Dork

‘Bullseye’ is bold and bigger than life, covering all bases while still giving the impression that there’s even more to come — a perfect debut record.

Gigwise

Bullseye is undoubtedly one of the greatest debuts of the year. With complex lyricism and emotive instrumentation, it’s the perfect accompaniament for late nights, early mornings, and those days where nothing quite seems certain.

The Line of Best Fit

Bullseye is such a strong debut album from the still relatively underground Charli Adams. It has the maturity and musicality of someone beyond her years and is a promising indication of what’s to come down the line.

‘Bullseye’ is a strikingly effective balance between genuine, dejected commentary and a biting indie-pop energy – it’s an album that tries on rose-tinted glasses, acknowledges their misguided impact on perception and finally throws them away, moving forward with tranquil joy and drive.

Beats Per Minute

She’s definitely got the chops to write a passingly pleasing song, and her tracks will fit in nicely on a post-breakup playlist amid artists of a similar downtrodden nostalgia pop type. But, taken in as its full 38 minutes, the album it becomes almost sickly.

A perfect blend of relatable narratives and soft indie rock melodies, Charli Adams debut album Bullseye is a pretty beautiful listen from start to finish. Very cohesive with her smooth vocals, verging on 80’s beats at times which I am always here for.

Been a fan of Charli since her incredible EP Good At Being Young so this album is defo a great start for her debut. This album feels very nostalgic, perhaps reminding me of my time growing up, reminiscent of the summers off school staying ... read more

It was a lovely listen of indie-pop goodness that dips its toes in the Country genre but not too much. It's a perfect blend of sincerity and love ballads that I very much enjoyed for a debut. Can't wait to see what else is in store.

It is an enjoyable and a chill listen, but there is nothing in here to come back to, everything about it is average, from the songwriting, to the production, vocals and themes.
