Not as good as their first two albums unfortunately :( Its good to see them trying to do something different but I don't really like their new sound. I understand that they're trying to incorporate more "Rock" into their music but I don't see what was wrong with their past Pop/Rock efforts like "Rock Me", which was an awesome song. I also would have liked to see them singing more ballads like "More Than This", "They Don't Know About Us" or "Irresistable". I feel as though "Midnight Memories" is missing songs like this. Plus, I think it would have been better for the group to continue collaborating with Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk on this album. They've produced (in my opinion) One Direction's best songs like "What Makes You Beautiful", "One Thing" and "Live While We're Young", so I was disappointed to see that these two producers did not have much input on this album :(

Wens draussen Arschkalt ist, und man so Hobbylos ist wie ich, dann hört man sich immer neue Musik an, scheiss egal welche :P
Diesesmal wars 1D's neues Album...im grossen und ganzen gefällt es mir nicht schlecht...ich muss sagen, sie sind Erwachsener geworden mit dem Sound, ausser mit "Best Song Ever", das für mich eher zu den schwächeren Tracks gehört!
Meine Albumfavoriten sind "Story Of My Life" und "Right Now"...
Habe lange darüber nachgedacht ob ich ne abgerundete 3* oder ne aufgerundete 4* geben soll...hab mich für zweiteres Entschieden, da ich nicht immer so hart sein will und alles niedermezeln will...dafür haben wir jaa die Haters...die bald sicherlich nachrücken werden mit ihren Reviews...

Well, if there was any doubt about it (which there shouldn't be), One Direction fever has hit Australia, proven through their 3rd consecutive number-one album here and a successful string of sell-out concerts.

Having heard a few singles from the album (weren't almost all of the songs released as singles and reached #1 on iTunes at one point or another?), I decided to give this album a listen through, not expecting much, as almost every song I've heard from them haven't deviated from an exact formula.

What I got hear was exactly the same stuff I've heard from them in the past. There is nothing particularly unique about their music, lyrics and the audience they are obviously targeting, but if it keeps selling, I'm sure that One Direction and their cronies won't mind.

There's nothing particularly awful about the album, with no songs showing any identity of its own, but it never descends into the downright awfulness that has plagued previous teen artists, as groups or as solo performers. Its steady in its generic-ness, as if aware of the fact that every song on the album will be release as a single at some point, every song being radio-friendly.

It is because of this that I won't be doing a "my highlights of the album were..." for this album as there wasn't really anything that stood out or attacked me with its brilliance.

Anyway, with the One Direction juggernaut rolling on and other teen artists dropping off (namely Justin Bieber), I wouldn't be surprised if One Direction got signed on for further albums past their current contract and that all those albums would make number-one as well.

This album will probably spend a significant time in the album charts, and while I didn't hate the album and only found it to be perpetually average, I'd rather see more albums with their own sui generis identity flow through the charts than having this continuing to take up chart space like "Up All Night" did.

Sorry Directioners.

Let me just say this, this album has a fair chunk of filler on the deluxe 18-track version, but there actually isn't any *bad* songs per-se on the entire tracklist.

In fact, songs 1 through to 9 are very strong. Highlights of the album are 'Strong', 'Happily' and 'Diana'. It's a 4 star for now, maybe 5 later.
******
Love it!!! *-*

Simon C's little bitches do it again... release a load of manufactured dribble....this is one act I wish that would just "F" off....

My own children hate this crap!!! So god knows who's buying this shit....brainwashed fools....hahaha

Yeah I know...a tad evil...but seriously these guys are lame too the core...
****
Well it wasn't all bad for me but those last four/five tracks were quite dreary and boring and really let the album down. I think someone must have told them they need to start maturing their image and thus they must put guitars into every song, even songs that don't need it. Nothing against guitars, it's just that it's dumb when you got guitars alongside a computer generated beat for three songs in a row. Nonetheless, I didn't hate this, and the singles (particularly Story Of My Life and You & I) were actually quite good. Good effort. 3.7/6
****
More maturity on this album but also good pop rock tracks from them also.
