    While not explicitly a concept or homage album, Endlessly captures a retro American sound reminiscent of sock hops and drive-ins so subtly, that the album could have been called Effortlessly.

I try not to focus on comparing artist albums with there previous releases - but i can't help it. Rockferry sold 6.5 Million across the globe and was met with outstanding reviews, it won a Grammy award and won the prestigious 'MasterCard British Album Award' at the Brit awards, and for the right reasons. This album however is lacking, not lyrically, but i feel vocally is where is album fails. Duffy has an incredable voice, her vocal range is outstanding (Warick Avenue at the Brit Awards for example) - but for the most she does nothing catching on this album, just when you think she's about to belt out a note or two she just doesn't. I'm a huge fan of Duffy, but i am very disappointed with this album. Although saying that - 'Well, Well, Well', 'My Boy, 'Don't Forsake Me', 'To Hurt to Dance' and 'Love Struck' are by far the outstanding tracks on the album, and i know 5/10 isn't bad - but when i say outstanding, i mean better than the rest, but by no means do i mean as good as Rockferry.

    If "Rockferry" was a interesting and good album, "Endlessly" is repetitive and it's not good. With all the respect but for me Duffy is theIf "Rockferry" was a interesting and good album, "Endlessly" is repetitive and it's not good. With all the respect but for me Duffy is the classical artist that has a big success with the first album and then disappears. I hope that now she'll takes a break form music, for return with a good album like her first. ( sorry for my English ) Full Review »

    Ah, the tricky second album, for some it remains, for some it destroys, for some it improoves and for Duffy it didn't really do anything. It'sAh, the tricky second album, for some it remains, for some it destroys, for some it improoves and for Duffy it didn't really do anything. It's a good album, it has a lot of likability, you cannot help but find her music interesting. It might not be the most groundbreaking music of all time, but it's retro at it's sweetest. I hate to compare artists albums, i like to take them for the individual record that they are, but at times you want Duffy to belt out a note or two like she did on previously, i mean, she won a Grammy for 'Best Pop Vocal Album' and sold 6.5 Million copies of Rockferry, her voice made her the star she is..why didn't she use it on this album ? Comparisons aside, this album might not be able to hold it's own against the likes of Adele's 21 or Imelda May's Mayhem but it quite frankly **** all over Jessie J's Who You Are. Full Review »
