I Think I'm Gonna Win This Time: The One Direction Discography Rate

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by ohnostalgia, Apr 1, 2016.

  1. By the way don't worry @iheartpoptarts, I'll also be here to represent the pure pop crowd (i.e., people with motherfucking taste). What Makes You Beautiful has my provisional 11, though that may end up going to another song that you may not like actually so if you don't I apologize in advance. Also rating One Thing and Tell Me a Lie high. (Edit: And Perfect when I get there.)

    What Makes You Beautiful has one of my fairest scores - a 1.

  4. This is a God test.
    What even. I understand not being crazy about it, but hating it? It's a fantastic power-pop song and the catchiest thing they've ever done.

    Take me away @iheartpoptarts.

    I hated it before I was even a fan of them. It was what kept me from checking their material until 2012. I can't stand it.

    Fireproof is my 11.

    I didn't send in scores before but I do want to give 'Nobody Compares' the 11 it deserves. It's just that albums 3-5 seem like they'll be a chore to sit through...

  7. Well at least you have a good 11 then.

    I don't hate it, but it's not even the best song on Up All Night, let alone 11 worthy. Giving that song an 11 just screams that you didn't give anything else a chance

    Also if @wackseed doesn't participate I will be forever offended.

  9. Since I made the Made in the A.M. thread, does that mean I'm responsible for @ohnostalgia? Slay a bit!

    I had a song I wanted to be my 11 but now I'm not so sure. I'm gonna have to adjust some scores because of the new sane rate rules. I can't wait for this.

    I have no idea why you'd want this notoriety, but sure.

  11. First, I said it's my provisional 11. Something else could still snag it. Off the top of my head, Perfect is a contender.

    Second, it is really an amazing song. I gave it a 10 in my X Factor Losers rate where it was against a lot of other really incredible songs like Once, My Wicked Heart, Stay, With Ur Love, Want U Back, Oath... from two of my favorite albums of all time. That's how highly I regard it.

    Third, it's not a matter of giving other material a chance. Beautiful is exactly the kind of song I like - I am giving their other songs a chance, and I'm sure I'll like a lot of the ones I don't know. But I know that the kind of song that sounds best to my ears is a power-pop/pure-pop anthem like Beautiful. Teen-pop is denigrated a lot, even here on Popjustice, but it's honestly what I like the best, and that's just as valid as liking any other genre.

  12. I'm also responsible for the Jessie J thread so I've contributed much worse.

    I also love that you're a 1D tumblr fandom refugee. I never participated much except for 1 blog I had at one point that lasted about 4 months but just observing made me regret my entire being. I left that website before the Zayn situation so I can't even imagine how much worse it got when it was already below trash can level.

  13. 'Fireproof' was what kept me from checking out their later material for a while.

    ...So I guess we're at war?

    I'm so glad you're here!

    (It's not my 11, but I think it's a perfectly deserving one!)

    Do you prefer Take Me Home or Made In The AM?
  15. Take Me Home!

    Oh, so we're cool! I can respect people liking What Makes You Beautiful as long as they don't think MITAM is superior to TMH.

  17. Where is that iconic Louis gif in the opening post?
  18. I love the Sugababes.

    I'm not against teen pop, just there is way better teen pop on Up All Night and actually way more on Take Me Home.
    We can get through this with the power of Stole My Heart and Kiss You. I know we can.
    You're lucky I typed his name. I considered posting [redacted].
  20. Ooh I'd love to participate in this! Four and Take Me Home are still regularly played during my drives.
    I might be alone in giving my 11 to Right Now and somehow managed to capture this while seeing it live.
