4.0 out of 5 stars In my opinion........, 30 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Nellyville (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. Definately for mainstream Rap fans, this album oozes with attitude and can't possibly fail to get you in a great mood. Fun for the blokes with it's humour and style, great for the girls with irrestitible beats that will leave you swaying those hips and feeling positively bootylicious!
