Biography

Talk about a pop fantasy come to life. When Pixie Lott first emerged from the Italia Conti stage school in 2008 nobody could have predicted her seamless charge towards radio ubiquity and global recognition. Yet that's exactly what followed: two albums (2009's million selling, triple Platinum Turn It Up and 2011's Young Foolish Happy that spawned the #1 smash All About Tonight) and ...

BBC Review

Sad news: there is no Boys and Girls on this, Pixie Lott’s second album. Her one real smasheroo moment so far made the most of the singer’s dark, nosey rasp, churning on a delirious one-note chorus and creating a properly improper, devilish, bratty and rude pop song. But it’s a trick she has failed to repeat on Young Foolish Happy, which is odd, because Pixie is clearly working with songwriters who are capable of a finely tuned pastiche or two.

Kiss the Stars, for example, is essentially Firework by Katy Perry; when making Bright Lights (Good Life) Part 2, someone failed to clear the Bruce Hornsby piano sample they wish the song was based on (yep, that one); and the template for All About Tonight is clearly All Of The Songs In The Top Five (circa 2010). For her part, Pixie still sings as if she has wadded her cheeks with cotton wool and now has to retch the fluff out from the back of her throat. That’ll account for the occasionally shonky tuning, too.

Dancing on My Own boasts a Morse code vocal refrain made entirely from glottal stops – it’s like listening to a gag reflex sing an SOS message. And she does it again on the next song, the Sean Kingston-y Birthday, throwing in a bleeped out f-word for good measure. We Just Go On suffers particularly badly from Pixie’s delivery, where she staggers across the line between ‘pained’ and ‘in pain’ with alarming regularity. Then again, if you haven’t got used to that noise by now, you wouldn't be buying a Pixie Lott album in the first place.

The notable exceptions are Nobody Does It Better, which boasts the same kind of beat-enhanced Philly soul as a mid-90s Eternal hit, and You Win, this album’s sophisticated show tune. Oh, and hats off to the producer who managed to make an actual Stevie Wonder harmonica solo happen (over which Pixie has the nerve to giggle) and then chose to give the song in which it appears the title Stevie on the Radio, a pun her non-indie fanbase will possibly miss. --Fraser McAlpine

If this is any indication of how Britain's pop stars are faring in 2011, all is well in the UK. Pixie Lott's sophomore effort is as fun as it is relevant to the genre she has comfortably settled into. Her newest album if filled with danceable tracks with quick beats and the party swagger necessary and needed to keep the discos open all night.

This is a bi-continent recording, as she jetted from Los Angeles to London to put this release together, and part of the album is fun and fresh, but in a few spots it's a bit forced as she grabs you by the hand to come and play play play NOW on the dance floor no matter what you're thinking! Whew!

(For this review I'm listening to the Deluxe Edition, which has 20 tracks instead of the regular 14.)

01. Come Get It Now - what if Amy Winehouse had made happy tracks like Jessie J? This is the answer, and it still has that wonderful slightly soulful edge to it that makes it a fun listen. The boy on the dance floor should be paying more attention to her...

02. All About Tonight - this was her first release from this new album, and as we all know it hit number one as soon as it was released, and rightly so. It shows the new direction of Ms. Lott, and the dance music (and her new attitude) has never been poppier.

03. What Do You Take Me For? (featuring Pusha T) - her attitude was never more apparent than on this track, which got as high as number 10 on the British charts on October 2011. Pixie channels her Pink "girl power" finest as she tells her boy to hit the bricks and keep walking. Pusha T's New York Bronx rap in the middle of the track only balances this song out, as Ms.

As a 90's guy, 90's music is my cup of tea...and a big slice of flapjack. Now I proudly hold my award for "Most Obvious Statement Ever Made In An Amazon Review." But after numerous listen-throughs of Oasis, Blur and Jamiroquai albums, my ears needed to listen to something a little bit...you know...different. After a bit of a search through the MP3 album pages I decided to give a shot at listening to "Young Foolish Happy," the 2nd album release from Victoria Louise Lott. In case you're wondering, that is Pixie's real name. It's not 90's material, but it's different nonetheless.

There are 14 songs on this album, but it seems more like two mini albums. Most of the songs talk about relationships; some in a positive light and some in a negative one. While I can't relate to any of the lyrics (heck, even fat chicks don't wanna go anywhere near me!) I can still appreciate the sound that some of the songs provide. In the first half we have the No.1 single ALL ABOUT TONIGHT and KISS THE STARS, two upbeat high quality tracks worthy of repeated plays; while STEVIE ON THE RADIO has an old-fashioned Motown vibe about it which I actually quite enjoyed as well. But my favourite track is NOBODY DOES IT BETTER, and there's a lot to like about it, including the slow mellow but vibrant start and the interesting tempo speed up. The lovely mixture of lively jazz and upbeat pop make NOBODY DOES IT BETTER the standout track for me on YFH.

Pixie was clearly enjoying herself in the first half of the album, having fun and all that. However things get more serious in the second half, with songs intended to provide a strong blow to the emotional part of the mind and soul.

On first listen, besides the singles, the ones that stuck out to me most were What Do You Take Me For? (Looking on Youtube it's not everyones cup or tea but I actually like it) Love You To Death, Bright Lights(Good Life)Pt.II and We Just Go On. The others just didn't stick in my head and I couldn't really tell them apart from eachother. But after a good couple of listens, Dancing On My Own, You Win, Everybody Hurts Sometimes and Nobody Does It Better stood out alot more for me than the rest.

1. Come Get It Now- 8/10; It's catchy , A good opening for the album.

2. All About Tonight- 9/10l (First single of the album, though I didn't really like it at first, thought Bright Lights would've been a better choice)

3. What Do You Take Me For? - Pixie Lott, Pusha T- 9/10 (Kind of prefer the remix on the Deluxe.)

4. Nobody Does It Better - 9/10

5. Kiss The Stars - 7/10

6. Stevie On The Radio - 7/10 (I was looking forward to this one, kind of disappointed.)

7. Everybody Hurts Sometimes - 9/10

8. Dancing On My Own - Pixie Lott, Marty James- 8/10

9. Love You To Death - 10/10 (With lyrics like "How am I s'posed to leave if you refuse to let me go? Don't know how I ever let you have so much control, every time you're feeling high you make me feel so low." And the chorus, this is easily my favourite song from the whole album.

10. Birthday - 7/10

11. Bright Lights (Good Life) Part II - Tinchy Stryder, Pixie Lott- 10/10

12. Perfect - 8/10

13. You Win - 9/10

14. We Just Go On - 10/10 ("And no one's scared of flying, we're just scared of crashing down, no one's scared of falling, we're just scared to hit the ground.
