It’s Not Me It’s You by Lily Allen – Album Review
by Matt Callard
Although irksomely disowning joyful and bouncy debut album, Alright Still, as immature (hey Lily, we like pop music!), despite it spawning a host of imitators (remember that awful summer of Kate Nash?) and aside from the fact that this new album contains a six-months-too-late piece of cringe-some Dubya baiting.
And even after the tiresome year-long joust with the tabloids and rehab, Lily Allen remains our finest proper pop star.
“Golden pop sass”
Mouthy, smart, catchy – what else should pop music be?
So she’s grown up a little, but come back railing against our celebrity-obsessed culture (despite being the eye of that particular hurricane), sticking the knife in to rubbish blokes (there’s a lot of ’em about) and generally appealing to any smart females (and the odd male) under 50 with a penchant for golden pop sass.
