Though Lily Allen’s tabloid fodder has slightly dimmed my excitement for her as a person, I’m still very much on board for album number two. It’s Not Me, It’s You is streaming in full over at MySpace, prior to its February 10th US release date. She’s traded the jaunty ska-inflected foundation for one that is housed in synths and electronic beats. But her lyrical over-sharing is still her forte. Even though the mood is slightly darker, the songs are equally as engaging as before (well, at least, upon first listen). Allen’s insecurities and cheeky observations make for great pop songs, even though, as this reviewer points out, she never really lets you in. So, even though she lets you see her bum willingly, she manages to retain a little mystery. Perhaps, she’s wiser than we give her credit for.
