I'm also really loving the new Charli XCX album, which continues her blend of catchy exuberance with the avant-pop of artists like SOPHIE and 100 gecs.
Yeah I like the new Charli too. I'm a fan of hers, as well as Sophie's.

Re: Moderately Acclaimed Albums 11 - Round 1.8

I listened to Fly while high, so maybe that was a contributing factor why I nominated it cos music sounds better while high. I have to listen to it again sober to fully assess.

And P4K rated it 8.7, so that's why it can be considered moderately acclaimed.
