One of the best debut albums I've ever heard,
This review is from: Whoa, Nelly! (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.
8)Party: another good song.
I highly recommend this CD. Nelly Furtado blends so many styles of music (pop, trip hop) into this album you can't really put label on it. The only real way to describe it is with one word: fantastic.
