  1. Nelly's taste in beats for "Sweat" is almost impeccable, and it's easy to imagine three or four of these songs all being singles.
  2. These are easily Nelly's best albums so far.
  3. While some of the posturing about his bling--as well as the repetitive dirty South beats--might get a little tired, this one is guaranteed to keep it hot in herre all night.
  4. Nelly mixes hip-hop energy and pop ebullience like it's no sweat at all.
  5. Sweat’s the obvious keeper for those looking for the follow-up to Nellyville.
  6. 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]
  7. Even by Cornell's extremely shallow standards, this is unbelievably lazy production. [Joint review of both discs.]
