Rating one direction albums🤩🎵

You probably knew this was coming…

*ahem* here I am, reviewing albums from a decade ago. Yep.

That’s not how you start a post

Hii oreo! (Thought I’d address you in person..?🤣)

I’ve been wanting to do this post for so long, literally! This has been a lost post idea of mine and I’m so happy I found it again😂💕

Today I’ll be rambling, fangirling, and rating the one direction albums. 🥳

(these are completely honest views)

Okay, so first up we have

Up all night

I think this was released during the era of their video diaries?😂 I LOVEEEE all the songs here, except for “Taken” – I don’t know why but I just don’t really like it.. 🙃 The first track of the album, what makes you beautiful, I probably have heard it more than a hundred times now, literally. But it never gets old💕😆

They didn’t do a lot of the song writing here, so the lyrics aren’t great.

Favourite songs: Gotta be You, One thing, More than this, Same mistakes

Underrated songs on the album you need to listen to: Same mistakes, Tell me a lie, Everything about you

A lot of people don’t even know these songs exist, and they’re one of the greatest songs that I love, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven’t already 😉

overall, I would give this album a 3.5/5

Take me Home

ahHhhHhhhhh this album is…… A.M.A.Z.A.Y.N

This album has upbeat songs and music videos from this album are probably my favourite ones like – Live while we’re young, Kiss you, Little Things… I also love summer love from this album, it’s such a beautiful song. And moments.

And rock me, it’s such a vibe. I used to listen to it a lottt.

Favourite songs: Summer Love, I would, Little things, Heart attack

I would give this album a solid 4/5

Midnight Memories

This album has a lot of great songs. I wish this had more music videos, there are only 3. some of my absolute favourite songs are from this album, like Something Great, Happily, Don’t forget where you belong, Strong.

The songwriting here is INCREDIBLE. Just wait till you hear FOUR.

(ahh i haven’t listened to those in so long it makes me want to have a one direction marathon xD)

But don’t i have one like every other day-

Songs I recommend listening to: Right now, Through the Dark, Half a Heart

I would give it a 4.3/5




No joke, half of the songs here a lot of people don’t know they exist. I feel like this is the second most underrated album of 1D, (after Made In The AM) but a few songs here still have a lot of hype. I remember listening to Girl Almighty over and over again last summer..xD

Clouds from this album is an absolute masterpiece, and so is once in a lifetime. Those songs hold a special place in my heart forever.💗

Favourite songs: 18, Girl Almighty, Fireproof, Night changes


I give this album a 4.8/5

Made in the AM

no zayn here *cries*

This is my second favourite album! This is also SO underrated, I don’t know why people don’t like it, like it’s AWESOME. But I’ll be honest, this era of one direction wasn’t really my favourite compared to the other ones.

The first track, Hey Angel – IS INCREDIBLE. it seriously deserves so much more. it has great lyrics, and the harmonies in this song is P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N (“Olivia” is a song my best friend and I love vibing to, it’s kind of like an inside joke 🤣)

Long way down is also such a beautifully written song. also temporary fix is so frickin good like- Louis’ high note in end of the day deserves more appreciation.

Favourite music video: History

Favourite songs: What a Feeling, Walking in the wind, If I could fly, Hey Angel, Infinity, temporary fix

This album gets a 4.9/5

Rating the albums

  1. FOUR

  1. I know right… 1D songs are amazing! I haven’t listened to all their albums but my favorite songs by them are Best Song Ever, Change My Mind, Gotta Be You, Half A Heart, More Than This, Once In A Lifetime, Same Mistakes, They Don’t Know About Us, and Through The Dark. I’m just not a directioner because I like to listen to the bands who are active, I hope they get reunited one day, it would be awesome right?

  2. Yesss it’s nice to see someone fangirling over them as much as I do 😂 I can’t pick one favourite album so Midnight memories, Four and Made in the A.M will have to tie because they’re all great. I agree, Four is soooo underrated, it literally has so many good songs like 18 (lvoe of my life 😭), girl almighty and where do broken hearts go. But also Made in the A.M is amazing because it has like Olivia, what a feeling and if I could fly. Okay I should stop before I write an entire essay. In conclusion: I miss 1D.

    1. YESS finally someone!🤣💕
      I love reading long comments haha
      For real though! Little things, don’t forget where you belong and One thing literally have my heart. Don’t forget where you belong holds a special place in my heart 😍
      I also really like AM but I wish they didn’t include a curse word in the song 🤣
      Nuu, I love long comments! You could literally write an essay and I’d still read every word of it😆😜💙
      Ahh sameee 🥺

      1. Honestly same tho 😆 lol those are all great songs and yep I agree about the AM thing hahah. They have some great bridges though, like the Hey Angel bridge is literally addictive and I don’t know why 🤩

  4. 1D and me….we haven’t met properly yet. But I will save this post, so that it’ll be useful when I actually wanna listen to them.


  5. You know, another blogger I know also thinks “Same Mistakes” is an underrated track, but I never got into it, sorry. ‘Midnight Memories’ is the last 1D album I bought because I gave up boybands around my freshmen year of high school. I’ve grown to love them again, but I’m in no rush to buy the last two albums because I don’t play 1D often. I haven’t listened to ‘Four’ yet, but ‘Made in the A.M.’ is really good (“Infinity,” “History,” “Drag Me Down,” “If I Could Fly,” “A.M.”). I kind of miss Louis’ red pants, suspenders, and stripes because once he ditched that innocent boy look, he became a hot bad boy that everybody wanted (or maybe that was just me lol).

      1. Ah I see. I just got the regular CD for ‘Up All Night,’ but I got the books with the bonus tracks, so those are cool to have. If I can find a cheap price, I’ll try to get the books for the last two albums as well.

        I’m so glad you can relate to that lol.

        Oh nice! The ‘Take Me Home’ era was good, that’s about when I first got into the band (it was around the end of the ‘Up All Night’ era to that time’). I also like the ‘Midnight Memories’ era too, despite the boys’ change in their style (I don’t do well with change lol).

  6. I don’t really listen to One Direction, but I do remember one time in the car with my friend her mom blasted the music and we just danced like crazy on our way to the library. It was fun, and I recognized some of the songs, so yeah, that’s my One Direction experience. 😂
