Few starlets have ever had a name as fitting as Pixie Lott, the teenage thrush whose debut, Turn It Up, turned her into something of a European sensation in 2009. Lott does indeed possess no small measure of mischief, blatantly lifting phrasing from Beyoncé, Rihanna, Amy Winehouse, Duffy, and Joss Stone in equal measure but getting away with her magpie act through the sheer impish force of her personality. Of course, she’s assisted by a strong set of songs, several co-written by Lott herself, that walk a line between classic and contemporary, a divide reminiscent of Mark Ronson productions, sometimes bringing to mind a lighter, brighter Back to Black.

Based on rating 3/5

Daffy girl pop with just the teensiest bit of attitude, enough retro influences and the odd acceptable ballad. Legs longer than Tinchy Stryder won't hurt either..
