A Lot Better Than Alright, Still
Alright, Still - Lily Allen

Alright, Still - Lily Allen
Advantages: Every song is catchy, poptastic and worth a listen.
Disadvantages: The album is not long enough.
I absolutley love Lily Allen for her catchy pop songs, witty and tell all lyrics. But is that only a one or two song thing on her debut offering 'Alright, Still' - I can reveal it doesnt stop there! All of her songs on this 11 track album all have their own story behind them too which I love!
The opening track 'Smile' is an hilarious pop song detailing an ex-boyfriend of hers "f*****g that girl next door" and how he wants her back but shes just set on revenge. The beat is fantastic and I absolutley love the lyrics.
The second track 'Knock Em Out' is one of my favourites off the album, lyrically its about guys trying to pull her from a club and she keeps rejecting him. This is a song everyone can relate to whether your a boy or a girl. Vocals are brilliant too!
The third track 'LDN' (short for London, in case you're wondering) is another fantastic track off the album, another song with amazing lyrics and a good pop song!
The fourth track 'Everythings Just Wonderful' is another of my favourites from the album. Its a song about not being able to afford a house, and about weight issues. The beat is brilliant and so are the lyrics.
Fifth track 'Not Big' is a song about Lily's sex life, saying her partner didnt satisfy her sexual needs, and that he was generally just "not big". She sings this song like she is directly speaking to whom ever she wrote it about. A tongue in cheek, ballsy song young people in particular will love.
Sixth track 'Friday Night' is a song about going out to a club and women trying to intimidate her, she sure fires back in this song, the beats are mesmorising and she sings this in such a slow tempo way. It's a brilliant song.
Seventh track 'Shame For You' is, I assume about a scrounging ex partner who "wastes my time and wastes my money", its another ballsy song by Lily. Its quite a slow song and is probably the weakest song on the album, however, it is still brilliant!
Eighth track 'Littlest Things' is a slow pop/ballad song, and she sings that she loves the littlest things in life when she is in a relationship. Its another one of my favourites.
Ninth track 'Take What You Take' is a song encouraging people to forget everything and just do what you want do do as long as its real and who you are. Okay, its no Christina Aguilera's 'Beautiful' but its a softer song encouraging the same thing. Her voice is pretty good in this too!
Tenth track 'Friend of Mine' has a reggae feel to it as she sings "you're no friend of mine, and I've known it for a while". It leaves the idea of a friend changing into someone else because of drugs. Another fantastic song.
The eleventh track 'Alfie' is just the icing on the cake to this not enough songs album, its about her trying to convince her little brother into doing something good with his life and to stop lazying around. Unusual beats in a good way and her voice is very well suited to this kind of music. Love it!
Summary: Fantastic debut offering from Ms Allen
