  • Summary: Think of 'Suit' as 'The Love Below' to 'Sweat's 'Speakerboxxx.' Where 'Sweat' is the more party-oriented of the two discs simultaneously released by Nelly, 'Suit' showcases the rapper's gentler side, and includes collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Tim McGraw (!), Mase and Pharrell Williams.

  1. Nelly sounds more convincing and appealing on Suit [than on Sweat]. [17 Sep 2004, p.75]
  2. In his world, being grown and sexy doesn't mean being complacent - it means being curious, maybe even brave.

    There are plenty of surprises on Suit. [Oct 2004, p.184]
  4. Anchored by predigested melodic hooks, Nelly's songs seem composed with the sole intention of ending up as your next ringtone. [Combined review of both discs]
  5. 50
    Its fizz fades fast. [Dec 2004, p.142]
  6. Suit represents Nelly going smooth and seductive for an entire LP, and it is about 9,000 times as bad as that sounds. [2 Oct 2004, p.63]

    Oh..Wow!! This c.d made the charts so hot, Nelly did his thang from start to finish with this c.d. This man works hard to keep his image and Oh..Wow!! This c.d made the charts so hot, Nelly did his thang from start to finish with this c.d. This man works hard to keep his image and this c.d shows it. Another thing that I love about this album is that Nelly actually opens up to his fans and he tells more about his life in this c.d. Expand

This set is modern R&B with melodies and depth and great guest turns. The strength of ?Suit? is what makes ?Sweat? such a disappointment. Expand

    Pretty weak compared to "The Reinvention"... I'd rather listen to "Suit".
