Lily Allen

Lily Allen

It’s easy to dismiss Lily Allen. Her online blog, rent-a-quote attitude, the many imitators (Adele, Kate Nash, Laura Marling, etc, etc) and the overexposure of tunes like ‘Smile’ and ‘LDN’ soon turned them from quirky, endearing pop to irritating. However new album It’s Not Me, It’s You has shown a new maturity in her lyrics and song structure.

Lily Allen

How on earth is Laura Marling an imitator of Lily Allen? What a load of rubbish.
