iTunes Review

Six years after her last English-language studio album, 2006's Loose, Nelly Furtado continues to seek inspiration from the club beats and techno-influenced productions that brought her to national attention, but with additional approaches that smooth out her sound. "High Life," which features a perfectly set rap from Ace Primo, best illustrates how Furtado and producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jenkins work a variety of guests and styles into a mainstream sound. Nas joins in for "Something," produced by Salaam Remi, who also handled the board duties for a duet with Sara Tavares on the glorious, dreampoppy "The Most Beautiful Thing." While these special guests add an extra boost, Furtado does just fine on her own and says much about her natural abilities amongst all the technology. "Bucket List" has a melody that's simply gorgeous. The album's closing track, "Believers (Arab Spring)," is a dramatic anthem that rocks, bounces, and expresses the triumph of the human spirit.

Love this album!

Haven't gone through every single track yet but this is definitely on of the best albums released this year.

Bigger but not better

Nelly doesn't know who she is as a pop star and after 4 albums I think it comes off a schizophrenic. I miss the Nelly from Whoa Nelly and Folklore time period, she was fun and care free. The turn with Timbaland was enjoyable, but almost out of place. This album comes off as trying too hard. She tries to do so much all at once like Christina Aguilera did with Bionic. That didn't work either. The production values are huge, but that does not mean they are better. Neither of the first two singles has taken off--people just aren't feeling it. The best parts of those songs are the fun bridge parts ("The Bigger the better..." and "AEIOU" portions), but the verses are annoying at times. Sadly. I'm a big fan (truthfully--waited until 11pm last night to download right away), but she needs to figure herself out. The lyrics are trite and almost cringe worthy at times.

I do very much enjoy Parking Lot and Something. I think if these were the first two singles she would have received some airplay.

Better luck next time. I think I wasted bucks. Spend a few and just download the two songs mentioned above.

I missed you, Nelly! XOXO

Im so happy to hear her voice again! my first pop singer when I was a child back in 2000.

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...
