    One Direction are simply five pretty guys with a few decent songs and not much personality. Call them One Dimension.

    As a starting point for One Direction fan memorabilia, for which it appears there is limitless potential for the time being, this is a perfectly sized, and targeted, collection.

    If a tween-pop empire is what these boys are after, they're definitely headed in the right direction.

    Debut album Up All Night consists of 15 installments of inoffensive daytime radio pop.

    Up All Night is a well-crafted slice of pop you can pop bubbles to.

    This is horrible. It's probably the most cliché album I ever heard. They're nothing more than 5 Justin Bieber's and they will never get to the level of previous boys bands they're obviously copying like Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. This is just a mess. Full Review »

    I was unimpressed with this CD. I was told many positive things about it, though I heard some things about the band having a lack of anything interesting to offer. They were right. This group is basically a remake of the Jonas Brothers, mainly appealing to the female side of the music consuming industry. And that half usually has the most unoriginal, stereotypical music of the entire industry. This band has typical boy band stinkers that has limited appeal and most rely solely off of their teeny-bopping beats. But what they don't understand is that we're SICK of hearing it. Overall the album is a whimsical, pouty-voiced 3/10. Stick to picking up Barbies with limited talent and turning them into pop icons, Hollywood. Full Review »

    I don't want to seem jealous, but for me this band is the classical group of handsome boys that has success for the physical aspect and for "x factor". The album isn't bad as some albums from other artist like them, but i don't like the songs and i don't like them. ( sorry for my English ) Full Review »
