Lily Allen

Alright, Still

 

British ska singer Lily Allen delivers a knock-out hit in her album Alright, Still, released 2006 in the UK, stateside in 2007.  Her voice and appearance suggest that this album is filled with Tinker-Bell charm and playfulness, however it’s the opposite of Tinker-Bell!  Songs such as “Alfie”, a singsong narration of her brother’s substance addiction, “Knock ‘Em Out”, a song about receiving unwanted advances at a club, and “Friday Night”, telling of the singer’s mishaps with a female club goer, all give this CD it’s humorous tone.  Listeners may be shocked by the vulgar language in some of the songs, an example of which found in the song “Everything’s Just Wonderful”: “It’s really funny ‘cause I got your ****ing money/and you’re never gonna get it, just cause of my bad credit”. You be the judge!
