Loved the Live Lounge performance. This may not be the biggest hit of the year, but for me the song is so grand, it sounds bigger than anything else, this deserves to be cemented as an "Angels", a "With Or Without You" or a "Knockin On Heavens Door", its really as good as those IMO.

He was channeling Queen much better than Queen could ever dream of.

He's a wannabe rockstar just like Robbie Williams was during his debut solo album. History repeating.

What an insult to Queen. He sounds nothing like Queen.

Like I could give an F about insulting Queen - they’re absolute s**t. :lol: Sonically it’s a subdued Queen song (since he has that 70s rock theme going on) without the obnoxious vocal.

This song is so try hard imo. It sounds nothing like Queen or Bowie or even Prince's "Purple Rain" so I don't get the comparisons. Yeah he tried to sound more "edgy" with this song than the other boys from One Direction (which is not hard to do) but this just sounds forced imo.

More like David Bowie and Pink Floyd in my opinion.

He/his team should have release this now instead of March. :x

This doesn't sound forced to me tbh. At least not remarkably more forced than any other artist who releases something and then says they were inspired by "insert artist". I mean obvs he was going for a certain kind of sound but it worked imo.

The great thing about Harry's career is that he didn't conform to the mainstream to be successful. Justin and Beyoncé are those frontmen of groups who had to be radio-ready with their albums to get that success, Harry didn't have to be with famous producers to make that solo transition. :cry: :cry: :cry:

^ Again your post is nonsense. He worked heavily with Jeff Bhasker on this album who has coincidentally also worked with Beyoncé and many other mainstream artists.

I loved this song though all because as Shane said above it just sounds ‘Big’ it arrived stadium ready. I also enjoyed the album.

Well Harry did something different that fits the current times, he started his own label imprint, so he has creative freedom, he is for a big part his own 'boss'. When JT and Bey debuted it would have been a no-go to do that. Had Harry debuted during the early 00s, he also would have conformed to the mainstream.
