Lily Allen: It’s Not Me, It’s You is a musically intriguing little pop confection with a slightly intellectual core. Sometimes when Ms. Allen gets up too high on her horse the songs fall flat, but for the most part she leaves sociological observations left to those who can actually do it and just observes her world to very best of her ability, which in most cases is excellent. Recommended songs: “The Fear,” “Not Fair,” “22,” “Never Going to Happen,” “Fuck You.”
I was going to talk about Different Class and This Is Hardcore by Pulp but I’ll have to get back to you on those two. Excellent albums though, really glad I gave them a listen.
