Grade • C-

DVD • The British boy band One Direction appeared out of nowhere and whipped girls into a frenzy. But Utah fans won’t be able to thrust their loins toward these guys in person until July 2013.

To keep the women happy, the band’s label has rushed a live DVD, out this coming Sunday, called “Up All Night.”

The concert footage is a relatively Spartan, no-surprises affair compared with the big-budget spectacles of their American counterparts, such as the Backstreet Boys. Despite the behind-the-scenes footage, these boys show little personality or individuality behind the pleasant voices.
