Like the title says, I think Charli's debut album is a breath of fresh air in the otherwise dreary world of music and love songs.

This record has many different sounds to it but I would definitely class it as Alternative/Pop. It features the previous singles: Nuclear Seasons, You're the one, You (Ha Ha Ha) and the current single: What I Like.

You can tell that each song is well written in its own right and sends out the messages of Charli's experiences when it comes to love. It's nice to hear songs about love that are different from the mainstream and this record does this perfectly. It even features a collaboration with Rapper/Photographer: Brooke Candy.

For me, the main standout track on this record is Stay Away.

I love this album and can't recommend it enough. :)

True ROmance is a debut album that showcases an artist so inspired by Pop music and Pop culture she has immersed herself and brought her passions into a contemporary world from that dimension.

Just listening through this album, the vocal styles, imagery, sounds/sonics, lyrics really echo and mirror aspects of Madonna, Depeche Mode, Debbie Harry, Siouxsie & The Banshees...and often in one song....its a powerful union of heroes and sounds from Pop and Rock that worlds so well...with this Indietronica/New Wave/Dark Wave/Synth driven record....it opens up so many beautiful layers.

It makes you think, man, loads of these underground singers are kinda like the "new pioneers" for the current generation....the leaders of mainstream music in the 1970s, 80s, 90s are now the more underground artists of today...especially in the UK...here with Charli, and Florence Welch, Little Boots, Laura Marling, Ellie goulding, Marina Diamandis.....so many talented/inspired ladies of the past moving from one dimension into another...and in many ways that is what makes True ROmance so powerful....it echoes to the aforementioned artists styles/content/power and pushes different territories too.

To conclude Charli XCX is a very inspried artist for a Tumblr dominated world consumed in social media...but also she has a mass appeal about her...she taps into her inner Madonna, Siouxsie Sioux and Dave Gahan and explodes something truly rich, dark and beautiful...well worth a listen.

Being a fan of Rita Ora and loving the song 'Doin It' by Charli Xcx feat Rita Ora, I had purchased Charli's second album first- and think it's pretty good- but I was taking a bit of a gamble with this album: not knowing what it would be like at all- and i have to say IT'S BRILLIANT! Strongly recommended! From the first play, I enjoyed it- a great album- and, in my opinion, deserved great chart success- I would definately buy a third album- if Charli does one. I can't decide if i think i prefer True Romance to Sucker either!

Charli XCX's debut major release album 'True Romance' is an amazing alternative pop album. Following her debut album '14', Charli XCX is back with her first commercial album featuring the hits 'You (Ha Ha Ha)' and 'You're The One' as well as 'Nuclear Seasons' and 'Stay Away'. This is a very strong pop record and is the album that has gave XCX her foundations for her career. This is a must have album for XCX fans or for people looking for something less polished and mainstream.

I was supposed to love this, capital "L". All of the descriptors that floated around Charli's music on various media sources-dark, catchy, atmospheric, gothic, electronic-seemed like they were hand picked from my internal checklist. Her album made year end lists. Popjustice and Muumuse, two sites that I usually find reliable with this sort of thing, praised it into high heavens. I decided to take a chance on True Romance, having done so a few times in the past and finding the risk well worth it. This time round though, I wasn't as lucky: in my opinion this is, at best, a fairly average debut.

There's no big, fundamental flaw with this record that seeps into everything and makes the album crumble apart; rather, it's the small bits that pick away at it and take away from the enjoyment. For one thing, in spite of only two songs clocking in at over 4 minutes and the whole thing being a scant 47 minutes long, I find it oddly laborious to listen to the whole set in one go. It certainly starts off promising, with three of the first four tracks being immensely likeable and interesting. "Take my hand" is probably my favourite, with its ecstatic synth stabs and giddily percolating effects higlighting Charli's euphoria, but "Stay away" is not far behind, a dark, brooding piece with ominous metallic percussion, a true melancholic highlight. But, somewhere near the mid point, there's a noticeable dip in quality, and by the time the last three cuts (among the strongest of the bunch) come around, it's far too late to salvage the mission. There's great stuff here-about half of the tracks are pretty awesome. The rest? Not so much.
