    Much like Brass Knuckles before it, 5.0 might just be another forgettable release from the St. Lunatic.

    "Just A Dream" was a great opener to 5.0, and when I saw the critic and user reviews I was shocked. Nelly dropped a solid album, and I"Just A Dream" was a great opener to 5.0, and when I saw the critic and user reviews I was shocked. Nelly dropped a solid album, and I appreciate it much more now that the inferior "M.O." is out. A nice, smooth pop-rap sound that is very mellow. Full Review »

    A great comeback for Nelly. This album is on the same level as Sweat and Suit, with some of the best racks he's put out in years. ThoughA great comeback for Nelly. This album is on the same level as Sweat and Suit, with some of the best racks he's put out in years. Though there are a few disappointments such as "I'm Number 1", and the half sung "Long Gone", other tracks more than redeem the album such as "Go", "Making Movies", and of course "Just A Dream." One track that stood out in particular is Nelly's "Gone", featuring Kelly Rowland. This song brings back memories from the classic "Dilemma." Overall, this is a classic and distinct album that marks the return of Nelly. A definite buy. Full Review »
