  1. Nelly's latest offering is hopefully the beginning of the renaissance of an artist who most definitely was starting to look guilty of selling out.
  2. On his fifth album, he mostly sticks to that pop-rap formula, cranking his distinctly melodic flow to hyper-speeds and playing the good-natured hedonist on cuts like 'Party People.' But when he tries to come off hard on a handful of Dirty South brawlers, he ends up sounding generic
  3. It’s sure not a knockout, but it’s his hardest-hitting album yet. Just don’t call it a comeback.
  4. 50
    This is what Nelly's Brass Knuckles is best summarized as...a club jam.
  5. There’s nothing that’s boldly offensive or immediately dismissible, save a few slight missteps.
  6. Brass Knuckles sounds less like the product of a fighter who's ready to go back into the ring than one who's stalling for time.
  7. Airplay or not, however, he's also sounding seriously dated.
