15 Songs, 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Nearly a decade after their classic debut In Search of..., N.E.R.D. is back with their fourth full-length, another collection of hyper-produced, genre-defying party music from Pharrell, Chad, and Shae. This effort finds the group continuing to grow, embracing new sounds (though some of their trademark Neptunes presets are still in effect), and effortlessly fusing elements from straight pop, hard rock, dance-club jams, and slick R&B. "Hypnotize U" is a freaky little falsetto joint somewhat reminiscent of "Frontin'," peppered with video-game percussion and seductive whispers, "God Bless Us All" is a relentlessly positive, it's-all-good type joint, while "Nothing On You" sounds like classic Neptunes, with catchy synths supporting tales of the perfect girl. T.I. appears on the aptly titled opener "Party People," and Nelly Furtado lends her vocals to "Hot-n-Fun," but it's mostly all N.E.R.D. doing what they do best, creating funky tracks that stick in your head all day and demand to be danced to all night.

This Is one hot album they give u something to dance to but at the same time send a message to our community at the same time. Pharrells vocals are outstanding. He delivers a pitch in some songs such as it's in the air that remind you of old 60's musics.. They are music geniuses . I been and N.E.R.D fan since they just new in the game. And they gave music a different feel. I respect everything they do. I would never have s problem spending my money to support them. Keep up the good work
Pharrell , Shae, Chad
Love y'all
