Since his elimination from the X-Factor to the rise and fall of One Direction, Harry Styles has become an international sensation and produced music for millions’ enjoyment. On Dec. 13, Styles debuted his highly-anticipated sophomore album “Fine Line,” which he teased fans about for months leading up to the release date. 

Before the album was released in its entirety, the “Lights Up” music video dropped, garnering widespread approval and a craving for more singles. His promotions, including billboard advertisements and tweets, gave fans a taste of what was to come and what the album would encompass. 

“[“Fine Line” is] all about having sex and feeling sad,” Harry Styles said in an interview with Rolling Stone

The success of the album cannot be denied as multiple sources have praised “Fine Line, and the statistics do not lie. Billboard named Styles’s track “Adore You” as the hotshot debut this week of Dec. 21.  

“Retro-rock heartthrob Harry Styles is poised to have another smash hit on his hands with his second solo album “Fine Line,” which is projected to move between 420,000 and 440,000 units in its first week,” Forbes said. 

Of the 12 songs on the album, my favorites have to be “Adore You,” “Falling” and “To Be So Lonely.” I loved how profoundly personal and sensitive each track was, and the diversity makes me want to listen to each in-depth. “[‘Fine Line’] is good because [Styles] is very open in it, and he talks about how love is love and how there should be no judgment around that, ” Welden said.“My favorite songs were ‘Falling’ and ‘Cherry’ because they’re about the love of his life, and it’s so emotional.” Jackie Welden (10), who has been a fan of Styles for nine years, said.

Styles’s “Fine Line” was a delightful record and deserves all of its positive reception. Through listening to this album, I gained an unwonted appreciation for Styles, and his success as a solo artist has been solidified.

“It’s very well-written, and it’s more intense than his first album…we learn about him,” Welden said. “There’s nothing that I dislike about ‘Fine Line.’”
