Biography

Back in July 2007, a month before her debut album, Made of Bricks, was released in the UK two months ahead of schedule due to public demand, Kate Nash took a moment to contemplate her new whirlwind life as a pop star: "I feel normal. But quite cool. I feel like an outsider who's just sneaked in..."

Kate had just turned 20 and her career was on fast forward: in the summer of ... Read more in Amazon's Kate Nash Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 sophomore album from the British singer/songwriter. Coming off of her world-wide platinum debut album, Made Of Bricks, Kate Nash brings us her second masterpiece, My Best Friend Is You. From the first lines of the ebullient opener 'Paris', it is apparent that Miss Nash has made the transition from bedroom blogger and ing‚nue to young woman on a mission. The song and the album are all at once classic Nash but it is quite clear that though the redhead still smells like teen spirit, now there are definite and fragrant top notes of the woman she is growing into. She has maintained her unique, anglo-pop sound, but taken it to the next level on this album with the help of producer Bernard Butler (Duffy, Aimee Mann).

I usually skip this one.

I know artists change with each cd they put out but i do not like this change, I am still a fan of kate nash and hope her next cd is much better.
Angie
The CD is taken up with too much of her "silly" "edgy" songs.

First things first; I think that Kate's debut album `Made of Bricks' is one of the smartest and more well rounded albums I own. It is witty and charming and unique and all around lovable and I continually listen to it for days on end without ever getting tired of it. I've been highly anticipating this album since first hearing `Mouthwash' since I was determined to own everything that Nash released. Overall, this sophomore album is certainly inspiring and original and engaging and just plain fun. It is NOT as good as her debut, but expecting her to blow us away twice in a row is kind of unrealistic. There are some low points here, but her creativity is present on nearly every song and so she should be applauded for `going there'.

Like one reviewer already mentioned; Kate Nash has guts, and she isn't afraid to expose them.

Spreading her natural cheeriness all over this album with newfound influences that range from 60's surfer-girl rock to folk to punk rock, `My Best Friend is You' is certainly full of lots of goodies.

I'll start with the good.

The first big "wow" (for me) came from `Kiss That Grrrl', the song that professes explicit warning for her man to `stay away from that other chick'. I have become smitten with V.V. Brown as of late, and this whole surfer rock influence becoming modern feel is just really exciting to me (I absolutely love that movie `That Thing You Do' for the sheer fact that it makes me smile, and this music in general has that same affect on me). You couple `Kiss That Grrl' with the ferociously explosive `Do-Wah-Doo' (oh, you WILL be singing along) and you have two very capable and engaging reasons to run out and buy this album.

When she released her debut "Made of bricks" in 2007, comparisons were made between Kate Nash and fellow Brit Lily Allen, especially as both found initial fame online, Allen's plugging of Nash, as well as the British-sounding Pop both produced.

While Allen headed in a more Electro Pop direction for her sophomore, Nash has hooked up with producer Bernard Butler (Duffy, Sharleen Spiteri), and the sound this time is sixties Pop/Rock and girl groups like the Shirelles or Shangri-Las; jangling/chiming guitars, brass, strings, and lushly layered harmonies. The hand clap-filled "Paris", the incredibly catchy "Kiss that grrrl" ("I bet she doesn't like to eat, I bet her feet don't even stink" she sings about some girl she's afraid is about to snatch her guy), "Don't you want to share the guilt" (with a subtle acoustic intro and coda with a verbose stream), the Phil Spector-ish lead-off single "Do-wah-doo", and the lovely "Later on" (in which she declares "I used my body and his desperation") best epitomise this.

Her arcebic wit is still very much on display, and a few songs, "Early Christmas present", and the acoustic ballad "I hate seagulls" (in which she declares her dislike for just about everything), are nearest in sound to her debut, though there is no Dance/Pop like "Pumpkin soup" or "S*** song". Hidden at the end is the brief acoustic title track, inspired she says by her grandparents who have been married for 57 years.

"My Best Friend Is You" is Kate Nash's follow-up to her 2008 debut record, "Made of Bricks." I was a bit curious to what direction Kate would take on the new record. "Made of Bricks" was a such an enjoyable record with its fun lyrics, Kate's Cockney accent, beats, and playful piano melodies. It was a tough act to follow.

After listening to "My Best Friend Is You" for the first time, I have to say I wasn't disappointed! Several songs grabbed me immediately whereas a few required more listens. As for the tone of the record, Kate goes retro with sounds reminiscent of 60s pop. The piano is present but not as dominant as it appeared in her debut record. Kate also plays around with the reverb effect giving the songs a haunting quality to it. As for the lyrics, it is mostly about Kate's insecurities and her disappointments with men, despite being in a supposedly happy relationship. However, if you've been scorned by love, then you will find a bit of solace in Kate's rants. Some folks have commented on her sometimes screaming lyrics but that is the punk influence coming through the record. In my opinion, this is managed well because it adds to the intensity of the song but her vocals are not in-your-face because it doesn't overpower the music.

Overall, a great follow-up record. I don't find myself comparing it to her first record. Instead, I see it as an addition to her excellent repertoire. I hope she continues down her musical path.

Track by Track Guide:

Paris: Great opener to the record! Classic Nash with a catchy piano melody and chorus (you never listen to me) with interjecting orchestral strings.

Kiss That Grrl: An introduction to the 60s pop sound. Great beat!

Don't You Want To Share The Guilt?: Excellent Song!
