Am on first listen dissappointed by this. I actually thought they had potential to be a good vocal harmony boyband but this as a first offering is boring and quite youth orientated but they'll need to reach a mass audience if they want to stay around. If this is what they come up with then they should have just put out forever young.

edit: Has grown on me but still think they need a strong track that showcases their vocals.

editx2:Ok so actually now think this is a great track and very catchy. Best British single at the Brits 2012. 1st UK top 10. 78 weeks in the UK top 100. 153,965 sold while #1. Their first UK and Irish #1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. US#4. 940,000 copies sold in the UK.

Fifth biggest selling boyband single ever in the UK.

Very fun song, a previous review had me tagging it as generic, but they do add something unexpected but I dont quite know what, im expecting a huge hit in australia.

While the beginning reminds me of Grease's Summer Nights, the song isn't too bad. Yes it is slightly more generic then I hoped but at least the voices don;t sound obviously digitally altered. Should be a big hit in the UK where they usually embrace the Busted/McFly sound for their BoyBand. And it does have a positive messae and isn't about picking up a slut in a club while drunk, so that's an extra bonus. Definitely a grower.
*****
Perhaps I've just missed the boyband phase of the late '90s, but dammit I love this!
****
It's fun to like this in a semi-ironic way, at this point I can't even work out which way that leans. I mean, this is a dumb song, lyrically it has some terrible implications, but it is what it is. I'll let them have this one 3.7

This is a fun summer song, it took me a little while to warm to as I find it hard to get past the immature boy band quality of the artist but once I got past this, I found it to be a solid and enjoyable pop song. Their vocals are average, but they don't pretend that they can sing (like they aren't trynna pull out the big long runs or high notes), and in that way I like it.

I expected it to be dreadful, but to my surprise this is a solid pop track, maybe even more than that.

I try to avoid hearing this wherever I can.

Poor!
*****
Not too bad, but I feel that they could at least put more harmony into it, it sounds to me it's just a liam and harry band!

Btw, beats cool as well.
****
Even thought they seem a bit gay, this song is really good!

Sounds nice on the first listen.

EDIT: 4* -> 5*

This is incredibly catchy. It may be generic, but there is a little something in there that makes it great!
*****
Their individual voices are very weak and a little annoying but as a group they sound very nice together. Good track nonetheless and a strong debut that has successfully catapulted them to instant success across the world. There are some messy moments though and it doesn't feel like it flows as smooth as it should be. It's this messiness that also makes it sound overproduced.

One of the better boyband songs floating around.

kill me now. This song is like how some of you feel about Like A G6. Argh I hate this!

Slightly embarrassed to say it, but I love this track! The harmonies are great on that big chorus, the production is absolutely spot on and it is full of charm. Harmless fun.
**
Stupid generic marketing strategy.
***
I've given it time and it has not grown on me really. It isn't bad at all, but I prefer boy-band material closer to the style of N'Sync or Backstreet Boys to this track.
*
Crappy generic boy band song
*
What the fuck is that?
*
Can't stand it.
*
I hate this crap. It's so bad I can't even hear the whole song.
*
Dålig låt
**
this is bad

Oh god!

The only song from One Direction I will ever consider decent!
***
Massively overrated but not too bad. One Thing is much better though
**
It's kind of catchy, and that's it.

1 star

Generic track that gets old after 1 listen. 2.5 - 3.

Yes, it's a One Direction song aimed at teenage girls. I still liked it.
***
Pass!
Even though I can tolerate it now, it is only just. I heard this after I heard all the buzz about 1D, one thinks how didn't they win X-Factor in the UK.

I strangely found myself having this stuck in my head today, and decided to delete my previous review of this because it doesn't deserve 3* at all.

When this came out, I had no idea that One Direction would become a worldwide-famous boyband who would become the next Westlife and send everything of theirs to #1 upon release. So on first listen back in 2011 (it doesn't feel that old actually) I liked it. When "One Thing" came out I also liked that. Then I realised they were a boyband and had become the next "Justin Bieber" (I had made that comparison then because he was a similar artist I hated - or at least until "Believe").

Nowadays it's really good for some reason. It's a very strong debut from them and I guess I irrationally questioned the quality of this three years ago. Anyway it's better than "One Thing" which is similarly quite good. Sadly their later singles weren't as good, hopefully 5 Seconds of Summer won't repeat this band's meh-ness as they continue their possibly endless career. 4.8*.
