Product Description


Blame it on the bossa nova, but this chick has got soul. By filtering her Portuguese roots through the trip-hop she was weaned on, Nelly Furtado creates a hypnotic form of R&B/alterna-pop that at times sounds like Fiona Apple, Macy Gray, and Gwen Stefani all rolled into a Portishead song. Cutting her teeth at four Lilith Fair dates before even having a record contract, Furtado seems far accelerated beyond her 21 years. Listen and you can hear the Portuguese fado tradition, Brazilian beats, flashy urban rhymes, enough snap-crackle-and-pop to fill your breakfast bowl. Put your ear closer to the speaker, though, and you can sense that this is the sound of a multicultural young woman finding her own identity through all the pop she's been fed. If you are one of those types who likes to sing along to soaring vocals--or one who likes to get hip to a new star before she goes supernova--this is an album to own. --Heidi Sherman

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best debut albums I've ever heard July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When Nelly Furtado released her debut album in 2000, critics loved it but that was pretty much it. Then she released "I'm Like a Bird" and people started snatching up this album pretty quickly. Many thought she would be a one-hit wonder, but then she released "Turn Off the Light" and scored another big hit. I bought this CD because I heard "...On the Radio" and decided to finally give her CD a chance.
This album did not disappoint. I was very impressed by how unique and original this album was, considering it was only her first album. Rather than try to sound like others, she crafted her own unique and instantly identifiable style her first time out. Her voice is as cool and different as her music.
1)Hey, Man!: great song to start the album. I love the violin at the beginning.
2)...On the Radio: this is an excellent song. She strikes down all those fake people who like an artist until they start getting famous, so they start hating that artist because they "sold out" and it's the cool thing to do. In this day and age, this song really means a lot.
3)Baby Girl: another great song. I love the chorus and the beat.
4)Legend: good song. This song has a really cool sound.
5)I'm Like a Bird: her signature song. It was overplayed, but it is still as good as the first time I heard it.
6)Turn Off the Light: I love this song. Everything works here. The video was also very memorable.
7)Trynna Find a Way: really cool beat. It has a good feel to it.
8)Party: another good song.
9)Well, Well: the chorus is great. I like this song a lot.
10)My Love Grows Deeper Part 1: good song. I like the line "My love grows deeper everyday and takes a little piece of me."
11)I Will Make U Cry: I love the beginning.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok, Nelly April 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Overrated to the extreme, this debut is not bad for a mainstream pop album, but it`s hardly as good as many claim. So Nelly Furtado makes a somewhat interesting mix here, combining diverse influences from hip-hop, bossa nova, trip-hop to fado or R&B. While it works at parts, it still is way too uneven and inconsistent as a whole. Furtado`s voice ranges from exotic and peculiar to tiresome and irritating, delivering a flawed hit-and-miss effort that at least tries to offer something new and refreshing to the current pop scenario. The album has a couple of good moments, like the melodic opener "Hey, Man!", the urban "Trynna Finda Way" or the catchy single "Turn off the Light", while most of the other songs are just curious yet nothing special experiments. Given that "Whoa, Nelly!" is just a debut, it indeed shows some promise, presenting a sometimes appealing roots fusion. It`s also interesting to see how she incorporates her portuguese backgrounds into her music.
Deserves a listen, still it`s far from a keeper.

2.0 out of 5 stars It holds a special place in your used CD store! Feb. 13 2004
By Megzi
Format:Audio CD
Well, I think I bought this CD for the same reason everyone else bought it: for 'I'm Like A Bird' and 'Turn Off the Light'. At the time the second single came out (circa fall 2001), I really enjoyed both of them and considered buying her album. Then Nelly disappeared for a while and I almost forgot about her. This past year for my birthday I ended up getting 'Whoa, Nelly!' as a gift. At first I actually enjoyed the cd. I played it for about two weeks but then that was it. It ended up in the dusty part of my CD collection. About a month ago I heard her new single 'Powerless' off her new album 'Folklore'. I thought about buying her new album but then decided I should maybe listen to her old one first. Wow. This album in the most polite way... reeks. I mean, I still like the song 'I'm Like A Bird'. It's the only decent song on here. That and 'Well, Well'. But I can't stand the rest of the cd. Not even 'Turn Off The Light'. Listening to this gives me a headache. People may think she's unique for mixing an unusual combination of latin sounds, hip hop, folk, r&b, and pop. But it's like pouring these sounds into a blender. What you get will not taste too good. Sorry Nelly fans. But this one is for the used CD bin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Talented Vocalist. Fantastic Music! Jan. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have loved this album, since I first heard "Turn Off the Light" & "I'm Like a Bird" (two of my favorite songs). For a long time, the airwaves and television were permeated with Nelly Furtado's music, and I enjoyed every song, video or performance.
Then, when the airplay dwindled, I felt compelled to purchase the album. I have played it, subsequently, more times than I can possibly remember. I love to put the album on while doing housework, or just for ambient music, or to crank it up and just dig the Vibes.
I very rarely enjoy an entire album, and normally only like 2-5 songs on a CD. However, I thoroughly enjoy each and every song on Nelly Furtado's album--the music, the vocals (!), the stories, et al.
I am looking-forward to purchasing her latest album, as well. I've enjoyed the Launchcast videos, as a preview.
Nelly Furtado has a very unique sound--her voice and the amazing fluctuations she can produce are soothing, powerful, emotional and humorous. I can actually see her smile, or grin with sarcasm, etc., as she sings. She obviously poured her emotions into her music. The music, itself, is very catchy. The grooves, vibes and beats stay in my head, lingering afterward. I love this CD.

That's what I have to say to this young artist, for I applaud her for doing something different. To label her music simply as 'pop' is unfair. Read more
