Lily Allen's latest album

Same perky pop instrumentation matched to heartfelt lyrics.
But unfortunately, it feels like exactly the same perky pop instrumentation, and the lyrics have lost most of the bare-knuckles dysfunction that were such an ironic match for the saccharine pop melodies.  Here, Lily sings about an old boyfriend, "Since you've gone I've lost that chip on my shoulder."  Too right.  I think she was better when she had the chip.
