Customer Reviews


Mr Special has done it again, another great album that I can’t stop listening to, its constantly on repeat on my I-pod. The songs are so beautiful and brilliant! I especially love 'Why does anybody love' and 'Mocking bird wish me luck' Well done Duke! =D

a treat for the ears

This album offers such variety and depth and is a treat for tired ears. Thoroughly recommend it. It's not like any other album you already own. First heard these songs stripped back when he did a session for our 'nvtv music' podcast and the songs just continue to grow on you as time goes on. Particularly liking 'Nothing Comes Easy' at the minute.

Another great...

Duke Special is one of a kind and a GREAT tallent... not shy of writing about dark subjects but putting a musical lighting twist. You find yourself singing with a smile about unhappiness and smile with glee as you question things... this is a good thing honestly! This is a MUST for any fan, and for anyone who just isn't sure... buy it anyway, you will not be disappoionted and find yourself singing the junty tunes long after you have finished listening which will draw you right back.
