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.Read more ›
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.

Great music! I love Lily Allen. Light, upbeat, bouncy music with some heavier lyrics. A combination I wasn't used to but fell in love with quickly! Read morePublished on Feb. 23 2010 by Raynbow_brite
The Lily Allen backlash began before she got around to releasing her second single, that summery, skanking pop belter, "Smile". Read morePublished on March 20 2007 by Christi Serrao
