    Héloïse Letissier brought back in time and found herself in 90's pop era. When she embraced reality, she also embraced her new persona for being stronger (but still, as a human being). Fierce and dominant, demented, and ultimately transformed her into Chris.

    The funky beats and heavy vocal range of Héloïse turn this album into a beautiful, dancey trackway
    pushing boundaries of sexuality, gender roles and self doubt.

    Another magnificent album by the French artist. "Chris" offers the best of both worlds, with deep ballads similar to her debut album "Christine and the Queens" and refreshing 80s synth-pop songs to dance along to, this album definitely belongs to the best of this year.

    Best tracks: The walker (La marcheuse), Goya Soda, Feel So Good and Make some sense.

    Chris is a flawless collection of songs. I'm already quite sure it will be my favourite album of the year.

    Mediocre dance pop in French. Downright bland dance pop in English. Not terrible, but definitely not as good as the critic reviews would make you think.

    Everything from the upbeat 80s throwback production to the honest and sincere lyricism makes this album a wonderful and outstanding must-listen. This excellent work of art is definitely one of the accolades of 2018. Travail bien fait, Héloïse! Cet album est magnifique et spectaculaire!

    Em geral, "Chris" é um ótimo álbum funk e pop. Heloise Letissier é uma cantora fantástica e a sua voz funciona perfeitamente com o álbum e com a sua vibe envolvente.

    Quite overrated. It's fun, it's pop. Not experimental, not adventurous. Most definitely not original.

    Her dance-pop and funky synth-pop easily parallels the intrigue of her brawny lyrics and though she may feel frustration from the record’s narrative being solely steered towards her pansexuality, new short hairdo or the record’s relevant themes in the wake of #MeToo, let it be known that this is one of the finest pop works of the year.

    The best songs on Chris are the outliers, the ones that are either fully intellectually-engaging or completely poppy. The songs in the middle, that plainly try to balance between the two, only underwhelm because of how common they feel.

    The album spills over with Letissier's confidence and individuality, something she felt wasn't the case during early writing sessions with Mark Ronson and Damon Albarn, so they were cast aside.
