Album Review: Charli XCX - True Romance

Charli XCX - True Romance

Style: Synthpop
Pros: Good
Cons: Borders line of Pop but isn't...yet (which, I guess is a Pro)
Overview:   Ever since I heard Stay Away a couple of years ago, I was interested in learning more about Charli XCX... though she remained somewhat quiet until now. True Romance is a very good listen.  It's got the dark 80-ish Synth feeling, whilst keeping in todays fashion. When you think it'll traverse into the Pop arena, it stays just enough away to make it enjoyable.  Though that's not to say mainstream will pick this up and turn it into Pop.   If you take Ladytron, The Knife, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J and The XX, shake it all together, you'll get something like Charli XCX (That's probably a bad example, but you get the point).
Top Songs: Nuclear Season, You, Stay Away
