A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that even though Nash likes to swear a bit, the foul language never seems overbearing or gratuitous, and she's even able to slip it into the otherwise sweet, witty, and lovable songs. There is some passing talk about drinking and getting drunk. Lyrics also cover innocent love, saying what's on your mind, and standing up for yourself.

What's the story?
With her thick English accent, Kate Nash carefully blends insight, storytelling, and pop sounds to create MADE OF BRICKS, an album of sweet ballads and jaunty tunes about love and failed relationships. \"The Nicest Thing\" plays up the longing (\"Basically, I wish that you loved me/I wish that you needed me/I wish that you knew when I said two sugars/actually I meant three\"); while \"Birds\" -- with its sweet guitar accompaniment -- describes love's innocence (\"Right birds can fly so high/and they can s--t on your head/and they can almost fly into your eye/and make you feel well scared/But when you look at them/and you see that they're beautiful/that's how I feel about you\").
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about artists being compared to other artists. Why is this a good thing? How can it help -- or hurt -- someone's career? Families can also discuss how Nash uses humor and simplicity to get her point across. What does humor mask? Can artists get away with more if they camouflage it with wit?
