Scott - the reasons why so many people including myself know that the Kate Nash Album is brilliant even though it's not out are obvious:
1. they have seen her live (inc Glasto, T in The Park etc)
2. they have seen her on You Tube - all the album tracks have (legally) been on there for weeks
3. they have listened to her sessions on the radio e.g. XFM
4. they view her MySpace site which actually kick started her fame (check out the 1.3 million+ hits figure).

I think the album is highly original, nothing like Lily Allen, thankfully sung in her own voice (not a pseudo American one) and I am off to see her at two gigs in Sept and Nov.

I hope you revise your opinion and enjoy the album.

Neal Zetter.

I just bought the album after hearing Foundations on the radio over the last few weeks and the other tracks on MySpace. I have to say I'm bitterly disappointed with the album, Kate Nash has a great voice and lyrics but the added production stuff on the tracks like "we get on" "merry happy" and the other songs on her MySpace page ruin the songs. They have been sped up and extra drumbeats added that in my opinion wreck the songs!

A real shame

N. L. Zetter, the reasons so many people including myself think that Kate Nash album is a whopping massive turd of a record is that we own a pair of ears and are able to use them in conjunction with our brain to make a critical assessment.

I particularly loved your 'nothing like Lily Allen'. Ha ha ha. Both dreary middle class girls affecting a streetwise stance that is utter fantasy. Both lyrically banal. Both highly managed by major record labels. Both a big huge bright shining LIE.

Still, I'm heartened by the poor response to Nash's half-baked and rushed album, which will perhaps persuade the major labels that cashing in a single's success isn't always a good idea if your artist doesn't have more than 2 good songs for an album.

BHC: If you dont like Kate Nash why are you listening so closely to her lyrics and music?
So you havent got the same musical taste, why do you have to be so arrogant regarding your view.

Got the album for christmas
some good songs and some truly dreadful songs
maybe she should have waited
till she had a few more songs and not just put anything on it to make up the numbers

Lilly Allen's album is brilliant

lets not get into the whole middle class thing, the music industry is almost entirely made up of the middle class,
as real working class people have to get jobs and don't have the time or money to make it in music.
