Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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/alternapop 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 accelerated far 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're someone who likes to sing along to soaring vocals or who likes to get hip to a new star before she goes supernova, this is an album to own. --Heidi Sherman

4.0 out of 5 stars Soaring! October 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
For those of us who had heard much about Nelly but hadnt actually heard her music or her wonderful voice, her recent appearance on Jay Leno's show singing her beautiful first single 'Im like a bird' was introduction enough.
Nelly's music is arresting. From the opening numbers to the closing song, what strikes the listener most is that each of the songs could be a potential hit single, something last witnessed only on Alanis Morissette's 'Jagged little pill'. Nelly sounds nothing like Alanis, but what she manages is nothing short of extraordinary.
'Whoa, Nelly' seems like a careless album title, but its not. Once you listen to the album, you know that it captures the singer's spirit and her vibrancy perfectly. It also indicates that this is a fun album - no soulful dirges a la Sarah McLachlan and no pointless poetry like Jewel's.
This album is one of those that will set a trend - Nelly has bridged the gap between pop music and folk culture, Spanish dance and tribal chants. While there are traces of Lauryn Hill influenced hip-hop, the album remains fresh and original throughout, and evokes Joni Mitchell in patches.
One thing is certain : 'Whoa, Nelly' brings to the fore a beautiful and remarkably gifted new songstress, and I can't wait for more of her work. In the meantime, you sure will be listening to this one for much of this year. Yes, its that addictive.
Kabir Ahamed.

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Show me another artist who has the same sound as Nelly Furtado....give up yet? She's created her own sound by combining latin, hip-hop, folk,and a little bit of rock. Can you say awesome?
1)Hey, Man!-Soaring guitar and string arrangements and a great chorus make this a superior opening song. 5/5
2)Sh-t on the Radio-Another song with a great chorus. The song's about Nelly telling somebody off. Sounds like a latin-y song with Alanis-like lyrics. 4.5/5
3)Baby Girl-I really like the jangly guitar at the beginning. This is another latin-y song that you can't help dancing and singing to. 5/5
4)Legend-At first listen I didn't really like this song but it's grown on me. I especially like in the middle of the song where it does this little breakdown thing. I'm not really sure how to describe it but it's cool. Nelly's voice sounds the best on this song. 4/5
5)I'm Like a Bird-Even though I've heard this song countless time I still love it. There's not one bad thing about this song and it's rally fun to belt it out at the end. 5/5
6)Turn Off the Light-This is my all time favorite song! There's almost a dreamlike quality quality about it and the chorus is amazing. Very uplifting. 5/5
7)Trynna Finda Way-I think this song is supposed to be about Nelly's road to fame but I'm not sure. I like how the verses are spoken and the lyrics are great. 5/5
8)Party-This is like a samba or a rhumba or one of those latin dances. A very different kind of party song and is fun to do funky latin dance moves to 4.5/5
9)Well, Well-The happy-go-lucky song on the album. The beginning is rather annoying and cheesy until the beat comes in but be sure to listen to the whole song because it's pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite cds! April 17, 2001
By Rachel
Format:Audio CD
Nelly Furtado is going to become a diva. Her cd rocks (although the first time you hear it you might regard it as a little strange) But after you listen to it a couple times, you hear the real beauty. Her words seem like they are coming from a much older person, but she is only 20 years old! Don't let her age fool you, she was doing Lilith Fair before she even had a record out! That's how good she is. She's opened for U2 and she is going to have a few shows with David Gray. Anyway, about the cd... Hey Man! A very strong opening song. .... On the Radio is very cool, it talks about her waiting to be heard. Baby Girl is pretty good, but its not my favorite song. Legend is a smooth song with her Portuguese flavor added. I'm Like A Bird, well hopefully you have heard that. Turn Off the Light is one of my favorite songs, she's saying words so fast you have to try to catch up with her. Trynna Find a Way is weird the 1st time you hear but it grows on you. Party this is another smooth song that was on the Brokedown Palace soundtrack. Well Well is one of those happy songs that makes you feel good.My Love Grows Deeper Every Day has 3 different melodies that sound like something you've heard before but you haven't. I will make you cry is a very frantic song that is strange, but it too grows on you. Scared of you is a very pretty ballad that is in English and Portuguese. Just letting you know: Nelly is NOT the Canadian Britney Spears or a poorman's version of Alanis or Jewel! SHe is better than all of them! SHe writes her own music, none of her songs sound the same and she is completely unique! Buy this cd and you'll love Nelly's music too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff September 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This Lady stopped me in my tracks. I generally hate contemporary pop music. This is really different. She has a marvellous delivery. The backup musicians are excellent. The production values are top-notch. The beat is infectious beyond belief! I don't care what genre of music you listen to, this CD has got to at least be listened to for you to form an opinion. My bet is that it will capture you instantly, as it did me.
