4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff! Feb. 14 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is not Nelly's best, but its pretty damn good for a comeback in his career. It can not match Country Grammer but its great "Dirrrty Rap" If it is his last CD, then he went out with a BANG!

This album lacks what made "Nellyville" such a good album. Most of the songs are ok. This is definitley better than "suit".

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapoitment Oct. 2 2004
By monica
Format:Audio CD
My expectations were much higher for this album as well as "Suit".
I was expecting a more 'dope' album like his previous ones: "Nellyville" and even "Country Grammar".
The songs aren't very 'catchy' for lack of a better word, they just are.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't sweat it Dec 21 2004
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It seems that most people either love Nelly or hate him. I always just thought he was okay. I was initially surprised that he was releasing two albums, and I was flabbergasted to learn that he was originally going to release FIVE albums. Anyway, Sweat seems to be for the fellas, so I gave it a spin.

I didn't expect this album to be all that great, but actually it's better than I thought it would be. But don't get too excited; I rated it three stars. Anyway, there ARE some songs on here that have potential to be hits, like the obligatory Jazze Pha track "Na-Nana-Na" (it's not called "Can We Leave Her" (here) like a lot of people think). And "Another One" is especially interesting due to Nelly's diss to Chingy (but does anyone really care about a Nelly vs. Chingy beef?). There are also some okay songs like "Getcha Getcha" and "American Dream" (both featuring St. Lunatics).

But there's also a whole lot of filler, like "Tilt Ya Head Back" (with Christina Aguilera) and the necessary Neptunes track, "Flap Your Wings" (by the way, what exactly does "drop down and get your eagle on" mean?). And "Grand Hang Out" (with Fat Joe, Young Tru and Remy Martin) suffers because of two things: the lame chorus and Young Tru's entire verse. "Spida Man" makes no sense at all; and "Heart of a Champion", which uses the NBA on NBC's music as its backdrop, should have never made it out of the studio.

Another thing people have probably noticed about this album is that it's just LITTERED with guest stars. This album is probably perfect for fans of Nelly, but everyone else will just say it's okay. It would be fine for a party, making Sweat live up to its title, but fans looking for substance will most likely want to check out something else.

Anthony Rupert

P.S. In response to another reviewer, "Over and Over" is on Suit, not Sweat.

By Pete - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Good on ya reviewer dave for pointing out the obvious, and of course mikki mouse, yet again, for showing that u know what u are talking about. mikki mouse is right, this aint even rap, its POP music, and i didnt even know there was a song with christina aguilera LOL that makes it even more funnier. this along with suit are 2 of the worst "hip-hop" albums ever, because they arent even hip-hop. nelly is commercial crap, just like his last album nellyville. dont support and feed out your money to a weak talentless little fool who wears a bandaid on his face coz he thinks it "gangsta". support pioneers of rap, support rappers with TALENT, support underground rap, dont support this CRAP. krs-one, rakim, slick rick, esham, eazy-e, dilated peoples, three 6 mafia, jurassic 5, styles of beyond, natas, the d.o.c., chino xl, kool keith, etc. coif u aint heard the majority of them your opinion is garbage, fo reel. DONT buy any nelly crap. (or other crap like jay-z, ja rule, dmx, eminem, 50 cent, d12, g-unit), BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE NO TALENT

1.0 out of 5 stars America is his slut Sept. 26 2004
By DukeOfEarl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow, two albums both at the top of the charts? I bet the record executives didn't plan that, huh? And the U.S. is just that easy to score off when you're a cocky pretender like Nelly. I can't believe both albums are at the top. This is outrageous. Flabbergasting. Ridiculous. Hopeless. The music nowadays (not just rap, almost every genre) has regressed and been diluted so bad that Nelly can get so much attention and hype for three albums in a row. MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, etc. were hyped up too but could not ride fame that long before being pointed out as phonies and being ridiculed. And Nelly's basically pulling the same sh*t only in today's sh**ty music world. Don't try and say otherwise.

Okay, go ahead and say that I have too much time on my hands! I do at the moment, but while I do, I'm gonna try and do something to try and stop ignorance as much as I can through this. Some artists are sellouts in that they can make real music that is meaningful but they change their agenda to make more money and appease more. Nelly is not a sellout. He's just not a very bright guy, apparently. Making true and meaningful music is most likely beyond him, and he probably grew up listening to the radio and watching videos thinking that was what rap music is. And now he is is just doing his version of what he thinks rap music is. No doubt, his bling-bling, playa, thug facade is still selling to America the slut.

I would say hiphop is dead too, but with so many 'real' albums coming out this year (Gift of Gab, Brand Nubian, KRS, Kool Keith, and upcoming De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Dr. Octagon, and possibly Tribe Called Quest) underground and old-school style hiphop is making a comeback whether the mainstream recognizes that or not. Do yourself a favor and quit listening to the radio. Do your homework and seek out albums that made a big impact in the past and still have meaning today (any type of music)! Open your eyes, quit living in the dark, slap yourself and realize that just because Nelly has MTV's and Grammy attention does not mean that he represents the best kind of music of this genre.

I will be suprised if this review gets posted. I wrote extended reviews criticizing recent Kanye West and Jadakiss albums only to have Amazon's reviewing system go down when I sent them and they never got posted. Plus, I didn't have the energy to write the reviews over again. What a conspiracy! Why doesn't Amazon advertise good albums like Brand Nubian's lastest on the main page for Rap & Hip Hop (I saw it on there for like two days)? Oh fine, go ahead and buy one or two of Nelly's albums and just plan to hear SHEER entertainment that really offers nothing or gives anything back. You'll look at this album at the bottom of your collection two years from now (or sooner) and wonder what you were thinking (or taking) and remember I told you so!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good If You Like Songs That All Sound The Same Oct. 16 2004
By firefairyangel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan of R&B, I listened to Nelly's album, "Suit" in hopes of finding some decent R&B songs. I wasn't expecting much though I was still sadly disappointed. The album was not nearly as classy as people made it out to be and Nelly is in no way a great rapper. Nonetheless, I figured I might as well give his other new album a fair shot. "Sweat" is supposed to be the more club-centred of the two so listeners should not go in looking for substance. This album features far less guest appearances than its counterpart though each album has its odd guest. (Christina Aguilera on this one, Tim McGraw on "Suit"). I'm sure just the name Christina Aguilera on this album will be enough to get people to buy it but they will be buying at their own risk.

"Heart of a Champion" has great background music though the rest of the song does not live up to that. Nelly's rap is quite average. However, the chorus does sound particularly great. The verses contain a lot of name-dropping and some shouting, which detracts from the overall quality. At least this song is a little more memorable than much of the material on "Suit". The extraordinarily irritating "Na-Na-Na-Na" is up next. The song is repetitive and grating even for a dance song although I guess if you were in a club it wouldn't matter as you can dance to it. However, wouldn't most of us be buying these CDs for listening to at our houses and therefore not be in a club? Maybe I'm reading too far into this. Also, the song is far too long considering that it isn't even that good. "Flap Your Wings" is up next and is no better. Although I didn't think this was possible, it is even more repetitive than the song before it.

As I was listening to the album, I was looking for a file on the computer and the song switched to "American Dream". It was three minutes into that song before I even noticed the song had changed at all. That says a lot about the album: a lot of the songs (and I'm only on the fifth one) blend together. However, it is not the good kind of blending that makes it a coherent album; it's the kind that makes every song undistinguishable. "River Don't Runn" (why does Nelly keep insisting on adding extra letters to his words?) is up next and sounds exactly like the two songs before it. Even though this features Murphy Lee of the St. Lunatics, nothing is done to make this song stand out. It merely sounds like good background music with Nelly droning on over it. "Tilt Ya Head Back" with Christina Aguilera is up next. It is far from Christina's best work but it is a welcome addition to this album. However, unlike say, Usher and Alicia Keys, Nelly and Christina have very little vocal chemistry. Christina gives her usual great performance but Nelly could have done better.

"Grand Hang Out" is a little better for the simple reason that it is slightly more memorable than most of the other songs. I'm pretty sure this song features someone, as the rap sounds as though it was done by multiple people, though no one else is credited. Also, there is a part done by a female rapper so it is odd that no one was credited. The song however is at least a minute too long. "Getcha Getcha" is a typical club song. All style and no substance. It is repetitive and the cheers in the background are grating. Even dance songs can have substance. Artists like Sharyn Maceren and even T.A.T.U. managed to have meaningful lyrics into their dance songs. So really, there is no excuse as to why this song couldn't have been better. "Another One" is a very odd song with references to everyone from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air to Moses. The lyrics are very hard to follow and the beat isn't even that good to make up for it.

"Spider Man" is a misleading title, as the song has nothing to do with the character, the movie or even spiders. The song seems unnaturally slowed down and Nelly does his usual mispronunciations. ("bewurr" instead of "beware"). Am I the only one that finds it annoying? The song is once again incoherent and Nelly mentions Moses once again as well as mentioning counting his money. "Playa" with Missy Elliot and Havoc is up next. Missy sings a little (a word or two) in the beginning and actually sounds great. Otherwise, the song lacks individuality. "Down in Da Water," sounds more like a continuation of the song than a song on its own. Lastly comes "Boy" featuring someone called Big Gipp and sounds the exact same to me as a majority of other songs on the album. As least the beat in this one is somewhat different.

Overall Mark: 2/5

Overall, Nelly's "Sweat" album is no better than "Suit". It only has two memorable songs and the rest all sound the same. Nelly has yet to prove himself as a distinguishable artist. Most people only remember him for "Dilemma" and "Hot In Herre" though that may not be a bad thing as "Dilemma" was the only good song that I've heard of his (other than "My Place"). Several songs either seem to have unaccredited guest rappers (on Amazon and the internet site I was listening to anyway, maybe their names are listed on the album itself) or if not, Nelly's voice changes quite often. Even for a club album, this could use some better lyrics or at least better beats. Also, club songs should be at least somewhat memorable so people dancing to them would recognize them. Also, as I mentioned earlier, don't most people buy albums for their homes? In that case, an album purely for the clubs is probably not such a good idea.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time!!! Oct. 1 2004
By ~~~Dave~~~ - Published on Amazon.com

What is the return policy? This CD SUCKS. I painfully sat thru the entirity of this cd, Nelly Big dissapointment. I liked Nelly's first two releases, but this is no where near the quality. If you have thought about purchasing this cd, I advise otherwise. Check Guerrilla Black out instead. ~~~peace~~~
