My current favourite is I'm Scared.

Easily my favourite album of 2008. I don't even think Usher will beat it.

I so want to buy the album, I just think that it will be re-released at some point. The original release only has 10 songs and I think that is not enough to spend 16 Euros.

Yeah same. I bought this yesterday on impulse, and I'm so glad I did!

Duffy has been added to the long list of female singer's along with Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Beyonce to sing the James Bond themetune!
When asked she replied "Well, a lady never exposes her secrets."

Listening to this album right now. It's still such a great and timeless album. Really one of my favorite albums of last decade, if not my favorite.

Indeed, amazing record.

Unfortunately the follow-up was mediocre. She's working on a new record at the moment.

Yeah, this is a great record. Such a shame her sophomore was about 10 times worse than this.
Warwick Avenue is still my fave! :D

I think I might be the only one in this world who prefers 'Endlessly' to her debut. :oops: 'Rockferry' is a fine record, but 'Serious', 'I'm Scared' and 'Distant Dreamer' could never grow on me.

She took about four years I believe to make this album. The b-sides and unreleased Rockferry tracks are even better than all the songs on Endlessly :lol: :lol: :lol:

This was a good album. Shame she vanished into obscurity.

She disappeared far too quickly and some of the stuff on her second album was good! I loved the title track and Warwick Avenue the most, I can't really bear Mercy anymore.
