  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 »

    Genius pop music and one of the most pleasant-sounding albums I have ever heard. Just sunny, sassy, British pop music. LDN is one of the Top 5 best pop songs of the 2000s, in my opinion. One of my favorite albums ever, actually. Yeah, it's good. Full Review »

    This is ok. Sme songs are better than others and I particularly liked the lyrics to 'Friend of Mine', The main reason I bought the album ,though, was for the track entitled 'Littlest Things' Which sets the beautiful main theme from the 1974 film 'Emmanuelle' to lyrics. I am somewhat amazed that permission was granted to do this. Full Review »
