When Nelly released "Sweat" and "Suit" about a year ago, it was met with unpleasant reviews and sales. But, somehow, "Suit" tended to sell more than what "Sweat" could afford. So, to make the wrongs right again, Nelly felt that it was possible to rerelease the album and just make "one" whole album. Well, it is a little too late for that. 14 songs made the cut from both albums, which include "Over and Over", "My Place", "Heart of a Champion", and "Na-na-na". Along with these songs, are three brand new songs, including the hit single "Grillz" with Paul Wall, Big Gipp & Ali of St. Lunatics. However, even with these songs, it does not help with what has been damage already. This seems more as a "Greatest Hits" between the two albums. So, if you are debating which two albums to buy, either "Sweat" or "Suit", just buy this cd. But, if your expecting something new and exciting with this album, you will probably be disappointed.

Listening to this album is just like putting on the thickest sweatsuit you can find and going for a really long run in africa. Dehydrated and dying rapidly. Nelly helps with this dehydration of hip hop by constantly creating infantile BS songs. I am sick of this monotonous, commercial, ignorant so called "hip hop". When will the zombies and sheep get tired of hearing the same song over and over and over again? Avoid this rehash of Sweat and suit as if it is a newly found strand of AIDS. Shakespeare?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?! WTF!!!!!!!!! LOL......if shakespeare wrote his plays like nelly writes his lyrics, the masses would've first stoned him to the point of death and then burned him at the stake.

This album is really tight cause it Is combined with 6 songs from Sweat,and 7 from Suit. There is four new tracks. They are Fly away,Grillz,Tired,and Nasty girl. Another reason it is good is because the people that did not have sweat or suit can get thirteen songs from sweat and suit plus four new tracks.I just got this album yesterday and I think it is really tight. So buy this album. Explicit or clean,it dosent matter to me.

Matthews top 5

1.Grillz feat. Paul Wall,Ali,And gipp

2.Fly Away

3.Na-nanana-na feat.Jazzie Pha

4.Flap Your wings

5.Over and over

Nelly's Sweat Suit (Universal) is the latest double Hip-Hop CD (technically) to drop since 2Pac's monumental All Eyes On Me started the trend. With few exceptions, most notably Outkast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, the dual disc format in popular music has served no purpose, other than to break the pockets of prepubescent idol worshippers with substantial disposable income. In a new market where savvy consumers can legally preview and download only the songs they like via services such as the itunes Music Store and Napster, Hip-Hop fans are no longer forced to buy an album, let alone two. Double albums are a tough sell. But with nearly every song on this 24-track album boasting at least one well-known guest artist, Nelly is poised to join the platinum-plus double disc club.

Not to be outdone by Outkast's genre-bending double solo project, Sweat and Suit are being marketed as two separate Nelly albums; Sweat as the fast and dirty album for the clubs and Suit as the laid-back R&B joint. Sweat starts off with "Heart of a Champion" using a beat interpolated from "Roundball", a song better known as the theme song from the NBA Playoffs. The brief moment of nostalgia induced by the familiar melody is hampered when Nelly's meager lyrical prowess is exposed with uninspired lines like "I've been dogfightin, scratchin and clawin on every height / Tryin to make you remember me like you Remember the Titans". However, his many shortcomings as an artist can be overlooked on tracks like the Neptunes produced "Flap Your Wings". It's one of those guilty pleasures where the relentless rhythm and contagious hook displaces the need for content. The shameless use of the "panting on the hook" technique and the frequent recitation of Martin Lawrence's line "sweat drippin' all over your booody" didn't hurt either.

The "Oh No He Didn't" moment on the Suit album goes to "Over and Over", a song for the "sensitive thugs" featuring country music singer Tim McGraw. In the years since LL Cool J's timeless classic "I Need Love", the rap ballad has taken many twists and turns. This one is a turn for the worst. The track sounds like co-producers Jayson Bridges and James Hargrove hit the demo button on their Casio. With Nelly and McGraw crooning throughout the four minute track, the song sounds like it should be on American Idol rather than a rap album. An unexpected highpoint to this otherwise bland offering is "River Don't Runn" a dubbed out departure from Nelly's typical club friendly sing along formula. With a fairly decent impersonation of a culture riddim, invigorated by Stephen Marley from the legendary first family of reggae, "River" works moderately well and is one of the best tracks on the album.

A notable tidbit is the absence of "Tip Drill" a song that received vehement protest from women at Spelman College who were appalled by its semi-pornographic video featuring Nelly swiping a credit card down the crack of a video chick's ample posterior. But scrapping the controversial song doesn't save Sweat or Suit from its monotonous regurgitation of sex and excess. Although Nelly fans will not be disappointed, the album sounds like a hastily thrown together Top 40 compilation. Nelly lacks the charisma necessary to sustain a double CD. There is undoubtedly some material that will invigorate dance floors and have urban radio on lock for months to come, but Nelly's banal, assembly-line approach to creating music makes the overall listening experience of Sweat and Suit bland and forgettable.

This album is Bananas...B-AN-A-NA-S! Nelly does it again by combining his best songs from Sweat and Suit together on one cd plus adding a couple of new tracks to get your attention to re-buy SweatSuit and he does a good job at can't be mad at him....if you're feeling his new single "Grillz" you'll love the other new cuts(Tired and Nasty Girl--a remake of Big's song from Life After Death and the song is featuring B.I.G 2).....I give this album 5 stars! Go out and buy it! Even if you own both Sweat & Suit still go out and buy SweatSuit now you won't have to keep switching CDs to hear all the tracks you love!

The good things about this album are: 1. 3 brand new songs, 2. some of Nelly's best songs

The bad things about this album are: 1. sweat had 13 songs and suit had 11 songs, couldn't he add them together and add the new songs? 2. some of the songs that aren't on sweat or suit are on other albums (nasty girl - duets:the final chapter and fly away- the longest yard sountrack). 3.he could have just released sweatsuit instead of releasing sweat and suit also 4. he likes ripping off his fans
