Make no mistake, this is a FABULOUS album! I love it! It's better than "Young Foolish Happy" (which was great) and ranks alongside "Turn It Up" as one of her best albums. There's the fantastic, funky hit "Nasty" with its James Brown sample and those sexy horns, and other stompers like "Kill A Man" and the touching "Champion".
This album shows those stupid X Factor wannabes how it's done. It has so much personality, so much drive, such fantastic pop, that it just kicks Cher Lloyd, James Arthur, Ella Henderson, Leona Lewis et al to the kerb. Simon Cowell must be choking with envy because he can't lay any claim to Pixie's career.
Even if you only buy one album this year, make it this one. It is IMPOSSIBLE not to dance to this album - "Nasty" is easily the best single of the year. This album must make Cheryl Cole weep for days. And so she should - it makes the trite rubbish Cole puts out look like a child scrawled it in crayon at nursery.
Cheryl Cole does not deserve to be a star. She is not famous for her music, but for her yawn-some, oft-publicised personal life. Pixie is a star - a fantastic singer and songwriter as well as a great role-model for young British women. This is the work of a mature artiste but at the same time it's fresh, hip, funky, original, and damn catchy. I think Pixie should be REALLY PROUD, not just of this album but of herself. Well done, girl - you're a true super-star!!
