This is the best indie pop song for years.
Some reviews are just so easy to write. Sometimes you hear something that's obviously so good that the problem is trying to decide which aspect is the most praiseworthy... It warms the heart to hear such simple, wonderful, quality pop like this. Simple, yet so hard to get right. She shows us you don't have to be clever-clever to be clever. Allo Darlin' will, quite plainly, become, if not huge, then hugely popular with a great many people.

The name of this album perfectly encapsulates everything I love about Elizabeth's musical output from the Darlings to Allo Darlin' to these precious songs: an unyielding optimism that is never naive, and by being so, becomes wildly contagious. Some music tells you that "everything will be ok", but her music actually makes you believe it, even when the lyrics hint at doubt. Michael Feck
