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

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

    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.

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

    Good vocal tone, and far better than anything most boy bands are putting out. Also creating their own sound rather than copying the R&B-esqueGood vocal tone, and far better than anything most boy bands are putting out.

    I Dont Feel Like One Direction Is Really Showing There Real Potential With This Album.. Vocally They Can Be So Much Better Because All Of ThemI Dont Feel Like One Direction Is Really Showing There Real Potential With This Album.. Vocally They Can Be So Much Better Because All Of Them Have Great Voices.. They Would Sound So Much Better If They Sang Somthing Other Than Pop 100% Of The Time.. But Overall Good Debut Album...

    One Direction's Up All Night fails utterly as an album. The ridiculous hit single that launched them to stardom "What Makes You Beautiful" isOne Direction's Up All Night fails utterly as an album. The ridiculous hit single that launched them to stardom "What Makes You Beautiful" is a rather clunky song. The drum transition towards the chorus is off-tempo, the repetition that goes "do-o-or" and "en-ou-ou-ough" seem tacked on and the lyrics aren't even thought out properly.

    "I don't know why... you're being shy..."

    Cheap rhyme that's bland and uncreative. What's even worse is that One Direction didn't even write any of their songs. That tells me two things. One: Rami Yacoub, Carl Falk, Savan Kotecha suck at writing songs, and Two: One Direction can't even be to write their songs and share their personal spin on anything. Some creativity they have...

    "One Thing" is one bad thing too many. The song's tone rips off any other song on their album.

    'Taken" is already an unappealing title but the entire chorus sounds tacked on with uninspired lyrics. It just sounds like a bunch of words stuck together mashed with a non-catchy tune.

    Are those 13 year-old+ fan girls blind and deaf? They're not at all that attractive nor are they worth the hype. They are a bunch of X-Factor drop-outs that X-Factor mashed together to make some cheap money-making product by manipulating the idiocy of some (not all) young girls.

    The world may end because this album is a sign of that...
