    Opening with some cheesey lines in "Intro", first impressions leave you skeptical as to what else is in store on "The Female Boss" -- then Tulisa's chart-topping "Young" kicks in. One thing that makes this album stand out from the crowd is the variety of different sounds, from ballads like "Skeletons" to urban-esque tracks like the infectious "British Swag" and "Visa". There are some sure hits on the album if dealt with correctly. With an almost perfect blend of slow and fast jams, "The Female Boss" is deserving of more praise than it has had; if only it was given the chance to be judged on the merits of the album rather than Tulisa's misjudged character, unfairly portrayed by the media. "Scream and Shout" would have earned it a deserving 10/10, if only Britney didn't take that hit from beneath her feet! A brilliant album overall -- "let's drink to it!" Expand

    I Dont think at all this albums rating should be so low it is the best album ever in my opinion, tulisa worked hard on it it was hard for her to go solo and she has made a super fantastic alum that i love and it deserves 100 if you ask me ,it is just unreal and great basically i love it.

    A lamentable debut all round.

    Tulisa struggles to get to grips with the predictably generic R&B ballads, but when the pace is upped and she shouts along to Young and the feisty M.I.A.-lite Live It Up, the personality that has turned her into a phenomenon of out times transcends her obvious limitations. [Jan 2013, p.112]

    The few redeeming moments come when she ceases her bellowing and shows a little restraint, as on the surprisingly likable Skeletons.
