TK #63: Lily Allen – Alright, Still (2006)

This album is so disarming, so wry, and so full of surface appeal that it’s easy not to notice that it’s also great. Not in that dismissive great-for-a-pop-record sense. Just great. Melodic, bouncy, buoyant, and wickedly funny, with more awareness of tradition than it lets on. There’s old English dance hall music here, there’s soul, there’s Two-tone. And joy. Lots and lots of joy.

your review is retarded.most of the songs were stolen from old reggae artists.this was the most un-original record that anyone could ever dream of.
