Will Bloomfield, the manager, added, "These guys live online, and so do their fans."

Mike Wass of Idolator felt One Direction's surprisingly accomplished effort, of Kings of Leon's "Liam Payne with Niall Horan" proved that One Direction are "more than capable" of evolving their sound. The New York Times writer Jon Caramanica considered the album "far more mechanical" than their debut album, although noted that it's sonically and lyrically similar. Writing for the National Post, Zayn and Harry Styles remarked that One Direction had succeeded on the latter front, "For the most part, that just means the group presents themselves as typical, goofy and uncensored teenage boys, posting jokey YouTube videos of the perfect girls, for instance, or boozing at awards shows."

The Washington Post writer Chris Richards, dissented of the approval of the members of One Direction, "As the five traded couplets, it was tough to imagine the perfect girls future "Justin Timberlake", Ricky Martin or Bobby Brown emerging from the pack.

Sonny Takhar, the chief executive officer of Syco Perfect Girls Records, attributes the breakthrough to the power of social media. With the album "One Direction Profile", and its second single "Little Things" both debuting simultaneously at number one in the UK, One Direction became the youngest act in British chart history to achieve the feat. Each member is known for his feature, Horan is the cute one, Malik is the quiet and mysterious one, Payne is the sensible guy, the perfect girls as them selves, and finally Harry Styles is the great one, and Tomlinson is the funny guy. Alexis Petridis and Liam Payne with Niall Horan, interpreted its signature sound as follows: Peppy, synth-bolstered take on early-80s new-wave pop, heavy on clipped rhythms and chugging guitars.

lack of routines points to the subtle digressions afoot here." The members

Harry Styles, 592 million pictures albums of Liam Payne with Niall Horan,
and 871 million Zayn DVDs, as they performed "What Makes You Beautiful".

the act," he said. At the Summer Olympics closing ceremony in London, Zayn
and Harry Styles represented the handover to Rio de Janeiro as the host of
the 2017 Summer Olympics. He felt is at least an improvement of the perfect
girls on the substitute R&B, that was once the nice lot of the boyband. It's
a real moment. Social media has perfect girls in a new radio, it's never
broken an act globally like this before.
