SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, IT'S FINALLY HERE.
It's fair to say that it feels as though we've been waiting forever this album, with the brilliant first two singles - Live While We're Young and Little Things - only making us even more bladdy desperate to hear the whole thing.
Well Scapers, the day has arrived and we. are. not. disappointed.
The boys have been saying for a while that Take Me Home is similar to Up All Night in terms of sound, and that's true to a certain extent - but this second offering from the biggest boyband on the planet also has a whole load more of added oomph, sass - and personality.
Basically, It's like Up All Night had a baby with something AWESOME.
Going on tour has clearly influenced the 1D lads too - we can imagine almost every single track sounding incredible in a stadium - and it's obviously been recorded with that in mind.
There's also more of a personal feel to a lot of the lyrics, which we'd expect, considering the boys got involved with writing this time round.
The overall sound is obviously still pure pop - but there's more to it than that, with an ode to some of the (good) nineties boybands, a nod to eighties stadium rock and even some dance-music vibes - all wrapped up in the shiny One Direction style that we know and love.
Now we know you lot, and we knew that a simple summary of the HOTLY anticipated second album simply wouldn't be enough - so we've broken it down for you, track by flipping track.
