Product Description

Dignity isn't for sale. It comes from within. Hilary Duff has always carried herself with dignity, from her 2001 TV debut starring in "Lizzy McGuire," through big screen hits like "Cinderella Story" and "Cheaper by the Dozen," to her career as a multi-platinum recording artist, with more than 13 million albums sold to date. Now Hilary brings her customary class and splash to her new Hollywood Records CD "Dignity. At 19, Hilary has matured into a sophisticated singer and songwriter. Hilary has co-written all the songs on 'Dignity', always aiming high and ultimately creating an album of depth and consequence. To realize her vision for the new CD, she teamed with Grammy-Award winning Kara Dioguardi ( Gwen Stefani, Pussy Cat Dolls, Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Clarkson), as well as top producer/songwriters like Chico Bennett & Richard Vission (Madonna, Usher, Killers), Tim & Bob (Nas, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez), Vada Nobles (Rhianna, Lauryn Hill, Faith Evans, Natasha Bedingfield, Warren G), Fredwrecke (Snoop Dog, Eminem, Fergi) Will.I.Am and Rhett Lawrence. In the title track, she talks about her experiences and observations of living in Los Angeles ("Where's your dignity/I think you lost it in the Hollywood Hills"). "Danger" explores the suspect advances of an older man, while "With Love" turns the world's most common song topic upside down. ("I can take your honesty/All your words weigh heavily/I'm listening to you all the time"). The song 'Stranger' reveals a relationship that is picture perfect in public, but cold behind closed doors. With every track, Hilary probes life and love more intensely, and with more vulnerability than she has before. This is the standard version.

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, 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

This is definitely my favorite of Hilary's three studio albums. It's dance/pop music at its best. Her voice may not be the best, but with every song's lyrics co-written by her, she is able to convey a more relatable sound to the songs. Highlights on the album include the two singles With Love and Play with Fire, Gypsy Woman, Happy, and Burned, but all the tracks are really good.

The DVD included in the deluxe edition is fantastic as well. It contains all nine of Hilary's music videos (Why Not, So Yesterday, Come Clean, Our Lips are Sealed, Fly, Wake Up, Beat of My Heart, Play with Fire, and With Love) and a 33 minute interview with Hilary at her home that goes through her entire career, and includes some commentary in the interview on her videos and albums.

The price is definitely worth it for this album. So go out and buy it!

I used to buy Hilary Duff's music because her CDs were among the rare "clean" ones I could let my girls listen to. Her first two CDs (Metamorphosis and Hilary Duff) were bearable if the volume was turned down really low. Most Wanted was better due to talented sound engineering. When I bought Dignity I thought it would be more of the same, however this one is outstanding! I listen to this CD even when the kids aren't in the car. The music is good and the lyrics are intelligent (unlike most of her contemporaries.) She'll probably never have a great

singing voice, but Hilary's got class- unlike most of her contemporaries. Bob Dylan wasn't a good singer either.

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".

If you've followed this girl's musical path or are just now arriving as a listener this is one strong album either way. Other reviewers in the past have mentioned being converted after taking a young person to see her live. This record comes closest to capuring the energy of her live shows and as more of an adult effort it speaks to what she has to convey and it's the real thing. The shift to more of a dance beat is superb and shows more insight than trying to become another indie rock clone. I think she is just getting started! This japanese deluxe version is pretty stunning in presentation (as they usually are) and is well worth it if you can do it. The exterior case photgraphy is very cool and the jewel case itself seems to feature the other Japanese cover art for the regular version. The photobook is great and the bonus track is a DJ kaya remix of With Love. The DVD includes a "making of" video about the photobook which the U.S. version doesn't have. Already one of my fav ten cd's in my collection.

After not having released an album with fully original material since 2004's self-titled sophomore disc, Ms. Duff delivers the surprisingly grown up 14-track dance/pop Dignity. While similar pop starlets went the dirty route when `maturing' the former Lizzie McGuire star sets out just to have fun. From the addictive beginning beats of "Stranger" to the rock and dance ending gem "Play With Fire", Dignity is purely pop fun that will keep your toes moving and head bobbing. Granted as most albums have, a few of the tracks are filler material. Rating: 4/5


Dignity - The title track is a playful stab at all the self-absorbed girls of Hollywood (Paris Hilton? Nicole Richie? Lindsay Lohan?). Stating "Where's your dignity? I think you lost in the Hollywood hills. Can't buy my respect, but you can pick up the bill." Truly a novelty song that flows with the rest of the fun. 4/5

With Love - The second single and one of the best on the entire album. With Love has a great beep and guitar hook, saying "You can be tough, say enough is enough, you can even be blunt... just do it with love." 5/5

Gypsy Woman - Basically scorns against loose woman who cheat with taken men and move on to the next one with no guilt. Duff claims it's about her father cheating on her mother. No matter who it's really about, Gypsy Woman is a song that will have you moving. 4.5/5

Happy - "I'm happy and I know that makes you sad, if it were up to you I'd be in my bed crying." Duff exclaims on the self-empowerment Happy. One of the more rock songs which delivers just as well. 4/5

Play With Fire - Noticeably produced by Will.I.Am, Play With Fire mixes dance and rock to deliver a fun anthem that can be blasted from your car radio... with only some shame. 5/5

I'd have to disagree with Mr. Cherry on a number of counts.

While I concur that the production is perfection, I think that her vocal are at their best. B/c Hilary wrote this album, what she sings is with meaning. Though it is the sounds of great producers, I think Hilary draws it all together.... Read More

New CD, New perfume... great expectatives
Thanks for stating your opinion Kjell but unlike you I happen to like Hilary Duff. I don't think her music is stupid at all. She is very good at what she does and deserves alot of credit. She has been working hard constantly for some time now. She hasn't taken breaks like other celebrities she is... Read More

Bonus tracks worth getting?
I think it's just two remixes. Walmart version actually comes with a whole bonus remix disc with 5 mixes of With Love, Play With Fire and Come Clean. That's what I'm going for.
