I survived 3 spins and was pleasantly surprised. It’s pretty cohesive and there are a couple of lovely ideas. Good Guy is my current fave because of the Cher sample. It’s quite a long album though and everything kind of blends together halfway through.

This album is good! I still think it will be a hit on streaming at least.

Yeah I think he is over.

Also, is there a reason this is in pop? Isn't this album like 90% R&B?

^Tbh I think the album contains both genres (Pop & R&B) pretty equally. It's actually Poppier compared to his debut, but that's just me.

I was put off by the title but it’s one of my favourites

Not massively impressed with the album after first listen. It’s too long and not as good as his debut, lots of filler. Shame how badly this has done though - Zayn definitely has the best output of the 1D boys

Imagine the pressure now for Liam Payne! :lol: :lol: :lol: Though it's not hard to top the performance of this abysmal album, no one can say that the One Direction fans are still there to support the solo albums. :oops: :oops: :oops:

What pressure? His EP hardly did anything, so did most of his solo singles beside For You and Strip That Down, so i doubt anyone expects him to have a big selling album

^Exactly. Liam Payne is like, he's on Jason Derulo/Flo Rida-level of artistry. If they're doing good on the charts, good for them! If they don't, well it's okay cause nobody cares. :lol:

You guys are too harsh on him, I actually love the album and been playing it nonstop! It is kinda samey, but still very good until the interlude, then it becomes much more diverse. I love Natural, common, I don't mind, sour diesel, scripted, fresh air, entertainer, rainberry, fingers and too much. The only ones I don't like are if I got you and no candle no light

Obsessed with "There You Are" and "Common" at the moment!

THERE YOU AAAAARE THERE YOU AAAAAREEEEE

My ideal tracklist:
1. There You Are
2. Let Me
3. Fingers
4. If I Got You
5. Imprint
6. Too Much (feat. Timbaland)
7. Entertainer
8. Rainberry
9. Common
10. Satisfaction
11. Dusk Till Dawn
12. I Don't Mind

If it's the official tracklist it would've been a very solid album!
