Australian edition features the bonus track (13) "Onde Esta". Please check your local tracklisting.
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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
Deserves a listen, still it`s far from a keeper.
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.

When Nelly Furtado first came out, I couldn't stand her voice and image. She seemed like a spoiled-brat with limited singing talent. Read morePublished on Jan. 18 2004 by ac_mcfa82
