Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Being, as she is, the daughter of prominent British actor Keith Allen, the cynics could easily dismiss the rise of Lily Allen as an act of backroom nepotism, a talent-free starlet helped to the stage by the right connections. But one listen to her debut album Alright, Still dispels any doubts about young Ms. Allen's star quality. Possessed of a feisty wit and taste for urban storytelling that should see her compared to Mike "The Streets" Skinner, these 11 tracks of sunshine-friendly reggae-pop cover topics including frustrating potential closing-time suitors ("Knock 'Em Out"), being happy when your ex is having a bad time ("Smile"), and having a little brother who likes a bit of a smoke--and not just of the tobacco variety ("Alfie"). Wisely, however, Allen doesn't let the grittiness of the subject matter tarnish the golden pop suss of the songs, a suite of gleaming productions by names including Mark Ronson and Gwen Stefani collaborator Greg Kurstin that take inspiration from the lighter end of reggae and vintage rocksteady. Doubtless some corners of the press will pillory her as a poor role model, but there's an engaging honesty to the likes of "LDN"--a love song to a city filled with teenage muggers, pimps, and crack whores, narrated by someone who's cycling because "the filth took away my license." Like father, like daughter. --Louis Pattison

Product Description

US version features two bonus tracks, 'Alfie' and 'Nan You're a Window Shopper' along with an enhanced U-MYX component. Debut album by this critically adored British female pop vocalist. 11 tracks including the single 'Smile'. It's been a whirlwind couple of months for Lily Allen. After signing a low key deal with Regal, late last year, no one could have predicted how quickly she'd make an impression on the nation. Lily, like many artists, started posting tracks on her Myspace site in November 2005, so she could gauge what people thought. The response has been phenomenal. Listens on her Myspace site now are staggering, over 2 million and rising. The support from the press, radio and TV has been fantastic. She is already a 'red top' favorite with her honesty and sharp tongue, but also has fans across the digital world and within cult publications. EMI. 2007. * Explicit Version.

After the hyped release of "Smile", Lily Allen emerges in the music scene with an album to be remembered as one of the best debuts ever in British pop music.

"Alright Still" features some of the songs Lily has uploaded in her MySpace page, giving her the credit of being one the first mainstream acts to make use of social networking.

In a 37 minute album, the singer mixes pop, indie, ska, reggae and hip hop in songs with great potential to become singles.

Besides catchy and bitchy "Smile", highlights in "Alright Still" include the MySpace hit "LDN", whose lyrics and video are dedicated to London, "Alfie" lyrically funny and genious (inspired in her real little brother Alfie), the informal bizarre "Knock 'Em Out", which features lyrics that were used as the title of the album.

Lyrically Lily proves to be a contemporary poet, mixing meaningful messages with stupid jokes and informal slangs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lily Allen: One Of The Best Pop Album Released This Year September 3, 2006
By MJ
Format:Audio CD
Allegedly, Lily Allen's newfound popularity is partly due to a certain website, which has become immensely popular within the last couple of years. Lily Allen's material received enormous feedback and was allegedly downloaded over 1 million times! Not bad for an unknown artist. However, Lily Allen has managed to land herself a top 10 spot on the UK album chart with the album Alright, Still. Yet my familiarity with the impertinent Lily Allen began with the tune Smile which was constantly being played on Danish radio. Her direct lyrics had me fascinated and as I stumbled upon her album in a second-hand music store I did not hesitate by buying the album immediately.

The album opens with the humorous Smile, showing the appeal of Lily Allen: her straightforward and non-nonsense lyrics. Unlike many other mainstream artists, Lily Allen makes no use of sugar-coating her points. Smile is a playful hymn with a catchy refrain and will surely appeal to anyone, who has been deceived and dumped by their boyfriend, now seeking revenge over his `crimes'. Knock `Em Out is one of album's best offering. The up-tempo song is sharp and on point as Lily Allen bursts out `No you can't have my number/'Coz I lost my phone'. The reggae-inspired LDN, allegedly the first single off the album, is a tale of the ups and downs of the city life, revealing that everything is not as peachy as it seems. The lyrics of Alright, Still are permeated with irony and sarcasm, which are quite refreshing and create a different atmosphere, while listening to the album. Everything's Just Wonderful is an example of the sarcasm, which Lily Allen and her follow writers employ in terms of the lyrics On Alright, Still. Up next is the hard-hitting Not Big, referring to the size of her ex-boyfriend.

I first saw Lily Allen on a Mark Ronson video with her posing as a cartoon Roger Rabbit style, and I thought to myself, this girl is different creative and unique. Then she featured in Common's "Drivin me Wild" video and I was asking myself do this artist have an album yet? Well, late(as usual) I discovered that she did have an album because I saw two of her own videos on Havoc TV. Those videos were "Smile" and "LDN" and I was blown away. She has a merry-go-roundish type pop, but hip-hop, with a little dash of sing-a-long join hands and dance around in circles type vibe that I became so addicted, I watched the videos over and over again. So I was going to go get the album when I discovered my own sister (which music range isn't as deep as mine) knew and had the album way before I found out about this album. (Of course I was furious, but I had to snatch it up and listen).

Great music, great production from Mr. Ronson. "Knock em Out" and gameshow sounding "Everythings Just Wonderful" has Lily talking about having bad credit, family members smoking weed, etc, this girl has issues if you get past her melodic high vocals and listen to the lyrics. My personal favorites are "Friday Night" the addictive but creative "Shame For You", and hands down the best song on the album with its light synth and heavy keys "Take What You Take", yeah that's the title, Lily Allen really stretches out and shows her true vocal skills. She even does a little rapping on the album which doesn't sound bad either. "Nan You're A Window Shopper" she sounds better than 50 cent's version and a little more threatning too (sorry Fiddy)!! To nick pick, "Alfie" gets lost in the shuffle, but Lily comes hard with a stellar debut album and looking forward to hearing more from this strange genius!!

4 stars. The Brit sensation!!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's bright, she's brassy and... she's British! November 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite and most fun buys of 2006. Daughter of actor and comedian Keith Allen, Lily is a breath of fresh air to a music scene that takes itself way too seriously and has allowed itself to grow stale in the process. One newspaper critic described her voice as "as thin as a supermodel's ankle" but you know what? It doesn't matter! She's fun!

"Smile" was a number 1 hit for here here in the UK earlier in the year and while subsequent releases haven't fared so well, the album is packed with fun tunes. She captures the essence of inner-city young female angst pefectly. Some of my personal favourites (apart from "Smile") are:

"Knock 'Em Out", where she sings about being hassled by boys she's not interested in. ("Not in a million years," she sings, which always makes me hoot).

"LDN", where she describes the urban decay she sees all around her but, like many inner-city Londoners, wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

"Everything's Just Wonderful", which has a truly beautiful chorus.

"Not Big", where she slags off an ex-boyfriend. As you do.

"Littlest Things", a song about feeling lonely after the end of a relationship and reminiscing about the good days.

and "Take What You Take", where she tells "old" people to shut up, mind their own business and stop offering advice. That's me told then.

But in truth, I like all the songs. Her lyrics are not only humourous but very insightful. I like Lily's spunkyness and I especially love the fact that she hasn't done what so many British singers have done and still do, i.e. try to sing like an American. Good on her. A friend of mine thinks this is what the Specials would be doing if they were still around (and had a female vocalist).

Tell me about it Angelica! Her music is sweet yet gritty, hip, and swanky and I just love the Ska back-beats and the Hip-hop undertone yet she makes it all sound though as she created it.
