    Though the album overstays some of its freshness by the closing tracks, nearly everything Winston sings up to "Sister Wife" adds an inspired spin on common pop idioms.

    While the album title suggests that Winston's talents may be less than genuine, King Con is never anything less than truly inspired.

    Winston has grown since the release of her initial 2010 EP; however, it would have been nice to hear her stray a bit from the indie-pop formula that's garnered her a following in the first place.

    It's damn smart and it's damn catchy.

    A rousing and eye-opening full-length debut.

    For the most part, though, King Con's an enjoyable collection, one that presents Winston as an artist with a strong enough personality to overcome that dip and to stand out in a scene where it can be hard to make an impression.

    It's oddly accomplished, and Winston's classical background shines through.
