    I don't think that this album isn't so good how people are talkin' outside. Charli XCX has a beautiful voice, but a trash production... So many beats and effects that made me crazy and got me a headache.

    Didn't know quite what to expect from this album and was pleasantly surprised. There's quite a mixture of different types of electronica. From the kooky Nuclear Seasons and Set Me Free to the laid back What I Like and the 80's influenced Lock You Up, there's something here for every type of electronic fan.

    There isn’t a moment when Charli XCX doesn’t display the kind of wild, brash confidence that other artists take years to arrive at.

    Like 90s pop stars turned 10s pop sophisticates Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé, Charli XCX stamps her personality across the entire project, and True Romance suggests she'll be worth following for a while.

    At the moment, her music is best consumed in blog-sized chunks, not as a stodgy 48-minute album.
