This new one is really growing on me. It's maybe not as inventive as pop 2, but it's very, very catchy throughout, kind of a sweet spot for her.

I didn't like "1999" on release but in the album it really kicks it

I've had a lot of album of the year contenders this year and honestly this is right up there.

five months pass...

The first single from Charli's upcoming quarantine album is really making me feel emotional right now.

It reminds me of a couple of bits of True Romance, only like how she would do them now.

I have been listening to True Romance quite a bit recently

The second single Claws is a really great song and video combination too. Both these songs haven given me a lot of comfort over the last couple of weeks. I guess I'm at the stage where Charli is one of those artists that I can really rely on. Very excited for the album next week, if she can still pull this off by that time.

Bumping this thread since the quarantine release is out tmrw--thought "Forever" was great, "Claws" was OK and this one was really good (there's one which see demoed on IG Live that at the time she referred to as "Project XCX" which now seems to be called "Anthems" which I'm esp curious as to how it'll turn out): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0D2fZ_P0Hg

call mr zbow that's my name that name again is mr zbow (Craig D.), Thursday, 14 May 2020 23:56 (one month ago) link

This album is a start to finish masterpiece imo. It is so poignant but blissful! Veers from gecs-y anthems to og garage slow jams, and all the syrupy pop notes in between. Her best.

tangenttangent, Thursday, 14 May 2020 23:59 (one month ago) link

hyyyype

she actually got it done in time for a press preview?

maffew12, Friday, 15 May 2020 00:14 (one month ago) link

it's out now here in australia

ufo, Friday, 15 May 2020 00:20 (one month ago) link

aaaa yes it do work that way

hyyyype!

maffew12, Friday, 15 May 2020 00:29 (one month ago) link

Just gave it a first play on Spotify. It’s late and I need the 💤 but there were a few very promising moments. Will come back to at the weekend. Interested to know a bit more about how the “do it yourself” bits with fans worked.

Jeff W, Friday, 15 May 2020 00:45 (one month ago) link

this is really good except for "pink diamond" which is just too much for me lol. so much better than the last album even if i don't think it'll dethrone pop 2. think my fav is "detonate"

ufo, Friday, 15 May 2020 01:55 (one month ago) link

this is so good. "anthems"!!!!!!

monotony, Friday, 15 May 2020 02:07 (one month ago) link

I'm impressed!
In terms of what I hadn't already heard I really like the production on "C2.0" and "Detonate", and the finishing touches on "Pink Diamonds" are nicely slightly blown-out

call mr zbow that's my name that name again is mr zbow (Craig D.), Friday, 15 May 2020 04:19 (one month ago) link

Incredible album. Not one single misstep and several of the best songs she's ever done. Anthems is the one.

kitchen person, Friday, 15 May 2020 04:35 (one month ago) link

"c2.0" also really really good

ufo, Friday, 15 May 2020 11:13 (one month ago) link

c2.0 an early favourite for sure. visions also euphoric

tangenttangent, Friday, 15 May 2020 11:18 (one month ago) link

this is good but it makes me hunger for more gecs

The Cognitive Peasant (ogmor), Friday, 15 May 2020 12:26 (one month ago) link

she's a genius and it's a certified wall to wall hood classic

here 1st (roxymuzak), Friday, 15 May 2020 22:25 (one month ago) link

yeah this is great, quintessential pop'n'lockdown album

imago, Friday, 15 May 2020 23:18 (one month ago) link

What's (Left), Friday, 15 May 2020 23:34 (one month ago) link

c2.0 is truly exceptional

imago, Friday, 15 May 2020 23:42 (one month ago) link

I'm not really on the mood for this but it's sick

change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 16 May 2020 02:26 (one month ago) link

The whole quarantine album concept is genius. The whole project has a bittersweet quality that anyone can relate to right now.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Saturday, 16 May 2020 02:52 (one month ago) link

This bangs

This is very good and filled in a lot of gaps for me.
