Lady Sovereign, Jigsaw [Midget/World's Fair]

Our rating: 3.5 out of a possible 5

Lady Sovereign's only British rival in lyrical witticisms is Lily Allen, but instead of cooing, Sov spews her rhymes over icy beats. On this, her second album, she brings some melodic charm to the mix, especially on the title track and "So Human," whose melody is lifted from the Cure's "Close to Me." Matt Hendrickson
