One Direction has just released their new album "Take Me Home" and let me say... I was only a casual fan before this came out, meaning I liked their songs but didn't care much otherwise. However, this album has really made me a fan! The more I listen to their songs, the more it reminds me of the ~old boy bands~ aka BSB, N'Sync, etc.

The first song I listened to was "They Don't Know About Us" instant love and I mean, instant. This is what a boyband all about. The catchy tune, the harmonizing, sweet piano intro, their incredible voices, the lovey lyrics, etc. Pure boyband goodness right there. Definitely my favourite on the album.

Some of my other favourites include: Kiss You, Change My Mind, Little Things, Back For you, Irresistible (Bonus track), Rock Me and Summer Love. Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent album where I'm able to listen to the whole album and not feel the urge to skip to the next track, but those are just some of my absolute favourites.

When Little Things came out, I appreciated the acoustic guitar and ballad feel, but for some reason, didn't adore the song as much. However, after I watched a few live performances and listening to it more, I fell in love! The harmonizing is what got me. Incredible.

Right now, I'm head over heels in love with Irresistible and I'm wondering how it didn't make it to the main tracklist. It kind of also gives me a R&Bish feel. I'm not sure if it's the beat, but nonetheless a very lovely song.

The album has already reached #1 and #2 in Canada. Excellent work, boys! Go listen to the album if you haven't and even if you're not a fan.

And some shameless self promotion. I did a cover on the acoustic guitar on their song Little Things. I would really appreciate if you checked it out & let me know what you think. Thanks!
