Once again, Duffy is able to keep his listeners on edge by not doing anything remotely expected. Sure, the smooth voice and wonderful melodies are still present, but now Duffy seems influenced by the harder edge of '90s Brit-pop artists such as Blur, Oasis, and the like. Luckily, he is able to make it work. This CD has a harder edge to it, but it is still a treat to the ears. Duffy continues to write topical lyrics, mixing his own personal life ('London Girls') with political commentary ('Ghetto Child'), all set to toe-tapping, guitar driven pop music. Duffy is able to finally show off his electric guitar talents, and this alone is justification for the existence of this CD. He really is a very talented and creative player, mixing in interesting solos, as well wonderful acoustic playing, not too far adrift from his Lilac Time days (just listen to the incredibly, almost heartbreaking 'Rachel'). This is a well-crafted album, full of great sounds, and enough surprises and variety in the pacing of the music to keep the listener hooked. BMG. 2005.

"Wow, what a great album, and yet so different to what Mr Duffy has done before. A punchy britrock album, with all the trademark songmeister tunes. Mr Duffy delivers once again, proving that he truly is one of Britain's greatest songwriter."
This is not a new album!

"This album is just a repackaged version of his Duffy album which did come out eary 1990's and IS britpop at its best. Don't get me wrong, a fantastic album - perhaps his best - but it's from the 90's not 2005/2006!
