As it turns out, Loose incorporates a number of different styles along its journey, but is--surprisingly--primarily divided between '80s-influenced electronica and latin-infused pop. This disc is very different from Furtado's previous CDs, a fact immediately evident from track one, the new wave-affected "Afraid." A strong opener, the song is the beginning of a 1-2-3 punch of uptempo, infectious dance floor beats. The second cut, "Maneater," also proves to be incredibly catchy, but the verses and keyboard sound too much like they were plucked from electroclash artist Peaches' tree, and originality is lost. The perfect summer pop song follows, the massive hit "Promiscuous," which features clever interplay between Furtado and Timbaland on their sassy duet. From that point, Loose oscillates between the Miami-affected sounds of R&B, Latino pop, and reggaeton ("Showtime," "Te Busque," and "No Hay Igual" respectively) and the aforementioned '80s vibe ("Glow," "Do It"). Fans will hear Furtado at her vocal best on "Say It Right" and "In Gods Hands"--two of the most lyrically compelling tracks on the disc. --Denise Sheppard

BTW, Jewel did not "sell out" with the 0304 album. If you listen closely to the lyrics, she is mocking the pop world that seems to be controlled by talentless Britney Spears and her peers.

One album is the import CD, it's already been released in another country, and you get it now for $32. The other is the US release, which doesn't come out until June or so.

It bothers me that the US version doesnt have Chris Martin on the "All Good Things" Track.

|Only $8.88 what does that tell you||
If anything, it shows how popular it is. I don't know what it says to you, but what the low price says to me is that Amazon bought this CD in massive quantities so they can sell it at a low, low price and therefore sell more of them and in the end make more of a profit. Learn some simple... Read More
