words of old skool wisdom

If you ever hear about a new artist, and they/she/he are described as "Just like --insert name here-- only better!!!!" run away as quickly as possible. 

Case in point: Duffy. Just like Amy Winehouse!!! But less crazy!!! As bat-shit crazy poor Amy has become, her music has true depth, while Duffy is the sanitized big-label cash-in on this crazy hot retro style all the housewives are digging right now. Duffy gets on my nerves witha sound that is one dimensional. I really wanted to like her, but I can't.

Ms. Winehouse, please get it together and show us that you have more than one brilliant album in you. Otherwise, we'll be stuck with labels shoving pale imitations down our throats, trying to pass tin off for gold and platinum.
