  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.

    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.

I find this album to be super fun and has a sound that feels like a breathe of fresh air. I love the pace of the album and each song has a special place for me... plus, I find the lyrics to be genuine, which is always what I'm looking for! Full Review »

Lily just explores things through other points of view. She's literal: she doesn't need to say what she believes with metaphors, she just says what she feels with the words she feels. All tracks are catchy and lovely. Her voice is sweet, and the music is just great. I really enjoyed this album: it's hilariously good! Full Review »

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 »
