2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing second album 18 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rockferry was a great Soul/Pop record. Duffy's good girl image combined with the albums heartfelt tracks made for the perfect companion piece to the darkness of Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black'. Unfortunately second effort Endlessly is a bit of a misfire. There are no standout tracks like 'Warwick Avenue' or 'Mercy' and the lyrics are one dimensional & overly syrupy throughout. Listening to the album it feels like the producers didn't really know what sound they were going for. On 'Well, Well, Well' (the first and only single) the music has more of a dance feel but it doesn't quite work.

Overall perhaps the biggest disappointment is that Duffy never sings at full power as she did on Rockferry tracks such as 'Serious'. Her unique voice was the core of what made that album so appealing but on Endlessly she does not display the same range. A few of the songs have their own subtle charm such as the Kylie Minogue esque 'Lovestruck' and string accompanied 'Breath Away' (which is quite good) but overall the album is forgettable and unlikely to have you hitting the repeat button. One for completists only.

It seems to have been an almost endless wait since Duffy's debut, the sublime `Rockferry', for her follow up album. Finally, here it is. But just what is it exactly?

With an original sound that reminded one of Lulu or Dusty Springfield in their prime, Duffy has tried to develop and alter her style a little bit. For me the slightly new direction doesn't work too well. She has moved away from the Phil Spectorish soul ballad backings that suited and framed her voice to a more modern sounding production that she almost has to fight against to make an impact. It doesn't quite suit her voice and does not provide as enjoyable listening experience as Rockferry. The best track on the album for me is `Don't Foresake Me', which follows the earlier style. There are good points here though - Duffy's vocal delivery is disitinctive and excellent, and there is some very good songwriting. It is just let down a bit by the choice of backing and production.

All in all the tracks sound a bit bland and samey, to my ears there are no real standout star tracks. They are all ok, and listenable, but no more than that really. With a bit more focus and a sympathetic production this could have been great, but not an album I will be returning to that often I think.

In all three stars. It's not terrible, but it doesn't really shine for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Endlessly - Duffy 12 Feb 2012
By Mike
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really wasn't sure what to expect from this CD as the reviews are so mixed; all I can say is while not in the same league as "Rockferry" it's really not bad at all; her voice is still good, again not as good as on "Rockferry" but still unique

Overall, worth buying in my opinion

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak songs and dated production 14 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
What went wrong? On her first album Duffy delivered a strong set of songs and showed an ability to sing soul with an interesting and distinctive voice. She appeared to be a real talent with a promising career ahead of her. This album is a real disappointment and she has been badly let down by her writers and producer. The style has moved towards boppy, dated, middle of the road pop that is supposed to appeal to whom? The songs are weak and forgettable, and her voice appears to have gone up a register and has lost nearly all of its interest and soul. Some of the songs are truly awful; My Boy, Lovestruck and Girl for example bop along plastically like rejects from a Steps album, and Duffy sounds like she has been inhaling helium. The slower ballads are better but only relative to the rest of the album and never reach the standard of her debut. I really hope that her career survives this disaster and she gets another chance with a better backroom team.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of talent 25 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
and what a pity, Rcckferry sounds like the third or fourth album after this one; but if this had been the first album - we probably wouldn't have got Rockferry at all! I would love to hear this album properly produced and properly sung, perferably by Duffy; on this album her voice veers somewhere between Shirley Temple and great aunt Dorothy's strained vibrato at that wedding you couldn't avoid. Come on Duffy, you've got the voice, you've got the talent and after the long wait in between the 2 albums this album really was greatly anticipated.

Hope that the real Duffy comes back and produces the kind of material you would expect from the girl who brought us her first fantastic album,

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware follow-ups 7 April 2011
By Mr. P. Johnson VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I should start by saying that I really like Duffy. She is cute and quirky, and her love-or-hate croaky voice really works for me. I played the CD of 'Rockferry' until it wore thin, and I had this one on pre-order, waiting with bated breath. Very few modern pop stars manage to follow their big hit records with the same standard, then they disappear without trace. Exceptions to this are Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Lady GaGa, who all moved things up a gear. I cannot fully describe my disappointment with Duffy's efforts here. I had revelled in the Northern Soul retro, and power ballads of her debut CD. Alright, she doesn't move or dance well on stage but that is only for the video generation. I don't need to see the singer to appreciate 'Warwick Avenue', and so many of the new artists today are little more than video performers, without substance when just listening to their CD's. I can only imagine that Duffy has taken some bad advice on this one. The up tempo tracks sound like an early Lulu, or Kylie in the 80's. The slow songs are reminiscent of the petticoat songstresses of the late 50' and early 60's, with bubblegum lyrics and dated melodies. If this was intentional, it just didn't work. If it was unintentional, then it is a disaster. Poor construction, lyrics with no substance, repetitive choruses, and poor Duffy straining to reach (and usually failing) the high notes. I still want to believe in Duffy but I felt like I wanted to squeeze some lockets into the speakers at times, as her signature croak broke down completely. One more chance I think. I will await the next release with some foreboding. Unfortunately, this CD is destined to end its life as a coaster, with my drink resting on it as I enjoy another listen to '21'. The 2 stars are for the memories of 'Rockferry', and the nice picture on the cover. I would also like to mention that this was not an mp3 download but the CD.
