The Dutchess [Deluxe] [Clean Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Through all the twists and turns taken by Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson during her 20-year career as an entertainer -- including a stint on Kids Incorporated, background vocals for Martika, two albums with adult contemporary/dance-pop group Wild Orchid, and superstardom with Black Eyed Peas -- she has always sounded as if she is trying really, really hard. That has been the lone consistent characteristic of her output, and it remains in effect throughout The Dutchess, an album with all the characteristics of a release fronted by someone who has been itching to go solo and prove herself, once and for all, as a versatile force all her own. Fergie does cartwheels and handstands, ...

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Through all the twists and turns taken by Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson during her 20-year career as an entertainer -- including a stint on Kids Incorporated, background vocals for Martika, two albums with adult contemporary/dance-pop group Wild Orchid, and superstardom with Black Eyed Peas -- she has always sounded as if she is trying really, really hard. That has been the lone consistent characteristic of her output, and it remains in effect throughout The Dutchess, an album with all the characteristics of a release fronted by someone who has been itching to go solo and prove herself, once and for all, as a versatile force all her own. Fergie does cartwheels and handstands, juggles three objects at once, balances books on her head, hangs upside down, rides a unicycle with her hands in the air -- all these things while wearing different outfits. The whole process, produced mostly by fellow Pea will.i.am, is mildly entertaining. There's throwback hip-hop ("Fergalicious," done to the tune of J.J. Fad's "Supersonic"), throwback soul ("Here I Come," done to the tune of the Temptations' "Get Ready"), reggae ("Mary Jane Shoes"), ska-punk ("Mary Jane Shoes"), scat ("Mary Jane Shoes"), vaguely torchy midtempo fluff ("Velvet"), and a classy string-drenched ballad (the appropriately titled "Finally"), among several other passable switch-ups. "London Bridge" is terrific, provided you can block out the lyrics or prevent yourself from trying to decipher its meaning. One of the more convincing songs on the album, "Big Girls Don't Cry," sounds exactly like a 2006 version of Wild Orchid, with Fergie's Taylor Dayne kid-sister act in full effect. [The "Deluxe" edition of the album, released in 2008, adds four bonus tracks, and a clean version if it was made available.]

    Fergie's 'deluxe' edition doesn't give us enough new material make us re-buy the album.

    Now if you have the standard edition of 'The Dutchess' than don't waste your time buying the 'deluxe' edition. All it contains is 4 songs which includes 'Party people' featuring Nelly, 'Barracuda', 'Labels or love' and a remix to 'Clumsy'. Yes we get internet access to videos but seriously we could have used a DVD? And the same videos we can find on You tube. But if you don't have the standard release and want the Fergie- The Dutchess than the deluxe edition is actually worth it. I don't think I'm planning on buying the deluxe edition when I have the standard. When you have a deluxe edition your suppose to have at least more than 5 songs and if you don't have extra songs you should have a DVD to back it up. But when you have only 4 new songs and just access to videos which are available on You tube it really isn't worth re- buying. The songs are okay. But half of them are just remixes and a song originally owned by Fergie.
