Read this if you are positive minded and love music.
on November 14, 2013
I don't usually get long winded rating something on amazon, but I am this time. This information is for positive open minded people that love music. But first...there are people out there that described Nelly as a hack, sings with a nasal tone, not talented. To those writing about Nelly or any artist in a negative way...why are you so negative? If you don't like what you hear, listen to someone else! That's why there are thousands of recording artists out there. Does it make you feel important vilifying someone? OK, I am off my soapbox.
You might say that I've rediscovered Nelly recently. I had the pleasure of seeing one of her very first live performances where she sang, I'm like a bird. I new she was raw but had an interesting sound. I have been in the music business since I was 14. I am 64 now and have performed just about every kind of music you can think of. Addressing Nelly's nasal sound...not all songs are like that, I think some are done on purpose by voice and or in the studio mix. I don't mind it and there are only a few anyway. If you have listened to Nelly the past 13 plus years you know that she has experimented with all types of music. She can go from raw and raunchy to angelic. A few of my favorites are, Turn off the light, On the radio, Maneater, Say it right. I can tell you that most of the recordings are simple musical backgrounds ( even though they don't sound like it) and are quality sound mixed. If you have not experienced her music, I suggest you go on line and watch some of her videos. I hope this information has been helpful. Smile today and enjoy life!
