AllMusic Review by

Issued in early 2008, ACROSS THE POND continues Starbucks' foray into the music industry by presenting an accessible and easy-going collection of contemporaneous British pop acts. In addition to featuring U.K. artists that have had major breakthroughs in the U.S. market (James Blunt, Amy Winehouse), the 14-track compilation includes other buzzed-about English performers, most notably the Fratellis (the raucous "Flathead") and Lily Allen (the sassy "Everything's Just Wonderful").
