    This debut switches effortlessly from r&b ballads to punchy rap tunes. With her big voice and ballsy attitude, is she Ilford's very own Pink?

    Jessie's outside-the-box persona gets buried under maximalist production and mainstream themes like bullying ("Who's Laughing Now"), girl power ("Do It Like a Dude"), and materialism (the sunny "Price Tag," a No. 1 single in the U.K.). But hope springs in the gorgeously paranoid ballad "Big White Room."

    She'll no doubt weather criticism for such a broad palette, and for a debut called Who You Are, it certainly doesn't shed any definitive light on its maker's artistic identity.

    On her debut full-length, the 22-year-old songwriter (see Miley Cyrus' "Party in the U.S.A.") nails a variety of roles: crotch-grabbing punker, '70s soul diva, Kelly Clarkson–style bellower.

'Do It Like a Dude', 'Price Tag' and the Brit Award for 'Critics Choice' led many people to expect something great, but what they got was something rather different. Vocal showboating and pointless 'quirky' lyrics do not make for a great album. Full Review »
