8 thoughts on “ Back To The Start - Lily Allen - Its Not Me, Its You (CD, Album) ”
When all you ever wanted from me was a token of my love And if it's not too late Could you please find it deep within your heart To try and go back, go back to the start Go back to the start I've been so evil with my constant invasions But you made it so easy for me You always rise to the occasion I'd always pull you up on every stupid thing.
It's Not Me, It's You was written and produced by Lily and Greg Kurstin (one half of the duo The Bird and The Bee) and has a dancier, darker, more mature edge. And Lily proves she's still the provocateur with a heart of gold. The album features twelve brand new tracks including the first single 'The Fear'/5().
You begin to wonder how this life is truly affecting her. Half way through Lily’s sophomore album you realize that it is more beat happy than ska-happy. This does style suits her perfectly and it does not make the music any less enjoyable. In fact the fantastic production on songs like “Back To The Start” allow Lily’s vocals to truly shine.
Like many a bright pop star before her, Allen is feeling a little bit older than her 23 years, knowing that the landscape of her life is changing, and she's dreading her 30s, which still feel very far away. Lily doesn't state this outright, of course: she puts it into the character sketch of "22," just like how she deals with the blizzard of cocaine and pills on "Everyone's at It," registering 8/
Kurstin doesn't avoid pop hooks or cheeky camp -- "F*** You" galumphs by on a two-step, "He Wasn't There" is music hall pastiche, and "Never Gonna Happen" gives Lily plenty of room to be coyly disingenuous -- but It's Not Me, It's You streamlines Allen's eccentricities and bad habits, holding together in a way the gloriously messy Alright.
It's Not Me, It's You, is the follow-up to Lily Allen's critically acclaimed debut, Alright, Still. The album finds Lily in top form, creating a record Blender's recent "In The Studio" feature described as "part God, part country and all middle finger."/5().
Never Gonna Happen Lyrics: I don't wanna hurt you 'cause I don't think it's a virtue / But you and I have come to our end / Believe me when I tell you that I never wanna see you again / And please.
Lily Allen made a name for herself with the lyrically vengeful yet happy-go-lucky "Smile" and It's Not Me, It's You continues the trend of songs written to someone rather than about them. The anti-anti gay "Fuc k You" makes specific references to an anonymous person's "tiny mind".
