Album Review

Portugese-Canadian songstress Nelly Furtado's 2000 debut album, Whoa, Nelly!, hit like a bolt out of the blue, its single "I'm Like a Bird" becoming a runaway smash. On the follow-up, Folklore, she asserts her staying power straight out of the gate; the first song finds her repeatedly declaring that she's not just a "One-Trick Pony." Where Whoa, Nelly! mixed pop, rock, and R&B production techniques, its successor goes further. The aforementioned opening track, for example, features accompaniment by renowned new music ensemble the Kronos Quartet, while "Forca" finds Furtado's celebratory exultation framed by the banjo arpeggios of Béla Fleck. The album closes on the quiet, introspective "Childhood Dreams," which slowly builds up moody, atmospheric layers of texture that neatly sign off on Furtado's bid for artistic longevity., Rovi

Customer Reviews

go nelly!

I love this album! I love its mix of acoustic, folk, world, pop, rock and ballads. Nelly made an album here that unfortunately wasn't 'commercial' enough, yet it is so original and clever. I really like the songs: Powerless, try, grass is green, explode and especially forca. Nelly is very good at changing her style of music, nd full credit to her. loose, whoa nelly and folkore are gr8. with loose nd folklore a bit more adventurous and satisfying. u go girl!

When Nelly Furtado appeared with her neo-hippie, multiculti debut, Whoa, Nelly!, in 2001, a dance-diva makeover seemed like an impossibility, but the singer/songwriter revived and sustained her career with the sexually charged Loose in 2006, in the process consolidating her position as one of the most unpredictable artists of her decade. Furtado always proudly displayed her Portuguese heritage, a distinction that separated her from legions of emerging female singer/songwriters in the early days of...
