Hot Nelly!

by vndgrace@adelphia.net on 3/25/2007

I enjoyed most of the album. There were a few forgettable songs, but overall very entertaining and a nice mix. Say it Right is my favorite.

Album Notes and Credits
On her third studio album, LOOSE, Nelly Furtado largely abandons the bohemian vibe of previous outings, opting for an energetic, club-ready sound said to be influenced by the time she spent recording in Miami. The Canadian-born singer-songwriter approaches this significant change with wild abandon, as revealed on the sensual singles "Promiscuous," a remarkably catchy dance-pop tune that features Timbaland, and "Maneater," a leering, techno-tinged track. The percussive "No Hay Igual" finds Furtado delving into reggaeton, while "Te Busque" presents the soulful vocalist performing a melancholy duet with Colombian heartthrob Juanes. Though some Furtado fans may initially be perplexed by this dramatic sonic shift, repeated listens reveal the record's charms, particularly on the soaring, synth-laden opener "Afraid" and "All Good Things (Come to an End)," a thoughtful pop ballad co-penned by Coldplay's Chris Martin (who was once rumored to be her boyfriend). An unpredictable and assured album, LOOSE proves that Furtado can wander down unfamiliar stylistic roads and return with fascinating results.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Timbaland brings her back on LOOSE to scat her quirky high-school-musical vocals over his mostly Eighties beats..."
Entertainment Weekly (p.68) - "Much of Furtado's charm comes from her low-key, girlish sensuality....The most striking songs are in Spanish." -- Grade: B-
Q (p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[M]uch of it is an inventive, hip-hop-inflected delight."
Q (p.118) - Ranked #55 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Promiscuous' features the booming tones of Mr. Land himself, alongside Furtado's breathy, come-hither vocals."

Quotes
Dot Music The most relevant reference points for "Loose" are Gwen Stefani's "Love Angel Music Baby" and Justin Timberlake's "Justified"...
New Musical Express As thrilling as Gwen, as badass as MIA.
Observer Music Monthly This is glorious, 21st-century Technicolor pop...
The Guardian ...slick, smart and surprising...
The New York Times ...an addictive, deceptively lightweight album of electronic pop; at different points it evokes Janet Jackson, M.I.A., Gwen Stefani and Gnarls Barkley.
