  1. The female Mike Skinner? She's far, far better than that.
  2. Allen has fused together a uniquely acidic brand of pop, and the icing on the cake is that brutally barbed tongue.
  3. Only two songs ring false. [Feb/Mar 2007]
  4. A great summer record it remains, even in the dead of winter.
  5. 90
    What's amazing about Alright, Still is how similar the girl with the blog is to the girl with the hit record. [Mar 2007, p.129]
  6. Like Blondie circa 1981, Allen breathes needed fresh air into the game.
  7. 86
    A seeping, heaving summer album through and through.
  8. In terms of a debut record-- and especially given the weight of expectation placed on her to deliver something special-- Alright, Still isnâ??t anything else but a fantastic success.
  9. Sheâ??s funky, confident and fun, and thatâ??s just on the first song.

    The best of britpop began with this beautiful pin-up album from Lily Allen. 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 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 that gets on your nerves after 4 songs. Full Review »
