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. I’m always a bit unsure because I feel like there’s an overuse of autotune going on, but it wasn’t just that.

I also don’t quite understand it because the Charli Essentials playlist on Beats 1 is fabulous, but the album doesn’t work. So is it just this album or is it all albums from the lovely Charli?
