The Needle Drop
Poppy's debut album is a good collection of pop songs, but doesn't quite live up to her unique Internet personality.

Alright: so I like this record. I'd never heard of Poppy before this record – never heard of her YouTube channel, who she is, or her overall purpose – but on first listen, I immediately thought two things: Poppy is an art project commenting on contemporary obsessions with computers, the Internet and Internet fame that employs pop clichés or it's a completely shallow, unaware pop record. Thankfully, it's the former. On my second listen, "Poppy.Computer" revealed ... read more

some of the use of guitars is really awkward, at times it can be painfully cringey, but the overall sense of playfulness and fun is just too potent to resist with some of these hooks/grooves. overall it's more of that kero kero bonito/carly rae jepsen style pop music, which is definitely a love it or hate it kind of genre, but despite this being a frustratingly inconsistent album, there's enough quality here to stop me from being too mad at it.

Favs: Computer Boy and Interweb.

Best Tracks: I'm Poppy, Let's Make A Video, Computer Boy
Worst Tracks: My Microphone

The label for this record is Mad Decent, and that is quite literally how I would describe this latest effort by Poppy. Catchy pop songs with a technological twist. Software Upgrade is probably my personal favorite of the selections here. The unfortunate side to this album is that the album does not really reflect the atmosphere or the allure of the personality of Poppy...however, with the preceding EP, Bubblebath, it didn't really explore this side of Poppy much either (which I suppose is the ... read more
