Product Description

With over 20 million albums sold worldwide with The Black Eyed Peas,the pop icon is ready for her solo debut. From performances on every major TV show throughout the world and appearances on dozens of magazine covers, Fergie has been in the spotlight since an early age - including a starring role on the hit TV show Kids Incorporated, as well as a member of Wild Orchid. Fergie's solo debut - The Duchess - is produced by will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas and features a range of songs which showcase her unbelievable talent as one of today's leading vocalists. Be prepared for Fergie to revolutionize the sound of the future...

Amazon.com

If you thought Black Eyed Pea-sized bites of Fergie might be all you could handle--that a full plate of Fergie is possibly too much for any discerning musical palate--The Dutchess might change your mind. For here the lumpen lady throws caution to the wind and threads her pop needle with an ambitious ribbon of yet-to-be-conquered genres: reggae and ska on "Mary Jane Shoes," with Rita Marley; vintage soul on "Here I Come"; '80s hip-hop on "Fergalicious"; and sophisticated R&B on the John Legend-assisted "Finally." It's a tremendous and unpredictable expenditure of effort that mostly pays off--echoes of more talented vocalists like Pink, Beyoncé, and Christina Aguilera poke through in places. But while unbridled messing about can pay handsome artistic dividends (here, the guitar-propelled rock-like track "Big Girls Don't Cry" coughs them up), ultimately it's when Fergie's at her Peas-iest that she's most lovable; cases in point are the raunchily irresistible "London Bridge," which earned every week of its chart-topping success, and the will.i.am-assisted "Clumsy," a girl-group-styled bump-a-thon that showcases Fergie's coolest and most distinctive asset--her personality--to winning effect. --Tammy La Gorce

Fergie is one of those artists whose style is not easy on the ears (or the eyes). To like her takes a little sense of humor, some perplexing preferences, and the ability to not always take music serious. To define her is rather hard, but she is somewhere in the middle of R&B star Kelis and pop star Gwen Stefani. This album "Dutchess" is not for the faint ears. The beats are wild with heavy sampling from some surprising artists. What do you expect from a woman who made a song called "My Humps"? This is fun music. Her goal was not to make a political statement or to reveal her inner self. She is making a record to introduce herself as a solo artist and for the people in the clubs dance the night away.

Vocally, Fergie offers many surprises. She shines on songs like

Voodoo Doll- an almost jazzy number mixed with rock

Finally- she almost sounds like X-tina on this song, but this song is one of the most "pop" songs on this cd

Velvet- sultry with a hint of Sade.

On Production. Fergie's producers went out their way to give her a sound all her own. She samples from some of the most surprising sources, too. Examples are:

Here I Am- she boldly sampled the Temptations classic "Get Ready"

Mary Jane Shoes- she sampled "No Woman, No Cry" from the great Bob Marley, but his widow backs Fergie on the tracks.

Lyrically, Fergie is weak. I cannot make up my mind if this is intentionally or if she really cannot write. Whatever the case, Fergie gives us some surprising (and funny) moments.

All That I Got (the Make-Up Song)- Fergie writes "Would u love me if I didn't work out or I didn't change my natural hair"

Fergalicious- Fergie writes "My body stay vicious. I be up in the gym just working on my fitness".

I purchased this product as a gift for my daughter. I purchased the "clean version". I enjoy Fergie and her music but would prefer the foul language were left out, so the clean version is a perfect choice. Her music is classic Fergie, she sings from the heart and keeps it upbeat. She is a young lady who has been through much and it comes out in her songs. Well worth the buy in my opinion.

Fergie is an Aries. Me, a Taurus. I like her lively, fun and free-spirit, and her lyrics are super-funny, if not mindless...

"Every time I get up on a Dude/Poparazzi put my business in the news/Get up out my face/Before I spray Your a__ with mace/My looks make You wanna have a taste/"

Fergalicious - Upbeat, and the production is so addictive. Almost as bad as crack, I *assume*, thank You. 4.25/5

Clumsy - Fun beat, decent if not relate-able lyrics. 5/5

All That I Got (The Make Up Song) - Love the slowed-down, R&B vibe. Totally unexpected from Fergie, which isn't good, but great! 5.25/5

London Bridge - Lovely cause it's fun, it's sassy and definitely demands your attention. Decent pop ditty. 4.25/5

Pedestal - OK beat. Unnecessary as a whole. 2.5/5

Voodoo Doll - Much better than Pedestal. MUCH better. Hot beat, very, very jazzy; smooth. Great vocals. Love Fergie. Now only if she's pen a song or four... 5/5

Glamorous - Lovely anthem about being an anti-celeb, of sorts. 4.5/5

Here I Come - Really cute. 5/5

Velvet - Crazy-dreamy beat, and vocals that just melt your soul. Seriously, We may JUST have to watch out for this Chick. If She starts to write, then She will be more than an Entertainer - An Artist, She will be! 5.5/5

Big Girls Don't Cry - Nice, modern-time ballad. 4.25/5

Mary Jane Shoes - Samples "No Woman, No Cry" and many People will hate it for that reason! But I like it. The lyrics are far from deep, and speak on nice, Mary Jane Shoes. My aunt who is also an Aries, is the same - Super-crazy bout shoes! haha. Decent song. The rock anthem part is wicked. I love it. Pop-Rock at its funnest! 4.4/5

Losing My Ground - A ballad(?

Let's start this review off by stating that I am not a kid, I just simply do not have an account. Ok, now for the review.

Wow. Just wow. This is seriously some of the most pathetic music (if you can even call it that) I have heard in ages. It's almost painful to listen to because of its extreme mindlessness. Let's put it this way, when I first heard "Fergilicious" on the radio (by accident) I seriously thought it was a joke. I didn't even think that it was a real song, because as I was listening to it I was thinking "There is no way a radio station would play a song that is this bad". So, you can imagine my horror when I discovered that what I had just heard was the number one requested song on that radio station. Wow, I think Fergie just topped James Blunt for creating the worst 3 minutes ever. It is mind boggling that people enjoy listening to this, let alone paying for a cd of it. In light of all this horrible pop music being released, it brings to the surface a question I have been wondering for ages. Why don't people play instruments anymore? I mean, where have guitar solos gone? Music has been in a steady downhill slide since Limp Bizkit became popular in the late 90's, not too mention all that "gansta" rap. However, that's a whole other story. The reason for this is...brace yourself...people don't listen to music anymore. Ok, that sounds absolutely ridiculous, but it is absolutely true. People obviously don't listen to this, otherwise, there is no way they would have ever bought it. The reason why Fergie, Justin Timberlake, and all your "gansta" rap sells is because those people have been brainwashed by the record companies into buying an "image". All of you people who bought this cd didn't buy it for the music, and if you did, I seriously pity you. You bought it for the image.
