"What Makes You Beautiful": OK, this is admittedly catchy. The production sounds like it was made with keyboard presets, though. I also like the message, because women need to be reminded by men that they are beautiful. (Because how else will they know, duh?)
"Gotta Be You": The beginning sounds like The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony." I also don't understand the argument of why it's gotta be her, but maybe I'm missing some nuances.
"One Thing": Is this still the backing track from "What makes You Beautiful"? Shit, it's the third track and already repetitive. I'm in for a long road ahead. I also don't believe that they don't understand what that "one thing" they want is. P.S. it's sex.
"More Than This": Ooooh! A ballad. Wait, "when he lays you down"? This is for preteens, right? Are they talking about her dad? Either way it's gross. Also, not the ballad I thought it would be. Kind of disappointed, TBH.
"Up All Night": The beginning sounds like I'm getting on Space Mountain. Wait, you want to stay up all night, find a random girl and tell her she's the one? That is some seriously shady behavior, IMO. Plus, I'm too old to stay up all night so this song gets a thumbs down.
"I Wish": Even they sound over it in this song. Like, they wish they could just be normal dudes for five minutes instead of harmonizing the words, "I wish it was me."
"Tell Me A Lie": This song makes the dude she left you for sound super cool and makes you sound super desperate. If he's the reason that she's leaving, then you might be the problem, bub.
"Taken": I was really hoping that this would be about the Liam Neeson film of the same name, but alas it is not. However, it is about women who only like men in relationships. Who's this song for? Stalkers?
"I Want": First "I Wish," now "I Want." Which one is it? This has a plodding beat that encompasses the unreturned feeling of wanting that most of us experience at least once in life. You know, like in junior high.
"Everything About You": The beat is so forgettable and generic it might as well be called "Everything About You is Beige."
"Same Mistakes": This is the first song I could distinguish the voices of the different members. I will at this point try to name the members of the group: Harry Styles, Zane, Nigel, Kip, and Stewart. How many did I get right?
"Save You Tonight": Seriously, this song could be about Batman, for all I care. This song also has that same anthem-y, "let's all jump" chorus. I shall call these types of songs "jumpers," henceforth.
"Stole My Heart": This is something I imagine Russian teen girls listen to.
"Stand Up": Another jumper. They claim they won't leave until they've stolen "every piece of your heart," which is great and all but they also promise the moon, which is just plain impossible.
"Moments": OK, in all honesty this song sort of got me. It's like a first dance wedding song, and first dances always get me, so there. I hope the next album takes more chances musically.
