Harry Styles has made himself pretty vulnerable with the release of his self-titled solo album today, and we like seeing this side of the pop superstar. 

Harry Styles is skyrocketing to the top of the charts today, and fans are digging in as we try to learn more about Styles' personal feelings than we ever have in the past.

Throughout the 10-track album (which lasts about 40 minutes), Harry definitely leaves his open heart out on the floor for us. In fact, Styles acknowledged that very point in a recent interview with the New York Times. He says that he was excited to share a side of his life that he had not been able to share before.

Which, by the way, after listening to the album, we get the feeling that Harry is feeling a little lonely these days. Just listening to tracks like "Meet Me in the Hallway" and "From The Dining Room Table" are pretty raw. 

Naturally, the internet is already speculating that "Two Ghosts" is about his short relationship with Taylor Swift. In fact, lyrical comparisons are being made to Swift's "Style," which is rumored to have been about Harry.

The vibe from the album has already been compared to many iconic rockers, however, so it's safe to say that he's in good company. It's never a bad thing when your first solo album is compared to legends like Prince, Mick Jagger, and David Bowie. Harry will hit the road on a world tour in support of the album this fall.
