5.0 out of 5 stars Seemingly naive and incredibly charming, 5 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Made of Bricks (Audio CD)
What are all these overly vitriolic, invective-filled reviews doing here?
What strange agenda must certain people have to express such major issues with what is basically the musings of a really quite talented young woman writing unassuming tunes about her perception and experience of life.

The joy of Kate Nash, for me, is the total lack of self-importance within her lyrics and the willingness to expose her own idiosyncracies and vulnerabilities to such scrutiny. With Kate Nash there is a totally believable simplicity and honesty in every track. At times it truly sounds like her deepest, most hidden, inner thoughts as she plots her path through the mundanity of everyday life.
It shows that Ms Nash actually has a very rich "inner-life" rather than following the more popular, pedestrian and intellectually impoverished direction favoured by lesser talents.

Most of all; this album makes me smile and even laugh at times. It's not cynical, world-weary or negative but still has a knowing twinkle in it's eye which saves it from becoming mawkish or too sugary.

That's a refreshing treat these days.

(To the tiresome "she's copying Lily Allen" brigade)
This album has none of that dreadful faux-attitude that sadly ruined my enjoyment of Lily Allen's offering. Initially loved her songs but after a couple of listens I began to notice that she actively supported, even aggressively championed, too many of life's unpleasantries and hypocracies to be digestable any longer.

I agree with the where's "Caroline's a victim" comment. Superb track. (downloadable free from the official website if you're interested)
