If One Direction are the new 'Nsync in the modern battle of the boybands, The Wanted are the new Backstreet Boys--more mature melodically, less punchy musically. They've already released two great albums filled with modern pop music, so their first American EP is basically a Greatest Hits up to this point (with a couple of non-hits tacked on). Because of this, it's already got a leg up on most albums. After all, the Wanted are a strong singles group.

1. Glad You Came - The lead single from their second UK album, and the one that broke them in America. It's an addictive slice of tropical euro-pop and definitely Summer appropriate. Not their best, but close. 10/10

2. Chasing The Sun - Pretty much, "Glad You Came" part two, but I actually think I like this one better. One of the two "new" tracks on the album, this definitely deserves its single status. It's just ridiculously catchy. 10/10

3. All Time Low - Their breakthrough single, and still their best. Basically, what Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" was for alternative music, this is for pop (though I'm aware that describing Coldplay as "alternative" is pretty ridiculous, but you get the point). If there's any justice, this should be a US single. It's too good to go unknown. 10/10

4. Satellite - One of the "new" tracks on the album, this Ryan Tedder written track feels a little generic. I don't know... the melody just doesn't do anything all that interesting. Though it's nice to have a new track, I'd rather they would have included the excellent "I'll Be Your Strength" from the second UK album. 8/10

5. Lightning - Not my favorite single, but certainly not bad. I loved the melody the first few times I heard it, but it wore thin pretty quickly.

Unfortunate for The Wanted might be the fact they are squarely in the shadows of fellow, more youthful boy-band One Direction. Their U.S. Debut, not necessarily their proper one at that, trails the release of One Direction's Up All Night, a consistent top-ten fixture on the Billboard Albums chart. Regardless, The Wanted's EP, entitled simply The Wanted or referred to colloquially as `The EP' serves as an introduction of the band the United States as it combines singles from their British released albums to one `buzz' EP. The `Special Edition' version adds three more songs, making the effort more of an `album.' Unsurprisingly, the pre-released singles are all highlights, making The Wanted EP an enjoyable listen for the most part.

Hailed #3 pop single "Glad You Came" opens the effort brilliantly. Piano supports the lyrics of the hook at the onset before the cut ascends into a mix of pop and techno-dance sensibilities. Well produced and perhaps even more endearing because of the overt British accent (One Direction's is much less apparent), "Glad You Came" may be corny and schmaltzy, but it is fun. The refrain is definitely well penned: "The sun goes down/the stars come out/and all that counts is here and now/my universe will never be the same/I'm glad you came."

"Chasing the Sun" is a smart follow-up to "Glad You Came," staying in line with the dance-style. The four-on-the-floor beat is effective, regardless of being predictable. The vocal production is particularly notable. If "Chasing the Sun" has any flaw, it is the mere fact that it is incredibly similar to "Glad You Came.

I got this album for a great deal, and I really enjoy a lot of the songs on the album, like "Glad You Came," "Chasing the Sun," "All Time Low," and "Lightning."

I normally do not really like "boy bands", but The Wanted is amazing! The songs are really catchy and the CD is worth it to buy.

I really like this group. I have shared the music with several friends and they all like it. Better than One Direction. Glad I found this music.

i'm not sure she had heard of them before i bought the cd for her but i found it on the lightning deals (how i did most of my christmas shopping this past year - thank you amazon lightning deals and prime shipping!)... she hasn't stopped listening to it since... it is your typical boy band, with your typical boy band songs... if your child likes one direction - they will like the wanted.
