    With its onus on hooks, the result is an enjoyable, lightweight pop album. [May 2011, p.104]

    Together they make efficient, likeable, club-friendly pop, with the house numbers less memorable than her drum and bass leanings.

    Her casual observations on club life and love life tumble over each other with a light, mischievous touch that's refreshingly free of grating attitude.

    Sadly beyond these two standouts ["Perfect Stranger" and "Katy On A Mission"], Brien's album swiftly degenerates into faceless Top Shop dance-pop filler. [Apr 2011, p.75]

It manages to translate the club ambient into the pop music world without getting hollow or common, but dazzling and funny. She has her own words and ways to make dubstep/electro-pop, as it shows in 'Broken Record', 'Witches Brew' and 'Katy on a mission', this last one combining some R&B and 'Bjorkism'. It's a freshness never seen before, and she's paving her way to the top. Full Review »
