Details Release Date: Nov 13, 2012; Lead Performance: One Direction; Genre: Pop; Production: Columbia

After leaving U.S. fans without a new album for all of eight months (tween time conversion: 4EVA!!!), the U.K.'s favorite multiplatinum puppy basket are back with even more airtight harmonies and blokes-will-be-blokes cheek. True to their name, 1D haven't veered an inch off course since their debut — catchy new tracks ''Kiss You'' and ''Heart Attack'' would've fit right in on March's Up All Night. But the rush shows: Most of Take Me Home is filler with barely enough zip to keep the kids up past dinner. C

Kiss You
C'mon, C'mon
