I didn't know what to expect from this album. I heard a few of Nelly's songs in the past and of course the hit, "Promiscuous." After hearing this album I grew fond of some sounds that were incorporated into this album. Nelly obviously has a genuine love for music of all kinds, some of the varied styles she attempts contrives of hip-hop, 80's retro, and electro-soul just to name a few. Timbaland as a collaborator, and she lets him shine for the first half of the record, as they get the party pumping. Then on the second half of the record, Nelly shows us her vintage side.
"Afraid," "Maneater (particularly)," and "Promiscuous," are great. These tracks boast Furtado's conversion by giving us some catchy, up tempo, infectious dance floor beats. "Do It" sounds like Madonna's Burning Up, and there are some '80s-like sounds within the album. "No Hay Igual," is good she blends reggaeton and M.I.A. into this track. Latin pop ballad "Te Busque," is really nice I also like the Spanish version to it. "Showtime" and "All Things (Come To An End) are all great as well. If I had one complaint about this album is that the beat is so strong on some tracks that they overpower her vocals, but she makes up for it on the slower tracks.
`Loose' is the kind of album which is set to widen Nelly's fan base and introduce people to the rest of her work. The album is worth checking out, it's wicked.
