Harry Styles – Harry Styles

Harry was always the 1D member with a wild glint in his eye, exhibited in his many tattoo’s that hinted at a grittier side than his boy band membership HarryStyles-albumcovermight allow.  That’s What Makes You Beautiful is actually a brilliant pop song but his new solo album is not quite pop, having a more indie-rock sound.  I am surprised how much I am liking this album.  Thankfully Sign of the Times is not a Prince cover but it is a pretty good song. Some have slated Sweet Creature for sounding too much like McCartney’s Blackbird, but I am sure there are other acoustic guitar songs that do too. The album kind of tails off a bit towards the end for me but after a few listens it’s a pretty good debut, although I could have done without the hotel room imagery. Thanks for that, Harry!

Standout track : Carolina , but Only Angel is great too!
