LILY ALLEN – SHEEZUS

DNA Magazine - - MUSIC -

We haven’t had a good run of al­bums from our pop di­vas of late, have we? First Gaga’s overly am­bi­tious/pre­ten­tious ArtPop stiffed, then Kylie teamed up with Sia and rather than smarten­ing up Ms Minogue, she was dumbed down to the grat­ing level of Sex­er­cise, eas­ily the pair’s mu­si­cal nadir. So can Lily help res­ur­rect our faith in beloved pop tarts? The good thing about Lily’s third al­bum is she’s so mouthy it al­most doesn’t mat­ter if the mu­sic isn’t up to scratch. De­spite the first two sin­gles be­ing rather, well, fluffy, there’s plenty of bite else­where. It’s clear, though, that moth­er­hood has tem­pered Lily a lit­tle and made her more re­flec­tive and a lot less cranky.
