Product Description


In the most dignified way possible, "Dignity"--the title track to this fizz-bomb of a dance-pop disc--sends a disgusted eye-roll and a flagrant puh-lease to underwear-eschewing celebutantes everywhere: "You'd show up to the opening of an envelope," sings Duff, who hangs onto her signature sweetness despite having entered full-on diss mode. "It's not news when you've got a new bag/It's not news when you're looking your best/Come on, give it a rest." Well said. And sung. Not that calling out the phony and the full of it is what Duff, or Dignity, is all about. Mostly, the disc is a beat-studded chronicling of an incredibly healthy 19-year-old psyche: On "Happy," she's happy despite an ex's attempts to make her miserable; on "With Love"--maybe her catchiest, most grown-up song to date--she's willing to accept rejection as long as kindness plays a role in its delivery. Musically, with the help of groove-conscious producers like Tim & Bob and Will.i.am, Duff edges ever closer to adult sensibilities; her goofball Lizzie McGuire days seem far behind. It's an evolution anybody could have seen coming, actually. Has there ever been a starlet with her head on straighter? --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing April 5 2007
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't sure when I bought this that it was going to be a great CD but it was. It really showed Hilary true potiental and I liked her change in music it had a bit of everything like pop,rock,techno, and dance. I also liked it because she made it a little bit more personal by writing most of the songs on this album and thats what I think made it really good.

Can't wait for the next album

5.0 out of 5 stars No Shame in "Dignity" April 30 2007
By imagak
Format:Audio CD
A most enjoyable pop product and one of the most re-playable of the year so far. As with Britney Spears or (the even more-viciously-derided) Ashlee Simpson, the issue of whether Hilary Duff can actually sing is moot here, since much of the heavy lifting for this type of teen pop is usually left to the backing musicians and producers anyways. All that matters is: Is the final product any good? The answer: An emphatic "YES!" While not reaching the delirious abandon of Simpson at her best on "I Am Me," at the very least Duff's voice is rendered unobtrusive by processing and at the very best is a playfully bouncing ball of energy that complements the poppy music, itself an amalgam of modernized retro-'80s beats that recall various shades of Blondie, the Human League, Depeche Mode, New Order, freestyle dance, Foreigner, Genesis, Bryan Adams, Pat Benetar, and more recent influences as No Doubt (itself '80s-influenced) and Spears. And like Simpson, Huff gets by here on sheer moxie. (Contrast this to the lackluster lethargy of Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton on their albums. Simply posing does not translate well on disc.) What pushes Huff's album above those by Spears and earns Huff extra points is her (or her handlers') judgment in wisely avoiding the "slow, treacly ballad" (a la "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman") that drags lesser albums down and would expose the fact that she is no Christina Aguilera. And there is something to be said for catchy lyrics that are easily sung-along to and easy to decipher. Not every album has to be lyrically challenging as those by some underground artist or even REM or Bob Dylan. (And come to think of it -- Dylan's not much of a singer these days, either, without some help in the studio! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Effervescent electronic pop April 20 2007
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Don't be fooled by that sultry over-the-shoulder cover photo - Hilary Duff's third studio album bubbles with enthusiastic electro-pop rhythms that would inspire even hardened couch potatoes to take a turn on the dance floor.

First single "Play With Fire" is about a young woman who has gotten over a break-up, and has just encountered the former object of her affection. Though not the best song on the album, it has an infectious '80s style chorus which makes up for a slightly monotonous vocal performance. Second single "With Love" is another '80s retro track and is strictly for dancing, but all is forgiven with the third single "Stranger", which has an unusual Eastern influenced beat running through it. "Stranger" mixes up the rhythms and allows Duff to show a little more range, and the lyrics are also much better than the first two singles. The song is about a couple who appear perfect in public, but this image quickly dissipates when they are alone.

And now for the rest of the album -

The title track is a wickedly funny take on the young publicity-hungry starlets, hotties and heiresses doing the entertainment circuit, and is one of my favorite songs on this album. "Danger" is another track with an Eastern influence, but although I like the beat, the lyrics make me feel really old. (The song is about dating an older man, who was born in 1974 - this makes me archaic) "Gypsy Woman" is about a woman who breaks up a family, a short track which leads into the bouncy "Never Stop", a disco number reminiscent of "Knock on Wood".

The slower paced "No Work No Play" didn't do it for me, but I like how she does the chorus lines - "Let the clouds roll in and fill the sky / Get that melancholy feeling inside".
