  1. 8.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    With her big voice and ballsy attitude, is she Ilford’s very own Pink?
    Read Review

  2. 7.0 |   The Digital Fix

    Establishes her as one of the UK’s most original pop artists
    Read Review

  3. 7.0 |   Spin

    Her voice can rival Christina Aguilera's for sheer force, but she keeps it on a tighter leash
    Read Review

  4. 6.0 |   Uncut

    Print edition only

  5. 6.0 |   The Observer

    Impressive, if not entirely lovable
    Read Review

  6. 6.0 |   Scotland on Sunday

    Smart pop chops
    Read Review

  7. 6.0 |   BBC

    A patchy debut from the award-winner, but with signs of significant potential
    Read Review

  8. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Divested of the slowies, this would have been a fine pop record
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Formidable momentum
    Read Review

  10. 5.0 |   NME

    Cheeky, relevant, and fresh
    Read Review

  11. 5.0 |   No Ripcord

    Who You Are promised much more than what has been delivered
    Read Review

  12. 5.0 |   AU Magazine

    Gaga, Pixie Lott, Adele, and of course Rihanna. They are all here. But where, tell us, is Jessie J?
    Read Review

  13. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    In the quest to find herself, she seems to have gotten sidetracked
    Read Review

  14. 4.2 |   A.V. Club

    In trying to be an über-pop-star, she ends up becoming an every-pop-star
    Read Review

  15. 4.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Well-meaning, well-crafted and confused. Sometimes versatility can be a vice
    Read Review

  16. 4.0 |   State

    Beneath the posturing there’s a good songwriter with a voice to match the likes of Christina and Alicia Keys, which is why Who You Are is as much a disappointment as it is a surprise
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   Pop Matters

    It’s just not very interesting, let alone subversive or challenging
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    She is more interested in tiresome vocal showboating than communicating anything truthful
    Read Review

  19. 4.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    The mystery remains as to why Jessie J exists or what she's for, other than to fill some space and keep the wheels turning
    Read Review

  20. 3.0 |   Rave Magazine

    It lacks anything like distinct character or personality
    Read Review

  21. 2.0 |   Pitchfork

    She comes across like a severely dumbed-down Lily Allen at best, and at worst she seems like someone you would want to root against in a televised singing competition
    Read Review

  22. 1.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    an ‘urban’ ‘pop’ record made to fade in the background in lobbies and cafes, and, yeah, mandem-mandem, squawk, squawk. Whateverz
