Last Month, One Direction released their latest album entitled “Made in the AM.”
Honestly, it was a rather refreshing album. I wasn’t a big fan of their last two album, mainly due to the fact it seemed like it was the Liam, Harry, and Zayn show with guest appearances by Niall and Louis. It felt more like a group album because everyone is heard and is showcased where it didn’t feel like one overpowered the others. It was also more pop, like how “Up All Night” and “Take Me Home.” Don’t get me wrong “Four” and “Midnight Memories” wasn’t bad albums, it just they felt….let’s be real: It felt like they were trying to Zayn in the group to be slightly less poppy.
“Perfect” is one of my favorites of the album, mainly due to it’s tongue and cheek knock at T-Swizzle, also it’s rather catchy. Sidenote: if you haven’t heard the stripped version of “Perfect,” you are missing out because it’s the shiz. Their ode to hookups, “Temporary Fix,” is another favorite of mine…it’s just a fun song.
Lyrically, it’s one of their strongest albums. 1D’s self written songs haven always been great but this album’s lyrics take it to another level
The only complaint I have with the album is that the placement of the songs is slightly off. Like it could be a catchy pop song then 4 ballads then back to a catchy pop song with not really a transition song (like a catchy pop ballad that isn’t too fast nor too slow). That is just me being picky too.
I highly recommend this album, especially if you are new to 1D, because it’s the perfect album to go on a “hiatus” on.
