30 May: I like this review

I like this review.
Duffy — she offers an easy recipe for good music. Her album insert is eight simple pages of black background with a selection of lyrics printed in white. The cover is a black and white shot of her face. (No black pleather leotard, with mouth open and legs spread.) And her music is a recognizable, well-sung, well-played, well-written blend of good ol’ school funk and a modern sensibility for alt-pop. The lyrics are unfussy, but then again it is refreshing to not have to ponder over seemingly impenetrable verses or be hit over the head with life-altering poetics.
