    On Made in the A.M. the group takes advantage of its nothing-to-lose position with a handful of cuts that feel even loosey-goosier than usual.

    1D’s swan song is hopelessly neither here nor there, appropriate to the drinking-age attention spans of an act whose solo careers beckon.

    The four lads were never going to bow out with experimental jazz-fusion, and this fifth LP sees them sweep between imitation indie and synthpop on stadium-ready and sweetly vacuous form.

    Instead of making a One Direction farewell album, they made a Take That comeback album.

    Made In The AM doesn’t really change anything for One Direction; it's simply another slick set of pop songs designed to strike a chord with their teenage fanbase and win over a few older fans along the way.

    Made in the A.M. is much the same, rootless and vague even when it lands on a clear style, like the Coldplay-esque “Infinity,” or “Never Enough,” a wacky number with intense a cappella gimmickry and exuberant mid-1980s drums and horns that recall, of all things, Huey Lewis and the News.... The music is too banal to support exceptional singing.

Their sound has really changed and their lyrics are so beautifully written. These boys aren't "bubblegum pop" anymore and they have totally proved that with this album. People should definitely have a listen. Full Review »

Todas las canciones suenan a lo que han venido haciendo desde que salieron de TXF UK. Honestamente no sé como sus fans no se cansan de escuchar más de lo mismo durante todo estos años. Monótono.
