    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.

    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.

    For all her bratty star power, Charli XCX’s purest magic lies in the intimate--not the irreverent.

    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.

La era más afortunada para Charli, SUCKER, en donde fue para ella una ventana al mundo, ya que fue más reconocido su talento y presencia en el mundo de la música, siendo vista como princesa o reina por algunos fans de la música alternativa, Charli XCX nos recibe con canciones agresivas, ochenteras y amorosas, Donde cada letra nos muestra una versión de su forma de ver la vida. SUCKER con 15 canciones nos muestra la vida de color de rosa,con un toque Tumblr y slime a no pedir más.
    Canciones recomendabas: SUCKER, BREAK THE RULES, BOOM CLAP, DOING IT, FAMOUS, SO OVER YOU y NEED UR LUV.

Both the lyrics and the beats are really catchy. The only song that I didn't like so much was "Red Balloon" but hey, it's still awesome. Charli, you're a really good writer. Expand

Simultaneously, for me, it feels mostly like a bog standard pop album, catchy at times, yet not fully to my taste. Looks in some cases like there's something new to party for though. Expand
