Default Harry Styles

Any new fans of his solo act?

You can never know what to expect from a member of a boyband, but his debut album is very strong. A couple of fillers here and there, but overall it's one of the best albums of 2017 so far in my book. You probably heard the single (Sign Of The Times), but this song (Kiwi) is my favorite, a real rocker.

It looks like he will be the Justin Timberlake/Robbie Williams of One Direction.

I'm sure there are going to be snobs on this board that will dismiss him automatically, because he's pop or that's the stuff that girls like (which is quite an ironic logic to have for Bon Jovi fan if you ask me), but I'm sure a few others would enjoy it if given a listen.

I think Sign Of The Times is fantastic... He must have some great writers

I like Sign of the Times but I haven't listened to the rest of the album yet.

I've been listening to this album lately and i must say he really left an impression on me as a young, solo artist. There is an old school vibe in a couple of rock songs and the whole album is quite different from anything that is popular these days.

I also read somewhere that he wrote the lyrics with the rest of the band helping out for the music.

I've never had a problem with him or 1D. Good luck to him.

This album was album of the year for me. Never ever thought I'd say that as I wasn't a fan of 1D at all and never really listened to his vocals. I moved house in April and on the first night, we finally sat down at 10ish and Graham Norton was on. I moaned when I seen Harry Styles was the artist performing. And then he belted out 'Sign Of The Times' & he sounded incredible. It genuinely did blow me away.

I then had to listen to the album and really love it. Was listening to it yesterday infact. His voice is superb.

Kiwi is such a good uptempo 'rock' song. I also love the style to 'Ever Since New York' - His delivery on that along with the melody really makes me love the song. Can't help but love the way 'Only Angel' kicks in too!

So many great songs on the album. If you haven't listened to it already, then give it a go.

Also, watch 'Kiwi' from X Factor performance. He was like a young Mick Jagger!

I'm seeing him in Vancouver in July and I'm so stoked. The album was easily in my top 10 albums of 2017 (which is impressive in a way because I easily listened to 20-25 really great albums that came out last year). He's got such an attractive charisma and comedy around him. He really is a rockstar.

It’s great to see his transition from an awkward, almost shy, teenager on stage at the X-factor to the performer he is today.

His was easily my favourite album this past year. It was good to read that he had a hand in the writing of the songs on the album.

Yeah, I think he had a hand in every song actually.
