Product Description

Product Description

Take Me Home is the second album from the five-piece former X Factor contestants following the success of debut Up All Night. It includes singles "Live While We're Young" and "Little Things".

BBC Review

X Factor producers do love a contrived ‘journey’ arc, don’t they? But whatever in-show narrative One Direction could’ve had, it’s post-show where things get interesting.

In less than two years, they’ve gone from the X Factor stage to the pencil cases of the nation to the Guinness World Records. So, amidst their ubiquity, second album Take Me Home almost serves as a reminder that music is their day job.

With Simon Cowell’s beady eye on the lucrative American market, the overall tone marries sun-kissed US skater-pop with British charm. Their now-familiar bouncy, boyish, lad-pop is the starting point of Take Me Home, one foot rooted in what they’re good at while they dip a toe elsewhere: slightly dancier (C’Mon, C’Mon); marginally quirkier (Heart Attack); vaguely rockier (Rock Me, obviously).

But in pursuit of the flavour of the moment/credibility/dollar signs (perhaps all three?), One Direction all but hand their identity over to Ed Sheeran wholesale on his two offerings as songwriter (Little Things and Over Again), his distinctiveness on an entirely separate plane to the rest of Take Me Home. Perhaps surprisingly, the 1D machine would chug along perfectly well without his input.

They know their fanbase, and they’re giving them what they want: every song prescribes a generous dose of the warm ‘n’ fuzzies, each lyric is precision-crafted to tell each fan that it’s intended for them and them alone. Even the song titles – Summer Love, Live While We’re Young, Last First Kiss – read like the names of Sweet Valley High novels.

But it works. Despite Take Me Home’s boardroom-defined objectives, the music itself is of a notable quality. Polished and dependable, despite its safety there are some show-stopping pop anthems present, with the instantaneous chorus of C’Mon C’Mon perhaps the best thing 1D have put their name to.

Whether they could sculpt another record from the same blueprints is unlikely, at least not without leaping feet-first into pure parody. But 1D have a strong platform from which to develop – perhaps the intention, as inevitably the ‘mature’ third album will follow.

For now, Take Me Home takes the One Direction brand, reinforces it nicely, and as far as their fans’ needs are concerned, ticks every single box.

After purchasing for my step-daughter on my wife's recommendation, I still don't like one direction.
Why it keeps finding it's way from my daughters cd player to my wife's car I'll never know, which means I have to endure the songs even more frequently (which I've since resolved by insisting on taking my car all the time) .
For a one direction fan, it's obviously a great choice whether they're 7 or 37,
But sadly not my personal preference.

As a 25 year old lad I feel like I'm out of the "target audience" for One Direction. But I just can't help but really love there music. It's very catchy and I really do enjoy singing along to it.

I also enjoy buying my music direct from Amazon as you get the CD. Plus the MP3 album too right away. Thanks Amazon :)

I don't love it - or them. But, my daughter does, and this CD was for her - Fortunately, she has a CD player in her bedroom, so I don't have to hear it. I'm sure my parents felt the same abut my Adam and The Ants LP records!

I'm surprised by the reviewers who think Up All Night is the stronger album. Take Me Home is better overall, even if it lacks a monster-smash like "What Makes You Beautiful". Let's look at each track:

1. Live While We're Young -- An attempt to relive the spotlight of "What Makes You Beautiful" and missing by a mile, yet still a powerful opener. The continual bursts and claps somehow manage to sound abrasive and smooth at once. 9/10.

2. Kiss You -- Like an over-used sex toy, this one makes you feel soiled in a purely delicious way. The fastest, catchiest -- and easily the most sly -- song of the album. 10/10.

3. Little Things -- Riding slow acoustics, this one showcases the solo talents of each band member with what can pass for class. 8/10.

4. C'mon C'mon -- Too electro for its own good, and lyrically banal. It's okay, but so "just there" you'd hardly miss it if it vanished. 6/10.

5. Last First Kiss -- This midtempo is a sure guilty pleasure, pouring out heaps of what can only be described as wish-fulfillment fantasies lending to self-abuse. 9/10.

6. Heart Attack -- With lyrics like "I can't stand dumb love songs", the band members prove they can laugh at themselves, and get high marks for that alone. Add to that a compulsively raging chorus, and you have a recipe for frequent replay. 9/10.

7. Rock Me -- No thanks, keep the steak out of my salad. These lads ain't queens. 4/10.

8. Change My Mind -- I'm not impressed by complaints about the schmaltz. This track is painfully beautiful, and the album's masterpiece. 10/10.

9. I Would -- Laced with callow humor and paced which frenetic rhythms, this one is surprisingly addictive and gives you license to romp over the playground of life without apology.

For some reason I actually thought this was a box set but infact it is what it says - a book.
Although the book is great I'm slightly disappointed that the cd does not come in a proper case & is just slotted in the cardboard insert just inside the book cover & did not come sealed - had I had known this I would have ordered the normal cd.
However a great cd & speedy delivery!

An okay album by average singers. Yeah they're popular, but only because girls get wet everytime they see them. No respectable adult should listen to this. (Although the song "Little Things" is lovely). Shhhh don't tell anyone I said that!
