N.E.R.D are without doubt my favourite band, one that seem to always produce great tracks, ones that you can listen to over and over.
'Nothing' delivers the quality no doubt, with some great songs...which would fit on their past 3 CD's with ease.
However unfortunately the quantity isn't really there, the CD only lasts for 36 minutes, a significant drop from previous albums where each of those lasted between 56 mins to 1 hour in time length, 'Nothing' is essentially halfed.
So I believe that the CD quality; the songs, are great and are definently N.E.R.D, albeit a slightly different style, but it's perhaps too short.
With that said you may want to wait a tad until the price drops, but know that your getting some great tracks.
This will probably go down as their 4th best album out of the 4, but with my very high evaluation of the first three.....it was gonna take some beating.
8/10 (would have been better if it was longer)
