  • Summary: Not the "Breakfast at Tiffany's character, rather the British singer returns with her second album with Lawyer Dave as Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs.

    It's not much different (from their first album), and that's no bad thing with Holly Golightly and Lawyer Dave's self-produced duets recalling Leadbelly and Jimmy Reed, as well as the gospel recordings of Loretta Lynn and Nancy & Lee. [Nov 2008, p.109]
  2. 80
    Sounds alarmingly authentic to boot. [Nov 2008, p.102]

    The ballads tend to turn murky, but the rockers are terrifically drunken reveries.
  4. Dirt Don't Hurt isn't necessarily magical, but it is fun and breezy, as well as a nice addition to Golightly's impressive catalog.
  5. It's still a heartily ramshackle affair, with pots and pans for percussion, rudimentary banjo picking, and what sound like first take on every track. The album's clattery rawness is its chief appeal.
