  1. Lyrically, Allen spins the street-slang tales of blowjobs and booze told with varying success by everyone from The Streets to Shampoo.
  2. For now, it's way more than a stop-gap but sadly not the second coming you might have been hoping for.
  3. The overall effect is not dissimilar to Sugababes, only with added adult content. [Aug 2006, p.111]
  4. The production on tracks like "Shame For You" and "Alfie" is fantastic, and there are plenty of catchy melodies and clever samples, but Allen is a poser who lacks charisma, bites off of everyone else, and is so sickeningly contemptuous of everyone but herself that it makes the pretty, melancholy piano-and-drum-loop ballad "Littlest Things" seem like a farce.

She setted again the fire for the pop from the Great Britain, with different style. We get the best from her in 'Alfie', 'Smile' and 'LDN', songs that remind us from the very first beggining of the knockout of England, musically speaking. Full Review »

    I thought this album was really good! Its way different to other pop albums and Lily uses really new and unique lyrics! She also deals with I thought this album was really good! Its way different to other pop albums and Lily uses really new and unique lyrics! She also deals with issues which teens can relate to! Such as having an annoying sibling (Alfie) or finding out people arent true friends (friend of mine)! This is a must have album in my opinion! Full Review »

    Really enjoyed some of her tracks......but listening to the album straight through is a straight bore. She has this nonchalant monotone voice Really enjoyed some of her tracks......but listening to the album straight through is a straight bore. She has this nonchalant monotone voice that gets on your nerves after 4 songs. Full Review »
