    It is no surprise that the sound is full of all the kind of clanking noises and sci-fi effects that have long steered Charli just left of the mainstream. Yet somehow this set of 11 short songs has a directness, immediacy and intimacy that has eluded her before. ... This album showcases the least mannered performances of her career. She makes you feel these songs.

    “How I’m Feeling Now” is very much a continuation of the innovative futurist-pop her discography has followed over the past five years. ... It also shows this deeply talented and creatively restless artist pushing the boundaries of her music practically in real time (which one can do almost literally via her Instagram and Zoom sessions), and giving tantalizing hints of what might come next.

    Charli starts and ends with hard disorienting club bangers, leaving the middle of the album space to expose her tenderness and vulnerability while still retaining her futuristic, unpredictable sound and penchant for an irresistible pop hook.

    Brimming with the prickling anxiety and stress that’s become commonplace during the pandemic, as well as the comfort Charli XCX has found in a strengthened relationship, it’s a glorious, experimental collection.

    A stirring and immediate listen, as Charli takes us with her on her lockdown emotional rollercoaster in real time.

    Though it lacks the alien opalescence of Charli's best record, how i'm feeling now contains a different sort of thrilling delirium. It's fun and sometimes silly, made on the fly and under a tight deadline. But it's desperate too — a frenzied call for release, an ode to the love that keeps us going, and further proof that no other pop artist today can make the digital sound so disarmingly human.

    It’s another intriguing entry into the Charli XCX canon, even if it does feel like more of a stopgap than anything. But hey, right now, that’s okay too.

Showing exactly the moment we live in the COVID-19 pandemic and how inventiveness is needed. Charli used everything she had to produce the album in six weeks, composing and recording at home. Charli invited fans to send feedback on all aspects of the album, from video contributions, to song lyrics and singles selection. Expand

    Es un total sin sentido de principio a fin, no existe ni correlación entre los elementos musicales, ni una composición, cero armonía. TampocoEs un total sin sentido de principio a fin, no existe ni correlación entre los elementos musicales, ni una composición, cero armonía. Tampoco se pide música docta que siga las reglas de la música, más bien, podría haber sido un álbum "sin armonía- armonioso", pero este en particular, hace pensar que ni siquiera es una producción pensada para ese objetivo. Solo puedo imaginar a Charli XCX apretando cualquier cosa en sus sintetizadores y piano, creando frases y melodías al azar, no hay nada detrás, no hay dedicación. No hay nada "futurista" aquí, es un desorden desde el primer segundo. Expand
