Somehow, the second chorus hits even harder. Horan really only has two speeds on “Heartbreak Weather” — frisky or brokenhearted.

The plucked-guitar beginning is sweet, and Horan's voice sounds great, but it would've gotten old by the end of the second chorus.

The half dozen best songs — like the Ed Sheeran-like “No Judgement,” the ‘80s-ish title track and the addictive “New Angel” — are diluted by too many that make little impression, especially the softer, quieter songs “Black and White,” “Dear Patience,” “Put a Little Love On Me,” “Still” and “San Francisco.”.

Heartbreak Weather by Niall Horan.

We listened to every song on the tracklist, and wrote down our first impressions of each one. I know it wasn't intended to be consumed this way, but I do like it more as an ode to waiting out your anxieties in the age of self-quarantining, honestly.

Know about breaking news as it happens. An anxious Niall Horan appears on the cover of his sophomore solo album, “Heartbreak Weather” (Capitol Records). – but he quickly found his groove. Like, the band has "Hey Angel" on "Made in the A.M.," Styles has "Only Angel" on his debut solo album, and now Horan has "New Angel." [46], In Ireland and the Netherlands, Flicker debuted at number one. The song is about longing for home, and it does that I-wish-I-was-somewhere-else yearning infinitely better than "San Francisco.". Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson must already be thinking about getting the boy band back together, after their long-delayed and rather pedestrian albums flopped in the US.

It's that generic pop-rock song that doesn't say a whole lot, and if you're not going to buddy up with Styles for it, what's the point? Overall, we thought Horan exhibited real growth since his One Direction days, and we enjoyed tracks like "Heartbreak Weather" and "Small Talk." [56], Credits adapted from the liner notes of Flicker. Basketball is among a group of winter sports that has been put "on hold" by Illinois Gov. Looking for smart ways to get more from life?

[39] Andy Gill, writing for The Independent, wrote that "it would have been easy for the One Direction heartthrob to trot out a collection of ersatz R&B crowd-pleasers", but instead "he keeps faith with the West Coast influences that first drew him into music", while also noting Fleetwood Mac's influence and complimenting "the formula of fat, warm bass and drums anchoring light guitars". (Update June 26: You are not required to include the Heartbreak Weather album title in your submission, but may if you wish).

I like this one much less than its predecessor.

Collaborating with teams of top writer-producers (including Tobias Jesso, Teddy Geiger, Julian Bunetta and Scott Harris), many of whom worked with One Direction, Horan has come up with a format that blends his innately conservative musical tastes with perfectly manicured mainstream pop. *Final album score based on songs per category (1 point for "Worth listening to," .5 for "Background music," 0 for "Press skip").

Horan was the dark horse, however, the quiet, guitar-toting Irishman achieving success by grounding himself in the solid songwriting craftsmanship of air-conditioned soft rock and acoustic balladry, pitched squarely in the middle of the road between childhood favourites the Eagles and his contemporary and friend Ed Sheeran. Horan may have joked that his timing of this album wasn't the best in light of a recent global pandemic, but it's already shaping up to be the kind of music I will gladly add to a coronavirus playlist.
