Take Me Home
Label: Syco Music UK
1D may have aged in the year since its debut, but its music didn't. Album two doesn't deviate from the slightly naughty slumber party of Up All Night -- with an increased emphasis on the morning after. So while "Live While We're Young" and "Kiss You" work innuendos couched in tooth-aching malt-shop pop, the album then takes a turn for the sweetie pie, crooning about last first kisses and staying up all night -- forever. If almost 20-somethings singing about teen life to pre-teens feels ... theatrical, you won't mind when it sounds as good as hop-scotching bonus cut "Still the One."
