This is just for fun and out of my curiosity.

1D have Zayn and he's an incredible stand alone vocalist, so I choose them. Their songs are also very enjoyable, albeit predictable. Also I know I updated the JB thread, but that was just to have it updated. His music is simply awful to listen to.

Though I don't listen to either, I've obviously heard songs from both, and for me it would quite simply be 1D. And funny enough, I was on the Zayn Malik thread just before doing this; that basically inspired this.

The only thing I really like about JB is his wonderful personality, extreme kindness, thoughtfulness, and consideration, and his near-perfect behavior.

One Direction by far. They're honestly just being a fun boy-band (and they're not any blander than the rest), I think, plus they're actually pretty nice vocalists and pleasant to look at. Bieber doesn't appeal to me in any way, though his voice is pleasant too.

You really gotta hand it to Zayn, he's a pretty special vocalist. Just naturally blessed with a fantastic voice that's only improved with practice, touring and recording. I wouldn't say any member of 1D is a terrible vocalist, they all bring something to the table and they can individually carry a tune on their own. But Zayn is definitely the superior of hem all xD

But seriously, even as when he was dubbed as this musical ''child prodigy'' or so he was called, I still believe he was shit. Compare his pre-puberty years to Michael Jackson's and see the difference in range and ability. It's ridiculous how washed up he is now and he's only 20/21.

I definitely prefer pre-puberty JB to post. 

And now with this 1D talk, I may have to go and listen up and research a little bit.

After their songwriters stopped being so creepy and manipulative, it's been much easier to like them, especially since they have some great vocal talent. Bieber is a very skilled technically skilled drummer and pianist, but his playing on piano is generic and his drum "solos" are just a basic 4/4 beat with fast offbeat fills.

I don't know if he is that technically skilled at drumming. All the drumming I've seen/heard from him was very similar IIRC. I'm not sure about piano, though. I don't really make it a point to listen to JB. Cool

I remember being impressed by his drumming when I was younger cuz he could play "fast", but as I grew up and became more savvy on what made a good musician I just saw how it was speed without any tightness or precision. And yes his drumming was all very same sounding. As I said, all he would do was play a simple fast 4/4 beat then play a quick spaz fill, return to the beat offtime, rinse and repeat.

One Direction by far... Not a fan of Justin's music or personality, although "All Around the World" is a surprisingly good song.

I wouldn't normally listen to either, and I don't actually think any of them are outstanding vocalists, but I have some respect for 1D for improving as much as they have. It must have taken them a lot of hard work to climb to mediocrity. And although it doesn't influence my decisions on whether or not to listen to his music (I generally avoid it), Bieber does not come across as a nice person.

Eh they lean a lot on Harry Styles too, even if he's only passable as a vocalist

Biebs, to be honest, I quite enjoy his latest styleswitch, the hiphopesque songs. 1D on the other hand still makes me itching to grap a shotgun and start shooting tween girls in the face.

1D. not a fan per se, but I recognize that all of them besides maybe Niall have potentially good voices. and "Story of my Life" is dece even though it sounds stolen from Mumford & Sons.

whereas the Beeb seems like an irredeemable douche with a basic, basic voice and no musical inclination.

Indeed. I don't need to listen to his music to dislike him.

One Direction

I almost don't listen to them but I respect both, Bieber and 1d. Music is just music, crafted, performed, arranged, sung, etc

But haters going to hate extra factors.

1d is more focused in modern pop and rock pop, and Bieber is a young version of modern R&B in the same vein as Timberlake. Influences speak alone. But shame rock and rap haters won't give credit any of them. I don't care

1D is too outdated. And I know almost nothing about 1D, and I hate Beiber.

But if I had to choose between the both of them, I'd say 1D.

Honesty, I don't find the music Bieber's making now as horrible as the one he did back 4-5 years ago. The bad thing about One Direction is that they only focus on one or two of their vocalists.

1D by far i'd say.Check out their auditions;I prefer the pre-fame HarryBari.Really love Liam's voice.For a boyband pop singer, he has a pretty deep voice.And Zayn's an A lister vocalist.No wonder he called it quits.
