One Direction – Take Me Home

One Direction (this is aimed at you folks out there over 21 who might not be familiar with this latest boy band) is a band of young lads from the U.K. who competed in the U.K. version of The X Factor. Their songs “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Gotta Be You” were huge hits earlier this year and now fans in North America have another full album of new music to love. Take Me Home has a nice mixture of ballads and up tempo tracks. Liam, Niall, Harry, Zayn, and Louis have been smart enough to align themselves with well known songwriters and producers that have constructed many a hit pop song over their careers. They also know where their fan base lies (young girls from 6-18) and play to them. “Live While We’re Young” has continued their run of hits and there are a couple more tracks that I can see being overplayed on your local Top 40 radio stations.  Basically what I’m saying is prepare yourself to have these guys and their songs all over the radio for a good long while.
