Pop music, particularly the type as globally successful as what Harry Styles makes, has a unique responsibility. By nature, it’s supposed to soundtrack a wide variety of experiences — going to the grocery store, meeting a friend at a cafe, riding a taxi, and infinite other moments in people’s lives. On “Harry’s House,” Styles seems aware of this responsibility, even titling the album’s first track “Music For a Sushi Restaurant.”

Styles seems in his element on “Harry’s House,” an album that feels both intimate and universal at the same time. He has a unique knack for accessing very private yet collectively shared experiences, turning them into songs that feel more like hymns than whispered confessionals.
