4.0 out of 5 stars In my opinion........ 30 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm a devoted fan of Hip Hop and R'n'B, but this is actually the first Rap album I have ventured to buy - and it won't be the last. I'm really impressed (and pleasantly surprised) by Nelly's new LP "Nellyville."
I fell in love with the first two singles from the album. "Hot in Herre" gets all asses shakin with it's infectious chorus and smooth production (we wouldn't expect anything less from the Neptunes). And in contrast is the simple and sweet "Dilemma" featuring beautiful vocals from Kelly Rowland.
Other highlights of the album include appearances from Justin Timberlake in sexy tune "Work It" and Toya in the catchy bonus track "Stick Out Ya Wrist." "Oh Nelly" also stands out as a potential release.
Being slightly reluctant to purchase my first Rap album I was happy to find that the tracks are in no way samey and relentless. Nelly uses a variety of content and tempo, as well as several collaborations to make the songs different and distiguishable.
For the "Grammar" fans Nelly includes "CG 2" a funky second part to his massive breakthrough single "Country Grammar."
For those of us who are sick and tired of listening to violent rappers, it's nice to hear "Nellyville" and "Say Now." Both tracks are penned by Nelly about these sorts of issues and a hope of a world without them - very refreshing!
"Nellyville" may not be suitable for hardcore underground Rap fans - it's far to commercial and is edging dangeroulsy close to a more Pop friendly area of Rap (as most artists do when they reach mainstream status). But it's still Hip Hop on the whole, and most important of all, it's fun!
With a variety of sounds and the funny skits that have become essential to the Hip Hop album, "Nellyville" lives up to the hype.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nellyville? that's not on the map is it? 20 Feb 2005
By "mwgtn"
Format:Audio CD
I'll just check my atlas but i'm sure it isn't! Anyway forget the name, we're here because of the music, and i like it! Nelly has established himself as a big playa when it comes to rap/funky-music-of-some-sort and this album demonstrates why! Hot in Herre is fantastic with the chorus being ever so catchy and easy to sing along to. '#1' is another hit as it shows Nelly bragging about his talent and skill - but hey, it ain't bragging if you can back it up! (That's not my quote i stole that from Muhammad Ali - apologies big dude!). Two words - buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good and bad, depending on what you want. 14 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you buy Nellyville looking for a Hip-hop album to put in your collection between Wu-Tang Clan and 2pac, then you will be disappointed. In that case, the only song which is remotely good is Roc-The-Mic, which features Freeway, Murphy Lee and Beanie Sigel.
But, if your less of a Hip-hop fan and more of a casual music listener, there will be loads of songs here that you'll love, including the classic Hot in Here.
So if you want some good Hip-hop, don't buy this, but if you listen to various music styles and have an open mind, get this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hip-Hop Revolution!!!! 30 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is possibly one of the greatest albums ever made, with versatile beats and even Nelly singing! Instead of dwelling deeply on his past, Nelly celebrates where he is at right now with songs like 'Splurge', but still recognises the tough times in songs like 'Say Now'. Nellyville takes hip-hop to a whole other level...
The skits on tracks 2, 8, and 19 are funny however many times you hear them (and I've heard them plenty of times)unlike many album skits...
'Nellyville' is an excellent opening track depicting Nelly's world where even the Projects' are rich...
'Hot in Herre' Nelly meets the Neptunes and makes another hit(need I say more?)...
'Dem Boyz' A harder sounding beat, but still one you can dance to...
'Oh Nelly' Again, one of the harder beats but still gets you bouncing...
'Pimp Juice' A rocky hip-hop one, Nelly put this one on cos his daddy liked it...Pimp juice is anything that attracts the opposite sex (Get the album to find out the details!)...Nelly SINGS on this one, and be scared, he's actually quite good...
'Air Force Ones' Very very catchy...
'On The Grind' Catchy, bouncing, bouncing, bouncing...
'Dilemma' This song features Kelly from Destiny's Child proclaiming her love for Nelly (?!)...The beginning doesn't do the song justice, with Kelly singing 'Nelly I love you, I need you, Nelly I love you, I dooooo' which makes the song seem like a complete farce. However, once it actually starts, the mix of Nelly rapping about falling for a woman who already has a man and a son, and Kelly's brilliant vocals, plus smooth beats, make it a great song...
'Splurge' is a song for Nelly's haters...'You see the magazines and me on your TV screen and you think you know me but you really don't'...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Hot 19 May 2003
Format:Audio CD
To be honest I only bought this album because I heard 'Dilemma' and was hoping the rest of the album was as good...it wasn't. I respect Nelly for doing his thing but this is an album that does not do his talent justice. Nelly on this album seems like a pop artist trying to stay bad by throwing in the odd curse. 'Dilemma' is a very good track but its Kelly that makes it for me. Nelly reminds me of Ja Rule, as a pop artist trying to get out of a rappers body. 'Country Grammer', 'EI' and 'Ride Wit Me' were fantastic tracks that were like no other at the time, its a shame he could not repeat that brilliance with this album. Im no music critic but I know what I like, and sorry Nelly but this album is a pig in lipstick - meaning a bad album trying made to look pretty with its stand out track 'Dilemma'.
