CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

There's a slight drawback to this cohesion -- It's Not Me never hits heights as blinding as "Smile" or "LDN" -- but this approach does wind up spotlighting just how special a pop star Lily Allen is, how she captures all that's wretched and glorious about her time without falling into any of its traps, probably because she's clever enough to avoid them in the first place.

Despite being more commercial, "It's Not Me, It's You" handles its' electronic production very lightly, which makes for an easy listen, and its' lyrics are almost as witty as they were on her debut.

Highlights: The Fear, Not Fair and F*ck You.
