    For all this uncertainty, the record is incredibly assured.

    Going by the level of potential shown here, it's evident that Cara will eventually need a lot less creative assistance.

    Know It All isn’t perfect, but it’d be a challenge not to fall for even just some its charms.

    For the most part Know-It-All is a debut that allows the unfiltered voice of a refreshingly real, young star-in-the-making to shine through.

    Despite her enormous talent, Know-It-All can feel a little rushed. Fair play to want to capitalise on momentum, but artistically it would have been interesting to hear what could have been achieved with a little more time spent finding Cara's own sound, rather than mixing so many in to ten tracks.

    Too often here Cara is let down by bland arrangements and underbaked melodies, from the Swift-by-numbers of opener Seventeen to the banal balladry of Stars.

    Know-It-All has sweet spots, but doesn’t match the promise.

    Amazing album from an amazing person. For a debut, this is great, and shows a lot of potential for future albums. I would recommend this toAmazing album from an amazing person. For a debut, this is great, and shows a lot of potential for future albums. I would recommend this to anyone, because this is one of the best pop albums of the decade.

    Best Songs: Stone, River Of Tears, My Song, Here, Outlaws, Wild Things
    Worst Song: Four Pink Walls (the only reason this album isn't a 10/10)

    K-I-A is a refreshing pop album at moments, but cliche at other moments. "Outlaws" and "I'm Yours" have mostly dull lyrics, and "Stars" andK-I-A is a refreshing pop album at moments, but cliche at other moments. "Outlaws" and "I'm Yours" have mostly dull lyrics, and "Stars" and "Stone" are a bit boring. "Seventeen" shines musically with good-enough lyrics. "Here" is great vocally, musically, and especially lyrically. "Four Pink Walls" and "Wild Things" are plenty of fun, and are genuinely likable.

    The number one problem with K-I-A is that the songs get worse with each listen - they get old and lose their enjoyability the more you listen to them. I used to listen to K-I-A a good bit, but over time I got annoyed with the songs until I deleted the album. Still, K-I-A has some refreshing lyrics and enjoyable music, and is better than most pop records. I still really like "Here" and "Wild Things."
