I didn't like her voice when I first heard her but once you get past that she's got some really great lyrics. Some of it's a little hard to understand at first because of British slang, but it really grows on you.

Best songs are Random, Love Me or Hate Me, Tango and Hoodie which is about the law in England that says you can't wear hoodies in public places.

Love her or hate her, I love her.

The most entertaining slagfest of 2006. Dec 23 2006
By Jason Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
21 year old Louise Harman (aka Lady Sovereign) is mad as hell, and she ain't going to take it anymore on her full length debut, "Public Warning". To her credit, as an English, female, and short rapper, she avoids typical rapper pitfalls such as rapping about sex, money, bling, being better than everyone else, drugs, etc., etc. Instead she focuses on socialism, classism, self-affirmation, and yes, overuse of suntan salons.

She's had several hits in Britain already, but in America her first single is the extremely catchy and also obnoxious "Love Me Or Hate Me", with a humorous video to go along with it. At least Ms. Harman doesn't take herself too seriously like so many pompous rappers today. Some other potential hits could be "9 To 5" (not Dolly Parton's version), "Random" and "Hoodie".

I found "My England" to be one song that showcased what Ms. Harman could be capable of in the future (assuming she sticks with this music thing). In "My England" she gives a scathing portrait of and England unlike what foreigners perceive as filtered through the media. That's okay, I always thought the true England was more Sex Pistols, The Clash and "Trainspotting" (which is Scottish, but close enough) anyway. I also found the title track to be an interesting change-up of punk/hip hop/rock/rap.

There are a few missteps like "Gatheration", "A Little Bit Of Shhh" and "Those Were The Days" that were dull.

Overall, "Public Warning" shows promise if Lady Sovereign can overcome the one-hit wonder, novelty act label, she might just go on to be the only white, female, British, biggest-midget in the game.

Make Way For The Ess-Oh-Vee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nov. 7 2006
By R. Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lady Sovereign has taken Amercian colleges by storm and now she's ready to take over the American mainstream music industry. Her recently released Public Warning is by far the best album I've heard in a very long time. Lady SOV, as she is most often called, is fresh and new and with her eclectic style and inability to fit into any one genre this Brit is sure to make her mark in America. For those who are looking for something different this is definitely the album to buy and if you like remixes purchase her first compilation Vertically Challenged which contains the track (The Battle) that helped boost Lady Sovereign's career as well as other well known tracks and remixes. Love and support "The Biggest Midget In The Game" AKA Lady Sovereign.

Make Way fuh da SOV!! March 24 2007
By Underpants - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Niiiiiiccceee! Saw SOV for the first time on Letterman & knew we had to hear more. Fierce stuff from "da biggest midget in da game." Undeniable talent, fresh flow, rapid-fire rap (tho' do I detect a bit of digital assist with her speed-rap on the title track? Have to see her live to know for sure......) Crisply produced, great effort here. Check out the remix for "Love Me or Hate Me" w/Missy Elliott. Surpasses the original edit by far. Great stuff! Love her or hate her - we love her & can't wait for more!

3-1/2 stars -- Good but she could use a hook-up July 31 2007
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Very few white female rappers seem to be able to make it in the game, possibly because they either try too hard (Sarai) or they don't try hard enough (Northern State). All arguments aside, I remember first reading about Lady Sovereign in the 2005 Love/Hate issue of XXL, and I didn't really know who she was except that she was on Def Jam. I didn't get to hear her Vertically Challenged EP, but I have to say that I enjoy her full-length debut, Public Warning.

Be advised, though: Lady Sov's style isn't best classified as "standard" rap. She's actually an English grime artist, which IS still rap, but it isn't structured the same way as rap in the States is. Fortunately, her music is more accessible than, say, Dizzee Rascal's; and although her thick accent is wholly evident within her rhymes, it's easier to stand than, say, the Streets'. Notable tracks include "9 to 5", "Fiddle with the Volume" and, of course, "Love Me or Hate Me".

There is also a necessary end-of-album remix-of-the-first-single featuring Missy Elliott, and although it's good, it seems like Missy just changed her style to suit Sov's (but Missy changes her style on every song she does anyway, so maybe that's not that big of a deal). But the only real problem with the album is that there are a lot of otherwise great songs that have questionable choruses, especially "Blah Blah Blah". "Random" seems like a bad attempt to introduce new slang, and the chorus to "Tango" doesn't make any sense. But there are still enough good moments to qualify Lady Sovereign as a force not to be reckoned with, so pick Public Warning up.

Very strong effort from one of today's most overlooked MC's... March 16 2007
By M. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lady Sovereign seems to bring everything together for her 2006 release Public Warning. The album is a noticeable improvement from her earlier release, Vertically Challenged, and seems to have a more consistent, direct, and polished sound. Lady Sovereign's tongue in cheek lyrics and habit of poking fun at others as well as herself is a reflection of similar artists such as Eminem, The Streets, and mc chris. Her overall sound is like that of U.K. mc's Ms. Dynamite and Lilly Allen. Though Lady Sovereign is often said to be the female Eminem and is also compared with other rap/pop artists hailing from the UK like The Streets and Lilly Allen, Public Warning is a fusion of rap, pop, house, drum and bass, as well as reggae. Love or Hate Me and Hoodie are certainly catchy tracks worth checking out. The remix of Love or Hate Me is probably one of the strongest tracks on the entire album. Songs such as Tango are full of the comedic and memorable lyrics Lady Sovereign is known for, very similar to the sound of nerd-core artist mc chris. Many of the tracks on this album do sound much the same, and can seem a bit repetitive at times. If you enjoy Eminem and The Streets....get your hands on this!!!
