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.

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.
