    One Direction vs the nineties!

    OK, I've been obsessing over Zayn for a few days now, which lead me to listen to a few One Direction songs.

    Is it just me, or are most of their songs rubbish compared to boy band songs from the nineties, such as Backstreet Boys, Boyzone, Westlife... etc!

    I realize it's not their fault. They have awesome voices and performance capabilities. It's probably that they have bad producers/songwriters/mixing engineers.

    Not a great fan of Backstreet Boys so don't know much of there stuff.

    Boyzone and Westlife only really had a couple of great songs, same stable as One Direction as well.

    I'm a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I'd say One Direction is almost as good.

    Those are the only two boy bands I really like.

    If I may ask what music do you listen to? Favorite genere?

    Perhaps my taste in music changed, since I listen mostly to instrumental/soundtracks nowadays.

    OK, perhaps it's just me then. So far...

    One Direction has the same think going for them now as BSB did in the 90s, except One Direction allow themselves to sell out. The problem with BSB was they didn't want to sell out, they wanted to make music, but in the pop world selling out is part of it. Their manager ended up embezzling money from them and created N'Sync, which was just a money making product. BSB tried to sell out later, but no one cared anymore.

    On the plus side BSB has a new album coming out this year, so you might like that.

    I listen mainly to whatevers in the pop charts, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tinie Tempah.

    Like a couple of One Direction songs, wouldn't buy the cd though.

    One Direction is okay. I like Chasing the Sun by The Wanted better. As far as BSB and N'Sync go, they both had some good songs, but I tended to like Britney and Christina more as far as pop goes.

    Re: One Direction vs the nineties!

    It's difficult to compare One Direction with someone like The Backstreet Boys (my favourite band ever but I'll try not to be too biased) because music has changed so much over recent years. We followed One Direction on X-Factor so they built up a fanbase without having to really work at it, their image was kind of promoted on the show. Backstreet Boys were famous in Europe long before America and spent two, maybe three, years before they ever made any kind of impact in the States. That right there puts a different effort into the music, from what I see of One Direction they always come across like they deserve fame and that they are where they are supposed to be (don't hate me for this, it's just the impression I get of them). Backstreet Boys, granted I've watched a lot more interviews, always seemed to be very thankful for the work they'd put in and were prepared to sing acapella at the drop of a hat.

    If I had to compare them to a boyband they're definitely a lot more like N*sync (who I love too) but here's where work ethic and music changing comes into it. When N*sync hit the scene they had to struggle and really work their tails off with synchronised dance routines and huge great big spectacular tours that included some really high end stuff. Ultimately they were working a lot. Now if you compare an N*Sync performance with a One Direction performance then you will see they come across as a bit lazy. But that's not their fault, that's how music has changed. No one wants synchronised dancing anymore (some argue if anyone ever wanted) so One Direction are free to do whatever they want on stage and when they do have choreography it's not really breaking the bank for anything too strenuous.

    It pains me to say that they're probably like Westlife (who I also love) in that at the moment they're having their fun, doing what they want and looking like a "group of lads" but when they get older, if they're still doing music, they'll realise they can't keep doing that sort of stuff and they'll end up sitting on stools singing or just wandering around stage trying to find someone in the audience to sing their watered down love songs too.

    (Apologies if I got carried away with this, I kind of wrote an essay on this for University so was quite excited when I saw the topic)

    In terms of sustaining actual popularity AND hit songs, 1D isn't coming close to BSB or Nsync. The only song I ever hear played on the radio by One Direction is still "What Makes You Beautiful" & that was released how long ago...? None of their other singles are getting nearly as much play, whereas the 90's boy bands had multiple hits in heavy rotation from the get-go of their first album. Their videos from 2012 have gotten a ton of views, but actual interest and sales aren't matching up.

    No need to apologize. This is exactly the sort of feedback I was looking for. And Backstreet boys are my favorite band too But let me get what you said correctly. Are you saying Backstreet Boys worked harder and produced better music?

    I definitely think that Backstreet Boys worked harder than One Direction have done. Both bands were manufactured but Backstreet Boys didn't have a hugely famous reality tv show to work off the back off. I don't think it's One Directions fault and I absolutely don't deny the guys their success, but it's a world today where it's a lot easier to be famous. You can be famous for almost anything these days and a lot of people are famous for no reason, reality TV tends to do that to you. I mean One Direction basically began their career on the X-Factor and already had a huge fanbase, they had to in order to have come third, but Backstreet Boys didn't have this. Backstreet Boys worked from a time where no one knew their name, they were put together from an ad in a newspaper and, like I said, no one in America paid any attention to them for two or three years of their early career. One Direction haven't had this struggle, they went straight in with huge success and pretty much on the release of their first single/album they were popular all over the world.

    Now I know some people will argue that X-Factor is paying your dues and working hard week after week and yeah, it's difficult, but Backstreet Boys were performing every week to tiny crowds just to get some sort of recognition, they didn't have millions of people watching them every week to catapult their career at an alarming rate.

    Music is subjective, nothing is better than anything else. But, for me anyway, One Direction always seem a bit detached from their music. It's not like they really have much input on it (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here) whereas Backstreet Boys argued contracts, co-wrote songs and came up with ideas for music videos from a very early stage.

    I'll tell you something that has really changed my opinion of One Direction over the years (I used to love them), Twitter. The way I've seen One Direction (and The Wanted to be honest) behave on Twitter is absolutely disgusting. A lot of young celebs use Twitter all the time but the way they come across as if they have a right to be famous and they have a right to say what they want to say. One Direction should be role models because their fanbase is so young, but instead they are just throwing profanities at other bands (not saying The Wanted aren't to blame too) at each other on a public forum where everyone can see it.

    This is, of course, just how I see One Direction and a lot of it isn't their fault, a lot of it is the media changing around them and them all being quite young. Backstreet Boys were all different ages and there is nine years between Kevin and Nick which I think helped everyone in that band grow up a bit quicker and there was a different kind of bond, they weren't friends but they were brothers. (Yeah cheesy I know).

    That, again, was really helpful! I guess I should go through Zayn's twitter account, see what profanities he said, hoping not to find any.

    I think one direction is good. But I still prefer 90's music. Some of the awesomest bands are formed during that time. i am still listening to a lot of the bands that era.

    These days music can be complimented by awesome or overly high budget music videos.
    But 90's does have a lot of one hit wonders. I wonder what are most of those bands doing now.

    I don't think it's their fault. In my opinion, their managers/producers/songwriters aren't as good.

    Re: One Direction vs the nineties!

    One Direction is ok to me. They got some lookers but I don't know that much about their music except for their overplayed single. I've always liked the Backstreet Boys for their more organic roots (Kevin and Brian being cousins) and that they partly formed the group themselves, as opposed to Simon Cowell deciding on the lineup for One Direction. BSB also always seemed to be more about the music and their success and longevity is entering the territory of legendary (as far as pop music/boy bands are concerned). While I don't listen to as much pop these days, I do enjoy the pop music of the 90s more (and that involves other 90s boy banders...NSync, 98 degrees, O-Town). I guess it also helps that more of those songs were adult contemporary (especially BSB songs). Some real classics from that late 90s/early 2000s time period. I feel the nostalgia whenever I go back to some of those songs.
