DIY

'Girl Talk' is the sound of Kate Nash, stretching her wings and just pleasing herself.

70
NME

An album that veers between the lush pop melodies of her last two LPs and a full-frontal riot grrrl assault.

Drowned in Sound

At 15 tracks, Girl Talk is probably a quarter hour too long as well - it just doesn’t have the ideas to sustain itself.

Pitchfork

She’s still all over the map when it comes to style but it mostly works on Girl Talk

Consequence of Sound

If Nash had called it quits after “Rap For Rejection” (yes, she does rap, and it’s actually not that bad), Girl Talk would have been much better off. At 15 songs and 52 minutes, it’s far too long.

A.V. Club

Girl Talk may be the album she’s always wanted to make, but fans of her older material may be left wanting.

Girl Talk’s main problem is that its songs are not, on the whole, any good.

Not particularly brilliant. I think Kate is a great artist, but these songs are too simple and too amateur sounding. On the sadder moments, it really works, though.

It's not that bad, but it isn't much else, really. This is the first time that I've found myself disliking the sound of a Kate Nash album. There isn't much to make it memorable, but there's nothing that could make you hate it. A reasonably decent release, but it isn't much of anything, really.

Very nice result experimenting with her rocky side... it feels like Kate Nash is finally finding her own sound.
