Customer Review

on 4 January 2005
The expectancy for both Sweat and Suit to be better than their predeccesors was phonomenely high, and Suit not only meets the expectations but passes with flying colours. The fact that, to date, only 'My Place' has been released as a single adds to Suit's originallity. There is not three good tracks and then ten space-fillers, there are ten good tracks, two remixes (on to them later) and one dire song.
The bad first. The two remixes do no favours to the originals. 'Ride wit me' sounds like it has been mixed with John Mayer's 'No Such Thing', proving you can't breed a cat with a dog. 'Dilemma' has some annoying scratches, but it's bearable.
Then there's 'Paradise'. "I could be the one in her search for a man, and she could be the one in my search for wo-man" is just one of the bad lines in the worst track on the album. The song is soley about Nelly's conversation with Paradise (a women). It's a let down to say the least.
Enough of the bad stuff, we move on to what makes this such a good album.
'Play it off' features Pharrel Williams and is an excellent start, possibly one of the best songs on the album.
There's 'She don't know my name'- more upbeat lyrics, it sounds like a song inspired by Outkast, and it sounds good.
'N dey say' is about the struggle of life and features Spandau Ballet's 'True' (I think) as a backing track.
'Pretty Toes' is about girls, and then what did you expect from a Nelly album ?
'Woodgrain and leather wit a hole' is about a car. It's obscure subject aside, the song is actually pretty good. It also has a handy explanation at the start for the less educated.
'Over and Over' features the vocals of Tony Mcgraw, and is another contender for the best song of the album. It's the second single to be released from Suit in America.
There's 'Nobody Knows', another song about the struggle of life, and 'In my life', my personal favourite. Uplifting, fun and it has some sort of bongo drums in the backround.
Overall it's definately worth a tenner. One of the best albums I've bought, and now I can't wait for Sweat to come :)
