Girl Talk is another step in shaping Nash as a singer-songwriter, but lacks the consistency to make it memorable

2.5 stars

Theoretically, there's so much to love about Nash. She's transformed from cutesy nondescript indie pop to riot grrrl-inspired rock. Yet her significant feminist arguments are too often lost in Girl Talk, with mediocre songwriting and poor delivery – see the cringeworthy Rap For Rejection. Nash nails romantic disappointment in OMYGOD! and female friendship bonds on Sister, when she lets her voice and inhibitions go. The vocal screeches teeter on ugly, but feel more visceral than wordy balladeering. Girl Talk is another step in shaping Nash as a singer-songwriter, but lacks the consistency to make it memorable.
