CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

There are glimpses of promise scattered between the overwrought delivery and unnecessary vocal gymnastics.

PopMatters

Who You Are tries very hard to swagger, but it trips over its own feet and continues to self-consciously limp on through thirteen tracks.

20
Pitchfork

She comes across like a severely dumbed-down Lily Allen at best, and at worst she seems like someone you would want to root against in a televised singing competition.

10
Drowned in Sound

This is dead-eyed pop with aspirations of being your comfort food but ends up being a starchy soulless slop.

This isn't good music. It disappoints me that artists signed to major labels such as Jessie can't sing. Of course, I don't know if her recent vocal heroism in "Bang Bang" was the real deal but the vocals here, in Who You Are, are definitely real and shaky at their best. Price Tag and Domino are sure fire radio hits but there is no common thread in this album thematically or any message here that's worthwhile listening to.

I think the only songs that are good are the ones she chose as singles, the rest falls flat
