    8/10 - "[I'm] prouder, frankly, when this likable size 12 lets her voice crack all over the big fat scarewords "feminist" and "sexism" on an album that gets dissed for its simplistic songwriting as if that wasn't the point" - Expert Music (MSN Music)

    The album is really not all that different from her previous two. Yes, Nash incorporate a lot more punk elements and a heavy focus on guitar but really, the lyrics and the catchy pop hooks haven't changed a bit. The album is solid mostly all the way through with a couple mistakes along the way (Rap for Rejection and Lullaby). Overall, she did a phenomenal job this being her third album andThe album is really not all that different from her previous two.

    By far her best album. She has refined her image into a punk rocker rather than a quirky girl next door. The gutar riffs, lyrics and her vocals are striking. A must listen.

    Girl Talk has a lot of positives and negatives. It's good to see her evolving and transmitting a message though music. Although I prefer the "old Kate Nash" musically, I have to recognize it. About the negatives, it's really sad to see her decaying as she tries to look like something that's not her. Nevertheless this was a nice record, with good songs mostly.
    Best tracks: Sister, All

    Best tracks: Sister, All Talk, Labyrinth, Lullaby for an Insomniac (and Mermaid Blue from the deluxe edition).
    Worst tracks: Oh, Rap for Rejection.

    Nash can't sing or rap--she tries to do both--and her tunes are anemic; her punk postures are borrowed from musicians smarter and more talented than she.

    Much of this third album comes on like a bubblegum Breeders, sparsely arranged around Nash's spinal basslines. [Apr 2013, p.107]
