Product Description

Product Description

U.S. vinyl LP pressing. 2013 album from British singer/songwriter Charlotte Aitchison AKA Charli XCX. Over the course of a few years, Charli has released a series of singles and mixtapes, toured the globe supporting the likes of Coldplay, Santigold, Sleigh Bells and Justice and garnered champions from practically every tastemaker blog and magazine on both sides of the Atlantic. It's hard to believe someone so young could achieve so much. Through it all her main focus has always been on making the best possible album she could. This was made possible by working with some fantastic collaborators who helped hone her vision for a dark, emotional pop record including Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Major Lazer, Solange), Patrik Berger (Lana del Rey, Robyn) as well as hotly tipped blog favorites Blood Diamonds and J£zus Millions.

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. :)

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!

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.

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.

It was with Iggy's track "Fancy" that i sat up and took notice of Charli Xcx.....I have to admit it was based on largely on "wow whose that stunning brunette?"
Her contribution for me is what makes that song.I am not sure if Charli wrote that song but I wouldn't be surprised as she has previously proved her hit making potential with Icona Pops ubiquitous marmite like "I Love It".Both insanely catchy and annoying.
Anyway before purchasing album I watched a few of her videos the main one being You [ha ha ha]....good golly I developed a massive crush on her.
Was You [ha ha ha]a hit?If not that has to be the biggest hit single there never was.
True Romance is a great frothy,pop album with a nice lick of edge...massive wall breaking choruses.Charli is a very talented girl who has big things ahead....big star material.
I have album on now and How Can I is playing which is heavily indebted production wise to those ultra cool dungeon dwellers Salem.Love Cloud Aura,Take My Hand,Stay Away.....
Us punters have to remember [if you view this as her debut]Charli is at the beginning of her career.It surprises me how some can seem overtly critical.I suppose nowadays it's a live or die culture where an artist can be chewed up and spat out swiftly.
Lordy has anyone heard the debut albums of Blur or David Bowie?
True Romance is most certainly not of that ilk.It's a strong,sassy albumfull of attitude and displays a real talent for song writing.
And that's what it's ultimately about.I mean it helps being beautiful to look at of course.
The girl from Stevenage has done good baby.
