Harry Styles Album Review

You guys, I have waited way to long for this album to come out. I’M SHOOK (I might say that a lot), But here is my (honest) opinion on each song and at the end I’ll give my overall opinion on the album.

(These are all just my opinions! We all are all allowed our own)

Here we go…

—————————————

Meet Me in the Hallway

VIBES VIBES VIBES 

Such an amazing song and I honestly was shocked he made a song that sounds like that (well actually that goes for all the songs on this album). But I honestly really liked the song. I like the way his voice sounded in the song too. It’s pretty emotional too.

Sign of the times

I mean I’ve heard this song a hundred times and each time it’s a great experience. I love the vocals, and I love the lyrics! Every time I hear it on radio I bump up the volume and just freaking soak in his voice. I think he made a great move choosing it as his first single.

When I hear the song I just feel proud.

Carolina 

I loved it literally right away! IT’S A BOP! Lyrics and vocals 10/10!!!! I was so happy he made a song that sounded like this.

It kinda makes me want to go to the beach and run around in a small faded orange bikini ( I actually am a west coaster ;P)

Two Ghosts

This song got me caught up in my feelings. Lots of emotion in there and it kinda made my heart hurt just a little. Lyrics are great and vocals on point. It kinda sounds like it could’ve been on One Direction’s Made in the AM album, honestly.

“Trying to remember how it feels to have a heart beat” 

Sweet Creature 

It’s so soft and calm and it weirdly feels safe? Like I feel if I’m scared and I listen to the song it’ll make me feel better! Yeah…don’t have much else to say about this one. Obviously his vocals were amazing!

But it’s the song I’ve listened to the least. In my opinion compared to the other songs on this album it’s not as interesting (that doesn’t mean I don’t like it, I do, I really do, but not as much as the rest)

Only Angel 

I thought it was going to be another slow emotional song but then he hit it with the “HEY, HEY” and I was like OH MY GOD YES HARRY. This song helped me start to see the more rock n’ roll side of Mr. Styles. LYRICS KILLED ME!!!! VOCALS KILLED ME!!!! THE GUITAR KILLED ME!!!! THE WHOLE SOND KILLED ME!!! Defiantly one of my favorites!

This is the song I dance around my house to in only underwear.

Kiwi

Fucking definition of rock star!!! Another song that shocked me. 

The weird thing about this song is that it actually made me cry real tears because I didn’t know how much of a true rockstar harry could be. The lyrics make no fucking sense but I loved it!! 

I’m not joking I started crying, then I started rocking out.

Ever Since New York

Its been stuck in my head since SNL…It’s kinda simple are really repetitive and I usually wouldn’t like songs like that but I genuinely am obsessed! I honestly don’t know why, I really love Ever Since New York

Women

HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE SONG! This song is so full of spunk and sensuality and thats the shit i’ve wanted from Harry since he’s been solo! I’ve been listening to this song non-stop. It has the right amount of vulnerability and sexuality without being raunchy at all! The lyrics are engraved in my head and that FREAKING GUITAR! I could say so much for this song, because I absolutely love it.

It kinda brings out this inner vixen in me (plus it’s a good song to have sex to)

From the Table 

Honest (that word sums it up)

I feel like this song is painfully honest and it makes me actually feel something. You can tell this was written from some sort of experience of his and you have to respect that bravery. I LOVED his voice in this. I want to give him a hug after listening to this! 

————————————–

Over all the album was a solid for me and really made me see Harry in a different and more mature way, and thats what we needed form him!! 

The lyrics weren’t turn over or made “appropriate”, It was all raw and true and I’m very satisfied. I didn’t want a PG album. I’m proud of Harry and he deserves all success he’s receiving.

I recommend this album to EVERYONE, because I think it has a song in it that everyone, young and old, will love!

Even though I don’t have tickets, seeing how he performs these songs live (through video) will be amazing and I can’t wait to see the kind of energy he has when he performs these songs!

It actually shocked me and It impressed me, and I really can’t wait for his future work. 





Now tell me your opinion!

Noise Complaint: A Harry/Murphy drabble

*leaps into the Harry/Murphy trashpile* I regret nothing. All credit goes to @xserpx for coming up with this idea. Cross posted on AO3.


Harry Dresden was so very, very sure that being with the woman of his literal dreams would reduce some of the embarrassment he suffered in life, but it turned out he was wrong.

DING-DONG.

Six o’clock in the morning. Harry snarled in the general direction of Karrin’s front door and stuffed his head beneath one of her pillows. He didn’t even want to acknowledge that six o’clock existed, let alone that someone was awake and ringing the doorbell.

DING-DONG.

“This is not happening,” he groaned. “Not now.”

“It is,” Karrin replied wearily from beside him. “Go do something about it.”

“But I was having The Dream,” he whined, tipping the pillow to one side so she could hear. “You know, the one where you were one of a set of triplets? And all three of you were gymnasts?”

Karrin snorted. “Damn, Dresden. The grass is always greener with you, isn’t it?”

“Don’t get me wrong,” he admitted, pushing up on one elbow enough to raise himself over her. “This is some pretty damn green grass.”

He waggled his eyebrows before dropping a kiss to her lips. Morning breath and all, it was still a damn good kiss, so much so that he forgot about the doorbell for a moment.

DING-DONG.

“I’m going to set someone on fire,” Harry growled, struggling into his boxers and a robe.

“Do not set anyone on fire,” Karrin said severely, rolling onto her side and cuddling her pillow.

Harry stormed over to the door and ripped it open. “What?”

An old woman stood there on Karrin’s front porch, her expression restrained but frosty. Harry squinted and realized she was actually the next door neighbor. “Oh. Excuse me. I have the manners of a goat in the morning. What can I do for you, Mrs. Crabtree?”

“Mr. Dresden,” she said in a clipped tone. “Let me first start by saying that I am rather delighted that you and Miss Murphy have finally decided to become a proper couple rather than continuing dancing around each other for ten years.”

Harry’s eyebrows rose. “Uh. Thank you. I think.”

“That being said, I felt it necessary to bring to your attention that I am displeased with you.”

“And why is that?”

She stared straight into his eyes. “The noise, Mr. Dresden.”

Harry scratched his head. “Noise? I mean, I didn’t think my AC/DC vinyl could be heard through the walls. I promise I’ll turn it down when it’s my turn to do the housework—”

“Mr. Dresden, I am not referring to your godforsaken rock-and-roll music. I am talking about the noise that happens almost precisely every night between midnight and three am.”

He stared at her. She cleared her throat and spoke in an endlessly exasperated tone. “From you and Miss Murphy’s boudoir.”

Harry Dresden, Winter Knight of Mab, Wizard of the White Council, promptly turned bright red from the base of his neck all the way up to his hairline. “Oh.”

“Yes,” Mrs. Crabtree said. “It is quite audible and it has been happening for three nights in a row. While I approve of your vigor, I thought it only fair to warn you that if you do not keep it down from now on, I will be forced to file a noise complaint with the police.”

“Y-Yes ma’am,” Harry mumbled. “I-I will let Murphy know that we’ve been, uh, disturbing you. I apologize for the inconvenience. If there’s anything I can do to make it up to you, please let me know.”

“As a matter of fact, there is. I have a bad back and Henry’s been leaning on his cane a lot lately. If you would be so kind as to rake the leaves in our front yard, I will consider us even.”

“I will be out there in ten minutes, ma’am.”

“Thank you, Mr. Dresden.” With that, the old woman turned and walked down the steps and disappeared into her house next door.

Harry shut the door and shuffled into Karrin’s bedroom, so red-faced that he was sure there was steam shooting out of his ears by now. He opened the closet and started getting dressed wordlessly. Karrin turned over in bed, scooping her blonde hair out of her eyes, blinking sleepily at him.

“What are you doing?”

“I’m going to rake your neighbor’s yard.”

“Oh. That’s nice of you. What brought that on?”

“Apparently, we’ve been keeping them up at night.”

“How? You don’t play your music at night and—” Murphy abruptly stopped talking. “Oh my God.

“Yep.”

“You’re never going to let this go, are you?”

Harry turned around and leaned over his equally red-faced girlfriend, but this time he was grinning madly. He pressed a short, sweet kiss to her lips.

“Maybe when we’re both dead.”
