where the last minute of the song truly showcases Styles' vocal range at its best.
