  • Summary: This debut album from the British singer (and daughter of actor Keith Allen) mixes pop with ska and reggae.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 22 out of 27
  2. Negative: 1 out of 27
  1. Allen has fused together a uniquely acidic brand of pop, and the icing on the cake is that brutally barbed tongue.

    Only two songs ring false. [Feb/Mar 2007]
  3. Like Blondie circa 1981, Allen breathes needed fresh air into the game.
  4. The music deliberately sits somewhere between glossy and unobtrusive. It shimmers enough to mask Allen's tepid singing voice but remains far enough away to allow her largest asset -- her snappy personality -- to take charge.
  5. As much of a cliché as it is, you're either going to love Allen or hate her.
  6. Enough of Alright, Still works -- as pure pop and on the meta level Allen aims for -- to make the album a fun, summery fling, and maybe more.
  7. Alright Still is nothing more than pop for people who hate pop music, poptimist Quorn, phony music for people who can't let go of their inhibitions (indie-bitions?) and have to have their music classified as REAL.

    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! Collapse

    Not as good as her earlier work. Just kidding. I just wanted to use the most common phrase on this website. A thrilling mess of talent.

    I laughed a lot with this album. Lily just explores things through other points of view. She's literal: she doesn't need to say what sheI laughed a lot with this album. 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! Expand

    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. Expand
