Four is the fourth studio album by English-Irish boy band One Direction, released in November 2014 via Columbia Records and SYCO Entertainment.

Four is the band's fourth album in four years, and their fourth well-crafted, packed-with-great-pop-songs album in a row. Despite rumors flying about possible collaborations, the band mostly worked with the same production team from Midnight Memories (Julian Bunetta and John Ryan) to craft an album that sounds perfectly up to date, but also just different enough from the usual chart-fodder to sound distinctive.

Though the group and its team generally do a fine job with ballads, the tracks on Four with a little more life in them are the standouts. "Girl Almighty" is an odd mixture of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," Paul Simon, and Bollywood pop that doesn't sound like anything else on the charts.

A couple of tracks ("Stockholm Syndrome", "Fireproof") mix Fleetwood Mac-inspired vocal harmonies and sweetly slick '80s pop in a very pleasant way, and a handful more continue the group's odd but welcome fascination with '80s pop/rock, especially the very, very Journey-sounding "Steal My Girl." "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" too, feels like it time-traveled from the airwaves of an AOR station in 1984, where it was happily sandwiched between cuts by Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams. These tracks sound so good they can't help but overshadow the ballads that make up the rest of the record.

It's was becoming more clear with each record that, the guys in One D are way better at the fun songs than they are at the ballads. The lads sound much more convincing as fun-loving party boys or slightly melancholic crooners, and when they reach for the big emotions, they just can't reach them. Luckily on Four the scales are tipped heavily in favor of the kind of songs they do best, with the majority of them sounding like good-time hits.

Check out the tracks: “Steal My Girl” and “Night Changes”.

This Limited Edition Double LP, housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inners, is pressed in Europe on Black Vinyl.
