Editorial Reviews

It's Not Me, It's You, is the follow-up to Lily Allen's critically acclaimed 2007 debut, Alright, Still. The album finds Lily in top form, creating a record Blender's recent "In The Studio" feature described as "part God, part country and all middle finger." Allen wrote and recorded the album's 12 songs with producer Greg Kurstin (the bird and the bee), who worked with her on three songs for Alright, Still - "Everything's Just Wonderful," "Alfie" and "Not Big."

On It's Not Me, It's You, Lily's characteristically sharp observations find expression in a variety of musical styles, with influences ranging from the Jazz Era to country and western to dance music. "Highlights include `Everyone's at It,' a synth-pop song about prescription drugs that features Allen on xylophone; `He Wasn't There,' which matches emotional lyrics about her absent father to a jazz groove; and `Not Fair,' a saucy country song about an inadequate lover," said Rolling Stone.

"We decided to try and make bigger sounding, more ethereal songs, real songs," says Lily, who will be touring the U.S. in the spring. "I wanted to work with one person from start to finish to make it one body of work. I wanted it to feel like it had some sort of integrity. I think I've grown up a bit as a person and I hope it reflects that."

Customer Reviews

How great to listen to a song and 'get' every word.
Marc Cabir Davis
I love how Lily Allen is so witty and sharp, which makes her clean album a lot of fun to listen to.
Audrey Timms
Although I don't quite like this as much as her first album, it is very good.

I really disliked Lily's debut CD as I found it too cutesy for my own liking, and it was even more bewildering when publications like Spin and Blender started giving her four star reviews - it just didn't make sense. But recently, during a first spin of "The Fear", it was evident that the songstress has a certain something that transcends genre and musical definition, and curious as I was, I made it a point to pick up this album.

There are a couple of things to remember while listening to Lily Allen. She is not really a 'singer' in the true sense of the word. She sort of lazily recites words, almost reading them off a page, but her quaint intonation gives them great depth (I am reminded here of Nellie McKay and her epic double-CD "Get Away from Me"). She has this very British quality that brings to mind Leona Naess, and to a lesser extent Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes.

But its on the melodies and the lyrics that Lily really shines. Her own little view of the world, and primarily of her own self-worth is brought out beautifully through the course of the album - which also works as a 'concept' album in many ways. "The Fear" refers to various things - one could relate the lyrics to consumerism and politics and it would still make sense - but she brings down the house with her quiet burner "Chinese", which is essentially about staying in and eating food, but she spins it as some sort of allegorical tale.

What I especially respect about this album and its production is the fact that you can hear Lily enunciate every word clearly, rendering a lyrics sheet redundant. This is especially rare. The only other performer like this is Fiona Apple, and to a lesser extent Suzanne Vega, but Lily is clearly master of the medium. How great to listen to a song and 'get' every word.

I am not in Lily Allen's target audience. But I have been listening to all kinds of music for most of my 70 years.

Most singers are lucky if they ever record a perfect album where every song is excellent. In my humble opinion It's not me, it's you is that album. There is not one filler song on the entire collection. The arranging is creative, slick and could not be better. Lily's performance is mature beyond her years. It style is poignant, personal, brutal, fresh. The lyrics are simple but direct. I love her questions about god, her western send up of It's Not Fair with its biting lyrics sung so sweetly. Every song in this collection is addicting.

I read that Lily may not record again. If this is true, she will be one of the very few who quit while they were ahead. And in this case, way out in front.

I'm going to stop listening to this collection of songs now so it can always remain perfect in my mind.

This album was not a disappointment at all for me.

I adored the first album: the pop-folksy feel, the sense of humor, the candid lyrics--all with catchy upbeat tunes!

Don't quite have the new one memorized but it lives up to all my hopes and surpassed them in some noted cases (like "Him"!) She's a little more grown up and a little more produced in this album, but it's never too much. She retained the sense of humor and happy feeling. I love it!

Then 21 yr old shot out of nowhere in 2006 with her delicious debut album "Alright, Then" in the UK, with multiple hit singles. After much delay (to the dismay of Lily Allen), the second album finally arrived in early 2009.

"It's Not Me, It's You" (12 tracks; 43 min.) starts of with a riveting "Everyone's At It" (my favorite song on the album, actually). It is followed by an equally great "The Fear" (1st UK single), and "Not Fair" (2nd UK single, not an obvious choice from my perspective as there are other stronger tracks). Other highlights include a rocking "Never Gonna Happen" (which sounds like another single to me), "Who'd Have Known" (one of the few pensive tunes on the album, but quite beautiful actually), and the closer "He Wasn't There".

In all, this is a great album, and at 43 min. it clips along in no time. Lily Allen surely is not a one-album wonder, if anyone had such thoughts after her debut album. Highly recommended!

Overall Grade: B+
Hilights: Everyone's At It, The Fear, Not Fair, Never Gonna Happen, F*** You, Chinese

Lily Allen is back, and still shameless. "It's Not Me, It's You" is a brilliant sophomore record that combines silly romantics and societal views with her usual brutal honesty and cynicism. While upbeat, fun, and slightly intoxicating, Allen's focus has shifted into a bit of broader and more serious thinking (as evident in the album's opening track, "Everyone's At It"). Still, she could care less what anybody thinks. "F*** You" is a whimsical biggot basher and "Chinese" is just too cute! Fans of her first album should eat this right up.

You wont be disappointed. As usual its a mixture of songs that will make you laugh, bob your head to, dance to, and look around to see if anyone can hear the lyrics outloud your singing...because a few of them will make some eyebrows raise!

I am new to the art of Lily Allen. I just discovered her a month ago, but have fallen into her grip more than any other artist has been able to do for a long time. This CD is 100% great all the way through. No fillers. No duds.

Lily Allen song
Could you explain a bit more? I think I am pretty Lily Allen savvy. Do you know any more lyrics? You are certain it's Lily Allen? Where did you hear the song?
