Well as she is soon to be returning to music i was having a look back at her past two albums. I love both and both have been on repeat since their release and its been hard to decide. But for me INMIY just edges it. It's far more personal and cohesive and less cartoonish than AS. but that said AS is one of the best pop/alternative albums of the last decade full of sharp wit and observations and great melodies and hooks.

So what's your favourite

Difficult because they are both so different. I remember buying AS on the day it came out and absolutely loved it, but I do prefer the songs on INMIY, so i'll go with that

I can't stand 'Not Fair' though. After 'The Fear' I thought that was a terrible choice of single.

It's Not Me, It's You is one of the best pop albums ever - EVER!

Can't wait for the new material.

Alright Still

It gives you an insight to Lily's world and I love her honesty into the lyrics.

I love her second album but her first still remains a huge personal fav of mine

Alright Still wins for me, always loved it. By the time the second album came out my music tastes had changed and i didnt really enjoy it.

That is definitely one of the best pop albums ever. Lyrically as well. Which is even more impressive since Lily wrote it.

My ex was literally obsessed with Lily Allen and made me listen to it whenever we drove anywhere.

I think the song I liked was called I Could Say and the one that goes 'how on earth could I be anymore obvious....'

Never Gonna Happen it's a great song

Agreed with others INMIY is lyrically much more mature and she says alot without being preachy or overtly in your face its very much her but also very relatable

I love Alright Still a ridiculous amount, but It's Not Me, It's You may just be my favourite album of all time. The prospect of a third album is far too exciting.

I think Alright, Still is a classic in a way that It's Not Me, It's You isn't, but both are great albums really - I guess INMIY is more consistent and adult, but it still has nothing as good as Smile or LDN.

I disagree i think in time it will be given more consideration than alright, still which i think was just more culturally significant. And The Fear, Not Fair, 22, **** You all classic pop songs and The Fear lyrically one of the best of the last decade i would say
