Four – the amount of tears I cry every second per song on this delightful album
I can feel my cheeks squish and my eyes well up because of the pure love I have for some silly little beans that are commonly known as One Direction
This is going to be so informal and hopefully i’ll redeem myself some day but I cant help but rave when they’ve gave me the best days of my life since the tender age of 14
You may think its pathetic or childish or any other synonym you wanna give me but I couldn’t care less because all I’m sure of is that you couldn’t possibly use the same words to describe this new album – releasing on the 17th
Now you may be asking how I can possibly write an album review (well a part of one) since the official release date hasn’t been hit yet, but these lovely boys and their albeit ok management system have devised a release plan – one a day until 5 before the official date
Starting with Ready To Run;
You can tell its gonna be mellow, something you’ll put on as the start of your ‘long car journey’ playlist. Theres obvious distinction from verse to verse as all boys voices are showcased in a way they haven’t in previous albums, yet as soon as the chorus comes the tempo picks up and you really can’t help but sing along, belting it out as strong as Harry himself is. Zayn hits gorgeous notes in the breakdown which you unsuccessfully try and match and as harry flows in you can feel the atmosphere you know will be prevalent at the concerts at that exact moment in time
Where Do Broken Hearts Go
The start of Where Do Broken Hearts Go is so different from the previous song’s beginning with Niall showcasing his vocal ability, it feels like a build up, like you know something massive is about to happen. This i can imagine as the concert opener, with the perfect opportunity for an entire stadium to be clapping along accompanied by a scream of the song’s title. This is the party song that should belong in another decade, something you’ll hear on the radio and want to dance along to in the supermarket. Its so amazingly upbeat and Louis’ strong vocals towards the end give the song such an edge you know is going to go down massively when sung live.
With the common knowledge that Ed Sheeran wrote this song along with his previous tours headliner Passenger, you know its going to be something that’ll pull at your heart strings and have you reaching for a, or multiple, tissues. The intro is so delicate, a beautiful guitar melody picked up by Zayn’s soft voice singing about hearts and souls. The lyrics make me hold my hand to my chest as in pain, yearning for someone to be singing this directly to me. Its so beautiful, its like you’re looking into an open heart. The song picks up as comes the second verse but still has a delicacy to it, all boys showcasing gorgeous vocal ability and putting feeling into everything. What really hits you is the most angelic vocals of Louis during the bridge ‘i have loved you since we were 18, long before we both thought the same thing, to be loved and to be in love…’. The whole song is undeniably beautiful and i think anyone would have a hard time not loving it, or picking it as their first dance soundtrack..
As mushy as this whole thing has been I honestly cant contain my excitement for the upcoming early released and the rest of the new album (that I can’t wait to share my views on). When the UK tickets come out for their new On The Run Tour you can bet your ass ill be one of the first to tweet my excitement about getting a ticket.
