Normcore queen delivers on her debut album. Though half of the album had already been released, it's still a really fun and enjoyable debut. Great production and vocals with her signature explosive sound and some really unexpected tracks. I still wish 'High Five' made it on her album
Faves: Strangers, In Vain, Business Dinners

I expected this to be a really generic project... and it was. But that doesn't really matter because this album is fun and it's full of danceable tracks. Much more fun than something like Maggie Rogers 2019 album

I am pretty surprised; this album is a solid and well-made debut! Sigrid has an ear for stadium-ready pop and a pleasant singing voice. At times she leans a little generic, but there are enough fun bops that I enjoy the entire record. She sounds like she would be a fun performer to watch; her confidence makes the overly anthemic bops more convincing than I was expecting. Sigrid's bravado is infectious, and she partners her fun personality with dynamic synths for a surprisingly resonant listen. ... read more

You know, I actually enjoyed this. The album is pretty fun and joyful.
And it's a pop record that has unique production and very catchy songs, those aspects that held my attention to the very end.

Stunning debut album, Sigrid hits a level of pop excellence that a lot of pop stars are aiming to have!

I very rarely find myself singing along to every single track on an album. Sigrid’s ability to write catchy hooks is astounding and there are lots of fresh pop elements sprinkled throughout the production of the album to keep it interesting. After three listens I can actually say that I found this record to be exceptional. It is everything I want out of a pop record. I am going to be bopping the majority of these songs for the next few months!

The lyrical themes were a tad generic and I ... read more

While I think it can be very easy and tempting to dismiss Sigrid as just another overproduced, pristinely groomed pop star designed to appeal to the masses, what I think Sucker Punch lacks in originality, Sigrid makes up for in bold performances and a tasteful selection of instrumentals that celebrates the hallmarks of contemporary electropop, even though it might not push the envelope the genre.

I'm not entirely blown away by this project but I could see it growing on me over time. Sigrid clearly is a talented musician with room to develop those talents, but overall these are somewhat generic if not still pleasant pop tracks. Won't land on my top of the list this year but I dug it enough.

Favorite track: Level Up

Gavin breaks Zach's heart NO. 17

Albums on this style of dance and electropop remind me of my enjoyment of sugary cereal. I get a rare and intense crave every 6 months or so and I go buy a small box. I pour exactly one bowl and then I give the rest of the box to my sisters as I contemplate if mini wheats was a better choice.

It really just comes down to personal preference with music like this. I've never been a big fan of things that flash in the moment. I personally enjoy things that are ... read more

"Sucker Punch" is a great debut. It's very fun, even in its sad moments.

there are some interesting elements production-wise for an electropop debut, but it remains as a flat record with flat vocals and flat melodies

Sucker Punch is an example of the next generation of pop, and I can confidently say that we are in good hands with artists like Sigrid at the helm. I understand the people who don’t want to give this album too much praise; the lyrics aren’t super deep, the content is stereotypical for a pop album, the songs are mostly formulaic in their construction (Verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus). But while the album can come across as stereotypical, I think it is ambitious and rather ... read more

"Sucker Punch" is better than I expected it to be, actually. It's a little generic and Sigrid doesn't throw any punches lyrically, but most of the hooks are excellent and the production is very fun to listen to!

I was worried about this album because after Strangers I felt as though Sigrid's music had gone a bit downhill. But I was pleasantly surprised, the album is fun and bouncy. It can be pretty cheesy in its lyrics, and at times somewhat basic in terms of production, but I can't find myself really disliking any song. All of them give me some amount of enjoyment- which is a lot more than most albums can say.

This album is amazing. I'm not really a big fan of the modern state of pop. But Sigrid is one of the best pop artists out right now who is making great and very fun pop music. A good comparison would be Maggie Rogers. They both make great and very fun pop music. This album is better than Maggie's though. This is a lot more coahesive and consistent. I love this album it is definetly the best pop album of the year so far.

Genuinely one of the more enjoyable pop records of the year, even if tracks 8-10 is the worst three track run of the year

Level up is the highlight, the rest is weak, some songs made me hate her voice and some made me love it anyhow the production sound so awful and uninspired. Is this the new Dua lipa?

This is such an enjoyable album! I mean, Sucker Punch is a really generic pop record, yet at the same time it's so much fun. Every single track on here was extremely catchy and just made me want to get up and dance, which was clearly the intention of the album. Whilst this is far from the best album this year, this was definitely one of the most fun.

What a heavy sleeper album. I didn’t expect much going into Sucker Punch but what I got was E MO TION 2. Seriously the best pop album since Melodrama IMO. Any Carly Rae Jepson fans will love this album. Almost all songs are straight BOPS

Eu acompanhava os trabalhos da Sigrid antes desse trabalho de estreia, e eu sempre comentava como ela era uma garota de muito potencial, e enfim, o "Sucker Punch" não é só um sopro refrescante no meio duvidoso em que o pop ocidental se encontra, como também um começo excepcional de carreira de alguém que vai muito longe

Loved this, maximalist pop with some real balls and kicked serious ass. Sigrid is one of the best up-and-coming popstars right now.

it sounds like MiA and Lorde combined. its ok, nothing all that memorable outside of the lead track

This album has really grown on me. I mean sure, it's full of quite cheesy pop songs but honestly it so much fun to listen to. Pretty great production, although a couple of songs like dynamite i do find to be a bit dull (Although dynamite is well written.) Overall, Sucker punch is filled with fun uplifting tunes.

Fav song: Strangers
least fav: Never mine.

A well-crafted coming of age pop record that feels fresh and anthemic. Impressive debut.

Sucker Punch delivers a fresh face on modern pop. Like other great and wonderful albums like this one (Chris, Emotion, Melodrama, etc) have a very concrete image of what is wanting to do. The lyrics are not deep, but so close that are a reminicense of the trust that songwriters put in their works and the rainbow of emotions portrayed is a great rollercoaster to get it from the very beginning to the end of this album.

Yet, is a little naive and novice to settle down a more certain way to ... read more

Sigrid's debut LP is a well-crafted collection of synthpop tunes that just cement the idea that Scandinavians just *know* how to do Pop.

a nice album to listen full of happiness and enthusiasm but I think some songs are filled and can complete the album the production is amazing but some songs are very good but others are boring
