Album Review

After placing third in the 2010 season of Britain's The X Factor, five-member boy band One Direction inked a record deal with mega-exec/TV personality Simon Cowell and released their debut album, 2011's Up All Night. A global sensation, the album garnered several hit singles and sold millions of copies worldwide. It also faired pretty well with critics, who appreciated the band's mix of melodic songcraft and catchy, dance-oriented material that, while slickly produced, avoided the commercial cynicism and adult contemporary posturing of some of their '80s and '90s forebears. Rather than mess with a good thing, One Direction stick with this formula on the band's sophomore effort, 2012's Take Me Home. Once again working largely with Sweden's Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, and Savan Kotecha, who produced Up All Night, One Direction deliver another immediately catchy mix of dancey pop that maximizes the group's shared lead-vocal approach and peppy, upbeat image. This album highlights even more than their previous one how much One Direction's mix of punchy guitars over snappy beats, handclaps, and bright synthesizers has in common with the positive, fun-loving tone of '70s bubblegum pop, as well as more contemporary bands like the Jonas Brothers and perennial guilty pleasure Hanson. Also added to the mix this time around are two songs ("Little Things" and "Over Again") co-written by British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran, whose intimate folk-R&B aesthetic lends an air of maturity to One Direction's admittedly squeaky-fresh sound. The boys of One Direction also nab a few co-writing credits here, as does McFly's Tom Fletcher, whose contribution "I Would," a kind of in-spirit sequel to his Up All Night contribution "I Want," stands out as a considerably smart and infectious cut. Ultimately, tracks like the frenetically hyper "Kiss You" and the soundtrack-ready "Back for You" will, as with the rest of Take Me Home, certainly appeal to the group's rabid teen followers, and might even end up on their parents' playlist, too. [The Deluxe Yearbook Edition contains four extra tracks and an exclusive booklet with personal pictures of the band and interviews.]

Customer Reviews

Even better than the first!

As a slighlty older fan of One Direction, I thought I'd give a more helpful review. As much as I love the first album and still do, I think this album is even better. The upbeat songs are better written with more of an edge to them and the slower songs seem more personal (as the boys played a bigger part in songwriting).

I would definitely recommend buying the whole album but if your just looking at buying the singles then the 3 upbeat songs I suggest you buy are: Heart Attack, Kiss You and Back For You (definitely future singles).
For slower, more romantic songs I recommend Last First Kiss, They Don't Know About Us and Summer Love. (There's also Over Again, written by Ed Sheeran but it sounds like it SHOULD be sung by Ed Sheeran and to me sounds a bit like they are trying too hard to sound like him)

Overall, it's a great album and I definitely recommend buying it. It's definitey worth spending the extra few $ for the bonus singles & added extras on the Yearkbook Edition. Enjoy fellow Directioners!
