Mar 8, 2013This album is amazing! Usually when it comes to music I don't love an entire album. But I have to say I absolutely adore every single song on this album. So much so that I had to actually illegally download the bonus tracks that weren't available in my country!! I can honestly listen to every track on repeat for hours. Each song brings something different to the table, and the album is complete with catchy dance tunes, slower ballads, some softer singer-songwriter vibe songs, and even some edgier rocky ones. One plus of this album over Up All Night is that there is definitely a more even split of solos on the tracks. You get to hear a lot more of each member, and each member's voice also perfectly suits the section they sing. They're voices are also much stronger on this album. Another plus is that the boys actually have a lot of writing credits themselves on this album. They were a lot more involved with the process and their input shows a noticeable difference. Ed Sheeran also wrote two songs for this album, rather than just one like on Up All Night. Some stand-out tracks for me are: They Don't Know About Us, Little Things, Kiss You, I Would, Over Again, and Irresistible. I genuinely love this entire album and would recommend it to anyone. Even people I know that don't like One Direction have grudgingly admitted to me that they actually like certain songs on the album, and I've caught them singing along in their rooms. Give it a chance!… Expand
Nov 19, 2013What we see here is very simple to understand: pretty and talented boys singing incredibly romantic love and seducing songs.
Take Me Home, second studio album from English-Irish boy band One Direction, is a very entertaining album. Clearly, not much artistic due to a few songs being actually written by any of the boys, but that does not influence much in a bad way. It sounds right. You can't really tell which songs were or weren't written by them. Most lyrics are fine enough to get to your heart. There's no way you won't fall in love with these pretty guys after actually listening to this. Specially Change My Mind, Nobody Compares, Last First Kiss, Loved You First and They Don't Know About Us.
If romantic lyrics aren't your main thing, you can just close your eyes and listen to these very beautiful voices we've got here. Not only do they have pretty singing abilities, but they also have 5 distinct and magical voices that, together, sound just right.
This is not just pretty boys we're talking about. It's good music, definitely!… Expand
Nov 17, 2012This album is an album of two halves - the mediocre first half and the horrendously dull second half. Did they really think it would be a good idea to put most of the uptempo songs in the first half? It comes across as a bit full on. Towards the end of the album I had to resist myself from pressing stop. Every single song sounds samey and average... We've heard it all before. Take Me Home features displays very little - if any - artistic growth, and fails to live up to its predecessor.… Expand
