    Good...but not great...and not anything close to a masterpiece, despite what some reviewers/hype-bloggers have been saying. I'd heard Smile on TV a few times here and there, and liked it, but it was really LDN that did it for me. This song is like a pop lover's wet-dream, so of course I loved it, but the rest of the album is kinda dissapointing. It's not necessarily bad at Good...but not great...and not anything close to a masterpiece, despite what some reviewers/hype-bloggers have been saying. I'd heard Smile on TV a few times here and there, and liked it, but it was really LDN that did it for me. This song is like a pop lover's wet-dream, so of course I loved it, but the rest of the album is kinda dissapointing. It's not necessarily bad at all...in fact...it's really listenable and all the songs are well-arranged and clever...they just all blend into each other. None of the melodies (besides LDN and Smile) really stick in your head afterwards and despite the overall happy-vibe of the album, it just didn't stick. Like I said, I can't actually find fault with any specific songs, due to the fact I couldn't tell them apart. The whole thing just kinda dragged and bored me (and it's only like 35 minutes long!!). I would recommend waiting for this CD cheap in your local used CD shop until you buy. Expand

    Why do we have to be subjected to another talentless Brit Pop waste of space. I wouldn't buy this even if it were the last album on the face of the planet

    Smells a little too much of major record label involvement to be the 'real thing'. She signed her record deal with EMI in 2005, which takes all of the truth out of her coming through myspace. Oh well, we always get the pop music we deserve

    I'll give it to her, she has a good voice. But the music is so overproduced and the lyrics vapid. Sorry, I don't get it.

  1. Lyrically, Allen spins the street-slang tales of blowjobs and booze told with varying success by everyone from The Streets to Shampoo.
  2. Sheâ??s funky, confident and fun, and thatâ??s just on the first song.
  3. For now, it's way more than a stop-gap but sadly not the second coming you might have been hoping for.
