Duffy - Rockferry (2008)

Rating: 5/10
The sixties so populer at this moment. All Rock, pop, r&b, hip-hop artists recover the sixties again. Duffy, a talented singer, released her critially acclaimed first record Rockferry by Polydor.
Bernard Butler and Jimmy Hogarth helped her here, you already taste some Suede aura on this record.

When i first listen to Warwick Avenue on some music video channel, i said this mostly borrows its choruses from "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". You think it's not a bad thing at all. I actually am very worried about it, what will the thema of 2000s? We just can't say that singers loved bringing back sixties' memories on 2000s. In fashion, they also bring same old catalogue again becuse of lack of creativeness. If she can provide a record sounds more original, that time with her trembling voice she will one of the most popular female singers season like Amy Winehouse.

Without doubt, Sleeping Stone steals melodies from Burt Bacharach and Dionne Warwick's amazing Walk on By. Rockferry sounds like a bar singer's first album with a lot of sixties music. despite my fifty-fifty rating, this is recommended to nostalgia lovers.

Highlights: Warwick Avenue, Sleeping Stone, Hanging On Too Long
