  1. She's never sounded less eager to please or more messily human.
  2. On Dignity she makes some serious headway into turning into a mature recording artist, which makes this an effective, strangely endearing album.
  3. Her jump dancewards is curious commercially, but thoroughly worthwhile artistically.
  4. Duff edges ever closer to adult sensibilities; her goofball Lizzie McGuire days seem far behind.

    It's practically something straight out of the United Kingdom for all of its poppy goodness. [14 Apr 2007]
  6. Duff doesn't seem entirely comfortable and confident in her new image.
  7. For all its inadequacies, Dignity is a solid, cleverly-constructed pop album.
  8. Duff set out to make an adult dance-pop record, with surprisingly successful results.
  9. Dignity is bland by any standard.
  10. The album's overall bad rip-off of early Britney/current Chantal Chamandy sound is a huge step backward.

    Despite spicy production it's really all squeaky-clean. [May 2007, p.124]
  12. While the songs are undoubtedly catchy, there is little to really give Dignity and Hilary Duff a defined sound of their own.
  13. It’s bland, boring and just not very good.

    Hilary really changed it up for this album. Songs like "Stranger" "With Love" Play With Fire" and "Between You and I" have Hilary's popHilary really changed it up for this album. Songs like "Stranger" "With Love" Play With Fire" and "Between You and I" have Hilary's pop roots, but songs like "Gypsy Woman", "DIgnity" and " Burned" have a darker side of Hilary that no one's ever really seen. I applaud this album because Hilary sounds more original and less like the bubble gum pop artists of this generation Full Review »
