(this is a review of the deluxe edition)

i feel so many conflicting feelings about this album. i honestly love her aesthetic and her vibe here, but at the same time it feels pretty forced and not super authentic for lily allen. a lot of the songs are enjoyable and can be bops, but the production is kind of cheap and generic and in some instances makes some songs that could be great lily classics awkward and not as good. in some of these songs, her lyrics are as feisty and poignant as they always are, but on other songs (especially the ones about being like a "bad bitch") they just come out super insincere and are not believable, specifically "Sheezus" and "Silver Spoon". on other songs, "Miserable Without Your Love" and "Wind Your Neck In", the songs could be fantastic if it weren't for a really bad chorus (the former) or some really bad production (the latter; why was this made like an EDM song??). but it's not all bad! "Insincerely Yours", "Our Time", "Hard Out Here", "URL Badman" are all perfect for her and are fantastic songs, despite some production shortcomings. all in all Sheezus has some highlights but i now understand why lily allen had an identity crisis after making this album because it definitely doesn't sound like her.

best tracks: Insincerely Yours, Hard Out Here, Our Time, URL Badman, Somewhere Only We Know
worst tracks: Take Me Place, Close Your Eyes, Wind Your Neck In
