"SUCKER" PRESS HIGHLIGHTS:

"Pop music has been defined this year by young women who come across as self-assured and self-directed. And, while Taylor Swift sold more records and pulled more headlines, Charli XCX (née Charlotte Aitchison) has made the year's most fabulous pop record -- in part by updating a sound and attitude that seemed near-irrelevant to the modern pop machine: punk rock."
--
NPR

"The UK singer reinvents pop punk on her loud, fun ridiculously catchy new LP"
-- Rolling Stone (4/5 star review - #6 Best Album of the Year)

"Thanks to 'Fancy' and 'Boom Clap,' Charli's voice is already among the most ubiquitous of the year. But Sucker is likely to confirm that she's one of pop's biggest new stars -- and biggest personalities."
-- Billboard (4.5/5 star lead review)

"On Sucker, Charli XCX Outdoes Her Peers.... While Sucker contains a dressing room's worth of new styles and a Top 40 playlist's worth of pop moves, Charli XCX is a smart enough songwriter to make them her own, and magnetic enough a presence to make that a winning prospect."
-- TIME

"SUCKER is pop-punk, radically redefined and dragged, middle fingers waving, into the future."
-- Entertainment Weekly (A- lead review)

"...XCX doesn't just tweak the ear-candy pop template, she blows it up, then pries the shiniest bits from the asphalt. It's still sweet once she's finished sticking it back together, but it's got a bit of crunch, too."
 
-- USA TODAY

"... perhaps the years of hard work and compositional refinement it took to reach the top helped to shape the record's uncompromising sensibility; this is an album that seeks to bend the mainstream to its will rather than conform to its reigning trends.... a bold display of self-confidence and strength of personality... operates under the premise that Charli is a viable star...."
-- PITCHFORK (7.6 mark)

"Sucker is a maximal blast, and it's out of step with the world. That's what's great about it. Every once in a while, a pop music album should come along and kick you in the dick. Lord willing, Sucker will get a chance to kick as many dicks as possible."
--
STEREOGUM ('Album of the Week')

"This was the year Charli XCX became the star she always deserved to be.... the True Romance follow-up mixes Charli's punk-lite and poppier predilections -- a vivid, pink-washed tantrum from a Ramones fan who tosses off hooks as easily as she ashes cigarettes. Three cheers for the newest British invasion."
 
-- SPIN ('50 Best Albums of the Year')
