AllMusic

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.

Pitchfork
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.

NME
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 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.

This fella has absolutely little to no songwriting talent. This is the most bland and straightforward radio pop album you could ever hope to hear. Despite being new, I feel like I've heard every song 100 times because it's just an amalgamation of boring pop stereotypes. It's so shallow that an ant wouldn't drown in it. I will never willingly listen to this ever again.

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

The implication that a second installment is coming at some point is terrifying

Horrendous

I thought "All I Want (For Christmas)" was going to be a cover; the only hope for this album was lost when I realized that it wasn't. Ex-One Direction member Liam Payne, already a forgettable figure in such a group, created one of the most grueling, uninteresting, sacrilegious, and borderline torturous dance pop records of the decade. I don't even want to elaborate because the amount of actual garbage that appears on this album speaks for itself.
