Music Spotlight: 'Midnight Memories' by One Direction



Okay guys, please bear with me. I don't know what has gotten into me this month but I've found myself obsessing over 5 guys who have absolutely no idea of my existence. I think this may have started with me reading 'After' and it has now escalated to this. Sometime last week, One Direction's new album was leaked online and I debated with myself on whether I should listen to it or just wait for it to be officially released. Naturally, in the state I was in, I had no self control and listened to the entire thing. Now that the album is actually out, I thought I'd make a post about it!

I have the 'ultimate' edition and it features 18 new tracks. In my opinion, this album really shows growth and maturity as opposed to their previous albums. You can tell they're integrating a new kind of sound to their music yet they're still keeping their signature sound that we all love. I'm terrible at reviewing music but I hope I'm making sense! This album also makes me appreciate the growth in Niall and Louis' voices. In the past, I sort of just bypassed their solos, but in this album, they proved themselves. The harmonies in this album...wow. I just want to give them a round of applause. It's hard to narrow down my favorite songs off of this album but my top three are 'Half A Heart', 'Don't Forget Where You Belong' and 'Better Than Words'.

I'm going to try to link the songs from YouTube so you can have a listen to them! Even if you're not a One Direction fan, I'd still recommend you give this album a chance, it might surprise you!
