Four - One Direction
So basically, here comes an extremely fangirl post that you'll probably judge me for. And well I couldn't think of a blog title (once again wow emily) so I used some very funny song lyrics from the very thing I wish to talk about now.
Today, the 17th of November, the brand new album by One Direction called 'Four' was released and holy fudgecakes I cannot start to describe my feelings right now.
After falling in love with the boys in 2010 on the X-Factor and to see them now with 4 amazing albums makes me so freaking proud of them. And somehow the release of 'Midnight Memories' was about a year ago now and it feels like yesterday. And don't get me started on the release of 'Take Me Home' and 'Up All Night' now that's hard-core hit-me-where-it-hurts feels.
I don't honestly care if you don't like them because of their first album being to 'poppy' or because they're awful (when you're fucking wrong but whatever) but this album just highlights their talents. The co-writing and writing of most songs with the addition of two masterpieces by Ed Sheeran (18 and Act My Age) and a few solely by their writers (Girl Almighty and Once In A Lifetime) knocks the dig at them that they don't write their own music and songs. The new album has such a distinct and amazing sound, combining pop, rock and R&B which creates an album full of intimacy, craziness and brilliance (not forgetting the catchy, guitar driven and exciting beats added alongside some mellow melodies.)
So instead of babbling on, I'm going to do a quick review of each of the songs with maybe a sentence reviewing it then a general review at the end (and probably some advertising oh wells.)
2) Ready To Run - A resemblance to a country style song, yet again a catchy tune with some adorable lyrics and high notes beautiful enough to make me cry.
"Four" is available on iTunes for £10.99 (Deluxe - with 4 extra songs) or £8.99 (Normal)
It is also available on Amazon, Play and other music stores as well as the official 'One Direction' website for £12.99 - Deluxe (plus P&P) and £9.99 (plus P&P) with pre-order bonus of a wristband.
And to be honest I've probably left something out but honestly there's a lot of places and numbers and I'm too emotional to find them all.
