  1. Granted, Nelly's rapping here is more restrained and insubstantial than ever, but when you have a cast of collaborators like this, the actual rapping is beside the point -- these are fun songs, plain and simple, and wonderfully catchy to boot.
  2. Both [discs] combine into one excellent combo platter, proving Nelly as one of the most clever and effusive pop minds around.

    Nelly sounds more convincing and appealing on Suit [than on Sweat]. [17 Sep 2004, p.75]
  4. In his world, being grown and sexy doesn't mean being complacent - it means being curious, maybe even brave.
  5. As much as Nelly likes to portray himself as everybody’s favourite fun-filled club star, “Suit” suggests that writing thoughtful, intelligent and enduring R&B is where his heart really lies.

    In these moments of reflection, Nelly emerges as a serious songwriter who moves the mind as effectively as he does the body. [26 Sep 2004]
  7. Nelly pushes crossover so far on a few of these tracks a few of his more hardcore fans may be turned off, but frankly since this is a concept album songs like "N Dey Say" are what I expected from "Suit."

    There are plenty of surprises on Suit. [Oct 2004, p.184]

    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. Full Review »
