Give the lad his due: it would have been easy for the One Direction heartthrob to trot out a collection of ersatz R&B crowd-pleasers, but on Flicker he keeps faith with the West Coast influences that first drew him into music.

Meh. It’s safe enough, and I actually really enjoy some of the songs. It’s radio-friendly folk pop.. I mean, I don’t think the album could’ve ended up much better. 2 or 3 good songs, the rest is unimportant at best.
