  1. 91
    Sucker is pop-punk, radically redefined and dragged, middle fingers waving, into the future.
  2. 83
    Sucker’s greatest musical weapon is Aitchison’s voice--a posh, melodramatic caterwaul that will encourage either adoration or virulent hatred for all of its full-throated, Union Jack swagger.

    80
    This collection’s predecessor, 2013’s ‘True Romance’, showcased an artist willing to take on the pop world. Sucker finds that same, singular performer rewriting the rules entirely, never mind breaking any, and beating pop at its own game.

    Sucker is a one-two punch of wit and grit, as irreverently bratty as the lollipop Charli holds on the cover yet never impersonal, perfunctory, or insincere.
  5. Dec 16, 2014
    72
    For all her bratty star power, Charli XCX’s purest magic lies in the intimate--not the irreverent.
  6. 67
    She’s successfully roping punk into pop and laughing her way to the top.
  7. Sucker ends up monochromatic, but that only helps Charli hone a persona. If the one here doesn’t exactly make her the new Joe Strummer, it does suggest a British answer to Kesha. She’s the likable brat of the hour.

    Solid, fun, unique. These three words describe the colorful pop Sucker.
