    Ultimately, Working Girl plays like Little Boots' own biopic, a cinematic feminist synth-pop manifesto set to a pulsing Giorgio Moroder-esque soundtrack.

    There are motivational numbers such as Get Things Done, with its great elastic-bass hook. But more often Hesketh is in the trenches.

    It's a rather bloodless and oddly dated set. [Aug 2015, p.76]

    It packs a selection of nagging tunes that could easily light up the mainstream as, say, the Pet Shop Boys once did, if rave-ified R&B didn’t exert such a stranglehold on the charts.

    Working Girl isn’t the sleekest of albums but the stumbles and scrapes that Little Boots overcomes are a testament to her desire for change.

    With a few exceptions, she just sounds bored. [Aug 2015, p.93]

    Her EP "Business Pleasure" was slightly boring and unexpected by the same artist known for dance-pop hits like Remedy & co. Luckily, theHer EP "Business Pleasure" was slightly boring and unexpected by the same artist known for dance-pop hits like Remedy & co. Luckily, the unedited tracks balance perfectly the musical equilibrium of the overall album, creating a unique, magnetic charm thanks to the masterful combination of suggestiveness between lyrics and used synth.

    This a great collection of connected songs not only about work day life, but also metaphors representing human relationships. Little Boots isThis a great collection of connected songs not only about work day life, but also metaphors representing human relationships. Little Boots is not afraid of showing vulnerability in the lyrics. 'No Pressure' and 'Heroine' definetely worth a listen. If I were the boss of this working girl I'd promote her. Expand

Maybe. Expand
