    It’s time well-spent: slow-burning, dynamic, emotionally resonant and representative of Charly Bliss in 2019.

    Young Enough is a pop album that just happens to rock.

    This is one of those rare records that sounds like a Greatest Hits compilation and simultaneously a summer mixtape while, by the time winter rolls around, we'll be digging deeper into the reflective, cracked mirror lyrics to provide us with a little familiar, melancholic comfort.

    Ultimately, Young Enough outshines a promising debut, delivering a steady mix of summery earworms and angst.

    Young Enough is a big pop influenced record that rings authentic and hits every mark both lyrically and musically--an album to dance the pain away.

    A record whose combination of chirpy choruses and sharp, dark lyricism is difficult to resist. [Jul 2019, p.106]

    Young Enough is poppier than its predecessor but not always as immediately catchy. Sometimes that feels intentional and it can often be a good thing, often slowing down the band’s torpedo tunefulness to negotiate trauma in real time. It’s the mark of a band deepening the feelings of real personal struggle beneath the churning guitars and sheer melodies.

    Charly Bliss' new album "Young Enough" takes conventional pop rock and dials it up to a ten.
