Loose

Performers Nelly Furtado

Dreamworks SKG | June 20, 2006 | Compact Disc

Loose is rated 3.5455 out of 5 by 11.
On her third studio album, LOOSE, Nelly Furtado largely abandons the bohemian vibe of previous outings, opting for an energetic, club-ready sound said to be influenced by the time she spent recording in Miami. The Canadian-born singer-songwriter approaches this significant change with wild abandon, as revealed on the sensual singles "Promiscuous," a remarkably catchy dance-pop tune that features Timbaland, and "Maneater," a leering, techno-tinged track. The percussive "No Hay Igual" finds Furtado delving into reggaeton, while "Te Busque" presents the soulful vocalist performing a melancholy duet with Colombian heartthrob Juanes. Though some Furtado fans may initially be perplexed by this dramatic sonic shift, repeated listens reveal the record's charms, particularly on the soaring, synth-laden opener "Afraid" and "All Good Things (Come to an End)," a thoughtful pop ballad co-penned by Coldplay's Chris Martin (who was once rumored to be her boyfriend). An unpredictable and assured album, LOOSE proves that Furtado can wander down unfamiliar stylistic roads and return with fascinating results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dance tunes! Reminiscent of 80s Madonna

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile , Daring and Gutsy! Nelly, has done a fantastic job at challenging herself and tackling new ideas. She has expanded her creativity and thus proved that a true artist should not be limited in imagination and expression!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loosely Done I loved the first two CD's but now I'm embarrased to ever have called myself a fan of her. Sell out indeed. Her My Space says she's in the USA (compared to Daniel Powter who has the Okanagan on his space) to add insult to injury. What group is she trying to appeal to? I haven't heard the track with Coldplay's Chris Martin, which really sparked my interest at first in the album, perhaps this will hold some redeaming value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sell Out Can we say SELL OUT? I know we can. I heard Promiscuous and wasn't a fan, but thought that the rest of the cd wouldn't be TOO bad. I was wrong. Very wrong. Disapointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from following the trends with electrocrap Nothing more than teeny bopper dance garbage. Her first 2 albums were great but it looks like Nelly has sold out for the hip hop bandwagon and increased sales versus a quality album. Not worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get your Dance on! If you're looking for a cd to become your summer soundtrack, look no further than Nelly Furtado's third release Loose. I can't get the first track Promiscuous out of my head. What I like about Nelly is that she exemplifies what Canada is, a cultural mosaic. She's not afraid to express her vast musical influences. Her collaboration with Timberland compliments her music well. Stand out tracks are Maneater and Glow. This cd reminds me a bit of Black Eyed Peas crossed with Gwen Stefani imprinted with Furtado's signature cosmopolitan style. If you're into quality dance music also pick up Madonna's Greatest Hits Volume 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her Best Yet This new album is Nelly's best yet, I love her new style. I have not taken her cd out of my player since I got it. I also just recently saw her in concert and she sounds amazing live and it has made me watn to listen even more. Best of all she's a canadian girl and she definitely rocks in this new album.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nelly Does It Again!! The continous re-invention of her music is what makes her a star. She has such an amazing and unique sound and she does it all without losing who she is and where she comes from. You go girl!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Revolutionary transformation! This CD is awesome! I have always had a high appreciation for Canadian artists, and music to the like. Nelly Furtado has taken hip-hop in her own hands, and has created a memorable collection of beautifully rendered beats and vocals that show how she has evolved as an artist! I highly reccomend this Cd for any music lover who appreciates a great diversity of music!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I love nelly because each record is different, musically your not listening to the same song 12 times. Juanes is on this record!!!! He is one of the BEST spanish singers out there today. If you likes the previous two records and the mix bag on them then you'll love this one
