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.

With "Alright, Still" this Mockney-mouthed young lady leads us on a comprehensive tour of our own lives, from the infuriating queues at nightclubs on the reggae-ish "Friday Night" ("It's quarter past eleven now and we won't get in til quarter to") to the awkward sleaziness of a night on the pull through "Knock `Em Out" ("....and no you can't have my number, because I lost my phone. Can't knock `em out, can't walk away, desperately try to think of the politest thing to say.")

Superficially sunny-sounding first single "LDN" deals with the downside of city life and the need for forced positivity ("The sun is in the sky, why would I want to be anywhere else? But when you look with your eyes...").

Downright derogatory but hilariously blunt "Not Big" (no prizes for guessing what that one's about) makes it into the female consciousness as the ultimate revenge anthem, but even at her most cruel Lily retains her quick-witted cool. Then, just when you thought that Lily had it in for everyone, she reveals her softer side on `Littlest Things', an actually quite touching break-up tune that will strike a chord with anyone who has obsessed over an ex - "I remember when you started calling me your missus, all the play fighting, all the flirtatious disses."

In a world where who you know is far more relevant than any personal attribute, it wouldn't be entirely unfair to assume that being actor Keith Allen's little girl has helped Lily along on her path to fame

But it is only necessary to listen to this debut for five minutes to see that Lily is not one to passively accept her position in any situation.

When it comes to pop artists, female vocalists tend to be the ones who are most closely scrutinized. Look at Britney Spears. Look at Ashlee Simpson. And then quickly look away, because chances are Lily Allen will be more than sufficient to distract you. And any scrutiny that would be thrown her way could only be in bewilderment that she's had the experiences she's had, having only recently hit the age of 21.

Through her lyrics it's clear that she's had enough adult experience by now to be able to create songs with some substance behind them. Her experiences don't appear to have all been positive--in fact, have any?--but her devil-may-care attitude has led her to a place of somewhat forced optimism and nonchalance, more than likely for the sake of her sanity. As a result, her extremely healthy sarcastic wit is fantastic and abundant on this album, each of the songs shining brightly because of it. In "LDN," she turns a blind eye to the horrors of city life; in both "Friday Night" and "Friend of Mine," she's clearly dealing with the conflicts that can be evident between clashing young women; and "Not Big" and "Littlest Things" (one and the same, perhaps?) speak of the horrors of relationships gone sour. Even family issues are not immune, as laid out in "Alfie," a story apparently about her deadbeat brother.

Sonically, this album is quite an anomaly, since at first it may seem to be just your typical pop-dance record, something easily dismissed, however given a chance the typical listener will be completely blown away by how catchy the songs are, and how easily they can get stuck in his or her head. The music is great for dancing, great for driving, great for everything really, and should definitely be consumed at high volume.

Standout tracks are: "LDN," "Smile," "Littlest Things," and "Friday Night." Guaranteed to get you moving.

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on March 6 2007
Format: Audio CD
Alright Still is a most appealing collection of quality pop songs infused with wit and humour. There are lots of catchy hooks and lilting reggae rhythms and the music is interspersed with appropriate samples that give it extra depth. The streetsmart lyrics are clever and engaging, especially on a track like Smile. Lily is obviously one tough girl who takes no nonsense from anybody, least of all an ex lover. My favourite song on Alright Still is LDN, a tuneful song about life in the big city. Knock 'Em Out is another highlight, a very catchy number with clever lyrics and samples. Other memorable tracks include Alfie and Friday Night. The music is an appealing blend of pop, hip-hop and ska/reggae and the lyrics are quite risque in places. Allright Still is a brilliant album of rhythmic pop songs with lots of attitude.

Super-catchy! I was hooked the first time I saw her video on MuchMusic. Her songs are great fun and a delight to the ears. The beats are wonderful, the lyrics are clever and make you gasp and giggle, and she is very talented. Step out of the norm and in to alternative awesomeness. Not a manufactured, rail-thin dumb blonde, but rather a unique, real girl! Highly recommended, this is a great CD. Try to not hum "Alfie" all day long!

This is pop music with bouncy infectious beats, but Allen's realistic use of the f-word and the honesty and sarcasm of her lyrics about things like her own inability to get a mortgage and the seedy underside of London's touristy facade makes this album guilt-free for those of us who usually steer away from the more formulaic mainstream pop. She's Gwen Stefani for alt music lovers. Very fun album.
