    Quite possibly the worst album I've ever bought. What Happened Kate? One trick pony?

    I bought this album after the stunning debut of Kate Nash and after listening to 'My Best Friend Is You' , I've noticed how much of a waste of time it was. The album is filled to the brim with lack of lyrical content and leaves me wonder how it got such a over-exaggerated metacritic score. What happened Kate? Did you catch Difficult second album syndrome?

  1. The hit-and-miss nature of her words wouldn't be so noticeable if the music was more of a distraction. But the skittering sub-Motown fare accompanying much of this album fails to muster a chorus worth savouring.
  2. My Best Friend Is You builds on her more conventional 2008 debut, Made of Bricks, with a punchy, almost dizzying mix of garage-rock bedlam, scene-skewering snap, and sweet girl-group melodies.
  3. My Best Friend Is You hasn't got the immediate freshness of Made Of Bricks, and it can make for a disorientating, uneven listen at times. Yet it's never anything other than compelling and demonstrates that, despite what a lot of people thought when she first appeared, that Kate Nash could well be around for a good few years yet.
