“A MERE EIGHT MONTHS AFTER SHE FIRST PUT HER SONGS ON THE INTERNET, LILY ALLEN IS THE BIGGEST FEMALE POP STAR IN THE UK RIGHT NOW.” POPMATTERS.COM

“SHE’S THE SALTY SONGBIRD WHOSE GUNG-HO GIRL-ABOUT-TOWN SKA-POP TUNES SPUN MILLIONS OF KEYBOARD CLICKERS INTO A DOWNLOADING FRENZY.” NME

“IN THE TRADITION OF ANNIE, ROBYN AND STACEY Q, ALLEN IS A THEORETICAL POP PRINCESS.” ROLLING STONE

“…BOASTING NO FEWER THAN SEVEN POTENTIAL SINGLES, IT’S AN ALBUM MADE AT THE INTERSECTION OF WHIPSMART BRITISH POP LIKE SAINT ETIENNE, THE SPECIALS AND – INEVITABLY, GIVEN THAT BOTH WRITE COLLOQUIALLY ABOUT THINGS LIKE WAITING IN CLUB QUESES AND GETTING STONED – THE STREETS.” PITCHFORK

If there was one debut nearly all the critics agreed on last year, it was the first record by Lily Allen. The young, saucy British lass, daughter of the comedian Keith Allen, released one of the most acclaimed records of last year in Alright, Still. Her sassy single “Smile” reached #1 in the U.K., and the album #2. Follow-up singles “LDN” and “Littlest Things” followed in “Smile”’s wake, nearly repeating its success. Meanwhile critics have fallen all over themselves to praise the record, which features Lily’s cheerful yet biting take on subjects such as bar stars, London life, and her little brother.

Now, after taking her native country by storm, Lily is doing the same in North America. Indeed, Lily Allen is so hot right now that Alright, Still crashed into the Billboard Top 100 at #20!
