CRASH by Charli XCX

I’m always a bit nervous listening to a new Charli XCX album - I like a lot of her music but have found a full album can get a bit out there for me. The last one was not one of my favourites. But thankfully, this one was a lot better, bigger, bolder, brighter - it hits you right from the start with those iconic vocals and production. They are pretty much all good songs throughout with maybe a slight dip in the middle, and some great guest stars (Christine and the Queens!) to make an overall good listen.

This is tricky. I really love a couple of the singles on this - 1999 is brilliant, and Gone with Christine and the Queens is epic. Even Haim make an appearance! But the rest of it was really not for me. I feel guilty because I listened to an interview with Charli saying it was her best work and she thought it would stand the test of time, but I really didn’t enjoy it.
