If Payne can find a more distinctive vision and a team who can better utilize his strong vocals, he might get a chance for that longevity. For now, LP1 merely hints at his future potential.

The former One Direction member’s solo debut is just another pop star flailing to find his identity amid trend-hopping production and half-baked lyrics.
It's meant to showcase his maturity, but ‘LP1’ finds the former One Direction star so focused on ticking boxes that he forgets to have fun.
The Independent
Maybe he is very wise to keep himself back. He has millions of fans who will buy this anyway. But they should be aware he’s gone from One Direction to One Dimensional.
The Observer
Spread over 17 songs that tick off genres with all the flair of an automated Spotify playlist, Payne’s anonymity remains the album’s default through line.
The Arts Desk
One Direction star's debut has electronic bounce and is sexy as service station forecourt flowers.
The Guardian
One Direction’s Mr Boring lets his inner sexual piranha loose – with frightening results.

“Oh yeah, Harry is making good music. I have to cancel it out with the worst album I could possibly create.” -This twat, probably

There is not a single forgivable moment on this flaming bag of dogshit. Some of the most boring, sexually flaccid pop tracks I’ve ever forced myself to listen to. Bad features, every beat sounds the same, and some pretty boring vocals.

Hips Don’t Lie, Rude, Live Forever, Strip Down, and ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS are inexcusably bad.

FKA Twigs's LP1 is an absolutely groundbreaking body of work that changed the electronic music scene forever. i personally love this album, as it features some of my favorite tracks of the 2010s like... strip that down? stack it up... feat. a boogie wit a hoodie?...

wait a minute...


Funny story, there's a joke in Brazil among pop diva fans that Liam Payne should just sign a contract with HotBoys and get his bucks with adult videos, since he already is everywhere with his semi-nude pictures. Why's that, you ask? Because after Harry Styles's solo ascension, no one cares for any other ex-One Direction member.

To say the least, I'll be including Liam Payne in my "Boring Hottie" bucket. You may get the hots for him, but nothing other than his looks is truly amusing. ... read more


I think this is very overhated, it's mostly just very bland and boring pop/dance music. But to call this a 2.5/10 to me is just crazy. It's not that terrible.

Top Tracks: Strip That Down (Best), Familiar, Heart Meet Break, Live Forever

Worst Track: Weekend


unmemorable and bland.


The album cover font was a sign that the album was gonna be bad. Unlike Fka Twigs Liam Payne’s album LP1 is at best boring background music and and at worst unlistenable. Rude hours and weekend are ok songs with decent production. For you with Rita Ora was the highlight on the album, all I want for Christmas is another good track that actually does a good job of showcasing Liam’s vocals other than those songs the rest of the album is not great. The worst song on the album is ... read more
