Anyone Else And It Would Be A Classic

by Nerd King on 7/31/2006

The acclaimed Skateboard P, releases the most antcipated album of the year but it isn't enough. From an artist of his caliber, we need more. The mistake of going 100% solo from his partner Chad Hugo on even the production was something he must regret. But don't get me wrong if this was released by any other new artist they could get away with it. Or maybe if it was a Double Disc CD with Disc 1 containing the genre Hip Hop/Rap and Disc 2 containing the genre of R&B. But really and truly I love this album and i've played it excessively. What has been said above is what majority say and think. But i'm a fan to the duo and whatever they do, whether with Shae Thorton (other N*E*R*D member)or other artists and the beats, I enjoy so i'm staying as a loyal fan enjoying every classic beat, old school sound and rhyme. But I can honestly say that out of my 124 collected Neptunes/Pharrell productions these 15/16 tracks do not sit among the best 20 at all (and I have'nt even got "Grindin" among the 124). As I quote from Williams himself in Mr Me Too "Like Dude Snoop Say, Step Yo Game Up" So in future, step it up P. Thank you for your time.

Product Overview

It would be cliché to say that Pharrell Williams needs no introduction. This Grammy-winning production wizard has been making the soundtrack to your days, nights and everything in between for the past few years. He is not only a master at producing, but also a member of the band N.E.R.D, the CEO of Star Trak Records, the CEO of a new clothing label BBC, CEO of his own sneaker line called Ice Cream and the spokes model for the Louis Vuitton fall campaign. Heralded by the press and the industry as a force to be reckoned with, he releases his solo debut In My Mind. The album highlights a diversified man, featurning 7 rap songs and 7 R&B songs, with guest appearances from Gwen Stefani, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nelly, Pusha T, Slim Thug, and Snoop Dogg.

As a member of the massively influential recording teams the Neptunes and N.E.R.D., Pharrell Williams slowly made a name for himself in the late 1990s and early 2000s as one of the hottest producers on the scene. IN MY MIND, from 2006, is the artist's first full-length solo album, and it brims with Pharrell's trademark production flourishes and cross-genre sampling.
The overall feel of IN MY MIND falls somewhere between hip-hop and urban contemporary R&B, whether on the spare, electro-funk beats of "Keep It Playa" or the smooth, seductive groove of "Baby." A figure as in-demand as Pharrell can get just about any guest he wants, and the list for IN MY MIND is an impressive one: Slim Thug, Nelly, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and Gwen Stefani, all of whom were Pharrell clients at one point or another, make appearances. The artist's own vocals and MC skills aren't quite equal to his expertise behind the boards, but the shortcoming is easy enough to forgive, thanks to the album's carefully constructed, dazzling sonic treats.
