As well you should. It's cool.

Charli claims she's making a...punk album next. Inspired by the Hives. With all of her recent pop success, it wouldn't surprise me if the label makes her shelve it and release some bullshit, but that's the word for now.

I have high hopes for her. True Romance was great.

Oh good good. I'd just got to wondering!

This would definitely rekindle my interest. I take her as the assertive type who would tell her label where to go if they tried to shelve it.

Punk rock from Venus

aka "the Boom Clap check cleared".

it's kind of a high wire act Charli's pulling, between "dumb" and "pop". I think she's smart enough to pull it off and comes down on the right side; as a first impression I like it and think it's pretty solid.

I'm really not quite sure how I feel, yet.

Yeah, my gut response is good, but how it's going to sound two months from now by the time the album friggin' comes out- sort of boom or bust.

I've voiced my concern many times over that she's going to release something bubble-gum pop radio friendly. That's not inherently a bad thing, I'm just afraid of it not sounding like her. Eh, it is what it is, I suppose.

Sounds like Charli has been listening to some Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I'm in.

I like it. Her swagger can't be suppressed.

Sucker is streaming on iTunes.

I think it's a clean stream, but it may just be the first track with ironic censorship (a la Protect Ya Neck); there's nothing approaching explicit on most of these tracks.

Despite the presence of Boom Clap, this IS a rock album, albeit with lots of electronic touches. Breaking Up sounds like an Elastica track. Play it fucking loud.

I like Charli, but I forgot how cringeworthy "Break the Rules" was until hearing it again just now.

OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh fuck me. I have some stuff to do that prevents me from listening.

Soon, Charli.

Soon.

Alright, here we go.

Intro was fine, Break the Rules continues to grow on me, and the third track was silly fun. I'm happy so far.

Got caught up in work and baseball related stuff, sorry.

Listened to the album twice. I'm not 100% sure how I felt, while I loved True Romance on first listen. This was certainly enjoyable, but it didn't sound nearly as innovative, for pop music. I'm expecting it to grow on me, because the songs are catchy as hell.

Definitely something I liked, at any rate.
