Editors’ Notes

Duffy resembles Kylie Minogue as much as Amy Winehouse, which isn’t a bad thing in the least; it’s better that Duffy and her producers chose not to out-soul her neo-soul peers. The sassy, catchy “Mercy” and the aching “Syrup & Honey” show traces of Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin, but Duffy sounds most like herself on “Delayed Devotion,” a song that forgoes nostalgia and delivers instead a very sharp and well-written contemporary pop song. Elsewhere, spacious, string-laden songs like “Distant Dreamer” and “Rockferry” owe as much to producer’s Bernard Butler’s former band Suede as they do to soul records from the Sixties and Seventies. All of these elements converge on “Warwick Avenue”, which balances radio-ready pop with vintage soul and Brit-pop drama. Duffy doesn’t have the grit of Amy Winehouse, let alone R&B queens like Aretha Franklin or Gladys Knight, but Rockferry gives us something almost as good: a well-designed contemporary female pop record that absorbs the atmosphere of classic records without resorting to imitation.

Customer Reviews

This girl has a BIG future!!

Ever since I heard the fabulous single Mercy - with that huge voice which simply blows you away - I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this album. Having listened to it through a couple of times, it's difficult to pick a favourite track, although Syrup and Honey has to be fairly near the top of the list. This singer has hit the ground running as far as debut albums go. With moody tracks like Warwick Avenue, thru pure blues numbers such as I'm Scared and Hanging on Too Long, Miss Duffy has arrived with a real bang on a scene which has been dominated by the likes of Amy Winehouse for the past few years. On the evidence of this collection of 10 superbly delivered songs, the bar has now been well and truly raised and this Welsh songstress surely has the brightest of futures ahead of her.

Duffy takes you back to the 60's

Take a deep breath and let Duffy take you back to the 1960's and album Dusty would be proud of. Amy and Adelle should be leaving the stage door now and Duffy should be top of the bill, her Welsh accent just melts you. Stepping Stone has you singing 'if you see me walking down the street' before she launches into her own song. So to sum it up from 'Rockferry' to the no1 song 'Mercy' and the highlight for me ''Warwick Avenue' may Duffy be bringing the 60's back in true style.

Taking The SoulTrain To Rockferry....

I absolutely love Duffy. I have for at least three months ever since i first heard Mercy on the radio. It has been one of my fave songs for ages and i couldnt't wait for her album. Now that ive got it I'm Not dissapointed! Rockferry is a lovely album full of soulful classics which i thought be get a bit boring afer a while but they're gorgeous! I Love Love Love the tracks and heres my opinion on them: *Rockferry (A nice ballad but only kicks in halfway through) *Warwick Avenue (Awesome song sounds as gorgeous live as it does on the album) *Serious (A little upbeat motown-esque track, very soulful) *Stepping Stone (Its nice but possible my least favourite song it just a bit bland compared to the others) *Syrup & Honey (A showcase for her vocal abilities, pretty much is a live track) *Hanging On Too Long (A slow burner but when the chorus kicks in your blown away) *Mercy (Obviously Most people will know this song now! The most up tempo song on the album) *Delayed Devotion (Another up-beat song but not as great as Mercy or Serious Nice vocals and strings though!) *I'm Scared (Strange that a subject like death and heartbreak can sound so good! Beautiful and enchanting) *Distant Dreamer (A powerhouse ballad to finish, great closer for a gig as well. The Chorus can get a bit grating after a few listens but i still like it.) Overall this is a brilliantly soulful album completely unique to Back To Black by Amy Winehouse (Even though comparisons keep rolling from people) I like all the songs on there and her vocals are out of this world! She should be around for a long time.....


Born: 23 June 1984 in Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Emerging during the same boom of retro U.K.-based singers that launched Amy Winehouse, Duffy distinguished herself with a melodic, vintage voice that brought to mind such '60s artists as Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark. Born in the small coastal town of Nefyn on the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd, Wales, Amy Ann Duffy began singing at an early age. With a record collection limited to her parents' classic LPs, though, she had few influences to draw from. Her father's VHS tapes of the 1960s television...
