They're looking VERY hot tonight on UK X Factor. I thought Niall looked very nice.
Just watched them on the UK X-Factor, first time i've seen them since they were on the show as contestants, they're actually rather good, apart from the one with the quiff who can't sing.
Attachment 895663 here's one for u all
The album is pretty much what one would expect from the group. Its formulaic but well executed. Even most of the songs one would call “filler” are generally quality and not throwaways. I feel that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts which was one of my problems with their first outing. I actually respect that they don't feel the need to pander to the hipsters out there by having a rap track, a dance track, and thank god there is no no veer towards R&B radio. Just pop...which is as it should be. The album is meant to be fun, and it is. That is not to say that it does not have issues. Some of the songs sound a bit too similar in style to the singles from “Up All Night” making them a bit redundant, and Little Things is a sellout and artistic flop if I have ever seen one. Still, they don't try to apologize for being what they are, which is as it should be.
The track on the album that is probably the most similar to the style/vibe of their hits on “Up All Night”. Its a solid pop anthem but I feel it lacks the something extra that made “You Don't Know Your Beautiful” a massive radio hit. Still a solid, fun song, that I can enjoy if I am in the right mood. The song captures the persona of the band very well and delivers what the fans expect.
Nice fast paced ditty with good rhythm. Supposedly this will be the next single and thats probably a good thing because, while its not groundbreaking by any means, it is a different style than their previous singles. Lighthearted and really plays to their base without coming of as pandering.
Speaking of pandering.....hi Little Things! First off this song is 100% pander. No way to get around that. It's lyrics are super uncomfortable and essentially are just taking the “What Make's You Beautiful” theme way to far. The song only exists because they wanted a super slow song that even the less uh....vocally adept....members of the band could sound good on solo. No one would ever actually want someone to sing this to them. Even if you move beyond the lyrics its just not a well put together song to begin with.
Nice song. Its a very archetypal ....nothing surprising here to be found. Its a solid attempy but it doesn't cause any emotion from me one way or another. Still, no major complaints to be had. I do think other songs on the album do a better job of what this one is attempting.
Mid tempo track that is pretty much exactly what the title implies. Its very obvious that this is going to be a fangirl staple for a long, long time. Would not be at all surprised if this end up as a single if their management does not want to mess with the formula. I personally don't find the song to be all that catchy so meh.
Reminds me of an Avril Lavigne track, especially at the start. Really nothing special about this song in my humble opinion. Very typical.
Blatantly inspired by “We Will Rock You” by Queen, but it is well executed. Fun song that isn't too “pandery” and no filler. I don't think this has much of a chance of becoming a single, but I think it is a very nice change-up in the middle of the album. I enjoy the song quite a bit. Also it's a showcase of the thinly veiled sexual innuendo that the band is slowly getting known for. This helps it have a broader appeal I think.
Another ballad in a similar vein to “Little Things”. Its a much better song though as it is has far less pander. Still......I see this song as mostly filler. Itt does pick up a bit at the end and I do enjoy it now and again.
Filler, but GOOD filler. Its very catchy and fast paced. This one has more pander than the average track and it is very, very obviously and blatantly appealing to school age girls. The lack of wiggle room with the lyrics makes it harder for the song to appeal to a larger base, but its not bad enough that I feel like complaining about it too much. Still a nice track.
The lyrics are a bit...all over the place and random. The song does get moving fairly quickly though so it doesn't bother me as much as it could. Of the three ballads that fill the same niche in the album.....this is by far the best. Nice heartfelt song with lyrics that lend themselves to a wide range of interpretations which broadens its appeal. I like it. It has a charm to it that Little Things lacks. It is very easy to tell who is singing, and their different voices actually improve the song (poor Louis).
This song is back to the original formula. Another song I don't have a hard time imagining on the first album. Filler. Still its a solid song.
One of those songs you swear you have heard before because its a very familiar sound. Still its a well executed song that I really can enjoy, and I think it is accessible to a broad audience. I REALLY liked it when I first heard it, but my enthusiasm has cooled a bit since then. Still, I have no major concerns.
Another song I could swear I have heard before.....however, I don't really care in this case. I really like the song as a well executed album ender. I love this type of track and can tell I will be listening to it for a very long time. Warm and fuzzy is how I would describe it.
I like the song. Sometimes the lyrics sound a little bit forced so there are fillers during the verse. Also another very familiar rhythm. Still its fun and fast paced with a catchy chorus. Solid if shallow.
Journey? I guess there is something to be said for just being blatant when copying another songs sound. I really can't get past that like I can with Rock Me. Meh.
The opening had my expectations low...... then the moment the song starts to pick up its amazing in my opinion. This is a song I will be listening to for a long time with its nice swing. I could totally see myself dancing on a beach to this song. It has just the right amount of pandering to make the song appealing without being uncomfortable/condescending. I like this type of song in general rhythm and I won't apologize for that. Easily my favorite song on the album along with Over Again.
A different rhythm than any of the other songs on the album. Solid song but not one of my favorites.

ugh sorry...graphics turned out a bit larger than expected
Hmmm. 1D in 3D. Nope, can't think of anything better than that, other than 1D themselves.
Did anyone else see the brief shot today on the Ellen Show where one of the guys (maybe Liam) actually grabbed Harry's ass? It was near the end of their first song when the camara was showing the guys from behind. They were all singing and walking forward in a line and just as they stopped, the guy to Harry's left grabbed his ass. The camara shot changed to showing them from the front and Harry was doing the solo at the end of the song. You couldn't see anything from that angle because the boys were all standing close together.
We've seen this before from the guys so it's no big deal. They have proven they are very comfortable with themselves and with grabbing each other ass. Just thought it was kinda funny to see it done at their Ellen Show Concert.
Attachment 897363 Any Chance you're talking about this Gym? Then yes that is indeed Liam.
Niall has amazing eyes. I wonder if any of them will come out as gay, it's as if everyone is straight these days.
Sinestro....that's it! I knew I saw Liam grab Harry's ass. I'm sure Harry loved it. It seems the boys really like messing around together. I love how open they are about it too.
Actually I'd love to be in three-way with Liam and Harry. That would be one hot and sweaty pile of sexy boy flesh.
I would be absolutely shocked if it was Niall or Liam that came out as gay. As this thread seems to lean more towards Louis, Harry and Zayn as gay, I think we should start to debate as to why Niall or Liam could be the gay ones....who wants to go first lol...
Where is Sokker when you need her....
Zayn can't be gay even if he was (It is difficult to be gay in a Muslim household)
Louis plays too much with his sexuality (see Robbie Williams), if he didn't want to come across as gay he would have acted the opposite (see Liam), he also had a long term girlfriend.
Niall could be gay, he is a bit shy and we do not have too many info of previous relationships with girls.
Liam could be gay, he act too straight (Maybe because he is), and his relationships seem fake (unlike Harry's)
In fact I believe Liam and Niall fuck each other, Liam top obviously
Happy now? :D
Zayn - And? He'd just not tell his family he was. (not that I think he is)
Louis - Well, he acts it, but some straight men are effeminate.
Niall - Strikes me as he's "Meh! not all that bothered."
Liam - Doubtful.
VERY hot thread :)
this pic is from Wednesday night in NYC. they fill the Macy's balloons Wednesday night for the parade. i had to share it...and add a caption...
CAPTION: So is this why he's called the "Amazing Spiderman" now...???
Thanks for the new pics! Seems like we even got some new Larry. Louis and Harry look damn fine too! :)
All I see is girls finding excuse why they can't date this guys besides from the fact that its prob cause they never would instead of them actually being all gay.
I mean honestly you guys harp on about like its your religion. Louis has said it annoyed him and now he's blown up twice on twitter but instead of you all going "hhmm maybe we're wrong?" It's no hey it's management MORE conspiracy! And it'll will eventually lead 1D to break up whether its true or not.
You know what? If Louis is so pissed off about the gay rumors he should just stop looking at Harry while insinuating blowjobs. He should stop with the sexual gay innuendos if it bothers him so fucking much, but no.. he doesn't. WHY?!? And I have read all about his girlfriend, and I'm still convinced she's fake. He doesn't know when they started dating or how they started dating. He tweets her "love you" while he's asleep on a plane.. they hardly ever kiss and they hold hands all awkwardly. Whenever they go out it's always publicly.. always shopping or starbucks. Then there's all the publicity stunts and photo ops and stupidity and her blatantly lying about how and when they met. Back in september he said they had been going out for a year, and now in november, two months later, it's apparently their anniversary yet again. LOL. He was called out on his lie, which is why he was throwing a tantrum. He is getting more and more pissed because people are not idiots and can see through his lies.
And btw.. bearding has been happening for a long time. It's not something new. It has existed in the music industry, and will probably continue to exist. It's so funny that people are so quick to label everything "conspiracy" yet have no idea what they're talking about. If you actually knew about the industry you'd know that it's quite likely that he'd get a fake girlfriend.. other closeted men have done it in the past. And we're talking about Modest here.. the same company that basically lost all of its important clients because of mismanagement. They were sued by a couple of musicians too. Yet you think they're incapable of convincing Louis to get a fake girlfriend? LOL. There's a reason they were dropped from TXF. They're assholes and they mistreat their clients. You also need to remember he's not doing this for himself, but also for the band. In his mind he probably thinks he's protecting them too. Plus it's so funny that you say we refuse to admit where wrong.. well, you refuse to look past anything. You believe everything you read. How is that any better? I don't ship Larry. I don't think they're real. I do think they're both bi/gay, but I don't think they're in a secret relationship like most larry shippers do. I however do think Louis is gay and has a fake girlfriend. His fake girlfriend is to cover his sexuality. The proof is there if you know where to look.
And btw.. I'm pretty sure Harry is gay.. he constantly uses gender neutral pronouns, half of his friends are gay, he wears equality t-shirts and goes to gay bars.. he changes lyrics from "her" to "him". Need I go on?
This gif has been driving me nuts for days.
Now it taunts me too Waffle. :p
They are such teases....
Just fuck already!:gogirl:
Oh lord, thank u so much Wafflecakes. My 2 favorite members of Wand Erection oozing sexual tension in a single gif. I'm good for years with that one alone.
That is a very hot gif....damn
I've heard rumors that Harry used to have a crush on Niall.. don't know if it's true, but they sure are cute together! :D Their bromance name is Narry btw :P
Wonder if he moved to Niall because Louis has become too much Drama.
he is *|* here and he is about to cum:mrgreen:
Nothing could be sexier than seeing Zayn Malik in white undies, his armpit exposed:=D:
Harry- very fluid (meaning he will bang or make out with whomever) with his sexuality.
Louis- probably closeted (possibly bi).
Liam- totally straight.
I wouldn't be surprised if Harry or Louis were with both guys and girls.
Liam comes off to me as being as straight as can be. The most straight of the group. haha
I think all five of them are totally hot and handsome.....
but I really like Liam the best.:-)
I loved his look on X Factor...and his personality because he felt mature for his age.
It has all gone downhill since then.
^fuck yeah! Precisely
Oh Harry you naughty boy! :p *|*
are those real? lmfao
Which one(s) do you like sokker? I can't remember if you mentioned it before.
