Lily Allen – Sheezus

From the moment she ripped apart a good boyfriend’s skills as a lover on “Not Fair”, it was obvious that Lily Allen prized honesty, even if that honesty was brutal, judgmental, or uncomfortable. She made a name for herself by crafting liveable, memorable pop songs that didn’t care if they weren’t polite. The flip side of pop-punk, Allen was punk-pop, in attitude if not in music. She has always felt sharpest at her most uncompromising, and that fact is thrown into stark contrast on Allen’s latest, Kanye West-referencing record, Sheezus, which is at its strongest when it cops to more details and weakens considerably when the London-born singer-songwriter falls back on generalities.
